Liverpool Transfer Rumours: Starlet Deal Confirmed | Ligue 1 Ace Linked
The January transfer window opens in little over a month, so it’s no surprise that rumours of possible activity at Liverpool is increasing by the day. We summarise the recent transfer news involving the Reds:
Liverpool After £6 million Frenchman?
According to reports in France, Liverpool are interested in Benjamin Corgnet, whom plies his trade with newly-promoted Ligue 1 side Dijon. He has been making waves this season with his promoted side notching up 6 goals in 13 appearances, resulting in interest from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea as well as Liverpool.
According to Give Me Football, Liverpool scouts were watching him in action against Bordeaux in Dijon’s 2-0 triumph over the French side. Corgnet managed to net the second goal of the game to secure Dijon’s victory.
Liverpool Take Swedish Wonderkid on Trial
Yes, the future indeed looks bright for Liverpool. Kenny Dalglish is looking happy to expand the youth talent at his disposal, and he thinks that Swedish youngster Gustav Engvall might be just the man, taking him on trial, with a possibility of signing him on a permanent deal at the end of the trial. Engvall told Oestran:
I’m going over there and will train with them in December.
It will be great to see how everything works at a big club and it will be a really good experience whatever happens.
And Other News…
Joe Cole seems likely to prolong his stay with French champions Lille, with him having rediscovered his form with the French side.
Comolli has been monitoring Spanish striker Roberto Soldado to give Liverpool some firepower as they try and push on for that elusive Champions League spot. The hotshot even managed 3 goals in the Champions League on Wednesday, so don’t be surprised to see this one happen in January. His strike-rate this term stands at 10 goals in 16 appearances.
