World Cup ace 'not burdened' by Liverpool interest

Published Add your comment

Slovenia star Valter Birsa has moved to cool talk linking him with Liverpool.

The Auxerre playmaker has reportedly been on Liverpool's radar in recent weeks, but the 24-year-old explained he will not believe the speculation until the Anfield club make a concrete offer.

"Much has been written about this [Liverpool link], but I'm not being burdened by it," he told Sky Sports.

"I have my agents and representatives who deal with all this for me.

"If at the end of the day something happens I guess that everything will go much quicker than these rumours, which have been dragging in the papers for a while now."

Birsa is an attack-minded midfielder with an eye for goal - which he demonstrated on a global stage by scoring for Slovenia against the USA during the World Cup.

The ex-Sochaux ace would reportedly be available to Liverpool for around £2 million in January as Roy Hodgson looks to add more potency to his Anfield strike force.

The Liverpool boss recently admitted that the club rely too heavily on Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard to score goals and he has identified Liverpool's attacking department as the one in need of the most reinforcement.

Aston Villa winger Ashley Young and Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente are just two in a long list of names to be linked with Liverpool prior to what is sure to be a busy January at Anfield
