TRANSFER NEWS: Liverpool Close In On £13m ‘Next Vieira’

By on June 26, 2011

French international and Toulouse central midfielder Moussa Sissoko is reportedly in talks with Liverpool over a potential move that could bring the youngster to Anfield.

The highly rated midfielder has drawn comparison to French legend Patrick Vieira who dominated the Premier League midfield while he was at Arsenal. The Les Pitchouns player scored 5 goals in all competitions last season, and has scored a total of 20 goals for Toulouse in the last four years.

The 21-year-old will not be sold on the cheap however because he has 2 years remaining on his deal and reports from Toulouse claim that team president Olivier Sadran has placed a £13.3 million price tag on the French-born holding midfielder. The Reds are also reportedly shopping Raul Meireles for £13.5 million. Coincidence? I beg to differ.

What is your view on this potential signing for Liverpool?

    HELLO!!

    So much rubbish is being said about LFC…They are all on holiday, or playing football somewhere…why all this nonsence…also who they wiil buy and sell!?

    They will all be united at Melwood, the first of July, and then we must see what will happen…Nothing is done, before that, and every player will get his chance in the LFC way…Of course LFC have their ideas, but nothing has been concluded…yet!!

    The summerteam could be;

    Reina – Kelly, Skrtel, Agger, Johnson – Gerrard, Meireles – Henderson, Kuyt, Carroll, Pacheco…Gulacsi – Flanagan, Carragher, Kyrgiakos, Wilson, Robinson -Aquilani, Shelvey, Spearing – Sterling, Cole, Eccleston, N`Goo, Amoo…

    Suarez will be back…let B. Jones, Darby, Degen, Ayala, Aurelio, Mavinga, Koncheski, Lucas, Poulsen, Rodriguez, N`Gog and Jovanovic go…buy Dudek, Riise, Alonso and Robbie Keane back(They know the system and left very critical), get Lennon and Downing…There is a lot of youngters, also playing for England, so everything will be alright…what have LFC done to the media…Everybody is jealous!!

    Jan, Copenhagen

    all these rumors are getting to me!!! Liverpool have been connected with over 50 players.

    All liverpool need are
    a) Left back….Enrique
    b) two wingers…..Downing and Mata
    c) Cen Defender….Zapata.
