Liverpool star wanted by trio of Premier League clubs


Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is wanted by a trio of Premier League clubs, with West Ham United, Swansea City and Norwich City all interested in a move for the 21-year-old, according to the Daily Mail

The England U21 international has struggled for first-team football at Liverpool over the past three seasons since his move to Anfield from Charlton in the summer of 2010.

He made 20 league appearances last season for Brendan Rodgers' side, but most of these came from the bench, with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson and Lucas Leiva often being preferred in the heart of midfield. 

And with Shelvey looking to break into the England squad for the World Cup in 2014, he will need to be playing regularly at a high level to attract the interest of England boss Roy Hodgson. 

But it seems that all three of the clubs interested in signing Shelvey would be able to offer the midfielder this, as they look for someone of Shelvey's quality to add into their squads for next season. 

As well as being a regular performer in the England U21 side, Shelvey also has experience at senior level, making his debut for Hodgson's side in the 5-0 friendly qualifying victory over San Marino in October 2012. 

Shelvey was also part of the England U21 squad that went to Israel and competed in the European Championships earlier this month, meaning that he will be at high match fitness compared to some players, who will have had over a month's holiday.
