Steve Mclaren and Wolfsburg have declared their interest in Liverpool flop Milan Jovanovic and are tabling a bid in the region of £6million.

Since the departure of Edin Dzeko to Manchester City last week, the former England manager is looking to fill the void left by the clubs top goalscorer, and is prepared to use some of the £27million transfer kitty on the 6ft 4in Serbian international.

Jovanovic has so far failed to impress at Anfield since joining on a free transfer in the summer, and manager Kenny Dalglish is said to welcome the move as he looks to relieve the Liverpool wage bill with a view to bringing in additional signings of his own.


The 29-year-old midfielder-come-striker, who was signed by Rafael Benitez before he was sacked, has started only two Barclays Premier League games for Liverpool this season.

Jovanovic had vowed to stay on Merseyside and fight for his place under King Kenny’s regime, but his agent has now confirmed that the player may look to revive his career elsewhere.

There are a number of other clubs interested in attaining the services of the former Standard Liege star, including Serie A sides Fiorentina and Genoa.
