7 Bosman Deals for Liverpool to consider

Johan Elmander

Gary Megson shelled out £8.2m for Elmander in 2008, making the Swedish striker Bolton’s record signing. Now however, with Elmander attracting interest from the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Fenerbache, Bolton boss Owen Coyle has admitted that the Wanderers will struggle to keep hold of their star player. Coyle recently told The Metro: “When the season ends, we will certainly have one last go at trying to persuade him to sign a new contract… But if there is a club out there in the top bracket that can offer him the lure of Champions League football, then he will do what any player would.”

Although reports have emerged suggesting that Elmander has struggled to adapt to life at Bolton, he has been sporadically brilliant throughout his stay with the Trotters. He was particularly brilliant in the first half of this season, before Daniel Sturridge arrived at the club and took the spotlight away from him. He remains the club’s top-scorer having notched up 10 goals in the Premier League this season – not bad considering he’s been forced to play out wide to accommodate Sturridge.

Where the Swedish International will end up next season is anybody’s guess, but I highly doubt that he’ll remain with Bolton. If there’s genuine interest from the likes of Arsenal and Juventus, they’ll be able to offer Elmander increased wages and Champion’s League football. Whether or not he’s got the quality and ability to make it at a top club, however, remains to be seen.

There was a lot of focus on Elmander earlier on in the season when he was scoring goals for fun but now that those goals of dried up there is not too much interest in the player. The fact that he has Premiership experience and has the ability to score goals bodes well. As a squad player for Liverpool, he would not be a bad addition to come off the bench or fill in when our star strikers or not fit.

    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.
