Liverpool have been linked with a rekindling of their interest in Italian forward Antonio Cassano.

The Reds had been in the picture for Cassano at the start of the year when Roy Hodgson was still in the Anfield dugout, yet no move materialised, the striker headed to AC Milan, and Hodgson was later sacked.

However, Cassano has once again been linked with a switch to the Merseyside giants, with manager Kenny Dalglish thought to be pondering adding his creative genius on the recommendation of director of football Damien Comolli.

Dalglish is known to be on the lookout for a talent that he believes can create chances from thin air – it was a criticism of the current side by the Scot last season – and Cassano is nothing if not creative.

While the 28-year-old has gone on record as stating his happiness at the San Siro, the Rossoneri have a plethora of striking options from which to choose.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Filippo Inzaghi, Alexandre Pato and Robinho all jostling with Cassano, it is clear the former Real Madrid striker may not receive the minutes on the pitch he desires.

A move to Liverpool could be the answer, although the Reds have made no official bid and concerns at the club are sure to linger over Cassano’s troubled past and questionable attitude.
