Liverpool are eyeing a shock move for Manchester City firebrand Craig Bellamy. The Daily Mail says Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has expressed interest in bringing their former striker Bellamy back to Anfield from Manchester City.

Sunderland, Stoke, Bolton, Everton and Celtic have also shown interest in the 32-year-old who played for Liverpool in 2006-07.

Bellamy has been ostracised by City manager Roberto Mancini and is one of those not allowed to train with the first-team squad.

City would like to get the Welshman off their wage bill and, if agreement is reached, he would be available on a free transfer.
