Liverpool are wary of missing out on Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez. The youngster is impressing on-loan at Rayo Vallecano this season.

The People says Reds boss Brendan Rodgers knows Saul has a fixed price of £20million in his contract with Atletico. But an offer of around £12m may work.

Liverpool also know that Arsenal have met Luis Antonio Niguez, Saul's father, while Chelsea and Manchester United are on the prowl.

Liverpool can probably ­offer the best chance of ­immediate first-team football as Rodgers looks for an extra capture to keep their top-four push going.
