Liverpool midfielder target Diego has revealed his admiration for the Reds.
The 26-year-old Wolfsburg midfielder has been watched by Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli, according to tribalfootball, and the former Juventus star is flattered to be on the Merseysiders' radar.
"I am honored that such a club has set their eyes on me," said Diego.
"They are one of the most prestigious teams in the world. Playing for them would be an honour."
Whilst it's unconfirmed that Comolli specifically had his eye on the player, Diego's admission that an Anfield move would suit makes him a potential target for Kenny Dalglish's men.
Liverpool have been linked with a number of attacking midfielders in recent weeks, with the former Werder Bremen star joining Jeremy Menez, Ashley Young and Christian Eriksen on the speculative wishlist.
The Liverpool boss is thought to have money to spend following the arrival of NESV at the end of the summer, with the American owners spending over £55 million on transfers in January.
A left back and winger is thought to be the priority for the Liverpool legend, although Dalglish has hinted at changes in a number of positions and Diego has emerged as a transfer option after professing his love for the club.
