Rafa sets his sights on another promising young striker to add to a rapidly-expanding group of talented stars of the future!
Reports in France claim Liverpool have made a bid to lure Paris Saint Germain young striker David Ngog, cousin of Jean-Alain Boumsong.
Ngog, 19, was told last week by head coach Paul Le Guen he can move on subject to a suitable offer be made and it has been claimed that Rafa Benitez has made an offer to sign the Frenchman.
The Reds’ French scout Laurent Viaud, a former Monaco player, is believed to have suggested the club sign the youngster.
The athletic attacker appeared 19 times in the top flight last season, scoring once at Parc des Princes.
Ngog refused to sign a new deal with the capital club and is under contract until 2009. He was not called up to play the friendly with Clermont last Saturday. (Setanta Sports)
Looks like Benitez is continuing to build for the future by adding yet more talent to his rapidly improving collection of young stars. These are players that have either made it through the youth ranks or have been nabbed early on in their development with other clubs. The well-built front man’s career at PSG hasn’t exactly taken off, but that could be down to the French giants huge slump in form in recent years which almost saw the capital’s club being relegated last term. Are Liverpool fans happy with the progress Rafa is making in improving their youth policy?
