Liverpool CHASE £8.5m Defensive STARLET

When he isn’t masterminding European success Rafa also has time to consider new signings apparently!

Simon Kjaer’s performances with Palermo have earned him plenty of praise from the media in Italy, resulting in the 19-year-old becoming a hot property on the European transfer market.

Juventus, Milan, and Fiorentina have all been linked with the former FC Midtjylland player this season, and now he has attracted interest from England as well.

Barclays Premier League sides Chelsea and Liverpool are now considering making a proposal for the centre-back, according to tuttomercatoweb.

Currently, Kjaer, who earned his first call-up to the senior Denmark side last month is valued at around €9 million. (

This highly rated centre back is getting his fair share of column inches in the transfer rumour mill world and the teenagers first season in Serie A has gone very well indeed. His solid performances at the heart of the Sicilian club’s defence have earned rave reviews and helped the team to mid table safety and now it appears clubs are sending scouts to watch the 19 year old by the bucketload. Do Liverpool need another centre back, well maybe they do as cover. With Agger continuing to court interest from AC Milan the need for a new signing could become even more pressing. Hyypia isn’t getting any younger but the display last night of the great pairing of Skrtel and Carragher shows that the club doesn’t need anyone urgently!
