Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is a known fan of the France international and was impressed by the scouting reports that were brought back to him last season when he had his backroom staff watch him play for Kazan.
And as rumours grow claiming that the Anfield outfit are set to make their move for the player, speculation has intensified now that M’Vila has admitted that he is eager to make the move over to England.
“I think many players dream of playing in the Premier League – Yann is no different,” said Werner Baader.
“I will not deny there is interest from many European clubs, including English teams.
“We will see what happens.”
M’Vila was perviously a target for Premier League rivals Arsenal, but he is believed to favour a move to Liverpool over anywhere else after admitting that he was a Reds fan as a boy and was even spotted chatting to fans and club officials at the Merseyside derby earlier on in the season.
