Hamburg technical director Frank Arnesen has hinted at an interest in Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt.
Kuyt, who will be 32 in the summer, recently said that he was finding it frustrating that he is no longer guaranteed a first-team place at Liverpool and may be forced to consider his future.
He has a year remaining on his contract and, with several clubs expected to battle for his signature, Arnesen has suggested Hamburg may be in the race.
It is believed a clause in the player's contract would allow him to leave Anfield for £1 million this summer.
"A player like Kuyt, who is still in good shape, can add something to any team," he told Bild. "He is a real team-player with an excellent attitude."
There had been reports claiming initial negotiations had taken place, but Kuyt's agent said that was not the case.
"There have not been any talks with Arnesen or with someone else from HSV," agent Rob Jansen said. "Would Kuyt be interested in a move to the Bundesliga? I can't say anything about that. A lot of clubs have made enquiries, but there's nothing concrete for now."
