Liverpool linked with another 33 year old

Liverpool are looking to sign French midfielder and former Arsenal star Patrick Vieira.

The 33-year-old is struggling to hold his place in the Inter Milan side and was dropped for the World Cup play-offs against the Republic of Ireland.

Vieira, who wants to be on the plane to South Africa in 2010, believes a move to a club where he can get more first-team football can reignite his international career.

Tottenham were linked with the ex-Arsenal man in the summer and have once again emerged as a possible destination for the midfielder.

However, Liverpool are believed to be favourites and reports in Italy claim Rafa Benitez is lining up a move in January for the 1998 World Cup winner.

Summer signing Alberto Aquilani is still returning from injury and with Javier Mascherano and Lucas Leiva struggling for form, a loan move for Vieira is rumoured to go ahead.
