Kerzhakov to Liverpool? Bilyaletdinov Linked to Return Home? Rumours to Think AboutBy: Roman | November 14th, 2010
In recent news, Zenit’s top-man Kerzhakov has been approached by Roy Hodgson’s struggling Liverpool side from the Barclay’s Premier League. Roy Hodgson, taking charge of a faltered, unconsisting team decides to look in Russia for a player from Zenit. Kerzhakov, who scored two hat-tricks in the last two weeks in the Russian Premier League was approached with interest from the Reds but is unlikely to transfer teams. “The talk about Liverpool is not baseless, the British club came to my agent with a proposal but I did not give an answer.” Kerzhakov told Rossiskaya Gazzetta. The Zenit man is likely to stay considering his team is in top form under Luciano Spalletti and in first place in the Russian league. “I have other things to think about and in all respects I am happy in Russia. My team is in first place in the national championship and I have always said that I wanted to play for Zenit.” The striker popped in 12 goals in the last 26 games including two goals from the last two games for the national team against Ireland and Macedonia and is in deadly top form.
“In the case of Liverpool I will take no initiative, but I can count the fingers on one hand for the amount of clubs I could theoretically go to.
“This is because Zenit is playing beautiful, modern football and the club is growing rapidly. And I am here, at home.”

Frustrated Bilyaletdinov from the People’s Club has been mainly a substitute this season having started only a handful of times. Having played only 31 games from his debut in 2009, Bilyaletdinov is suspected to leave the club and most likely return to his home in Russia.The Ex-Lokomotiv man scored 7 goals since his first game, he will look elsewhere to play. Diniyar “Bily” Bilyaletdinov scored one of his goals against Manchester United, which was voted the best goal of Everton that season. In the future after the leave from Everton, he could most likely be seen playing for his old club “Lokomotiv Moscow”.
