Igor Biscan'S Liverpool revival is over. The Croat hasn't been offered a new deal and he's available on a Bosman transfer, with Italians Lazio leading the chase.
The 27-year-old midfielder played a major role in the club's triumphant Champions League campaign, enjoying his most consistent season since his £5.5m transfer in 2000.
However, his radical improvement wasn't enough to convince manager Rafa Benitez to prolong his Liverpool career.
Biscan will leave with his head held high following a season in which he finally showed some of the potential which motivated Gerard Houllier to lure him from Croatia Zagreb.
After a nightmare spell in defence two seasons ago, he was far more comfortable in his favoured central role.
His performances against Deportivo La Coruna, Bayer Leverkusen and Juventus went some way to restoring a hitherto blemished reputation, and the shy Croat even became a folk hero for some sections of the Anfield crowd.
