Liverpool Man Set for £6.5m Serie A Move After Losing Squad Number!

Will the Italian get a last minute reprieve from an Anfield exit?

The Rumour

It looks like left-back Andrea Dossena knows his number is up. His No 2 shirt was handed to £17million new signing Glen Johnson this week.

Italian Dossena, who signed for £7m just a year ago, is a target for Juventus.

The Analysis

After Fabio Aurelio managed to injure himself badly whilst playing with his children it was thought that Andrea Dossena’s exit from Anfield may be delayed but this source seems to suggest that having his squad number handed to Glen Johnson may well be a polite way for Rafa to tell him he is not needed anymore, but I am not so sure.

The Italian left back was pretty poor in his first season but has the ability to improve and he seems keen to keep trying to prove his doubters wrong and the injury to Aurelio means that Andrea will be competing with youngster Emiliano Insua for the first team slot so he may well think he can win that battle.

Benitez may be looking for reenforcements in this area but until he does so I don’t think Liverpool will be selling the former Udinese man quite so quickly.

The Likelihood

Dossena to Juventus: Move may be delayed until January.
