Malaga intend to tempt Liverpool with a loan offer for Ryan Babel, according to Spanish daily AS.
Babel, 23, has struggled to make an impression at Anfield since he joined in 2007 and has made just two substitute appearances in the Premier League this season. He had been expected to be jettisoned last summer but an upturn in form in the final months of the previous campaign secured his squad place.
Malaga have made a promising start in the Primera Division and intend to bolster their playing staff in the New Year. A conclusion for the bid for Babel will have to wait until Liverpool's ownership issues are cleared up, however.
