Liverpool are willing to spend big to land Newcastle United fullback Jose Enrique.

The Daily Star says the Reds will splash £15million on Newcastle defender Enrique in the summer – after a frustrating four-year wait.

Ex-Kop boss Rafa Benitez tried to sign the Spaniard in 2007.

But Newcastle paid Villarreal £6.3m for the left-back nicknamed The Bull and gave him a five-year contract.

Now Kenny Dalglish is hoping he’ll succeed where Benitez failed and get Enrique, 25, to provide the ammunition for his old Toon team-mate Andy Carroll.
