Former Liverpool starlet in line for Espanyol move

Dani Pacheco

Dani Pacheco looks set to move from Huesca on a free transfer.

Former Liverpool forward Daniel Pacheco is being linked with a move to Espanyol, according to TalkSport.

The Spaniard was regarded as a promising, attacking player during his time at Anfield but unfortunately for him he never made the grade, despite appearing as a confident player who had a good understanding of the game.

But he struggled to get enough game time at Anfield and had several loan spells back in Spain but failed to make a significant impact on the top division.

Now, it looks as though Espanyol will offer him a chance to prove himself back in the top flight of the Spanish league with the club from Barcelona set to complete a free transfer for the 23-year-old.

He was handed his first-team debut in 2009 in Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to Fiorentina in the Champions League at Anfield, where he came on as a substitute in the final quarter of an hour, and was the first of seven appearances that season.

Having made a few more appearances under Roy Hodgson at Anfield in the early stages of the following season before being loaned out to Norwich City.

In the 2011/12 season he made 12 appearances at Rayo Vallecano but returned to Anfield under Brendan Rodgers – and appeared in a League Cup tie against West Bromwich Albion as well as two Europa League appearances, before he was moved on to SD Huesca midway through that season where he has been since.
