Liverpool have been alerted to the availability of Zoltan Gera after his desire to move to Anfield was revealed by his agent. reports that Roy Hodgson is monitoring the situation of his former forward, who is eyeing the exit door at Fulham.

The Hungary ace was one of the star performers for the Cottagers as Hodgson guided them to the Europa League final last term, and the Reds boss is believed to be keen to link-up again with the 31-year-old.

And Gera's representative believes that his client could easily slot into the plans of his former manager.

"At the moment I don't want to comment on the news, but there is always a chance for a club change when a player has enjoyed such a great season, like Gera did," Vladan Filipovic told

"Mr Hodgson liked him very much at Fulham and that belief could be seen in Gera's performances, he played some great football.

"I think his favoured position is behind the striker and there could be a place for him in the Liverpool starting line-up.

"They have signed Joe Cole, and there are several world-class players in the Liverpool squad, but they don't have a player in Gera's position who is as hard-working as him or as dangerous in front of goal.

"He showed with his hat-trick against Werder Bremen that his form is as good as it was last season."

Gera made the switch to England from Hungary in 2004 when he joined West Brom before transferring to Fulham four years later.
