Liverpool striker Kristian Nemeth is the subject of a £1 million bid from Serie 'A' side Lecce.

The Hungarian hitman is yet to receive a first team opportunity at a competitive level for the Reds, with Rafa Benitez farming the youngster out to a couple of clubs in a bid to gain first team experience during his time as manager.

Despite a lack of striking options at Anfield last season, Nemeth spent the 2009/10 season at AEK Athens, impressing in the Greek Super League when chances arose.

Nemeth had previously spent a month on loan at Blackpool during the previous season, but mainly built his reputation on the back of some fine performances in the Liverpool youth and reserve sides.

The former MTK forward has made his international debut for Hungary also, appearing against Germany in May this year after working his way through every age group for his nation.

Constant calls from the Kop faithful to give Nemeth a chance at Anfield fell on deaf ears in the Benitez era, and new manager Roy Hodgson will have to make a quick pre-season assessment on his young forward.

Lecce, who won promotion from Serie 'B' last season, are keen to add Nemeth and see the player as someone who could help secure top flight football at the club for years to come.

Described as 'one of the most exciting prospects on Liverpool's books' on the club's official website, Nemeth's own feelings on the bid are currently unknown.
