Maxi in Liverpool for medical

The 29-year-old is set to sign an 18-month contract in a £1.5million move from Spanish side Atletico Madrid.

Rodriguez will watch his new team-mates in action in the FA Cup clash with Reading on Wednesday night at Anfield.

Rodriguez, who’s contract was set to expire at the end of the season, still has to agree his pay-off from Atletico Madrid.
