Time to cash in on Anfield flop?
Skysports.com understands Birmingham are ready to rekindle their interest in Liverpool’s Ryan Babel.
Birmingham tried to sign Babel during the January transfer window, but failed to agree a deal with Liverpool.
Blues boss Alex McLeish is thought to be a big admirer of the Dutchman and is ready to revive his attempts to lure him to St Andrews.
McLeish has been frustrated in his attempts to sign Wigan winger Charles N’Zogbia and could now turn his attentions to Babel to fill the left-sided midfield role.
Babel’s future at Liverpool looks uncertain with the 23-year-old failing to live up to expectations at Anfield.
Liverpool could be tempted to cash in on Babel to help raise funds for potential new signings for whoever becomes the club’s new manager.(Sky Sports)
Whilst Birmingham City continue to bring in top notch players to St Andrews’ I think it unlikely that Ryan Babel will make the move to Alex McLeish’s impressive midlands side. The Liverpool winger has been a frustrating player during his three seasons since his £11.5m move to Anfield.
Far too often the Dutch international has left many wondering what all the fuss was about, we are after all talking about a player who was considered a great hope for the Dutch international side but who’s undoubted talent has too often been overshadowed by inconsistent performances for both club and country.
Whilst the Merseyside club may indeed choose to offload the former Ajax man it seems more likely his future would lie on the continent and perhaps a move back to Holland is more likely if indeed he is sold.
