Trabzonspor are reportedly attempting to prise Milan Jovanovic away from Liverpool.

The Serbian striker has been restricted to just four Premier League starts for the Reds and has failed to make an impact on Merseyside since joining the club on a free transfer - and now, according to The Sun, Trabzonspor are allegedly willing to offer him an escape route.

Jovanovic had initially agreed to join Liverpool while Rafa Benitez was in charge at Anfield but joined up with the club after the Spaniard had been replaced by Roy Hodgson.

He has struggled to demonstrate to the Liverpool boss that he is worthy of a place in the starting line-up but - despite interest in his signature from abroad - the 29-year-old maintains he will fight for his place at Anfield.

"Since I moved to England I've done everything regarding my job the way the coach wants from me," he said.

"I was really focused on not making many tactical mistakes. I've not done things my way. I didn't do things my way, I didn't take risks with my moves and actions.

"I'm just thinking about Liverpool. I'll stay here because I'm no quitter or a person who doesn't fight.

"I know, that Anderlecht rate me very highly and I'm proud about that.

"Anderlecht are the biggest club in Belgium and I respect them, but I have a contract with Liverpool and I'll stay."

Hodgson is thought to be keen to offload Jovanovic and replace him with a more potent partner for Liverpool hero Fernando Torres.

Carlton Cole and Johan Elmander have both been linked with Liverpool as Hodgson steps up his pursuit of a new striker.
