Liverpool look to have clinched a deal to sign Malaga playmaker Manuel Iturra, according to reports.
Iturra, 28, has been earning rave reviews in both La Liga and the Champions League this season and has been strongly linked with a summer move to Anfield.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is determined to see his side challenge the big guns once again next season and hopes the signing of Iturra will help him achieve those objectives.
Reports in Portugal newspaper A Bola and Italian website Calciomercato now claim a deal between Liverpool and Iturra is all but finalised.
The Chile international is out of contract with Malaga at the end of the season and he is keen to sort his long-term future.
