Atletico Madrid winger Simao Sabrosa has admitted his interest in playing in the Premier League amid reports Liverpool are planning an £8million bid.
The Portugal international has one year left on his contract in Spain and has been linked with a move to Anfield for many years.
Rafa Benitez is understood to be a fan and is in the market for a left winger, while Simao did his reputation no harm when starring in Atletico's Europa League semi-final victory over the Reds.
Liverpool could therefore make a move this summer and the 30-year-old has indicated that he is attracted by the prospect of switching to England.
Simao is quoted as saying in the Daily Star: "Nobody has spoken with me in the last days about this subject.
"I only say that some people in Madrid have suggested that Atletico are preparing my sale, but I don't know too much.
"I have always been interested in playing in the Premier League, but my head is in the World Cup and I have a deal with Atletico."
