Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is being linked with a shock move for Barcelona flop Alex Hleb.

The Daily Mail says Dalglish is weighing up a move for former Arsenal midfielder Hleb.

It has already been widely reported that QPR are interested in the 30-year-old.

The Belarussian has endured a torrid time since leaving Arsenal for Barcelona in 2008.

Dalglish is considering his options in the final few days of the transfer window.

The Reds have faced some difficult times this season, but it could still be a successful campaign. Liverpool are now in the League Cup final, and face an FA Cup fourth round clash with Manchester United this weekend.
