Liverpool have 'registered interest' in Italian striker Antonio Cassano, according to reports in The Metro.
The AC Milan forward was linked with a move to England last summer, and is back on the Barclays Premier League radar after failing to be guaranteed first team football at the San Siro.
Fresh reports in Italy claim that Liverpool are now considering a move for the 28-year-old, dubbed 'the jewel of Bari' for his hometown roots to the Stadio San Nicola outfit.
Kenny Dalglish is known to be in the market for a striker, and has already spent big at Anfield when bringing Jordan Henderson to the club for a reported £16 million.
Milan assistant boss Mauro Tassotti has urged the player to stick with the Serie 'A' outfit though, and avoid advances from Liverpool and other suitors across Europe.
"I would suggest to Antonio that he stays here with us," Tassotti told Milan Channel.
"He knows what we all think of him here – we class him as a great champion. The amount of games he plays next season depends on him."
A left back and winger are also thought to be on the agenda for the Reds, with Dalglish working alongside Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli in trying to bring targets to the club this summer.
Renowned for his fiery temperament, Cassano joined AC in December after a major falling out at Sampdoria, and it's sure to be an issue that the Liverpool manager is aware of should he look to bring the former Real Madrid forward to the club.
