Liverpool’s move for defensive midfielder Mohamed Diame is back on, despite collapsing earlier this summer, according to Sky Sports.
The former Wigan midfielder was set for a move to Anfield until manager Kenny Dalglish was dismissed by the club’s owners.
But, now with Brendan Rodgers in charge of Liverpool, the Reds’ move for the free agent could well be back on, with Diame thought to favour a move to Merseyside.
Aston Villa have also shown some interest in the Senegal international, whilst a number of teams on the continent are keen to take his signature.
Meanwhile, long-term Liverpool target, youngster Wilfried Zaha has been all but given the green light to leave Crystal Palace.
The Reds have been linked with the England Under-21 international for some time, but Crystal Palace are reluctant to sell their prize possession.
However Palace co-owner Steve Parish told the BBC, “I guess for a club like Palace, everyone’s got a price.
“It’s a horrible thing to say in a way because we’d love to see a team succeed with the youth of the area at the heart of the team.
“Fingers crossed, we don’t get a big offer for Wilfried or Jonny [Williams] that we’re forced to consider.”
19-year-old Zaha was named the Football League’s Young Player of the Year last season. He has scored 10 goals in 93 appearances for the Eagles.
