Skysports.com understands Real Madrid could be set to beat Liverpool to PSV Eindhoven hot-shot Ola Toivonen
Toivonen is regarded as one of the best young prospects in Europe after impressing for club and country over the last year.
Liverpool have been tracking the Swedish international all summer and are believed to have had one bid rejected by PSV earlier this month.
Reds boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed his interest in Toivonen as he searches to bring in a new forward before the close of the transfer window.
However, Spanish giants Real are believed to have joined the chase for Toivonen with Jose Mourinho's side making an enquiry for the Swede.
Liverpool were tipped to make a new move for Toivonen before Tuesday's transfer deadline, but it appears Real may have stolen a march on the Merseysiders by declaring their interest in the player.
Toivonen missed Sunday's draw with ADO Den Haag to fuel rumours of a possible move away from PSV.
