Jermaine Defoe to Liverpool speculation grows

Despite Kenny Dalglish telling press yesterday not to expect any transfer deadline day action involving the club, there is growing speculation suggesting Jermaine Defoe is on his way to Merseyside to negotiate personal terms on a deal.

With Tottenham expected to sign Emmanuel Adebayor on a permanent deal, Defoe’s days at White Hart Lane could be numbered and the 29-year-old could be what Liverpool are looking for to bolster attacking options.

Meanwhile, Man City boss Roberto Mancini has denied the specualtion that Liverpool attempted to sign Carlos Tevez in a player-swap deal for Andy Carroll.

Mancini went on to back under-fire Carroll. He said, “Carroll is a good player. He is young. He is strong.”

As ever, all transfer rumours – especially today – need to be taken with a pinch of salt as Twitter goes bazzurk from sightings of players.

Has Lionel Messi been drinking fat frogs in the Raz? Will today see the long awaited return to Anfield of Erik Meijer? Is a Liverpool midfielder on his way to East London in a helicopter?
