Not David Villa, nor even Robbie Keane, it seems that LFC has found another attacking option they fancy in David Ngog, 19-year-old French striker. He’ll be coming over from PSG, and apparently all of our scouts are incredibly high on him, to the point that we seem to be putting about £1.5 million into the deal.
It’s expected according to the Echo, that he is going to be incorporated straight into the first team. I would imagine he’ll be taking over the role of Voronin, which I wholeheartedly approve of. It would be nice to see someone backing up the first XI that is under 25 with perhaps a decent amount of potential to build upon. There’s no reason to think he can’t run out with the reserves to keep in shape and turn up for us in those matches the boss sees fit.
Between Nemeth, Pacheco, and now possibly Ngog, it’s clear that Rafa is stocking the club with young strikers that have some impressive ceilings. I don’t think it will hurt for them to train and play behind Torres and hopefully Keane either. Skill + Fitness + Determination = Champion
That said, it’s rumored as it has been for some time that Voronin will be heading to Germany for about 3 million, so we’ll see a bit of a windfall if both these transfers fall into place.
I give it a thumbs up as of now, anyone seen this kid play in the French league for PSG?
