With the forward finding himself out of favour at Anfield, Mark Hughes is keen to take the opportunity to strengthen his squad.
Stoke City are vying to take Liverpool outcast Oussama Assaidi on loan.
The 25-year-old only arrived at Anfield last season, but featured just four times in the league.
Mark Hughes will face competition from a host of European clubs though, as the Daily Mail claim that Genoa, Anderlecht and Feyenoord are all interested in the Moroccan.
Brendan Rodgers paid £2.4m for Assaidi this time last year after he scored ten goals in 27 games from the wing for Dutch side Heerenveen, but has clearly not been impressed by the wide man, electing to primarily experiment with him in the Europa League.
All-in-all Assaidi made 12 competitive appearances for the Reds last season, failing to manage a single goal or assist.
With the arrival of Iago Aspas from Celta de Vigo this summer, Assaidi looks set to be behind the Spaniard, young Raheem Sterling and even forgotten man Fabio Borini in the pecking order for the wing spot at Anfield.
Rodgers is thought to have no issue with Assaidi leaving on loan should he feel comfortable with the terms offered by another club. Assaidi would certainly offer some much-needed pace to a Stoke side who currently only have the ageing Jermaine Pennant and Matthew Etherington and the injury prone Brek Shea and Michael Kightly as wide-options.
