Liverpool interest quelled as Asian MVP 'begins talks'

Published Add your comment

Liverpool hopes of signing Keisuke Honda may be over after the Japanese playmaker began talks with Juventus, according to Sports Nippon daily.

The 25-year-old stared for Japan during last summer's World Cup as he scored twice and created another as the Blue Samurai reached the last-16.

But after suggesting he wanted a move away from his club CSKA Moscow, Honda has begun talks with Juventus, who are looking to propel themselves back into the Champions League, at the expense of Liverpool.


Like Juventus, Liverpool are undoing something of a squad revamp following a disappointing domestic season which saw them finish outside the qualifications places.

The Reds had invited Honda playing with new signing Luis Suarez and skipper Steven Gerrard in the Liverpool attack.

The likes of Arsenal and Aston Villa were also said to be interested in Honda following his performances in the Asian Cup, where he was named the tournaments most valuable player.
