Standard Liege's Defour: I'd love Liverpool move

Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour admits he'd jump at the chance of joining Liverpool.

With Xabi Alonso's future continuing to dominate the headlines as Real Madrid look to secure his signing, the likes of Roma's Alberto Aquilani and Defour have been linked with a move to Anfield.

Defour, 21, has also been linked with Real.

And quoted in the Daily Mail, he says: "I have an agreement with Standard Liege that I could go to a top club, and Liverpool fit the bill."

His agent Paul Stefani added: "Steven's name has been mentioned not only at Real Madrid, but also at Liverpool - they are looking at him too.

"Normally he would stay for another year, but nobody could say no to clubs like those - and Liege would not stand in his way."
