Espanyol are chasing Liverpool winger Maxi Rodriguez.

Espanyol, where Rodriguez spent three seasons until joining Atletico Madrid in 2005, are in talks with the player's agent, according to El Mundo Deportivo.

Liverpool could be prepared to let go of Rodriguez, but the Spanish side's reluctance to pay a transfer fee could be a stumbling block.

Espanyol would prefer an initial loan deal with an option to make him on a permanent signing at the end of the season.
