Jovanovic has endured an unsuccessful time at Liverpool since joining the club from Standard Liege in 2010 on a free transfer.

And after making just five Premier League starts last season, the Serbia international is expected to find pastures new this summer.

Asked about Belgian side Anderlecht's alleged interest, he told Foot Magazine: "My wife adores Brussels and is pushing me to return to Belgium where I only have one offer.

"I am still buzzing after my meeting with Anderlecht in Qatar. I was moved by the importance given to me by the Belgian sporting press over the past week. And that makes me think because Belgium is my second country!"

French club Lille have also been mentioned as potential suitors, and Jovanovic, 30, concedes he would also be tempted by a switch to Ligue 1.

He told Nord Eclair: "Lille, like Anderlecht, are a nice option for me.

"This is a good club, which plays at the top of the French game, a high-level competition, and who will play the group stage of Champions League. That's interesting. For now, I listen to everyone."
