Liverpool target out-of-favour €3m wing wizard in shock summer swoop

Liverpool are reportedly preparing a summer swoop for Barcelona winger Ibrahim Afellay.

The Dutch wing wizard is out-of-favour at the Nou Camp after joining the La Liga outfit in the summer, and Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is reportedly keen on bringing the player to Anfield.

Afellay was linked with a Liverpool switch in the summer as his PSV Eindhoven contract ran down, but the player moved to Spain instead in a bid to further his career.

However, times have been tough at the Catalan outfit, and talkSPORT claims that Pep Guardiola may be tempted by an offer from the Merseysiders.

Barca landed the player for €3 million, but Liverpool will have to pay more than that to bring the player to the Barclays Premier League.


NESV proved that they are willing to back the manager financially in January, spending £55 million on striker additions at the club in the shape of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll.

Dalglish has hinted that Liverpool will spend again at the end of the season, and the winger who can also play in a secondary striker role could be the ideal purchase.
