Spartak Moscow midfielder Aiden McGeady has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A giants Juventus in the summer.
But recent developments suggest that Liverpool are also interested in bringing the 24-year-old Republic of Ireland international to Anfield reports caughtoffside.com.
Reds manager Kenny Dalglish is looking to add a wing addition to his ranks when the transfer window reopens in June and looks set to go back to Liverpool owners NESV to ask for the £20million it will take to bring the player to Merseyside.
The former Celtic star has impressed since his £9.5million move to the Luzhniki stadium in August, so much so that Spartak’s league rivals Zenit St Petersburg were also rumoured to be preparing an offer for the in-demand winger.
McGeady enjoyed six successful years at Parkhead before making the switch to Moscow – a brave decision for a young player moving into the relative unknown.
But sources close to the player suggest McGeady would be ‘very interested’ in a move to the Barclays Premier League with Liverpool, particularly given the obvious links between the current Anfield boss and the Celtic side he represented so effectively.
As Liverpool Director of Football Strategy Damien Comolli continues his search for an out-and-out wide man to help provide ammunition for the newly acquainted Reds strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll.
McGeady could be the ideal addition to the squad providing Moscow will sanction a bid and allow the player to complete a move to Anfield.
