Michel Vorm surprised by alleged Liverpool interest

Michel Vorm admits he was surprised to hear about alleged transfer interest from Liverpool after the Swansea City goalkeeper was linked with a £7 million move to Merseyside last weekend.

Sport Witness reports how the Holland international was speaking to the media after linking up with the Dutch squad at their World Cup training camp, and distanced himself from speculation passing the stories off as nothing more than rumours.

"It appeared last week in the British media," he was quoted saying by De Telegraaf. "For me it was a surprise I must be honest. I personally haven't heard anything."

Vorm was brought to the Premier League for a bargain £1.5 million fee by Brendan Rodgers three years ago, and the Northern Irishman is now keen to be reunited with the 30-year-old at Anfield after leaving the Liberty Stadium in 2012.

The Sunday People suggested that Liverpool would be willing to pay almost five times what Swansea outlaid in 2011, for a goalkeeper that would arrive as back-up to first-choice stopper Simon Mignolet.

Mignolet was only recruited by the Reds in a £9 million deal last summer, but Rodgers wants to provide stronger competition for his current custodian.

However, Liverpool might be forced to bide their time if they are genuinely interested in signing Vorm, with Holland boss Louis van Gaal likely to not want any of his players distracted by agents and clubs in the build-up to the World Cup in Brazil next month.
