Simon Kjaer interested in Liverpool transfer

Published 7 Comments

Lille defender Simon Kjaer has hinted that he could complete a move to Liverpool this summer after he insisted that a move to Merseyside would make his family happy. 

As reported by the Mirror, the Danish international, who moved to the Ligue 1 outfit from German side Wolfsburg two years ago, has admitted that his family are Liverpool fans, but he's yet to speak with his representative over any potential move to the club. 

Kjaer has been in impressive form throughout the course of the campaign, and would no doubt make a fine signing for Brendan Rodgers and Co. but it remains to be seen as to whether the club make any movements to try and secure his signature.

One thing's for sure, he's certainly interested in a move to the club, but a transfer appears to be some way off just yet. 

“I have not spoken to my representatives," he told French newspaper Le Figaro. "I want to wait until the end of the season."

"It's not a secret that my family are Liverpool fans, and a move to Liverpool would make my family happy.

"But they support me more than they support anything else, so they are happy where ever I go - as long as I am happy."

It will no doubt make an interesting summer for the 26-year-old, but it's far from certain as to whether he will be able to make family's dream come true. 

Liverpool in need 

There's no doubt about it, Kjaer would prove a fine coup for the Reds, as he'd bring a great deal of experience to their back-line. And Liverpool, despite their recent improvements at the back, are still in need of change in the summer transfer window. 

At least one defender is needed for Brendan Rodgers, whilst it's clear for all to see that he must improve in midfield and attack. Of course, many will expect the club to attempt to replace outgoing captain Steven Gerrard, but there's probably an even more important area for the club's boss to look at. 

At the end of the day, Liverpool have been desperate up front at times this season, with Daniel Sturridge failing to maintain his fitness. Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert, of course, have endured torrid campaigns, so at least two strikers are needed. 

Kjaer would be a start, but many more must follow him to Anfield sooner rather than later as the club go in search of major improvement after a season to forget.
