Liverpool move for Juventus legend Andrea Pirlo
Pirlo made it clear he had no intention of joining another side in Serie A and hinted he could be attracted to a Major League Soccer franchise in the US.

London: Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will make an all-out attempt to persuade Juventus maestro Andrea Pirlo to move to the English football club in the summer.

Pirlo was imperious in Juventus' 2-1 Champions League semi-final first-leg win over Real Madrid on Tuesday, but after the game the 35-year-old Italian international indicated he would leave the club in the summer, dailymail.co.uk reported on Saturday.

Pirlo made it clear he had no intention of joining another side in Serie A and hinted he could be attracted to a Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise in the United States.

But his potential availability has immediately alerted several Premier League clubs, especially Liverpool, given the departure of their midfield talisman Steve Gerrard to Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the season.

Despite his age, Pirlo proved again in the match against Real his ability to pull the strings with his precise passing and reading of the game from a deep lying midfield role.

His natural inclination is to promote exactly the sort of possession football Rodgers favours and also help Jordan Henderson blossom as the team's midfield marauder with Pirlo using his experience to pull the strings.

Pirlo would come on a small a fee or even on a free transfer which would enable Liverpool to put to together a financial package that would meet the player's personal demands but also not blow their wage structure.

The Reds though must at least double a seven million pounds offer if they are to land Inter Milan's midfielder Mateo Kovacic.
