Having already declared it an ‘honour’ to be linked with a move to Liverpool it appears that Kenny Dalglish is ready to make a substantial offer for the £15m rated Brazilian international. The Wolfsburg playmaker has moved closer to the exit after the Bundesliga side expressed an interest in Tottenham squad player Niko Kranjcar as a possible replacement for the former Juventus man.

Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has been monitoring Diego for some time and will be given the go ahead to make an offer for the 26 year old who had an up and down time last term as Wolfsburg struggled for form and sacked boss Steve McClaren mid way through the season.

The Anfield club has been looking at adding more creativity to help link midfield and attack and Diego could well be the ideal man for the job. The former Santos and Porto man had his best years at Werder Bremen which led to a high profile move to Juventus which became something of a damp squib as the Turin side went through something of a nightmare before finding his way back to Germany last summer.

Liverpool would hope that Diego could help provide the ammunition for strikers Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll and help support Steven Gerrard in his efforts to drive the Merseyside attacks.
