Liverpool ready to move for €8m France star as Adam move falters

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly considering reviving their interest in Saint-Etienne midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

According to The Times, the Merseysiders are closely monitoring the France international as a move for Charlie Adam continues to stall.

Blackpool are growing increasingly irritated at the conduct of Liverpool in their pursuit of Adam, and the Reds are now ready to cut their losses and sound out another potential acquisition.

And, although Matuidi occupies a deeper midfield role to Adam, Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is thought to be keen to add a more defensive minded midfielder to his ranks in order to take the reigns off Steven Gerrard.


Matuidi is well known to Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli, who held the same role at Saint-Etienne before moving to Anfield, and he is an outed admirer of the 23-year-old.

However, since his departure to Liverpool, he has angered his former employers who will be reluctant to sell their best players to the Reds.

Matuidi is valued at around €8 million, but whether or not Liverpool are able to seal a deal for the midfielder remains to be seen.
