Wolfsburg midfielder Diego is thrilled by the interest of Liverpool.
Liverpool have been linked with the Brazilian, who only moved to struggling Wolfsburg in August from Juventus.
Diego has been watched by Reds football chief Damien Comolli and is aware of the rumours linking him with a move to Anfield.
“I am honored that such a club has set their eyes on me,” said Diego.
“They are one of the most prestigious teams in the world. Playing for them would be an honour.”
26 year old Brazilian playmaker Diego has had something of a bumpy first season at Wolfsburg, having been pretty inconsistent at times, to angering former boss Steve McClaren by missing a penalty he wasn’t supposed to take and reportedly generally falling out with all and sundry. I am therefore not surprised he would be keen on a move to Liverpool.
Given also that Wolfsburg may get relegated it seems even likely the former Werder Bremen and Juventus man would be pushing for a move away from the Volkswagen run club. Could Kenny Dalglish use the flair player though?
Liverpool have seen the likes of Lucas and Raul Meireles really up their game and one would imagine that Steven Gerrard would also be that touch of added creativity so how would Diego fit in at the Merseyside club, a club that is happy to allow talented Italian international Alberto Aquilani leave for Juventus.
Clearly Diego is a good player but perhaps his signing would be little more than a luxury back up that the club could do without, not least if, as speculated, he can be a dressing room disruption.
