Liverpool shock favourites to land Cesc Fabregas

Liverpool are in pole position in the race for Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas, despite strong interest from both Manchester United and Arsenal, according to the Daily Mail.

The paper claims that the Reds have taken a shock lead in the race for the £30million-rated Spaniard, and have made him one of their top targets as they look to improve their squad with an eye on next season’s Champions League. It’s thought that Barcelona will consent to his departure so long as they receive an adequate sum, and a move back to England appears to be the more preferred option for the former Gunners captain.

For some weeks now Fabregas has been named in connection with a transfer to either United - where it’s said he is high on the agenda for new boss Louis van Gaal - or Arsenal - Arsene Wenger has around £100million to play with - and so it will be discerning for supporters of the respective sides that Liverpool have stolen a march.

The Mail relays how Wenger’s interest in pursuing a deal for Germany star Sven Bender means that his interest in Fabregas has been pushed onto the back burner, and United’s lack of participation in Europe’s premier competition next year opens the door for Brendan Rodgers to perform a smash and grab.

The 27-year-old isn’t the only name on the Reds’ hit-list following an impressive campaign, but with his creative guile and versatility in midfield he’ll certainly be a priority.
