Liverpool in shock move for former strike ace
Tottenham’s Peter Crouch could be on his way back to Liverpool

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson could make a shock move for former Kop striker Peter Crouch, after Tottenham admitted they would listen to offers for the England ace.

Crouch was a major part of Spurs’ Champions League qualification last season and news of his exit is likely to surprise the 29-year-old.

Redknapp, though, is currently on the lookout for more strikers and believes Crouch is dispensable – if the club receives the right amount of money.

Crouch joined Liverpool in the summer of 2005 for £7million, and it would take a similar amount to prise him away from White Hart Lane.

Redknapp brought Crouch to Southampton when he was manager, before selling him to Liverpool.

The former West Ham boss then made the Reds a profit when he signed the 6′ 7″ man for Portsmouth for £11 million before bringing him to North London for the same amount. (Give Me Football – Official PFA Website)

As a Liverpool fan I really hope this proves to be an accurate and realistic bit of transfer gossip as opposed to complete speculation. I was very much a fan of Peter Crouch’s when he was previously at the club. He was criminally under used by Rafa towards the end of his time at the club. The towering forward still managed a decent scoring record whilst at Anfield netting 40 goals from his 92 starts, which given the nightmare start he had is quite a good ratio.

The 28 year old could be a decent foil for Fernando Torres and clearly Roy Hodgson is the kind of manager who likes to have a physical presence in the box and if indeed Harry Redknapp considers offloading the former Portsmouth man then I think we would do well to make a move for the England international.

He holds the ball up well and always give 100%, so why not?
