Liverpool are reportedly considering an audacious swoop for Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar. The South African international seems set to run down his Goodison Park contract and Roy Hodgson is readying a move to bring the 28 year old across Merseyside to add more creativity to his Anfield squad.
The under fire manager may well attempt to snap up the former Ajax and Borussia Dortmund man in January when Pienaar would be available for around £4m and if that failed would then attempt to bring him to Liverpool on a free.
Clearly the chances of such a deal succeeding would depend greatly on if Hodgson can steer the club out of it’s nosedive and back up the Premier League table. David Moyes has inferred he would rather let the Johannesburg born star run down his contract rather than accepting a small fee in January and this could lead to a deal being struck in the summer instead.
A number of clubs are Everton’s reigning player of the season with the likes of Tottenham, Inter Milan and Juventus all being linked with Pienaar in recent weeks. Roy Hodgson was also strongly linked with the player during his time at Craven Cottage and Rafa Benitez was also apparently keen on bringing the player in at the end of last season before left the club.
