Doni deal pending as first move made by Dalglish

Published Add your comment

Kenny Dalglish has made his first move in preparation for the transfer window, paving the way for goalkeeper Alexander Doni to sign a deal with the club.

"I spoke to the club [Roma] yesterday and they confirmed they are holding talks with Liverpool to reach an agreement regarding the transfer of Doni," Doni's agent Ovidio Colucci said.

"Once an agreement is reached betwen the two clubs, we will begin negotiating personal terms with Liverpool.

"Doni would be very happy to join Liverpool and play in the Premier League."


Speculation has been rife over what Dalglish’s moves will be in the summer; the manager recently said that the Merseyside club may spend big, Dalglish will attempt to spend wisely.

"Whether is it massively or cheaply, it doesn't make any difference as long as you spend well," Dalglish told reporters.

"Budgets are all very well and good but it doesn't guarantee you anything.

"But as long as your players are playing well you have a chance.

"Like every other club there will be movement in and out and I am sure there will be plenty of speculation - some we might even recognise the names of."

Dalglish generally looks to be making moves toward younger players, with Liverpool strongly linked to Jordan Henderson, Phil Jones and Connor Wickham. These possible signings signal a move toward building a fresh squad from scratch, with Dalglish hopeful that the side can challenge for trophies in the next 2-3 years.

Andy Carroll, another bright youngster who signed with the club in January, recently said he believed some big names would head to the club this summer.

"There are massive names here, it's a massive club and I don't see why we can't attract big names,” Carroll said.

While Doni is 30-years-old, the keeper would look to serve as a good, strong back up to Pepe Reina. And as the transfer window gets closer to opening, Doni is a good start for the newly permanent Liverpool manager.
