Liverpool continue to be linked with a move for Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero but Spanish football expert Guillem Balague believes that Liverpool will not get their man following Sami Khedira’s injury.

Balague has said, “Granero is an interesting one because he would love to go to Liverpool; he almost signed for them under Rafa Benitez. The problem is that although two weeks ago Real were thinking about letting him leave, now Jose Mourinho has said: ‘(Sami) Khedira’s injured and I want you to stay’. Now he’s staying.”

This will come as a blow to Liverpool as i feel Granero would be a good addition to the side. We all know that right now our main priority is bringing in a striker but we should not forget about our midfield ‘problem’ following Lucas’ injury. We really have not had some one step up and take over from Lucas.
