Liverpool face competition from Everton for England international

Published Add your comment

Liverpool and Everton are set to offer Peter Crouch the chance to return to Merseyside as Tottenham look set to offload the striker, according to the Mirror.

Crouch was a key figure in Spurs’ last Premier league campaign, scoring goal that fired them into the Champions League, but could be sacrificed to allow Harry Redknapp to bring in another forward.

Crouch spent three years playing in the red of Liverpool, initially finding it hard to make an impact, before being reunited with Redknapp at Portsmouth.

Now, though, it seems he is destined to be moved on by the former West Ham boss and Everton have emerged as a surprise destination.

With the Hammers still pursuing Toffees striker Yakubu, David Moyes could have funds to bring in a replacement.

West Ham have already seen a series of bids for the Nigerian rejected by Moyes, the latest being around £7 million, but more substantial offer could be enough to tempt them into selling.

And Crouch would cost about £7 million, a deal which Everton would see as good business – especially if it means they get one over on their city rivals.

New Reds boss Roy Hodgson has been linked with a move for Crouch recently but, with Fernando Torres having committed to the club, he may think again.
