Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt is a major target for German club Hamburg in the summer, as the club looks to rebuild from the front.

Hamburg manager Thorsten Fink is thought to be a great fan of the Dutch forward Dirk Kuyt, who has been largely utilised as a right-winger by Liverpool in the last couple of seasons. It is thought that Dirk Kuyt has been persuaded with the thought of playing up front for Hamburg at the start of the new season. The 30-year-old Dirk Kuyt looks to be coming to the end of his Liverpool career after Kenny Dalglish has not picked him for the most important matches.
Liverpool paid Dutch club Feyenoord £ 9 million for the services back in 2006.

Even though it is highly unlikely that they will be able to recoup the money, Dirk Kuyt's six year stay at Anfield finally looks to be coming to an end. He was already linked with a move abroad in the summer, but due to the lack of concrete bid from clubs, he decided to stay for one more season. When asked about the possibility of signing Dirk Kuyt, Hamburg manager Thorsten Fink said that he is a class centre forward and that Hamburg will be going to great lengths in order to secure his signature.

"He has class, and he is also a fighter. There is nothing more that needs to be said about the quality of this player. Whether this is something we feel we want to commit to, we will see," Fink told the German sports magazine Kicker his opinion about Liverpool striker Kuyt. Meanwhile, former Chelsea sporting director Frank Arnesen, who is at Hamburg on a similar role, has said that Kuyt is a player they would like to sign in the summer.
