Liverpool planning to bid for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez

Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez remains in the sights of Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.

The Mirror says Martinez, 21, has been on Liverpool's radar for the past two seasons but Benitez is putting together his hit-list for next season.

Liverpool sent a scout to watch Martinez at Atletico Madrid last Thursday and Bilbao are well aware of Benitez's interest.

Bilbao coach Joaquin Caparros said: "Javier is a monster of a player and can go very far."
