Liverpool swoop for Arsenal target Nolito

Liverpool have made their presence felt in the winter transfer window by joining the pursuit of Celta Vigo's Nolito.

talkSPORT is of the understanding that the Reds are keen to go after the 29-year-old forward who has been heavily linked with Arsenal in recent months.

It looks as though Liverpool will miss out on Shakhtar Donetsk star Alex Teixeira after failing to agree a fee with the Ukrainian club and have now shifted their attention to Nolito.

Nolito, who has a £13.6million release clause, is also wanted by Barcelona but if Celta are to do business this month, they would rather it be a permanent move rather than a loan for the remainder of the season.
