Genoa defender Andreas Granqvist has welcomed interest from Liverpool.Liverpool scouts watched the Swede in Serie A action last week.

"Honestly, I don't know much about this." Granqvist told Sportbladet. "I am fully focused on these two matches (World Cup qualifiers) and then we will see what happens.

"I am truly enjoying myself in Genoa, but obviously it's flattering to be linked with Liverpool.

"It's a historical club with much success.

"It has gone very well for me and I have got much positive feedback in Italy."
