Tuncay Sanli has admitted he would relish the opportunity to join Liverpool this summer.
The Turkey international was part of the Middlesbrough squad which slipped out of the Premier League at the end of the 2008/09 campaign.
He is expected to form part of a Riverside Stadium exodus this summer, and there are no shortage of potential takers.
Tuncay's selfless running and creative ability marks him out as an ideal foil to a free-scoring centre-forward.
That has attracted the attention of Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, among others, who is keen to pair the 27-year-old alongside Spanish superstar Fernando Torres.
Rumours of interest from Anfield have now reached Tuncay and he claims a switch to Merseyside would appeal.
"Yes, I've heard something about that but nothing official has arrived to me," he said.
"Of course I would like to play for a big club."
