Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is considering bolstering his midfield with Valencia star Dani Parejo, reports in Spain claim.

Despite starting the season on the bench under former Valencia boss Miroslav Djuckic, new manager Juan Antonio Pizzi has handed Parejo a first team role and the player has responded by excelling after being handed more responsibility, scoring two goals and grabbing three assists in just 15 starting La Liga appearances.

According to Spanish newspaper Super Deporte, the 24-year-old has caught the eye of Brendan Rodgers, especially after his amazing performance against Barcelona early in February, where he scored a goal and led his team to a 3-2 victory at the Nou Camp.

The Liverpool manager is looking to strengthen his midfielder over the summer, as Lucas Leiva's injury has left the squad short of players this campaign.

Furthermore, Parejo's versatility in both creative and defensive roles will allow Rodgers to use him as a replacement for Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson and Joe Allen.

The talented midfielder used to be considered one of the most talented Real Madrid academy products but after failing to prove his value during loan moves away from the Santiago Bernabeu, including one at Queens Park Rangers, the Spanish giants sold him to Getafe

Following two seasons at the Madrid-based team, Valencia signed him in the summer of 2011 after paying around £5m to secure his services and the 24-year-old has finally proved to be a sensation in La Liga this campaign.

The former under-21 Spanish international has a contract at the Mestalla stadium until June 2016 but the Spanish team may be open to offers as they are in a difficult economic situation, and indeed last January they let Sergio Canales, Ever Banega and Helder Postiga leave the club.

Valencia and Liverpool have a good relationship, as last summer the Spanish outfit allowed left back Aly Cissokho to complete a loan move to the Reds.
