Liverpool send scouts for £7m midfielder signing

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are preparing the ground for a summer move for Rasmus Elm, after sending their top scout to check out the Sweden international, reports the Daily Mirror.

The 24-year-old AZ Alkmaar midfielder has been in scintillating form in the Dutch Eredivisie, scoring 12 goals and chipping in with numerous assists this season.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is keen to further strengthen his squad after the failure of a number of last summer's midfield signings, who have made a slow start to life at Anfield.

Former Director of Football Damien Comolli is understood to have deployed Steve Hitchen to compile a report on Elm - one of the Frenchman's final moves before he was relieved of his Liverpool duties.

After a poor showing in the Premier League this year, with the Reds lying in a lowly eighth position, partly down to a lack of cutting edge in front of goal, the Swede has been identified as a player to help alleviate the burden on the club's current crop of stars.

Elm has made 22 appearances for his country, and with a valuation in the region of £7million, will be well within Liverpool's transfer budget this summer, as Merseyside owners Fenway Sports Group prepare to plough more money to invest in the squad.
