AS Roma fullback John Arne Riise cannot rule out a return to Liverpool.

Reports have suggested Kenny Dalglish could look to sign Riise, who departed Liverpool when Rafa Benitez was manager in 2008.

Riise said: "I am flattered by reports linking me with a return to England.

"Liverpool are close to my heart. They are a great club and I have some good memories. I have a contract here until June 2012, so you never know."

Marseille are also said to be tracking Riise, who played for Monaco before joining Liverpool in 2002, as a replacement for reported AC Milan target Taye Taiwo.

Riise said: "I love France as well. I played in Monaco and also enjoyed my time there."
