Liverpool striker target 'will try to leave' in the summer

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker target Roman Pavlyuchenko is heading for a Spurs exit this summer.

The Russian international forward has struggled to break into the first team at north London during his two and a half years at the club, and former Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson was thought to be keen on bringing the player to Anfield.

Director of Football strategy at Liverpool, Damien Comolli, is also thought to be keen on the player and could advise Kenny Dalglish to pursue Pavlyuchenko in the summer.

"The way I see it, the manager just doesn't trust me and it doesn't matter if I play well, score goals or try my best in training - nothing will make him change his mind about me," said Pavlyuchenko told Sport-Express in reference to Harry Redknapp.

"So I'm not going to extend my contract, which expires at the end of next season, and will try to leave the club over the summer transfer window."

Roma and Newcastle are also thought to be interested in signing the player, with the Toon still looking to solve their striker problems after the sale of Andy Carroll.

Liverpool were linked with a £14 million move for the player on deadline day in August, and are still thought to be keen on bringing another striker to the club after the additions of Luis Suarez and Carroll.


New owners NESV have already showed they are willing to back Dalglish with player acquisitions, and the Liverpool chief is already being linked with a number of players despite the summer window being over three months away.

Ashley Young and Christian Eriksen are just two players linked with the Merseysiders, but it remains unclear if Pavlyuchenko is on the Liverpool radar.
