Liverpool midfielder target 'has heart set' on £10m move

Liverpool midfielder target Steven Defour could make a summer move to the Barclays Premier League, claims the player's agent.

The Belgian international has been linked with a number of English clubs in the past, with Liverpool thought to be one of those keen on bringing the player to Anfield.

Manchester United and Arsenal have also been monitoring the player in the past, with Sir Alex Ferguson famously writing the player a letter after a serious injury back in 2008.

Liverpool were first linked with the player back in the summer, with the Daily Mirror claiming the Merseysiders would challenge United for the player's signature.

A move failed to materialise however, and the player has continued to build his reputation at Standard Liege. After recovering from a couple of serious injuries, agent Paul Stefani told that they are hopeful of a move.

He has returned and made a full recovery, so we must keep our fingers crossed for the future, and hope that he doesn’t get a fresh injury," Stefani stated.


"Now he has a very big hope that things are going well. Every top club is following him and regularly watching him, but there is no concrete contact.

“The Premier League is something he likes very much, and he has performed well against Liverpool and Everton in Europe, he was one of the best players on the pitch. I think in the summer a Premier League would suit him for sure.”

Kenny Dalglish has hinted at a number of summer additions as he looks to revamp the Liverpool squad in his mould, and the centre of midfield is thought to be a position of interest to the Scotsman.

Christian Poulsen has failed to impress with his limited opportunities, and claims Defour has his 'heart set' on a move to England. It's thought the player would cost Liverpool, or any of his suitors, a fee in the region of £10 million.
