Hamburg close to capturing signature of Liverpool star

Published

on

German club Hamburg have confirmed their interest in Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt, reports suggest.

Kuyt, who has felt increasingly marginalised at Anfield, has only started 25 games in all competitions for Liverpool this season, having been a constant feature in the side.

Former manager Kenny Dalglish expressed his desire to keep the Dutchman, but handed the forward very little opportunities in the starting team, favouring Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson.

Hamburg have recognised the opportunity for a potential deal, and it is rumoured that an enquiry has been made to the club. It is unsure whether or not the club will reject this enquiry, given Kuyt’s insistence he intends to remain at the club this summer to show his worth.

Yet Kuyt, 31, has also suggested that he deserves to be playing more regularly, and hinted that, if Liverpool cannot deliver this, he may be forced into plying his trade elsewhere. Many clubs, including former club Feyenoord, have been linked with signing the Dutchman but reports claim that a move abroad would be his preferred choice, increasing Hamburg’s chances.

The forward has recently also claimed that he wants to play in the Champions League, which would reduce the chances of him making a move to Hamburg, after the German club slumped to 15th in the Bundesliga last season and last competed on Europe’s top stage in 2006.

It is not yet known whether Kuyt will delay any decision on his future until the new Liverpool manager has been announced.

The forward is also unlikely to make any form of decision before the Netherlands’ Euro 2012 campaign.
