Former Liverpool striker 'set to snub' Toffees chance

Published Add your comment

Former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse is 'set to snub' the chance of moving to Everton in favour of Lazio, according to talkSPORT.

The maverick French striker enjoyed a successful spell on Merseyside in the past, and was even linked with a return to Anfield in the summer under former Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson.

However, the link fell flat and Cisse enjoyed another successful season with Greek super league runners-up Panathinaikos.

His form has led to speculation over a possible move to Everton, with David Moyes keen to bring the striker to Goodison Park and pair him with compatriot Louis Saha.

The 29-year-old appears to have turned his back on the chance to join the Toffees though, to the certain delight of Liverpool fans, after the player admitted he's close to a Lazio switch.

"Lazio would be the ideal team for me. It's a great side in a fantastic league," the former Sunderland loanee told Corriere Dello Sport.

"It is absolutely not true that I don't want to come, in fact it is quite the opposite."


The report goes on to claim Cisse will sign a four-year contract in the coming days, ending the Everton interest.

Moyes will now have to turn his attentions elsewhere, with Jay Bothroyd and Craig Mackail-Smith other strikers linked with a move to Everton in the transfer window.
