Liverpool are being linked with a £6.5million move fro French striker Nolan Roux. I know many of us do not know much about Roux, let alone heard of him but you can be sure Liverpool’s scouting department know everything there is to know about him especially Damien Comolli. Reports suggest that the 23 year old striker is headed to England this weeks for talk with a new club which is said to be Liverpool.

So what do we know about Roux: He is a 5.11ft striker who is right-footed by can finish well with his left and head. His goal scoring statistics this past season have not been something to ride home about, he managed to score 6 goals in 28 games. But the season before that he helped Brest gain promotion to the top flight by scoring 15 goals in 34 games.

Now for me, Roux is said to be coming in as a replacement for David Ngog. Roux would be filling in as a backup striker for Suarez, Carroll and Kuyt but is this the kind of quality backup we need if we are to challenge for the Top 4 next season? To me, it does not look like we are signing a major upgrade from Ngog.

Below is a video of Nolan Roux so we can see what the player is made of. We would love to hear your thoughts on what you think about him.
