Liverpool's move to sign Mohamed Diame is reportedly back on.
Diame is out of contract and is available on a free transfer, and recently saw a move to Anfield break down following the departure of Kenny Dalglish as manager.
But according to Sky Sports, new Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is keen on signing the 24-year-old.
Everton and Newcastle have also been linked with the Senegal international, while according to Friday's report, Aston Villa are also showing interest.
Spanish outfit Malaga are also thought to be keen.
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan earlier this week blasted Diame, inisting his departure from the DW Stadium was "down to money, money, money".
"Diame is a good player and he is a good lad and we were disappointed that he did not sign for Wigan to be honest because he could not get a club in Spain when he was there three years," he told Goal.com.
"So he is available on a free. He unfortunately has the problem with his ticker – his heart – and that is a serious problem. We have always addressed it and sort of helped him along with it. You have to keep that heart machine within 50 yards of him all the time.
"We picked him up when Barcelona had refused him because of his heart and we took the chance and brought him over and I don’t think that he has repaid the faith that we put in him and the chance we gave.
"I don’t think that is the lad – that is the agent giving him all kinds of advice. It’s down to money, money, money.
"I think he should be able to step back and have a look and think: Who gave me the chance to play in the Premier League? It was Wigan Athletic. He owes a lot to Roberto [Martinez] and I really don’t think he has repaid that."
