Liverpool midfield target Diego has revealed a move to England is his 'dream'.

The Brazilian international has fallen out of favour at Wolfsburg, leading to speculation that the 26-year-old is set to leave the Bundesliga this summer.

"I think it’s best if the club and myself go in different directions. I hope the move can work out well for everyone," the former Juventus star told The South American Football Show.

Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli is cited as a big admirer of the former Porto playmaker, but when questioned specifically on the interest of the Reds, Diego was more general when discussing his desire to play in England.

"I prefer not to mention the names of clubs out of respect for the managers and the owners but it’s true that there is contact with some clubs in England," Diego continued.

"Of course I will give these offers special attention because it’s my dream to play in the Premier League. At this moment England is where I want to play.

"We are just starting to have conversations with clubs so it’s too early to say where I will be going, but it would be perfect if I can play in the Premier League."

Diego revealed that he doesn't know what kind of offer would need to be made by Liverpool to take him away from the Volkswagen Arena, but is confident a deal can be struck between Wolfsburg and whichever team chases his signature.


"I have no idea in this moment of the exact fee but I think because Wolfsburg and myself both want the same solution. When everybody wants the same outcome it makes things easier," the player concluded.

Kenny Dalglish has been linked with a handful of midfielders this month, with Eden Hazard, Charlie Adam and Moussa Sissoko all placed on the Liverpool radar.

A left back, winger, attacking midfielder and striker are all thought to be on the agenda of the Anfield outfit, with the Scottish boss looking to invest further on Merseyside following the arrival of Jordan Henderson at Liverpool a fortnight ago for a reported £20 million.

With experience at the highest level both domestically and internationally, Diego would appear to be a fine potential additional for Liverpool, although his arrival could lead to the much speculated exit of Raul Meireles in the transfer window.
