“Liverpool interest but move unlikely,” says van Bommel’s agent

Liverpool have shown an interest in signing Dutch midfielder Mark van Bommel from Bayern Munich, according to his agent.

Mino Raiola claims there has been communication over the Bayern Munich captain’s availability with Liverpool, but there have been better offers from other clubs.

van Bommel is available for free this summer when his contract ends with the Bundesliga Champions, and several clubs are pursuing him.

“I know about Liverpool’s interest, but other offers are currently more interesting,” Raiola told Bild.

“I cannot guarantee 100% that he will stay, but there is no rush with negotiations – I just have to do a good job.

“I have got to find Mark the perfect club and we still have enough time for that.”
