French playmaker tipped to join Liverpool despite Spurs interest

Published Add your comment

Reported Tottenham target Jeremy Menez would be open to joining Liverpool, it has been claimed.

The versatile Roma playmaker has also previously been on the radar of Manchester United and has been linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico in the summer.

Sportingo initially reported that Spurs were monitoring the France international with great interest and there has been growing speculation in recent weeks that Menez wants out of Roma when the transfer window reopens.

According to, the 23-year-old has been unsettled since Claudio Ranieri was replaced in the Giallorossi hot seat by Vincenzo Montella and would be willing to follow the former to Anfield should he be offered the Liverpool job - as has been touted in the Italian press.

Menez has since told L'Equipe that an transfer window exit could indeed be on the cards - which is likely to alert Liverpool and Spurs to his potential availability.

He said: “I am not closed to thinking about leaving. It’s because of certain choices and certain people.”


Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli is thought to be keen on the former Monaco attacker, having previously monitored Menez whilst occupying a similar role with Saint-Etienne.

Comolli explained in January that Liverpool were on the look out for more potent wide options and - with Menez capable of operating on the wing - he could provide the Anfield club with the added cutting edge they are looking for.

Meanwhile, Spurs are unlikely to give up on the ex-Sochaux man in their respective pursuit of attaching reinforcements as Harry Redknapp attempts to bring further success to White Hart Lane next season.

Reportedly available at around €16 million, Menez is also said to be a target for Newcastle who have grand plans for the £35 million received from Liverpool for Andy Carroll.
