Liverpool plot Cup final scouting trip for fleet-footed wing wizard addition – reports

Liverpool head a growing list of clubs said to be weighing up a summer move for highly rated Motherwell wing wizard Chris Humphrey according to the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old starlet has earned rave reviews for a string of sensational performances in the SPL this season, with his fine form also helping the Fir Park squad to this year's Scottish Cup final.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is keen to add to his wide midfield options at Anfield, and has earmarked Humphrey as a value for money acquisition, despite the player having signed a contract extension to 2013 in January.

Humphrey is a considerable talent, thought to have a bright future ahead of him, and with Liverpool's emphasis once again placed on youth development – the Jamaican-born starlet is a player that would fit the mould of Anfield owners Fenway Sports Group.


 

Liverpool are reportedly sending a scout to monitor Humphrey at Hampden Park when Motherwell take on Celtic on May 21, bidding to win only their second Scottish Cup since winning their first in 1991.

Having attracted attention from a host of other Barclays Premier League suitors, the lightening fast wideman may well become the subject of a bidding war as a number of clubs vie for the £1million rated Humphrey's signature.

Dalglish has also been linked with big-money moves for Aston Villa pair Ashley Young and Stewart Downing as Liverpool continue to scour the market for wingers to supply the Reds' newfound strike partnership of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez.

Director of Football Damien Comolli has also reportedly scouted Valencia's Juan Mata, and Eden Hazard of Lille, but Humphrey would represent the smartest piece of business after Liverpool's exploits in the transfer market in the mid-season window.
