Spurs’ striker search turns to £15m Liverpool target

Published Add your comment

Free-scoring Frenchman Guillaume Hoarau is being courted by a number of Barclays Premier League clubs as Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain battle to retain the services of their star player.

The 26-year-old striker has been in prolific form for PSG this season and as such has been regularly linked with a move away from Paris, with the Premier League seemingly the most likely destination for the 6ft 4in target man.

Liverpool had been previously linked with a move for Hoarau as reported by – a player who has been likened to former Anfield and current Tottenham Hotspur front man Peter Crouch.

Despite Liverpool spending big to land Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll in January, the Anfield club are expected to further enhance their striking department when the transfer window reopens in June.


Although Hoarau is perhaps a more direct option than other strikers reportedly on the Liverpool radar, the former Le Havre forward could prove to be an exciting acquisition.

However, Kenny Dalglish is likely to face competition from Spurs who have also declared an interest as Harry Redknapp also searches for striker additions to bring to White Hart Lane.

Spurs officials are rumoured to be tabling a bid of around £11million, although reports in the French media suggest it may take more than that to convince PSG to part company with their star striker.

A move to Tottenham would appeal to Hoarau who may feel it is time to move on in order to further his career. But if Liverpool were to renew their interest in the summer, the overall fee is likely to rise and could fetch closer to £15milion.
