Spanish international defender Raul Albiol is being linked with a move to Liverpool.

The Real Madrid centre-back is also rumoured to be attracting interest from Spanish outfit Malaga and Roberto Mancini’s Manchester City. However, Liverpool’s need for a central defender seems the greatest following a 4-0 loss to Tottenham and an injury to Daniel Agger.

Kenny Dalglish’s side have bolstered their ranks with Uruguay’s Sebastian Coates but with Agger injury prone and Carragher in decline, the Scot could make a January swoop for Albiol.

Albiol, 26, hasn’t featured for Madrid this season but did play for the Spanish national team in the 6-0 win over Liechtenstein.

    …This definitely not going to happen.If either Pepe or Carvalho injured..Real Madrid will borrow Albiol back…
    or if Suarez go the other way then may be?but no way Suarez is liverpool legend now..

    What’s the point in linking us with a January swoop for Albiol stating we need a defender to cover Agger’s injury, when Agger will be back long before January.

    Not going to happen; he is Spanish. We probably ‘ll go for Cahil, Showcross or Dann, for in between 12-16mn. Every top non British plaer ‘ll leave after knowing the treatment Pacheco, Acqualini, Mirales & now Kyut is getting, that too for the likes of Henderson, Adam, Carroll & Downing. Shame.

    this site is getting worse and worse, 1st you tell us we have to sell Agger because he broke his ribs now you’re trying to tell us that we will be getting cover for him in jan????
    1/ we have cover for him already (Skrtel, Coates and Wilson)
    2/ Agger will be back in 4 weeks not 4 months
    i think it’s time i stopped reading this garbage for a more intelligent site
