Liverpool have agreed terms for Brazilian left-back Guilherme Siqueira, according to reports, with Brendan Rodgers closing in on his fifth signing of the summer.
The Reds' interest in Siqueira became known this week as Rodgers looks to build more depth throughout the squad and provide competition for Jose Enrique at the back.
Enrique had a mixed campaign for Liverpool in Rodgers' first season in charge of the club and the manager is keen to add depth to the position this summer.
And Metro is reporting that Rodgers has now had an offer of £5m accepted for Siqueira and is thrashing out the final stage of a deal with the 28 year old to confirm yet another successful pursuit of a player from the cash-strapped La Liga.
Siqueira's performances for Granada since joining the club in 2011 have earned him much praise throughout Spain, with the Brazilian scoring six times in 35 appearances for his club last season.
The Reds have already brought in Luis Alberto from Sevilla and Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo in cut-price deals, and with Siqueira offering experience to the squad he could prove to be tough competition for Spaniard Enrique.
Manchester United and Everton have also monitored the star in the past, but Liverpool are believed to be confident that they will land yet another target as Rodgers aims for Champions League qualification next season.
Siqueira can also offer the club versatility, playing on the wing as well as in the left-back position, assisting Rodgers in his search for replacements for the outgoing Stewart Downing who agreed a deal to move to West Ham this week.
Should the signing be confirmed, it will provide a positive break from the struggles Liverpool are currently facing in trying to keep hold of controversial star Luis Suarez, who yesterday reportedly claimed he never said he wanted to stay at the club and is believed to be continuing to push for a move to Arsenal.
