£10m target wants Merseyside move over Italy – reports

Arsenal star Gael Clichy is favouring a move to Liverpool, despite interest from Serie A side Roma, according to The Times.

Liverpool have reportedly made an offer of £5 million for Clichy, but Arsenal are hoping for closer to £10 million for the star whose contract expires with the Gunners next summer.


While Roma are ready to offer £7 million – and will sell Mirko Vucinic to fund the deal for Clichy – the Frenchman isn’t convinced that a move to Italy will be best for his career.

Arsene Wenger is reportedly hopeful that Clichy won’t go to Liverpool because they might rival Arsenal for trophies, but with the 25-year-old wanting to stay in England, Wenger may have to accept that the star will head to another club of Arsenal’s caliber.

While Clichy has continually told the press that he wants to stay with Arsenal, and that Liverpool rumours are without merit, his delaying in signing a contract for the Gunners is giving way to speculation that he may in fact be interested in heading to Merseyside.

Roma have flown to London today, according to reports, but Clichy is still hopeful that Liverpool will up their offer to Arsenal in order to take on the left-back and fill a gap that has been a long term problem at Anfield.
