Liverpool are being linked with a summer move for Andrea Pirlo.
The Italian international midfielder is set to run-down his contract with AC Milan after a decade at the San Siro, with Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish thought to be interested in the player.
Gazzetta dello Sport reported a week ago that Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Inter Milan were interested in the player alongside Liverpool, and Pirlo is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club outside Italy should he wish too now.
The response from Liverpool fans on blog sites has been instantly positive with regards to a move for the 31-year-old, although high wage demands could be a stumbling block in any potential deal.
That said, Anfield owners NESV have already shown that they are willing to back the club financially with regards to transfers after spending over £55 million on strikers at Liverpool in the January window.
Pirlo would provide experience as well as his world-renowned talents and technique, although it;s unknown if the former Brescia starlet is willing to move away from Serie 'A' at this stage of his career. He joined Milan back in 1991 for €18 million.
A World Cup winner in 2006 and a player with 72 senior caps to his name, Pirlo has proven himself at every level and has numerous individual and team honours to prove his value.
A lack of Champions League football could also prove to be an issue in bringing the player to Liverpool, although Dalglish could hope to lure the player to the club with a view to him rejuvenating their top four ambitions.
