Outcast defender set to make surprise Anfield return this month.
Real Madrid full-back Alvaro Arbeloa is set to press ahead with a return to former club Liverpool this month after finding himself out of favour at the Santiago Bernabeu and will reject Chelsea and Arsenal to do so, according to the Daily Express.
The former Spain international is reportedly frustrated at his lack of game time this season, having started just five La Liga matches.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti has preferred to stick with the 23-year-old Dani Carvajal so far this season, who has enhanced his reputation with a series of impressive performances.
And according to reports in La Liga, the 31-year-old is ready to jump ship at the earliest opportunity.
Both Chelsea and Arsenal had been keen on making their own moves for him over the summer, but the player will opt to return to his former stomping ground as they step up their search to find a replacement for Glen Johnson.
