Dirk Kuyt could be on his way out of Liverpool after Serie A giants Inter Milan made a move for the Liverpool striker, the Daily Mail understands.
It’s the second time in 12 months that the Italian club have tried to sign Kuyt and speculation was fierce that he could be on the move.
That was heightened after the Dutchman was left on the bench for the opening day draw against Sunderland but returned to the fray in Saturday’s 2-0 against Arsenal.
His agent Rob Jansen revealed that Inter had been in contact again as they seek a replacement for Samuel Eto’o who is poised to leave the San Siro for Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.
Jansen said: “Inter Milan have made an attractive offer for Dirk. However, the clubs have yet to agree a deal.”
Despite the interest from Italy it’s thought that Kuyt would be unwilling to leave Anfield where he is a big part of Kenny Dalglish’s plans.
Since signing for the club in 2006 he has become a firm fans favourite with his work ethic and cult hero status endearing him to the Kop.
The 31-year-old only signed a contract extension at the end of last season and it’s unlikely that he would be prepared to disrupt his family who are settled on Merseyside.
