Liverpool have contacted Borussia Dortmund over the availability of Jakub Blaszczykowski, the midfielder's representative has confirmed.
The 26-year-old, who featured for Poland at Euro 2012 last month, netted six times during Dortmund's title-winning Bundesliga campaign last season.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admitted on Monday that the club were close to completing a signing and hinted that a deal for a "real exciting" unnamed player could be announced later this week, with Joe Allen, Fabio Borini and Daniel Sturridge all targets.

Jerzy Brzeczek, the uncle and representative of Blaszczykowski, confirmed that the Reds are among the sides interested in the midfielder along with Inter, Lazio and two Russian clubs.
"Jakub has a contract with Borussia and is happy at the club, so he will not make any rash decisions. All important discussions regarding his future we conduct with Borussia," a statement read on Kubablaszczykowski.pl.
Blaszczykowski's current contract with Dortmund runs until the summer of 2013, and he is believed to be keen to extend his stay at the Bundesliga champions.
However, the winger is adamant that he has not made a decision about his future just yet.
He revealed: "It's not true that I have already signed a contract. My current deal with Dortmund still runs [for another season] and I'm focusing on BVB. There's no reason to talk about a contract at this point.”
