Real Betis are interested in Liverpool midfielder Alou Diarra.Real Betis are interested in Liverpool midfielder Alou Diarra.
The big Frenchman has not had a look-in at Anfield since joining from Bayern Munich, and has never appeared for The Reds.
Gerard Houllier farmed him out on loan immediately and new boss Rafa Benitez also decided a loan move would be best for now and he is back at French side Lens.
Betis boss Lorenzo Serra Ferrer has watched the defensive midfielder in action and is weighing up an offer.
The 23-year-old has made his international debut for France despite not yet making his competitive debut for Liverpool, with Les Bleus boss Raymond Domenech obviously rating the youngster highly.
Ferrer may try to move for Diarra during the January transfer window, should Benitez decide he has no future on Merseyside.
