Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt says he is wanted by teams in several countries after ruling out a return to former club Feyenoord this summer.
Kuyt has made over 280 appearances for Liverpool since moving from Feyenoord six years ago, but he started just 22 Premier League games this season.
He has just a year to run on his contract at Anfield and has been tipped to leave after already revealing Hamburg have shown an interest.
However, Kuyt also says clubs in Spain and Italy are on his trail as he considers his future during Liverpool's ongoing search for a new manager.
"There are many clubs who are interested," he told NUsport in Holland. "Not only from England, also from Germany, Spain and Italy."
The 31-year-old, who will be part of the Netherlands' Euro 2012 challenge this summer, has confirmed he will not be heading back to Feyenoord following talks with his old club.
"I have had several conversations with Feyenoord but we were unable to agree," he added.
"I did not want on my conscience that Feyenoord would have financial problems because of my salary.
"There were too many doubts on both sides. I've thought about it, but it is not the time to return. "
