Agent confirms Russian interest for Liverpool striker Voronin

The agent of Liverpool striker Andriy Voronin has revealed the interest of Russian clubs.

The agent of Liverpool striker Andriy Voronin has revealed the interest of Russian clubs.

The Ukraine international does not figure in Rafa Benitez's plans and the Reds boss is ready to offload him to raise funds for his own signings in this month's transfer window.

Voronin was sent on loan to Hertha Berlin last season and although he impressed in Germany he has failed to nail down a place in the Liverpool side.

Dinamo Moscow are understood to be the Russian side chasing Voronin and the player's agent, Andriy Golovach, has confirmed the striker is poised to leave Anfield.

"He has received a concrete offer from a Russian top-flight outfit as he is having the final say," Golovach told Ukrainian newspaper Gaseta.

"In terms of his Liverpool deal it is about a cancellation right now, not about a new loan transfer."

Hertha Berlin have also been linked with a move to bring Voronin back to the German capital, but Golovach insists the player has no plans to return to the Bundesliga outfit with the club facing a massive struggle to avoid relegation.

"Hertha BSC is almost in Bundesliga 2, Andriy does not want to get part of a relegation dogfight," added Golovach.
