Report: Liverpool favourites for out-of-favour Borussia Dortmund star Jakub Blaszczykowski

Liverpool are reportedly favourites to sign Borussia Dortmund's Jakub Blaszczykowski, who is yet to feature this season.

According to the Independent, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is eyeing a late £10 million move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jakub Blaszczykowski.

The Polish midfielder has not featured in new Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel's plans so far throughout the new Bundesliga campaign as Real Betis are also said to have shown an interest.

Reports from talkSPORT suggest that Liverpool currently hold the upper hand as they will be able to offer more than the 29-year-old's £1.8million-a-year wage package with Dortmund.

Blaszczykowski appeared on just 13 occasions last term, although his involvement, albeit brief, saw him create 13 chances and complete 65% of his take-ons down the right flank.

Understandably, the Poland international remains frustrated with his lack of opportunities at the Westfalenstadion and is considering his options in light of the recent interest from elsewhere.

For Liverpool, Blaszczykowski would further bolster Brendan Rodgers' attacking options down the right-flank but whether he is truly needed at Anfield is arguable.

He doesn’t meet the usual transfer criteria the Reds meet - being over 25 and demanding significant wages - which suggests a move may actually be unlikely.
