Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt could be on his way out of Anfield this summer after Hamburg manager Thorsten Fink registered his interest in signing the Dutchman.
Kuyt has spent six years on Merseyside, having joined Liverpool from Feyenoord in 2006. However, speculation has mounted linking the 31-year-old with a move to the Bundesliga, with Hamburg thought to be the most interested.
Kuyt has one year remaining on his current contract and Liverpool could look to cash in on the player this season rather than risk losing on a free transfer.
ESPN reports that coach Fink said: "He has class and he is also a fighter. There is nothing more that needs to be said about the quality of this player. Whether this is something we feel we want to commit to, we will see."
Fink's interest follows comments made by Hamburg's technical director, Frank Arnesen. The former Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea director of football told the German newspaper Bild that Kuyt was a player who would add something to the Bundesliga side.
The Dutchman, who has one League Cup winners' medal to his name with Liverpool, turns 32 in July. Hamburg have endured a disappointing season in the Bundesliga this year and currently sit 14th in the table.
