Liverpool Transfer Rumours: Shock Striker Move Lined Up | Defenders Linked
It’s the start of a new era for Liverpool. New signings, brand new optimism, and potentially Bellamy…. oh wait, when did that happen?
Apparently Craig Bellamy might be set for a shock return to Anfield. The Daily Mail and The Guardian have both run the same story claiming that Bellamy is set for a homecoming to Liverpool.
According to The Guardian,
“Bellamy’s wage has surprisingly not deterred several Premier League clubs and Celtic from trying to prise the 32-year-old from the Etihad Stadium but Liverpool are willing to offer the striker a lucrative contract providing no transfer fee is involved.”
Doesn’t make sense to me. Liverpool apparently are set/negotiating to sell Dirk Kuyt to Inter Milan, and I don’t think that Bellamy will cut it at Anfield in his second spell.
And if you guys haven’t heard, our Greek centerback Sotirios Kyrgiakos has moved to the Bundesliga with German outfit Wolfsburg on what seems to be a free transfer, that is, if sources are to be believed.
And there are various different theories as to who might come in as replacement/a first choice centerback. A few mention Gary Cahill (this one especially popular amongst fans on Twitter), some talk about Birmingham City defender Scott Dann and some even mention the possibility of Sebastian Coates signing for the Reds to the extent that he already has a done deal.
The 6ft 6 inch Coates impressed during Uruguay’s victorious Copa America campaign and has been monitored by Manchester City prior to their capture of Stefan Savic. Currently with Nacional, Coates was due to switch to Brazilian side Sao Paulo, only for the Uruguayan side to pull out of the deal when his profile, and price, increased.
And lastly, Mick McCarthy, Wolverhapton manager has declared that Liverpool target Kevin Doyle is firmly NOT for sale in this summer transfer window.
Well, so that’s it for today, come back tomorrow for more!
