Villareal interested in signing Reira

Spanish side Villarreal will make a summer bid for Liverpool's left sided midfielder Albert Riera

Riera has suffered from a knee injury this season and seems to have fallen out of favour with Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez. Meanwhile, Villarreal are in the market for a left sided player and Sport speculates that Riera would be keen on a return to Spain, although he would have to accept a drop in salary.

Liverpool paid a reported €10 million to bring Riera to Anfield from Espanyol in 2008. However, Sport predicts that the Reds would be willing to make a loss and accept a €6.5 million offer from Villarreal for the Spanish international.

Riera has 16 international caps to his name and Sport cautions that the 27 year-old may delay a decision on his future in the hope of an unlikely call up to Spain's World Cup squad.
