The Ghanaian has been tipped to be the subject of a bid from Liverpool this January, with manager Brendan Rodgers looking to add defensively-minded options to his squad in midfield.
Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Aston Villa only further confirmed Liverpool's need for a player of the Zebrette man’s ilk, as the Reds struggled with Lucas Leiva on the bench in the first half.
Badu, however, is a versatile figure capable of getting forward and breaking-up play. He has also been known to score from distance, and the Stadio Friuli bore witness to one of his spectacular strikes on Sunday as the 23-year-old treated onlookers to a cracking outside-of-the-boot volley.
Udinese ultimately fell 3-2 to the Aquile, as Manchester United and Tottenham target Hernanes hit the winner with a lovely long-range effort of his own.
Badu, a 2012 Puskas Award nominee, has already confirmed his desire to join Liverpool.
