Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt is considering his future at Anfield, with Roma a potential destination, according to his agent.

The 31-year-old has spent six years on Merseyside, but only claimed his first trophy during February's Carling Cup final.

Reports had suggested Kuyt was due to be part of a mass exodus from Liverpool after a disastrous domestic campaign, which will see the club miss out on Champions League qualification, and the player's agent has talked up the possibility of a departure.

"Kuyt is considering his future. He still has a contract with Liverpool, expires in 2014. Roma could be an option for Dirk," said the agent.

"It's a prestigious club that is fighting for important objectives. For now I can say that Roma is part of the list of clubs that Kuyt would take seriously.

"Feyenoord know that Dirk will join them once he returns to Netherlands. But when? It’s impossible to answer that question," he added.

After the recent additions of Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson, Kuyt's opportunities have been limited for Liverpool this season, with his goal tally also affected, having scored just five goals this season, including in the showcase final at Wembley.

However, Kuyt's place in the pecking order at Liverpool means he may well be allowed to move on, with the likes of Henderson and Carroll brought in as long-term options.

Kuyt will have the opportunity to put himself in the shop window this summer during the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine.
