The battle for Racing Club striker Luciano Vietto is heating up.

Everton and Liverpool are chasing the Argentine, whose agent Jorge Cysterpiller, has confirmed contact with the Reds.

The Daily Mail says Real Madrid are the latest club to ask about Vietto.

Madrid are opening talks with Karim Benzema over a new contract but have big name options in mind should those talks stall while Vietto is seen as one who could develop with his asking price around £8million.
