£17m Liverpool Move Back On For Attacker as Serie A Side Wants to Sell

The Rumour

The agent of Napoli star Ezequiel Lavezzi has hinted a move to Liverpool is on for the Argentine whiz.

“Whether he stays or not depends entirely on Napoli, but I think the club wants to sell him,” said agent Alejandro Mazzoni on Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Napoli did not keep their promises. I have been waiting for a call from (sports director) Pierpaolo Marino since Sunday so we can have a meeting with the President, so it is difficult for us to know what the club wants.

“I want to tell the fans that I have always been ready to come when the director calls and last time we spoke I told him of an important offer from a foreign club.

“The President has not replied, not even when Pocho himself called. I am not an authorised FIFA agent and I cannot talk about this, but what I can say is there was a genuine offer and Marino turned it down.”

He added: “Now there is an important offer on the table for both the player and the club, now I get the feeling Napoli want to sell him.

“I wish to point out that Napoli are very important for Lavezzi, but we are talking about an English club that plays in the Champions League who are offering to treble his wages.

“Football players are not slaves, they are people, and you can buy his contract but not his will.”

The Analysis

It seems speculation linking Lavezzi with a move to Anfield won’t go away and now his agent believes a deal will be struck with ‘an English club’ hotly tipped to be Liverpool.

The only problem area would appear to be the valuation placed on the Napoli player by the club itself of around £17m which is very inflated and probably not something Ezequiel or his representatives would be happy about as clearly this will scare away potential suitors looking to snap up the attacker who can ably play in just about every role in the final third of the field.

The Likelihood

Lavezzi to Liverpool: This looks like becoming more of a reality only if the Serie A side slash their asking price significantly.
