REPORTS: Liverpool’s Marveaux Deal Thrown In To Serious Doubt

By on June 18, 2011

Yesterday it looked like Liverpool were finally set to sign French winger Sylvain Marveaux from French League 1 side Rennes on a free transfer. However, reports today of a failed medical have thrown the deal in to doubt.

Marveaux has been a long term target for Liverpool and even watched the Reds in action before Christmas last year. A deal never materialised in January but Liverpool have moved quicly to try and secure his services this summer and a deal looked on the cards as he arrived at Anfiled yesterday to undergo a medical.

However, reports in France claim the player has failed the medical due to a groin injury that hampered him last season, which puts the deal in serious doubt.
