Fiorentina striker Mounir El Hamdaoui admits he’s flattered to be linked with a move to Liverpool.
The former Ajax star only moved to the Stadio Artemio Franchi in the summer, but speculation in Morocco suggests the player could be on the move once again at the end of the season.
And, the link to Anfield is one that delights the player, with El Hamdaoui happy to admit that playing for the Reds would be a dream.
"Being linked with Liverpool is flattering but I really think it is paper talk so far,” he told Sky Sports.
“Liverpool are a great club and to play there in a legendary stadium like Anfield would be fantastic and a dream. But I am at Fiorentina and I'm happy."
Brendan Rodgers isn’t flush with attacking options on Merseyside, with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge the only central options following the latter’s arrival during the January transfer window.
Andy Carroll may also be available if West Ham reject the option to sign the England forward permanently, although the former Newcastle-man appears to be out-of-favour with Rodgers after his exit for east London.
28-year-old El Hamdaoui would add experience to the Liverpool attack, having previously played in three different countries, although his 18-month spell at Tottenham Hotspur between January 2005 and June 2006 was anything but a success.
