Damien Comolli has placed a £8 million price tag on David Ngog, with Liverpool's Director of Football hoping to be rid of the striker in the summer, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Ngog has made only two starts for Liverpool under Kenny Dalglish, and the 22-year-old is chasing more game time as he looks at interest from other clubs.

Comolli reportedly feels that with the possible purchases of Stuart Downing and Charlie Adam, Liverpool need to make as much money as possible from their exits to cover the costs of bring the highly coveted targets into Anfield.


Ngog was purchased for just over £1 million in 2008, from French outfit Paris Saint Germain. While the Frenchman was supposed to be the next star striker for Liverpool, purchases of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in January when Dalglish took over essentially sealed Ngog’s fate.

Comolli reportedly believes that the £8 million price tag represents the work Liverpool have done to turn Ngog from an unknown into an up and coming star.

Newcastle United have shown interest in the youngster, as they look to replace the departed Andy Carroll, and the northern club would certainly have the budget for Ngog with £35 million to play with on the transfer market this summer.
