Liverpool Winger Milan Jovanovic still pursued by VfL Wolfsburg.

Former England boss Steve McClaren is still in search of an offensive wide attacker to assist in filling the void left by Manchester City's most recent high profile signing, Edin Dzeko. The Serbian has been a fringe player under both Roy Hodgsen and now Kenny Dalglish. He was the last signing of Rafa Benitez's reign in Anfield, signed as a free transfer from Belgian side Standard Liege.

Jovanovic Runs to Space
Jovanovic has failed to truly impress in his five starts in the premier league and has only produced 2 goals from his seventeen first team appearances. A recent interview in LFC Weekly revealed that Milan is relishing his time under Kenny Dalglish and that the Liverpool legend is indeed something special to the players and the club.

However, his admiration of his new boss doesn't seem to be enough to warrant him a spot in the first eleven, nor even many cameo appearances from the bench. Wolfburg's signing of Jovanovic's former Standard teammate and strike partner, Dieumerci Mbokani, from Monaco might sweeten the resolve of the Serbian to move on.

A £6 Million offer was reportedly made yesterday, and also a possible loan move till the summer surfacing earlier this morning. It appears that despite his desire to fight for his place under the new guard, the needs of Kenny Dalglish and Damien Camoli to raise quick cash to bolster the front lines with a second quality striker seem more paramount.
