Cardiff City have expressed an interest in re-signing Liverpool attacker Sheyi Ojo on loan for the season amid competition from elsewhere, according to Wales Online.
Ojo spent last season out on loan with Cardiff in the Championship and he managed to play a vital role for the Bluebirds and was a creative and goal-scoring presence for them.
In total, the 24-year-old managed to score five goals and provide seven assists in his 41 league appearances.
It has previously been reported by Wales Online that Liverpool are open to selling Ojo this summer with him far down the pecking order of attacking options at Anfield. That report suggested that the Bluebirds would be interested in making another move for him this summer.
The latest report from Wales Online has now revealed that the Bluebirds have expressed an interest in re-signing the attacker on a loan deal again for next term.

However, it also adds that Liverpool at the moment are looking to ship him out for good rather than send him out on a temporary basis again.
It is also being reported that Cardiff are now facing rivalled interest in Ojo from a club in Germany, although it is believed that there is yet to be any concrete interest from that side at this stage.
Re-signing Ojo would be an excellent move for Cardiff this summer and it would be a major plus if they were able to get him back as part of their squad for next season. However, from this latest update, it seems that Liverpool might not be willing to sanction another temporary move for him so the Bluebirds could well end up missing out on him.
It does seem that Liverpool want to sell and so Cardiff will have to decide whether they feel it is worth making a permanent offer for the 24-year-old. They are facing competition for his signature now and they will therefore need to move quickly to avoid missing out on a player that could make a real difference for them next term.
They will need to decide swiftly what they want to do regarding Ojo because if they are not signing him again then they will need to focus on other potential targets to sign in the attacking third. It would be a major boost for them if they were able to alter Liverpool’s stance and get him on another loan deal for next term.
