Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson could make a shock move for former Kop striker Peter Crouch, after Tottenham admitted they would listen to offers for the England ace.

Crouch was a major part of Spurs’ Champions League qualification last season and news of his exit is likely to surprise the 29-year-old.

Redknapp, though, is currently on the lookout for more strikers and believes Crouch is dispensable – if the club receives the right amount of money.

Crouch joined Liverpool in the summer of 2005 for £7million, and it would take a similar amount to prise him away from White Hart Lane.

Redknapp brought Crouch to Southampton when he was manager, before selling him to Liverpool.

The former West Ham boss then made the Reds a profit when he signed the 6' 7" man for Portsmouth for £11 million before bringing him to North London for the same amount.

Hodgson is looking at plenty of players to join his Anfield revolution, having brought Joe Cole and Danny Wilson to Merseyside.

And there could be more English stars making the move up north after the Hammers’ vice-captain Scott Parker was also linked as Javier Mascherano’s replacement.
