Rafa Benitez has another Spanish target in his sights in Malaga midfielder Juan Rodriguez.Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has another Spanish target in his sights in Malaga midfielder Juan Rodriguez.
The 23-year-old has been one of the revelations of the season in La Liga with some sparkling display for Malaga.
Rodriguez scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday night, and a Liverpool scout was in attendance to cast his eye over the young midfielder.
Benitez has not been afraid to head back to La Liga to find new recruits, and Rodriguez seems another who is on his list.
Rodriguez and Benitez both have Manuel Garcia Quilon as their agent, adding further fuel to the fire that Anfield could beckon.
Rodriguez has been a big star for Malaga boss Antonio Tapia, scoring five goals this season, and the club would not want to lose him in the summer.
For now Rodriguez says he knows nothing about Liverpool's interest and is concentrating on playing for Malaga.
