Callejon would well be the next Bernabeu departure.
Real Madrid forward Jose Callejon has emerged as a transfer target for Liverpool with Serie A duo Fiorentina and Napoli also in the hunt, according to Spanish daily Marca.
Callejon may find his chances at the Santiago Bernabeu very limited during new manager Carlo Ancelotti’s first season in charge, due to the amount of talent in the winger’s position at the Italian’s disposal.
As well as superstar Cristiano Ronaldo often operating out wide, Madrid also have Angel Di Maria and new signing Isco to choose from, as well as talented youngsters like Jese waiting on the sidelines.
Along with a potential transfer of Tottenham Hotspur maestro Gareth Bale and the Spaniard could struggle to get in the Los Blancos first team.
Callejon was a product of the Madrid youth system, although spent three years at Espanyol before the 2012 La Liga champions decided to resign their winger for £4.4m in 2011.
Last season the 26-year-old enjoyed his fair share of playing opportunities at the club, featuring in 30 league matches as well as 11 more appearances in other competitions.
The forward is generally deployed from the bench however and with the talent at Madrid’s disposal, may find himself more utilised if the former Spain under-21 international made the move to Anfield.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has already sanctioned a number of raids on the Spanish top tier this summer, having secured the signatures of Sevilla winger Luis Alberto and striker Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo.
Therefore a move to the Premier League wouldn’t be quite so daunting for Callejon as he would be arriving with two of his countrymen at the Reds, as well as fellow Spaniards Jose Reina, Luis Enrique and Suso already plying their trade at the club.
Liverpool fans watch Callejon’s instinct for goal with this fine finish.
