€10m Liverpool target set for summer switch

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker target Gervinho is being linked with a summer switch to Barclays Premier League rivals Newcastle.

The Ivorian international striker was has been heavily linked with an Anfield switch in the past, with Liverpool thought to be monitoring the player as recently as November.

Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Napoli were also thought to be keen on the player dubbed 'the next Drogba', but the Sunday Sun claims Alan Pardew is now leading the race to sign the player in the summer.

Valued at around €10 million, the Lille striker has less than eighteen months left on his contract and is being heavily linked with a Stade Lille-Metropole exit.

L’Equipe reported that French scout Laurent Viaud went to watch the player for Liverpool back in November, but much has changed at Anfield since then.

Kenny Dalglish has been installed as manager for the Merseysiders, and two additional strikers have been drafted in at Liverpool in the shape of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll.


Owners NESV showed that they were willing to back the manager financially with regards to Liverpool club targets, and could do again should Dalglish wish to challenge for the Ligue 1 star's signature.

Newcastle are looking for a replacement for Carroll, who left for the Reds for £35 million on deadline day in January, and Gervinho is seen as the ideal replacement at St James' Park.
