Liverpool chief shows 'interest' in ex-Pompey midfielder

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are keeping tabs on Lyon midfielder Arnold Mvuemba, according to reports in France.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport quotes the player's agent, Fleury Di Nallo, who claims that Liverpool are tracking his player this month with a view to a potential offer.

Mvuemba is out-of-favour at Lyon, he's made just five Ligue 1 appearances this season.

And the DR Congo international is reportedly attracting interest from the Liverpool chairman - at least according to his agent.

Di Nallo said: "Arnold played at Portsmouth, he even won the Cup and is well known in the English league, where he left good memories.

"The chairman of Liverpool has shown interest and is wondering why Arnold is not playing much with Lyon, and if there was an opportunity to sign [him]."

Mvuemba spent the second half of the 2007-8 season on loan at Portsmouth, before joining the club on a permanent basis the following season.

He spent two full seasons in England before heading back to France, where he impressed enough at Lorient to earn a move to Lyon.

Liverpool are expected to be in the market for new players this month, although it remains to be seen whether this is indeed genuine interest on the part of the Anfield club or another agent using Liverpool's name to sound out interest from elsewhere.
