Udinese full-back Andrea Dossena has suggested he would be interested in joining Liverpool.

The Italian is a target for the Premier League club, with reports claiming an £8million deal is in the pipeline.

Fiorentina and Juventus both want to keep Dossena in Serie A, but Liverpool are favourites to capture the left-back.

And Dossena admits the Reds' European pedigree makes Rafa Benitez's side a tempting proposition as he considers his future.

Rival United

"Liverpool are a famous team and it's good to be mentioned with them," said Dossena in The Sun.

"I want to play in the UEFA Champions League and Liverpool are a side who have won it and reach the late stages often.

"They are one of the famous names in Europe - comparable with the biggest teams in Italy.

"In England I think Liverpool are Manchester United's equal - they can rival them."
