Liverpool were not the only club desperate to sign Dynamo Moscow winger Balazs Dzsudzsak in the winter window, with the player’s agent confirming Inter pushed hard for his client on 31st January, while the player is open to a move in the summer, something which sets the stage for a transfer duel.
Liverpool made a move to bring Dzsudzsak to Anfield in last month’s transfer window, but wanted to take the Hungarian on loan initially, an agreement which did not suit Dynamo Moscow, who as a result terminated negotiations with the English giants.
Dzsudzsak was at pains to point out that it was not he who scuppered the deal, in a clear hint he would welcome a switch to Liverpool.
But the Premier League side are not the player’s only suitors, with Inter having tried to sign the former PSV Eindhoven winger at the same time.
And Dzsudzsak is a popular option in Liverpool and Milan, his agent Jozsef Voroshbani told Russian daily Izvestia.
"Inter along with Liverpool wanted to see Balazs in their squad", he told the Russian daily.
"The Italians were ready to sign Dzsudzsak, but Dynamo would not let go of the player."
And Voroshbani declared his hope that his client will be allowed to leave Dynamo Moscow in the summer.
"My client really likes it in Moscow, but he has a desire to try his hand in one of the top European leagues.
"I hope that in the summer, Dynamo will look at any details that arrive in a proposal for the player."
Inter are thought to have offered €14M to sign Dzsudzsak but, though that may have been enough of a total fee, several minor details prevented the transfer from moving forward.
Now there is the clear possibility of a battle in the summer between Inter and Liverpool for Dzsudzsak, who is keen to move to a bigger league.
The winger initially moved to Russia in June 2011, signing for big spending Anzhi Makhachkala from PSV Eindhoven.
He switched to Dynamo Moscow in January 2012.
