Although his name does not summon excitement immediately, Dynamo Moscow winger Balazs Dzsudzsak could soon be tongue-tying Premier League commentators if he gets his ‘dream move’ to Liverpool.
A move to Merseyside could well be on the cards for the 27-year-old Hungarian international, whose exploits have attracted interest from both Liverpool and Everton in the past.
Both clubs are in Premier League action, where Everton should be able to see off relegation-threatened Cardiff at Goodison Park, backed up by a price of 3/10 to prevail.
According to Dzsudzsák’s agent, Jozsef Voroshbarani, the Toffees showed their hand in the recent January transfer window.
“Yes, in the winter, Everton showed interest in Dzsudzsák. But now negotiations are frozen. Talks can happen in the summer when the transfer window reopens,” he said.
However, Everton’s capture of Aiden McGeady in the final throws of the winter sales may just have scratched Roberto Martinez’s itch to sign a winger.
It’s well documented that his Anfield counterpart Brendan Rodgers had no such luck in landing his intended winter wing-man though.
Yehven Konoplyanka’s club Dnipro created enough barriers to prevent an expected 11th-hour move in the end, which leaves Liverpool very much in the market for a wide midfielder still.
Having been publicly burnt by the Ukrainians it would be no great surprise to see Liverpool recast their nets this summer and Dzsudzsák’s CV is certainly an attractive one.
After securing a move to Dutch side PSV from his native Debrecen back in 2007, Dzsudzsák went on to excel as a left winger, finishing the 2009/10 campaign as the leading Eredivisie assister with 15 from 32 appearances.
A considerable goal-threat too – scoring 44 times in just 114 appearances – Dzsudzsák was then tempted into joining the ill-fated Anzhi Machhachkala project in 2011.
Following the Russian club’s fire sale, Dynamo welcomed him in, but now it appears he has designs on a move to the Premier League and Anfield in particular.
“The England club (Liverpool) wanted to loan me for six months but Dynamo would only agree to sell. It’s probably everyone’s dream to play for a club like Liverpool.”
