Liverpool target Adem Ljajic hints at summer transfer

Published Add your comment

Adem Ljajic has hinted that he may have to leave AS Roma this summer in order to get more first team football next season.

The midfielder was a highly coveted when moving from Fiorentina last summer with the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham both interested in acquiring his services.

He eventually chose to become part of Rudi Garcia's Roma side but has since struggled to nail down a place in the first team. Despite appearing 24 times, scoring six goals, Ljajic has admitted that he will sit down with Roma bosses to discuss his future in the summer.

Ljajic told Sky Sport Italia: "I haven't been playing much recently, but football is like that, the coach decides who plays.

"I gave my all and I think it went well. I came here to play, there are five games left, then when the moment arrives to talk, we will sit around a table and see what the best course of action is."

His potential availability would be a massive boost for Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, who is reportedly ready to bid as much as £8.5m to secure the Serbian's signature this summer.

Rodgers will have a huge windfall when Liverpool qualify for the Champions League and is preparing to invest heavily in the squad to prepare for the rigours of competing in Europe's top tier competition.

According to talkSPORT, Manchester United are also keeping a close eye on the situation having come close to signing the 22-year-old in 2011 before pulling out of the deal.

However, with David Moyes preparing for a massive overhaul at Old Trafford this summer, a long list of potential targets has been put together and Ljajic is believed to be one player considered.
