Liverpool in Front of Queue to Sign £6m ‘Gladiator’!

The Rumour

White-hot Cruzeiro striker Kleber claims to have an offer on the table from Liverpool.

The 25-year-old Brazilian frontman has been on an absolute tear since returning to his homeland from Dynamo Kiev in February, tallying an astonishing 19 goals in as many games.

It was inevitable that European teams would come knocking again based on his sensational strike-rate, and the Premier League runners-up look to have budged to the front of the queue.

“I have a proposal from Liverpool for 7million euros (£6m). We are analysing [it]” Kleber revealed to SporTV, while being sure to stress that his first choice would be to remain at Belo Horizonte.

“I want to stay,” he insisted.”If Cruzeiro offer the same amount, or we talk, I’d prefer to stay. But we haven’t talked yet”.

The Analysis

Kleber appears to be a very confident man. Holding his current employers who signed him from Dynamo Kiev and Liverpool to ransom, but I doubt very much whether Rafa will pursue this for too much longer.

The striker has indeed been in great form since returning to Brazil but we are still talking about a player who is yet to be capped by his national team at age 25 and also there is some doubting the quality of the national league’s quality hence the need for some clubs to send scouts repeatedly to keep an eye on the players exploits.

I think the players attitude needs to be questioned if these quotes are indeed accurate and I very much doubt whether the Cruzeiro man will get the move he clearly wishes to engineer.

The Likelihood

Kleber to Liverpool: Nope!
