Liverpool an 'attractive' proposition for Barcelona midfielder


Barcelona midfielder Seydou Keita is flattered by reported interest from Liverpool and has not ruled out a potential transfer to the Barclays Premier League.

Keita has only started five of Barca's 11 fixtures in La Liga this season and has frequently been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp.

Liverpool are said to be monitoring the situation of the 31-year-old and reports earlier this week suggested Kenny Dalglish is considering bringing Keita to Anfield.

Keita, though, says he has no intention of considering his future until the summer - although a move to England would be an interesting proposition.

"Liverpool is a great club, it is fantastic to hear that they are interested in me, but you know how I feel about Barcelona," the Mali international told

"However we are in football and nothing is an absolute, so let's wait until the end of the season.

"I want to play more games than last season, playing regularly in a winning team is very good for the player, but the Premier League is very attractive and exciting for any player.

"My contract runs untill 2014, at the end of the season we will see."
