Real Madrid CF target Nigel de Jong also on Liverpool FC's radar - report

Liverpool are reportedly considering a January move for Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong, who has also been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Reports last month suggested Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho sent scouts to watch the Netherlands international in action in the recent Champions League game against Villarreal.

De Jong, who joined City from Hamburg in 2009 for around £18million, has impressed in Roberto Mancini's side this season, and talks over a new contract at the Etihad Stadium are expected to take place in the New Year.

But it is not thought that the Dutchman will put pen-to-paper on a new deal until the end of the season and according to Caughtoffside.com, Liverpool are showing interest and could look to lodge a bid before a new contract is agreed.

Although the Merseysiders spent a considerable amount of money on strengthening their midfield last summer, the loss of Lucas Leiva could force manager Kenny Dalglish back into the transfer market.

Dalglish is without Lucas for the rest of the season after he suffered a knee injury during last month's Carling Cup quarter-final win over Chelsea, leaving him short of a defensive midfielder.
