Liverpool goalkeeper Charles Itandje has revealed he has turned down a move to Galatasaray and is holding out for a switch to Paris Saint Germain.
The Frenchman has been made available for transfer after just one season at Anfield.
The 25-year-old has failed to impress on Merseyside and Reds boss Rafa Benitez is willing to offload him having brought in Brazilian Diego Cavalieri earlier this summer.
Galatasaray agreed a fee with Liverpool for Itandje, but the former Lens custodian has rejected their overtures.
“I refused to join Galatasaray, even if I was very close to leave, because the Champions League challenge was appealing,” Itandje told France Football.
“We reached a very advanced stage during the talks, I even terminated my phone lines.
“But I have other interest in England. Three Premier League clubs are attracted.
“I explained to my coach I wanted to leave to get more first team opportunities. So the club has prepared my departure. We will see what will happens in August.
“I am the solution to PSG’s trouble! Of course there is already a keeper there, but Paris is a club that attracts me a lot, as I was born in the Ile-de-France. (Sky Sports)
Now the first question to Charles would be “who exactly are these three Premier League clubs?”. I can’t imagine who they would be. I am fairly certain that the Frenchman would find it hard to get a first team start at many top-tier clubs. Itandje isn’t THAT bad, but he sure isn’t THAT good either, he inspires very little confidence.
I have been impressed by new signing Cavalieri, who is a step above the former Lens man. I am not sure if he is the solution to PSG’s trouble, but either way Rafa must be hoping that someone decides to take the 25-year-old off his hands! Do Liverpool fans think that Rafa should have offloaded Scott Carson quite so quickly?
