Liverpool are set to seal the signing of Bayern Munich midfielder Mark Van Bommel. The experienced performer is weighing up offers after Allianz Arena boss Louis Van Gaal made it clear they would listen to offers for the player who has been told he can leave the club and this has led the Merseyside club to offer somewhere in the region of £2.5m for the 33 year old.
Mark Van Bommel is something of a ‘bruiser’ but no one should underestimate what a quality ‘bruiser’ he is. The Dutch international veteran has been there and done it all. He has won just about everything there is to win in a career that has seen him win major honours at PSV Einhoven, Barcelona and most recently at Bayern Munich, where he helped the club to a domestic double and guided the Bavarian side to the Champions League final last term.
He followed up an excellent club season by becoming an integral part of Holland’s run to the final of the World Cup so there is no denying that the tigerish performer still has a lot in the tank despite his advancing years.
Liverpool will go head to head with AC Milan for Van Bommel’s signature but early indications are that the defensive midfielder is very much interested in moving to the Premier League side. He could add much needed steel to Kenny Dalglish’s somewhat porous midfield and would help in the short term to get the club back on track after an appalling first half of the season.
