Liverpool Consider £10m Move to Capture Swansea City Forward Michu

Michu Arsenal

Anfield side keen on Liberty Stadium attacker.

Brendan Rodgers will consider a move for Swansea hitman Michu if he misses out on top strike target Daniel Sturridge in January, writes the Sunday People.

The Liverpool manager desperately needs to add firepower to his squad when the transfer window reopens and Sturridge tops his wish-list.

Swans boss Michael Laudrup does not want to lose Michu and on Thursday claimed it would take a £30m bid to change his mind.

But even a more realistic bid of around £10m would represent a fine piece of business for a player who cost £2m just six months ago.

Michu has netted 12 goals already in the Premier League this season and it’s no surprise that a number of sides have taken notice of the Spaniard’s performances and Swansea City may struggle to retain the 26 year old if a ‘bigger’ club comes calling.

Liverpool have very few attacking options and Luis Suarez has manfully led the line thus far this term but Brendan Rodgers knows he needs to bring in alternatives and possible support for the Uruguayan.

Michael Laudrup won the race to capture Michu within the first month of his taking charge of the Liberty Stadium side and clearly the Dane was more than aware of the ability the former Celta Vigo man possessed, having managed both Getafe and Real Mallorca in La Liga prior to moving to South Wales.

The Spaniard may feel that a high-profile move could aid a push for a senior Spanish national team call-up.
