Wolfsburg star linked with Anfield move.
Liverpool are reportedly considering bidding for Werder Bremen playmaker Diego who this list week was fined a massive €500,000 (£443,000) for storming out of the club’s hotel when learning he was not to start the club’s final game of last season. The Brazilian international is said to be keen on leaving the Bundesliga side whom he joined last summer.
The unsettled playmaker is said to be on Anfield director of football Damien Comolli’s transfer wish-list and the 26 year old may be offloaded by Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath. The former Juventus man also was fined earlier in the season for taking a penalty, which he subsequently missed, which he was not designated to take.
Diego’s overall form over the last campaign was mixed but the pint sized midfielder did weigh in with crucial performances that eventually help steer Wolfsburg away from relegation in what was a very poor season for the club overall. The Volkswagen backed side had won the title back in 2008/09 but finished last season in 15th spot in the Bundesliga, during which time Steve McClaren was fired and star striker Edin Dzeko was sold to Man City.
Liverpool are keen to bring in more creative talent and are said to be closing in on Blackpool talisman Charlie Adam and having already signed Sunderland youngster Jordan Henderson, Kenny Dalglish is expected to bring in further signings to help push his side back into the top four next term.
Diego had been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool during Rafa Benitez’s spell at the club and the much traveled midfielder may be looking for a fresh start after stuttering seasons with Juventus and Wolfsburg.
