Liverpool lining up move for Ronaldinho

RonaldinhoLiverpool is the latest in a long list of clubs reportedly pursuing out of favour AC Milan playmaker Ronaldinho. The Brazilian, 30, has become a marginal figure at the San Siro, with boss Massimiliano Allegri preferring Robinho.

Ronaldinho's lack of regular football has led to conjecture his time will be up in January as promises of a new deal have been placed into the background by AC Milan. Itasportpress now claims Liverpool are looking at the former Barcelona man, and Roy Hodgson is said to be looking for an original side-kick to line up alongside Fernando Torres.

Ronaldinho would arrive on a free transfer as his contract at AC Milan expires in June, leaving him free to talk with other clubs. However, Liverpool would have to convince him to drop his €7.5 million (£6.3m) per annum wage stress for the man who has also been linked with moves to Los Angeles Galaxy and a host of Brazilian clubs.
