Liverpool among clubs eyeing move for Spanish international

Liverpool are among the clubs interested in a move for Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol say reports in British media source, The Metro.

Anfield boss Kenny Dalglish was linked with a swoop to bring Albiol to Liverpool in Spanish media reports last month, however The Metro now claim Paris St Germain, Juventus and Manchester City could also join the race for the player.

Albiol joined the current Spanish league leaders from Valencia in the summer of 2009, but the 26-year-old has found opportunities limited under Jose Mourinho and is seeking an exit route out of the Bernabeu.

City boss Roberto Mancini is looking to strengthen his back line and is said to have highlighted the experienced Spaniard as a player who would offer the quality to complement the Premier League side’s current squad.

Dalglish meanwhile, is desperate to bring some new faces into a Liverpool back line that includes the ageing Jamie Carragher and has endured an alarming slump in form in recent weeks.
