Anfield boss wants Nou Camp player.
Barcelona forward Jeffren Suarez admits he is proud to be linked with Liverpool and is interested in a move to Anfield.
The 23-year-old has only one-year left on his contract and has been unable to establish himself in the La Liga champions starting XI.
He played only eight games last season, scoring one goal and creating as many assists.
The Venezuelan-born Spain U21 international is along way down the pecking order with Lionel Messi, David Villa, Pedro and Bojan all ahead of him.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is an admirer and hopes to take advantage of Jeffren’s desire to play first-team football and hopes a bid of around £5million will be enough to persuade Barca to sell..
The player is intrigued by the possibility of a move to Merseyside but admits he is focused on the upcoming Euro U21 Championships in Denmark.
“I do not think about that [transfer talk] now,” Jeffren said. “I’m here and I am thinking about what we’re doing [with Spain].
“The truth is that when teams like Liverpool are mentioned I am proud of their interest and we’ll see what it does to me. ”
