Espanyol are closing in on a deal for Liverpool winger Maxi Rodriguez.

The 29-year-old has three years left on his Anfield deal and only joined the Merseysiders from Atletico Madrid in January.

But Espanyol, where Rodriguez spent three seasons until joining Atleti in 2005, are in talks with the player's agent, says El Mundo Deportivo.

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