Russian star reveals Liverpool interest

Aleksandr Kerzhakov has conceded that despite Liverpool’s reported interest, he is unsure whether he wants to leave Zenit.

The Zenit St Petersburg has been in fantastic form this season, scoring 13 goals in 25 games, and has been linked with a plethora of clubs around Europe in the past 12 months.

Liverpool is one of those reportedly keen on the 27-year-old striker, as Roy Hodgson looks to bolster his attacking options, but Kerzhakov has conceded that he remains happy with life in Russia and there are only a few clubs in the world that could tempt him to quit Zenit.

“The talk about Liverpool is not baseless…The British club came to my agent with a proposal. I answered… I didn’t answer at all.

“I have other things to think about and in all respects I am happy in Russia. My team is in first place in the national championship and I have always said that I wanted to play for Zenit.

“In the case of Liverpool I will not take the initiative, but I can count the fingers on one hand for the amount of clubs I could theoretically go to.

“This is because Zenit is playing beautiful, modern football and the club is growing rapidly. And I am here, at home.” Rossiyskaya Gazeta
