Everton may make a late move to trump Liverpool for Atletico Madrid winger Maxi Rodriguez.

The Telegraph says Liverpool hope to conclude a six-month loan deal for Argentina winger Maxi in the coming days.

Maxi knows he must play regular first-team football if he is to earn a place in Diego Maradona's World Cup squad.

Juventus, Merseyside rivals Everton and the Argentine clubs Boca Juniors and Newell's Old Boys are also believed to be monitoring the situation, though Rodriguez is thought to be tempted by the prospect of rejoining former team-mate Fernando Torres at Anfield.
