Anfield side could pick up talented wide-man on a free transfer.
Liverpool have been offered the chance to sign former Chelsea winger Ricardo Quaresma, according to reports in Spain.
The Portugal international, who was part of his country’s squad at Euro 2012, first came to prominence at Sporting Lisbon and earned a move to Barcelona.
And now his agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho, has offered the tricky winger to Liverpool, as well as to Valencia and Marseille.
This is of course not the first time Liverpool have been linked with apparent interest in Portuguese winger Ricardo Quaresma, more like the 101st, but perhaps now is the time for Brendan Rodgers to consider the possibility of bringing in the 29 year old free agent.
The former Barcelona man could well add some know how to Liverpool’s flanks, where Rodgers has opted to use teenagers Suso and Raheem Sterling frequently. The signing of Daniel Sturridge does of course help in this regard but the England international, who Liverpool signed yesterday, is said to prefer a striking role and arguably is more urgently needed in that position.
Having plied his trade with a number of Europe’s ‘Elite’ Quaresma is still to truly deliver on his obvious potential and a move to the Premier League could well be the winger’s final chance to prove himself on a higher stage.
After bursting onto the scene at Sporting Lisbon Quaresma left for Barcelona but lasted just one season at the Nou Camp before moving to FC Porto where he collected three domestic title in four seasons before moving to Inter Milan where he once again failed to make the grade, a loan spell at Chelsea then followed before his career at the San Siro petered out.
A move to Turkish side Besiktas failed to spark life into the Portuguese international and after a series of unsavoury incidents, including run-ins with players and management, his contract was canceled, hence his current free agent status.
