Fiorentina striker welcomes Liverpool link

Fiorentina forward Mounir El Hamdaoui has admitted he is flattered by the reported interest from Liverpool.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to add more firepower up front despite signing Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, and he was recently linked with a move for the Moroccan striker.

The 28-year-old says he would love to play at Anfield, even if he is not placing too much importance on the transfer talk.

“Being linked with Liverpool is flattering but I really think it is paper talk so far,” he told Sky Sports.

“Liverpool are a great club and to play there in a legendary stadium like Anfield would be fantastic and a dream. But I am at Fiorentina and I’m happy.”

El Hamdaoui joined Viola in a cut-price deal from Ajax last summer, and was tipped to establish an attacking partnership with star forward Stevan Jovetic.

However, he has failed to earn a regular starting berth at Artemio Franchi and only started 2 Serie A fixtures this season.

With Luca Toni and Adem Ljajic both in front of him in the pecking order, the Moroccan would probably jump at the chance to leave Florence at the end of the current campaign.
