Report: Liverpool Interested in Sevilla Winger Diego Perotti


With warmer weather just around the corner, Kenny Dalglish is looking to get some summer transactions in the works. reports that the Reds manager is seeking creative ways to best utilize Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll, and Sevilla winger Diego Perotti just might be a good fit.

Dalglish said that he did not have the right combination of players to help Suarez and Carroll live up to their full potential and is ready to make some deals.

"We signed Andy Carroll for five-and-a-half years, not for three weeks," Dalglish said. "[In the summer] we'll analyze what we need. Andy is going to be part of our team, so is Suarez, so we need a combination of players who are going to be complementary to what we have."

A native of Argentina, Perotti has been playing very well for his Sevilla squad and, according to various sources, has caught the attention of the Liverpool club. The 22-year-old winger has three goals and three assists in 22 games this season for Sevilla, who has very little chance of playing in the Champions League.

Even though he signed a five-year deal with Sevilla, the club has shown interest in dealing Perotti away if a decent offer is brought to the table. They are looking to get around £16 million for him.
