Hannover manager Mirko Slomka has admitted that he is an admirer of Liverpool striker Krisztian Nemeth.[LNB] The 21-year-old has yet to force a regular place in the first team at Anfield since arriving in 2007 and he spent time on loan with Blackpool and AEK Athens between 2009 and 2010.[LNB]Rafa Benitez's departure from Anfield and the arrival of Roy Hodgson as manager has led to further suggestions that Nemeth does not have a future on Merseyside beyond this summer.[LNB]As a result, speculation has implied that Italian side Lecce have bid £1million for the forward and Hannover are also being linked, with Slomka admitting a previous interest but confessing that he does not know if the player is for sale.[LNB]Slomka told Bild: "He is a good player with decent speed and he has been on loan at AEK Athens recently.[LNB]"He did not play many matches in recent campaigns and I am not aware if he is affordable."[LNB]But Hannover general manager Jorg Schmadtke said: "I am not aware of that player."[LNB]Nemeth's agent, Tibor Pataly, claims there is a lot of interest in his client and that he is looking for regular playing time.[LNB]"There are several interested clubs," Pataly said. "Some from Italy, Spain, Greece and even from the Bundesliga. We are looking for a club who will give him first-team experience."
