Liverpool have reportedly made a surprise bid for Juventus star David Trezeguet.

The French veteran has been linked with a move away from Italy this summer, and the Reds have emerged as shock potential frontrunners in a long line of suitors.

Roy Hodgson is understood to be keen to add another striker to his squad before the transfer window closes next week and - although he is heading into his twilight years - Trezeguet could provide the Liverpool boss with some added firepower.

Trezeguet’s agent Antonio Caliendo confirmed that the Merseysiders had shown an interest in the 32-year-old marksman.

"An interest of Liverpool? There are requests, not just of Liverpool," he told

"In Spain there is the interest of Real Zaragoza and Hercules. We are considering [offers], today is a day of reflection, we will know more tomorrow."

The former AS Monaco hotshot transferred to Juve in 2000, and has since become the Italian giants' highest ever overseas goalscorer - and is fourth on the all-time list - with 170 strikes.

A World Cup and European Championships winner with France, Trezeguet was included in Pele's list of the 125 greatest living footballers.
