Villarreal striker Luciano Vietto could sign for Liverpool in the summer, according to the Argentine's agent.

Vietto, 21, has been one of La Liga's breakout stars this season, having struck 11 league goals and a further seven in the Europa League just seven months on from his arrival in Spain.

His rapid emergence has swiftly seen him linked with Europe's biggest clubs with Real Madrid already reportedly looking to add him to their attacking options.

But according to the striker's agent Jorge Cysterpiller, Liverpool are also keen admirers of his client with a move to Merseyside a possibility at the end of the season.

"We know that a lot of big clubs are watching Luciano Vietto," Cysterpiller is quoted as saying by Spanish daily AS.

"There is a lot of competition for him. He could sign for Liverpool, we know that he is admired by the Reds, as well as Real Madrid and two Bundesliga clubs.

"I think he could leave Villarreal in the summer."

Vietto featured as an unused substitute against Real Madrid as Villarreal rescued a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu on Sunday (1 March), with manager Marcelino Garcia Toral opting to rest the Argentine youngster ahead of Wednesday's Copa de Rey clash with Barcelona.

The forward was quoted discussing his options amid growing speculation over his future over the weekend, but insisted he would only move for an offer that satisfied both himself and Villarreal.

"If any big clubs come along with a genuine offer, we will see what emerges," Vietto reportedly told AS.

"But it would have to be an offer that would suit everyone concerned, then we could consider what to do.

"It would have to be a good proposal for me and for the club."
