Pacheco, 19, joined Liverpool from Barcelona in 2007 and is considered one of the most promising players at the club, and it appears Roy Hodgson is willing to allow him to head out on loan to gain further first-team experience.

Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay has now said he is looking to take the player to Estadio Anoeta, although with several clubs reported to be interested he knows it may prove difficult.

"Certainly Real Socieded are interested in Pacheco," he told El Mundo Deportivo. "He is a player we have followed, but we do not know if we can realise this operation."
