Liverpool have identified Real Madrid midfielder Hamit Altintop as a potential summer acquisition, it has been claimed.
The experienced Turkey international has played only five times since moving to the Santiago Bernabeu from Bayern Munich on a free transfer last year, and is seemingly set to leave the club after only one season.
Kenny Dalglish is targeting a number of new recruits during the transfer window in order to transform Liverpool's fortunes next season, and his search has reportedly led him to Altintop.
According to Metro, Liverpool are considering a £2 million bid for the 29-year-old, who has been outlined as a potential replacement for Dirk Kuyt.
Altintop made over 300 appearances in German football prior to his move to Spain, and will provide Dalglish with both experience and versatility in his Liverpool midfield.
Kuyt, meanwhile, has frequently been linked with a move away from Anfield this summer, and is a reported target for Bundesliga club Hamburg.
