Liverpool is closing in on signing Atletico Madrid striker Maxi Rodriguez in the January transfer window.
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez said Friday that the deal is "more or less agreed" for the Argentina international. Benitez says that "now it's for Atletico and the player to talk and see what happens."
