Liverpool to Decide on £5m Transfer By Next Week at The Latest

It’s make your mind up time at Anfield!

The Rumour

Sports News - February 09, 2009

Juventus are scouring the transfer market for a quality left-back ahead of next season and press reports suggest the Corso Galileo Ferraris directors are still torn between Italian internationals Fabio Grosso and Andrea Dossena.

The latter would jump at the opportunity to return to Italy after a disappointing season at Liverpool, but the Reds have lost Fabio Aurelio to injury and coach Rafa Benitez has allegedly demanded Juve make their intentions clear as soon as possible.

“I don’t know if you can call it an ultimatum, but I think that Juve will decide what to do within the next week,” agent Roberto La Florio revealed to

The Analysis

Recent reports are a little contradictory when it comes to the future, or lack of, for Liverpool Andrea Dossena at Anfield. Some reports suggest he wants to stick it out on Merseyside and prove his doubters wrong.

Clearly Dossena didn’t have the greatest debut season in the Premier League, he started badly but worked his way back to decent form but clearly Rafa doesn’t feel that the Italian will be first choice and in many ways if Andrea were to move back to Serie A it would be best for all concerned.

Rafa seems keen to get things sorted with players early on in the mid season break so as to avoid any last minute wrangling and if the club were offered the £5m figure that has been banded about then I believe he would take the money without thinking twice.

The Likelihood

Dossena to Juventus: Pretty sure this will happen.
