However MD also report Liverpool face competition from city rivals Everton and Newcastle United who are also said to be interested in the Spanish Under-21 international
Atletico paid Osasuna a reported £9 million for the Pamplona-born player in 2009 although he returned to el Sadar on a season-long loan last term after falling out with Atleti coach Diego Simeone.
