Liverpool to start bidding


Recommended Posts

Liverpool are reportedly preparing an opening £7m bid for Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic as Kenny Dalglish looks to add striking options to his Anfield squad. The Croatian international has been a big hit in the SPL since his move to Ibrox 16 months ago but Ibrox boss Ally McCoist is said to be resigned to losing the forward this month.

The hard working 26 year old has been a constant threat in the Rangers attack and as well as his good goal-scoring return his link up play and physical stature have helped to create chances for his team-mates. Dalglish is apparently looking for a striking option who can act as a back-up option to keep his first choice strikers Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll on their toes.

Dalglish will apparently steer clear of big money buys that may shake England international Carroll’s confidence, whom despite his shaky first year at Liverpool is still very much a player the Scot values. The need to bring in an alternative option up front has been greatly increased since the Merseyside club have opted to not appeal the eight match ban handed to Suarez.

Jelavic has scored 33 goals in 46 appearances for Rangers, an impressive return even in the context of the SPL, and a number of clubs are said to have taken an interest in the former Rapid Vienna man.

The Croat has spoken directly of Liverpool’s apparent interest in employing his services, stating “Of course it is nice to see your name being linked with that kind of club, Liverpool is a big club and anybody would like to play at Anfield ” he told Slobodna Dalmacija.

Nikica Jelavic is sure to be part of Slaven Bilic’s Euro 2012 squad but currently plays third fiddle to Bayern Munich’s Ivica Olic and Shakhtar Dontesk striker Eduardo. A high profile move this month could greatly assist his chances of becoming a more regular member of Croatia’s starting eleven.

Almost wish it was true. It's only the 4th and I'm already sick of hearing about all these clubs apparently making bids. Enough talk, more action.

Definitely, Liverpool seem to be coming into the equation more than ever now, I think we may see this happening

Hopefully a good amount, i do think he has played his last game

Eck himself said no chance, he is going nowhere and there has been no interest shown but he has heard the Liverpool rumour.

Would be a good signing for Pool.

Well the fee I just saw was £30m which would surely make them sell. Hasn't been amazing for them.

If that is true then it's a fucking disgrace. You could buy someone 10x better for that from Serie A or Bundesliga.
