Keisuke Honda is reportedly ready to leave CSKA Moscow in the January transfer window with Roy Hodgson’s Liverpool the favourites to land the Japanese international, although Arsenal are also reportedly keen. Rumours also suggest Honda has agreed to join the reds in a verbal agreement. (Sport.co.uk)
This source believes a deal has already been struck and if this is the case then Roy Hodgson has stolen a march on his competitors in the race to sign the Japanese playmaker. Keisuke Honda is a quality player who appears to have not settled in to well at CSKA Moscow, albeit his performances on the field of play have been consistently good.
The £15m rated 24 year old helped his side to a runners up spot and now that the Russian League has come to a close it appears that the former VVV Venlo man is keen on moving to the Premier League and the creative ability he offers would greatly help provide ammunition for the front men at Liverpool, he is also an excellent set piece specialist.
Honda only moved to Moscow last December for a fee believed to be in the region of £8m and given that he is only one year into a four year deal, his value would have significantly increased.
