Liverpool move for £9m winger back on - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are considering re-entering the race for Wigan winger Charles N'Zogbia, it has been claimed.

According to Metro, the Reds are preparing to reignite their interest in the £9 million-rated 25-year-old, should they miss out on Tottenham speedster Aaron Lennon.

N'Zogbia has been linked with a move to Anfield for a number of months, but appeared to drop down the list of Liverpool targets as the Merseysiders turned their attentions to Ashley Young.

However, after missing out on Young to Manchester United, Liverpool have since been tracking Stewart Downing and, even more recently, Lennon.

Whether or not Liverpool are genuinely pursuing Lennon remains unclear, but the acquisition of more potent wide options is known to be a summer priority for the Reds.


Lennon would certainly provide Liverpool with a more direct option than currently available to Kenny Dalglish, while the 24-year-old is well known to director of football Damien Comolli.

The Frenchman occupied the same position at White Hart Lane when Lennon joined from Leeds in 2005, but is likely to face a difficult task in prising the England international away from Spurs.

Meanwhile, should Liverpool's alleged interest in N'Zogbia come to fruition, then they will face a stern test from Aston Villa, with Alex McLeish determined to sign a replacement for Young.
