Liverpool are close to completing the signing of Granada defender Guilherme Siqueira after agreeing a £5million deal.
Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has made adding another left-back to his squad a priority this summer, and he is hopeful of landing Siqueira in the next few days.
The 27-year-old is currently thrashing out personal terms with Liverpool after they had a bid, in the region of £5million, accepted by Granada this week.
Manchester United and Everton are also known to be keen on the player, but Liverpool expect there will be no late competition.
Siqueira, an attack minded full-back with power and pace, has scored 17 goals in 70 matches for Granada after joining them on a permanent basis from Udinese.
He will add competition to Jose Enrique at left-back, and can also prove a useful option on the wing, following the sale of Stewart Downing to West Ham.
