Liverpool's free transfer move for former Wigan Athletic midfielder Mohamed Diame is back on, according to Sky Sports.

The 24-year-old Senegalese international is one of the top Bosman transfers around this summer, with a number of Premier League clubs reportedly keen to sign him.

His proposed switch to Anfield looked to have broken down following the sacking of former Reds boss Kenny Dalglish, but newly appointed manager Brendan Rodgers is also an admirer of the African ace, and has given the green light for the deal.

Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Aston Villa have all been credited with an interest in Diame, with Paul Lambert - who arrived at Villa Park earlier this week - the biggest reported rival to Liverpool for the player's signature.

Diame arrived in England in a £3million deal in 2009, and has impressed in three successful seasons at the DW Stadium. The box-to-box midfielder's combative displays have earned many admirers.

Big-spending Spanish side Malaga have also been monitoring Diame's situation, and could yet make him a lucrative offer to swap the Premier League for La Liga.
