Liverpool wing target linked with £9m EPL rival move

Published Add your comment

Wigan Athletic’s want-away midfielder Charles N’Zogbia has emerged as a summer transfer target for Sunderland reports the Daily Mirror.

The 24-year-old Frenchman has been highly coveted by a number of Barclays Premier League clubs over the past twelve months.

And latest reports indicate that Black Cats boss Steve Bruce is winning the race to bring the £9millon rated winger to the Stadium of Light when the transfer window reopens in June.

N’Zogbia has previously suggested that he will look to leave the Latics at the end of the current season when he said, "At the start Wigan was a springboard club for me.


"I've been here two years and I want to do everything possible to keep the club in the Premier League. I'll finish this season and then look at my future."

Liverpool are thought to be long-term admirers of the former Newcastle United palyer and Kenny Dalglish is understood to have previously been to the DW Stadium to watch him at close quarters.

Damien Comolli - the Liverpool Director of Football Strategy - has also been on record to explain that Liverpool lack penetration from wide areas of the pitch and, hence, were on the lookout for more potent wing options.

N'Zogbia is reported to be keen on a move to Anfield and, should Liverpool reignite their interest when the transfer window reopens, a fee of £9million is unlikely to put off the big-spending Reds owners.

NESV have shown they are willing to back their club financially in a bid to return Liverpool to its former glories, and will more than likely provide Sunderland with competition for N’Zogbia’s signature.
