Liverpool shock link to French veteran

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are being linked with a shock move for Juventus striker David Trezeguet.

The French veteran has struggled in the last couple of seasons with both injury and a lack of form, but new Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is reportedly ready to gamble on the talismanic striker.

32-year-old Trezeguet began his career at Argentine club Platense, making his debut in 1993 before moving to Ligue 1 side Monaco two years later.

After scoring more than a goal every other game for the French giants, Trezeguet made the move to the Serie 'A' giants in 2000.

A decade has passed since the switch to the Stadio Olimpico di Torino, with the French striker has become a legend for the 'Old Lady'. 168 goals in 309 appearances proves that Trezeguet is a natural goalscorer, but the issues of age and injury won't rest easy with fans on Merseyside.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Trezeguet is set to leave an exodus from the club this summer, and reports in the British media now claim that the Reds are considering an £8 million move.

Spanish side Valencia are also thought to be interested in the frontman, although Hodgson is keen to bring in Trezeguet as a foil for Spaniard Fernando Torres.
