Liverpool ready to join Tottenham in raid on West Ham
Liverpool are preparing to challenge Tottenham Hotspur for the signature of West Ham midfielder Scott Parker.
Roy Hodgson has been promised some funds to strengthen the Liverpool squad this winter and Parker is on the wish list for the Anfield boss, however they will face stiff competition for Parker’s signature from Harry Redknapp’s Tottenham who have long been interested in signing the West Ham midfielder.
The fact that Parker has extended his contract at West Ham seems to make no difference to the Liverpool and Tottenham bosses and who can blame them with West Ham looking Championship bound they have probably figured that the West Ham owners will try and cash in on Parker as soon as they can.
West Ham though have apparently slapped a £20 Million price tag on Parker and it is hard to see how Liverpool can pay that sort of cash out even if the new owners are making funds available, Tottenham can afford it, that is not open to debate, but Liverpool is very questionable. (Footylatest)
Clearly West Ham’s valuation is more than a tad inflated and the east London side may find themselves accepting less if Scott Parker forces their hand and demands a move. The England international is hoping to get himself back in the national team picture and whilst the Hammers have had a poor start to the season the 30 year old has himself been playing very well.
Roy Hodgson appears to like the never say die attitude that Parker possesses but will probably only be willing to offer half the amount West Ham are after. Harry Redknapp is also keen to sign the former Chelsea and Newcastle United man.
