Kenny Dalglish
Dalglish had a turbulent time at Newcastle.

Havard Nordtveit has revealed that he is aware of speculation connecting him to Liverpool, but the Norwegian youngster insists that no concrete offers have been made by the Reds for his services.

Nordtveit has starred for Borussia Monchengladbach since moving to the club from Arsenal in 2010. While the youngster was at the Gunners for three years, he spent several loan spells elsewhere during his tenure at the Emirates before making the permanent move to Germany.

And now Liverpool are being connected to the starlet, but Nordtveit says any information of a bid is news to him, for now anyway.

"I have not heard anything concrete about it from Borussia," Nordtveit told Nettavisen. "If it is just rumours or not I do not know.

"Borussia want me to focus 100 per cent on the job I have now. It is best we look at it after the season.

"I would like to continue my progress next year."

Nordveit did reveal that he is flattered by interest from Liverpool, though with reports claiming that he might make the move for €40 million, he admitted it was a little overwhelming for a boy from the country.

"I said that I will play [in the Premier League] once in a lifetime," he explained. "Whether it happens in one year, five years or ten years.

"It is always flattering to be linked to clubs like this, even if it's just rumours. It is positive and shows that I'm doing something right.

"To me, farm boy, I think [€40 million] sounds like a lot of money. But as I said, it's up to them."

Liverpool have been concentrating their transfer policy on bringing in youth players over the last 12 months, with Kenny Dalglish setting clear long term goals as well as short term ones of challenging for trophies.

The Reds winning the Carling Cup last weekend looks to be the start of a new era for the side, and with more youth players coming to Merseyside from across the world, Dalglish is hoping to keep the club winning medals and Cups.
