Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt is wanted by his former club Feyenoord this summer, but they only want to pay £1million for him.

 

A report from talkSPORT suggests that the Dutchman has a clause in his contract that stipulates he can leave Anfield for a European side in the summer for a reduced fee.

 

Kenny Dalglish has not been using Kuyt quite as frequently this season, with many seeing this as the end of his time with the Reds.

 

The 31-year-old joined Liverpool in 2006 for a fee of around £11million pounds with the reputation of being a prolific goalscorer, but he could not repeat his Eredivisie exploits in the Premier League.

 

Though he did become a favourite on the Kop for his tireless running and unquestionable commitment to the cause.

 

Under Dalglish, Kuyt has lost his status as automatic starter and the report suggests his high wages and waning influence may cause the Liverpool boss to offload him in a predicted summer of overhaul.

 

Kuyt reportedly earns somewhere in the region of £3.5million pounds a year – possibly more than the Anfield club want to pay for a player whose importance and influence has waned in a poor Premier League season.
