The agent of Ryan Babel has confirmed Birmingham have made an offer for the Liverpool winger, but that the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement over the Dutchman.
Babel has been unhappy at Anfield due to a lack of playing time and manager Rafa Benitez is keen to raise funds for new signings.
Winnie Haatrecht, Babel’s representative, has now confirmed that his client would consider a move to St Andrew’s if both clubs agree a fee for his services.
“We know that Liverpool seriously thinks about the offer from Birmingham, we would consider a deal if both clubs come to an agreement,” Haatrecht told De Telegraaf. “I have sent all interested clubs to Liverpool, finally five or six clubs contacted the club. None of them came to an agreement with Liverpool.”
Haatrecht admits Babel would prefer to fight for his place at Liverpool but will move if he is surplus to requirements at Anfield.
“In general Ryan wants to succeed at Liverpool,” he added. “But if the people at Anfield conclude it’s better he leaves, we have to think about the next chapter in his career. We will look then to the team, the perspectives of the club and Ryan as well as a meeting with the manager.”
