Galatasaray are reportedly considering a January bid for Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt.

According to Metro, the Turkish giants are willing to part with £10 million in order to land Kuyt and, in turn, boost the 31-year-old's chances of playing at Euro 2012.

The Holland international is no longer a guaranteed starter at Anfield, and has started 11 of Liverpool's 20 league fixtures this season.

The summer acquisitions of Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing having limited Kuyt's opportunities in midfield, while Luis Suarez is Kenny Dalglish's preferred option up-front.

Kuyt, however, is still regarded as an integral part of Dalglish's squad, and could play an important role in the extended absence of Suarez.

The Uruguayan striker faces a further seven-matches on the sidelines following serving the first game of his suspension by missing Tuesday's loss to Manchester City.

Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and James Milner grabbed a goal each as City triumphed 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium.
