Aaron Cresswell’s reason for being at Anfield on Sunday was strictly business as he arrived with West Ham United in search of Premier League points.

However, the Hammers left-back could not stop himself touching the iconic This is Anfield sign before kick-off.

The moment, which was captured by Sky Sports cameras, sparked transfer talk, with Metro referencing a summer rumour which linked the 26-year-old with interest from the Reds.

Merseyside-born Cresswell makes no secret of the fact that he is a Liverpool fan, despite being rejected by the club as a teenager.

The one-cap England international was briefly in the Liverpool youth team, before being released and picked up by Tranmere Rovers, where he made his name and earned a move to Ipswich Town in 2011.

Cresswell played the full 90 minutes against Liverpool on Sunday, winning’s star man award.
