Liverpool are reportedly considering a surprise move for Tottenham misfit Giovani Dos Santos, according to a report in the Mexican media.
The Reds have just begun a new era after appointing Brendan Rodgers as the successor to Kenny Dalglish on Friday, and the club is expected to have a busy summer recruiting new players as they look to fulfill the wishes of the owners and become a Champions League force again.
Rodgers was keen to take Dos Santos on loan while still in charge at Swansea, and according to ESPN Deportes – the Mexican branch of ESPN – the Northern Irishman remains interested in signing the Mexico forward now that he has taken over the Anfield hotseat.

For some reason Harry Redknapp has never really given Giovani dos Santos a fair crack of the whip. Perhaps the fact that the Mexican international attacker was already at the club when he arrived has something to do with the White Hart Lane boss’s reticence to give the 23 year a old a chance to prove himself.
A move to Liverpool would surely tempt the former Barcelona man, and no doubt the man who brought him to the Premier League, former Anfield director of football Damien Comolli, can help him make up his mind over a possible move to Merseyside.
Brendan Rodgers clearly rates Giovani dos Santos, hence his interest in bringing the Tottenham man to the Liberty Stadium, and Liverpool could well do with some more craft and guile to help provide ammunition for the club’s front-line.
Giovani dos Santos was considered one of the hottest young prospects in world football when he was breaking through at the Nou Camp, the Monterrey born attacker scored a hat-trick in his last Barcelona appearance, but his career has stagnated at Tottenham though he has gone from strength to strength with the Mexican national team having now won 56 caps, during which time he has helped his nation to two Gold Cup triumphs.
Rodgers may be considering using the Tottenham youngster to fill the problem area on the right flank, the spot that last season was unsuccessfully filled by Dirk Kuyt and Jordan Henderson.
