Liverpool Open Talks For £6m Serbian Attacker

By on June 14, 2012

The summer transfer window is open and Football Talk will bring you all the latest transfer news doing the rounds in the papers. Today, Liverpool are linked with a Juventus winger.

Milos Krasic

Liverpool are in talks to sign Juventus winger Milos Krasic, according to the Mirror.

The report claims that West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been in Italy this week trying to land the 27-year-old on loan next season.

However, it’s said that Juve are only interested in selling the Serbian attacker and that Liverpool are already holding talks over a possible £6m move.

The Italian champions are keen to raise funds to buy a new striker ahead of their return to the Champions League next season, with Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez thought to be high on their wish-list.

Krasic has fallen out of favour in Turin and only made seven appearances in Serie A last term, so a fresh start is almost a certainty this summer as long as Juventus can find a buyer.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is on the look out for a creative wideman, and the former CSKA Moscow ace would fit the bill.

FT Verdict

Krasic seems certain to leave Juve this summer after a disastrous season in Italy, and at £6m he looks like a good buy given his quality and experience.

A move to Liverpool would make sense for both parties, and we can see this one happening in the coming weeks.

    Liverpool should make a deal for a loan and a price to buy later when he proves he can play in the EPL. Then next year say they will only buy him at a much reduced price than the one agreed upon. This is the Italian way of doing business… What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander!

    He’s a lightweight and a toys out the pram kind of player, Adam Johnson surely the smarter option all day long or if money is the issue what about hoillett or kalou???

      Hoileet would cost us as well … although he is out of contract at Blackburn, they are entitled to compensation for his training etc, due to his age, if he leaves to join another English club. He can join a foreign club for free though, so Blackburn would prefer him to go somewhere in England.

    He’s very quick and skilful and for £6m – very cheap!

    Whether he’s suited for the Premier League is a question but i’d like to see him at Anfield.

    Johnson is fantastic but if there is a small budget £15 will be too much to spend on him.

    Rodgers needs to be clever in this window and so far the budget names linked actually excites me..

    Krasic (£6m) Kalou (free) Sigurdsson (£7m) De Jong (£12m)

      Bang on… I’d be pretty pissed if we paid City the kind of money being banded around for Johnson. Lets hope the new setup can identify value talent like Carr at Newcastle, it’s the only way forward, money bags or not.

    Am not that bothered about the kind of names being pursued, but rather their potentials should count a lot. Our new coach had shown that he could perform under low transfer budget and with the kind of talents already in the club, I believe he will add better additions that will propel the pass and move style we want to adopt now.
