Rumor Central: Euro giants after Seattle's Montero

Transfer rumors have always swirled around Seattle Sounders star Fredy Montero.

But the latest one is interesting based on the timing and the club names.

The Sounder At Heart blog unearthed a tweet by Henry "El Bocha" Jimenez, a high-profile Colombian reporter based in Bogota, who claimed that Montero is in the crosshairs of Dutch giants Ajax and English side Liverpool FC.

Sounders GM Adrian Hanauer has already gone on the record recently, telling Goal.com last month: "I think it's impossible to say no [to a big offer]."

Although he's created plenty of havoc, the 24-year-old Colombian has not registered a goal or assist thus far in 2012.
