Liverpool midfielder Oussama Assaidi has emerged as a transfer target for Eredivisie side Feyenoord, reports talkSPORT.
Feyenoord manager Ronald Koeman is looking to add to his Feyenoord squad following their impressive third-place finish last season, and he has identified Assaidi as a potential player to lead their European campaign next season.
Speaking to Dutch newspaper AD, Koeman said: "I hope that this deal comes around soon. Assaidi is a player who can play in different positions- we are just going to have to wait and see whether this is feasible."
Fellow Eredivisie side FC Twente have also been credited with an interest in the Moroccan international, with Brendan Rodgers open to letting Assaidi leave this summer. Because of this, Koeman is hopeful of securing a deal for Assaidi, who already has a host of Eredivisie experience.
Assaidi began his career at Almere City, before making the move to Da Graafschap in 2008. He struggled to make an impression at Graafschap in his first season in the top flight of Dutch football, and quickly moved to Herenveen only a year later.
It was here where Assaidi's career took off. He quickly settled at Herenveen, making 93 appearances, scoring 33 goals in four years at the Abe Lenstra Stadion. And it was this form that alerted the likes of Liverpool, and Brendan Rodgers brought Assaidi to Anfield at the beginning of last season.
But Assaidi had little impact in his first campaign at Liverpool, making only 12 appearances for Rodgers' side last season.
