€14 million Bundesliga ace slams Liverpool: 'Why would I move?'

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their reported pursuit of Neven Subotic after the Serbian slammed reports linking him with a move to Merseyside.

When questioned about the alleged interest in his signature, the 22-year-old Borussia Dortmund defender quickly nipped in the bud any speculation regarding his future in Germany.

"Why should I leave such a team like Dortmund?" he said - as reported by the Daily Mail. "I have not heard anything from Liverpool."

The €14 million-rated centre-back was thought to have been identified by Liverpool as a potential January target as Roy Hodgson looks to bolster his defensive ranks at Anfield.

The Liverpool boss is believed to be in the market for defensive reinforcements after the long-term injury to Jamie Carragher.

The 33-year-old will be sidelined for three months after dislocating his shoulder as Liverpool lost to Spurs last month and Subotic is one of several players to have been suggested as a replacement for the Anfield hero.

Liverpool are worryingly short of centre-backs currently - with Daniel Agger also a fitness concern - so Hodgson is thought to be keen to add at least one more stopper in the New Year.

Frenchman Adil Rami and Birmingham centre-half Scott Dann are also reportedly on the Liverpool radar as Hodgson and NESV look to draft in reinforcements to Anfield next month.
