Liverpool’s ‘guest’ edges closer to Anfield move

Published Add your comment

Rennes have revealed midfielder Sylvain Marveaux has set his heart on a move away from the Ligue 1 team.

Marveaux has long been reportedly to be unhappy at the club and, after meeting with the player, Rennes have confirmed his desire to leave.

The 24-year-old has recently been a guest of Liverpool’s and watched the Anfield side’s disappointing 1-0 loss to bottom side Wolves.

Marveaux is a left winger by trade, a position which has been made a priority by Liverpool and his versatility is also appealing to manager Roy Hodgson.

However, the Frenchman has been plagued by injury over the last season and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines during the second half of the season.

However Liverpool, who have unrivalled contacts in France due to their director of football strategy Damian Comolli, are willing to gamble on a player valued at around £2 million.

And it seems as though Marveaux has already played his last game for Rennes, although no transfer to Anfield has yet been mentioned by either party.

"We met Sylvain twice and I will meet him again, but I don't think he wants to stay at Rennes," general manager Pierre Dréossi told the club's official website.

"He would have played only five or six more games for Rennes this term, that's all."
