Süper Lig giants target £8m Reds forward

Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt is being linked with a move to Galatasaray in the January transfer window.

The Dutch international, who moved to Anfield from Feyenoord in 2006, is no longer a guaranteed starter on Merseyside following the rise to prominence of Craig Bellamy and Stewart Downing on the flanks, where Kuyt has predominantly been used in recent seasons.

With 18 months left on his contract, The Daily Mail claims Liverpool may be willing to consider cashing-in on the 31-year-old, with the Turkish Süper Lig outfit preparing an £8 million offer to tempt the Reds.

Kuyt began his career with FC Utrecht in 1998, and after five-years at the Stadion Galgenwaard joined Eredivisie rivals De Stadionclub in a £1 million move.

Liverpool came calling in 2006, with Rafael Benitez snaring the 84-cap Dutch international ahead of other English clubs, including Newcastle United.

One of the most consistent performers for the club during his five-year spell thus far, Kuyt has struggled to find his best form for Kenny Dalglish this season, although has featured 21 times.

His exit would be a shock in the January window, although Fatih Terim would likely make the Liverpool player a handsome offer to move to the Türk Telekom Arena.
