Anfield boss to make move for talented set piece specialist.
Reports out of Spain are claiming that Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is ready to take a chance on Wolfsburg out of favour Brazilian bad boy, Diego.
Diego was loaned out of Wolfsburg in September to Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid after the German Bundesliga club lost patience with the Brazilian Internationals repeated indiscipline and fines of close to £550,000 has meant that Diego has no future at all with Wolfsburg.
Diego is highly talented and providing he can control his indiscipline and play for the team and not himself he would be a huge asset for any team, Atletico Madrid are unlikely to be able to afford the expected fee of £15 Million plus his high wages, Liverpool however can and the reports are that Liverpool have already had scouts watching the 26 year old in Spain.
Diego has had a bad time of it during his second spell in Germany and a move to away from the Volkswagen Arena seems on the cards and the first team football he’s getting at the Vicente Calderon is giving him a good chance to impress prospective suitors and once again Liverpool are said to be in the running to sign the Brazilian international playmaker.
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is said to want to add more creativity to his midfield despite the number of players he has to fill just such a role already at his disposal. The Scot has the likes of Charlie Adam, Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson to push on from the central role and support the strikers although clearly the England Under 21 international is a more balanced player than an out and out attacking option.
Having lost Raul Meireles to Chelsea and loaned out Alberto Aquilani to AC Milan, perhaps there is a need to beef up options and the set piece specialist from Wolfsburg could be a clever acquisition but clearly Diego can be a bit of a headache as both Steve McClaren and Felix Magath have found out.
In pure playing terms though the former Juventus man could be a top notch addition to the club’s squad and the Brazilian may feel a high profile move may help him force his way back into the national team set-up. Clearly it may help that fellow countrymen Lucas Leiva, Doni and Fabio Aurelio are at Anfield presently.
