Fiorentina striker Mounir El Hamdaoui admits he is flattered by reports linking him with a move to Liverpool.

The 28-year-old Morocco international only joined the Florence club from Ajax last summer but reports in his homeland have suggested a return to the Premier League is on the agenda.

El Hamdaoui, who had a spell at Tottenham earlier in his career, acknowledges that any link could prove mere speculation but was quick to praise the Merseyside club.

"Being linked with Liverpool is flattering but I really think it is paper talk so far," he told Sky Sports.

"Liverpool are a great club and to play there in a legendary stadium like Anfield would be fantastic and a dream.

"But I am at Fiorentina and I'm happy."
