Liverpool face competition from Newcastle in the race to sign Jeremy Menez, according to reports.

The French international winger is set to leave Roma this summer after clashing with caretake manager Vincenzo Montella, according to The Metro, and the Sunday Sun claimed Toon boss Alan Pardew has sent scouts to watch the coveted 24-year-old.

Damien Comolli, director of football at Anfield, is believed to have highlighted the player as a potential summer addition at Liverpool earlier in the year, with the club looking to add a winger to their ranks.

A plethora of players in the position have been linked, with Ashley Young, Eden Hazard and Charles N'Zogbia just a handful of those mentioned in the same breathe as Liverpool, with manager Kenny Dalglish having money at his disposal to strengthen the Reds squad this summer.

Fenway Sports Group, the Liverpool owners, have vowed to back the manager as he looks to make 'high calibre' additions, with a left back and striker also thought to be on the Merseysiders' agenda.


Newcastle also have money to spend though, with Pardew looking to invest the £35 million made from the sale of Andy Carroll to Liverpool on player additions. A winger is though to be on the St James' Park radar also, and N'Zogbia is another player to be linked with the Magpies as well.

Menez, a former Sochaux and Monaco player, can also play in an advanced position and his versatility has made him one of the most attractive options for a number of clubs across Europe.

Other players to recently be linked with Newcastle include Carlton Cole, Gervinho and Daniel Sturridge.
