Liverpool have reportedly opened talks with Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Sigurdsson, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Swansea from Hoffenheim, has been linked with a number of clubs in recent weeks as a result of a number of impressive performances at the Liberty Stadium, with Arsenal, Manchester United, and Newcastle also keen.
And although a permanent move to Swansea was close to going through last week, according to Sky Sports, Sigurdsson is now speaking with Liverpool and other Premier League clubs.
Swansea had agreed a £7million fee with Hoffenheim for the 22-year-old, but he is yet to put pen-to-paper on a contract, and despite having verbally agreed the transfer, last week hinted that he was ready to follow Brendan Rodgers to Anfield.
Rodgers on Friday admitted he was keen on signing Sigurdsson, although he insisted he would not hijack any deal that had been put in place with his former club.
"First and foremost, Gylfi is a Hoffenheim player," he told Liverpool's official website.
"I took him on loan for the second half of last season and he did very, very well. He scored seven goals and made a real, positive contribution.
"I wanted to sign him for Swansea but, like I've said to him and his representatives, that has to be his first port of call.
"If he comes into the market for whatever reason - and I'm sure there'll be a number of clubs interested in Gylfi - then of course I would like to be in a position to put our case here at Liverpool to sign him.
"But I've always said, I think he's a player Swansea have had an agreement with and they have to have every chance to try and sign him. That's only right.
"If anything changes from that, we'll look at it from there."
