Fiorentina ace dismisses Liverpool transfer link
Ex Tottenham striker Mounir El Hamdaoui has admitted he is flattered with links to Liverpool but has dismissed it simply as paper talk.
The Moroccan international is currently playing for Fiorentina, following a move from Ajax, and has struggled to adapt to life in Serie A scoring only 3 goals in 16 games.
Mounir El Hamdaoui was a prolific goalscorer during his time in Holland; however has failed to rediscover his form in front of goal since joining last summer.
Brendan Rodgers is looking to add to his Liverpool squad this summer and reports suggested that he was looking to the 28-year old, who partnered Luis Suarez during their time together at the Amsterdam Arena.
Despite a poor start to his time in Florence, El Hamdaoui says he remains happy in Italy despite the links with Liverpool:
“Being linked with Liverpool is flattering but I really think it is paper talk so far,”
“Liverpool are a great club and to play there in a legendary stadium like Anfield would be fantastic and a dream.
“But I am at Fiorentina and I’m happy.” Sky Sports
