San Siro side reignite interest in Anfield man.
Inter Milan are lining up a January bid for unsettled Liverpool star Dirk Kuyt as San Siro boss Claudio Ranieri looks to add more strength in depth to the Serie A side’s attack.
The 31 year old Dutchman has been a hugely important player at Anfield during his five years on Merseyside and finished last term as top scorer but thus far this season has found himself in and out of the starting eleven due to the arrival of a number of midfield options brought in by Kenny Dalglish over the summer.
Kuyt has become well known for his knack of scoring crucial goals and his tireless running have made the former Feyenoord man a cult hero at the club but at his age the Dutch international will not want to be left on the bench and may well be tempted by a new challenge in Serie A.
Ranieri has taken the reins as Nerazzurri boss following the sacking of Gian Piero Gasperini after barely a month in charge and the former Chelsea and Roma boss is said to be keen to bring in Kuyt after seeing Inter Milan struggle to find a cutting edge up front.
Some Italian sources state that Inter Milan would be willing to pay up to €15m (£13m) for the Liverpool man and it may be an offer Kenny Dalglish considers accepting given that he has the likes of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Steven Gerrard who could play out on the right side of midfield and with Craig Bellamy coming in the need for further striking options is lessened somewhat.
Kuyt has amassed 67 goals from 247 appearances for Liverpool since Rafa Benitez signed the forward in the summer of 2006.
