Spanish striker Daniel Pacheco has joined Atletico Madrid on a season loan – but, bizarrely, they appear to have immediately loaned him to fellow La Liga side Rayo Vallecano.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Atleti will retain the option to recall the 20 year old throughout the season.
Pacheco spent the latter part of last season on loan to Norwich City and has been linked with a temporary move away from Anfield throughout the summer, in order to gain valuable playing experience.
With Pacheco now gone, and David Ngog expected to complete a move to Bolton before the window closes, Liverpool are left with only Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez and Dirk Kuyt as established first-team forwards.
Could Kenny Dalglish be bringing in another forward as back-up? Or promoting youngster Adam Morgan to the first-team?
