7 Bosman Deals for Liverpool to consider

Philippe Mexes

Another player who appears to be on his way to AC Milan is French centre-half Phillipe Mexes. The 29-year-old is currently a Roma player, but with his contract set to expire, it’s believed that he would favour a move to Milan. He’s spent seven years at the Stadio Olimpico and still speaks in fond terms of the club, but has also told the Italian Press: “I don’t think I will be staying at Roma, I will be going elsewhere… AC Milan? There has been a lot of talk about such a move and I will probably go there.”

Why more interest hasn’t been shown by Premier League clubs in acquiring Mexes is beyond me. He’s a genuinely top quality defender, with an expert reading of the game and a great sense of positioning. There aren’t many players of this calibre available for free and he ought to be snapped up as soon as possible. I’m surprised that Arsenal haven’t registered any interest in Mexes, given their French connection and their defensive troubles this season.

If you’re looking for experience, look no further. Mexes made 133 appearances for French side Auxerre and 183 appearances for Roma. Although Mexes has never really been a regular for his national side, he does have 22 international caps for France and has been receiving more playing time under Laurent Blanc’s new regime. If AC Milan haven’t agreed terms already, I wouldn’t be surprised if a number of European clubs attempt to woo the Frenchman in the summer.

Whenever Liverpool are in the market for a center back, the name Mexes always pops up. I finally think that this summer he will make a move to the Premier League. Liverpool are not desperate for squad players at center back as we need a center back who will come straight into the starting eleven and I do not think that Mexes is good enough to start ahead of Carragher or Agger.

    Great analysis.
    I have couple of reommendation.

    David Vaughan of Blackpool (Central Midfielder) will be on bossman this summer . His stats are much better than Lucas , as he ranks no.1 in terms of tackles won at 97 tackle ( 77 % success tackle rate) and his 86% successful passes rate (only behind Chelsea’s Essien 87% ) ranking him 14th with 1304 successful passes .

    Also on bossman is Oscar Wendt , the Swedish LB playing at F.C. Copenhagen and Sweden national team with 14 caps .

  2. no i disaggree with the rumours concerning KLOSE coming to lfc,he’s aging player and the new lfc does’nt want that instead of klose the managers should bring DIEGO FORLAN.
