Liverpool’s pursuit of Seydou Keita is set to intensify after the Barcelona midfielder spoke of his admiration for the Premier League club yesterday.

Kenny Dalglish was linked with a move for the Mali international in January and looks certain continue his efforts to bring the 32-year-old to Anfield after Keita said he would be interested in a move to Liverpool: “A challenge elsewhere would appeal to me, and Liverpool are a great team with great players,” Keita is quoted as saying by TalkSport.

“We will wait until the end of the season to see what happens. I love Barcelona, it is difficult to find a better team than them, but I am ambitious and want to play football every week.”

Dalglish has already highlighted a number of players he wants at Anfield next season and Liverpool look set to overhaul a squad that has experienced a frustrating league campaign this term, despite lifting the Carling Cup on Sunday.
