Liverpool will make a surprise approach for AC Milan’s Kevin-Prince Boateng.
The former Portsmouth player transferred to San Siro last summer in a complicated co-ownership deal with Genoa after impressing for Ghana in the 2010 World Cup finals, helping the Black Stars to the quarter finals in South Africa. He has proved popular at Milan with coach Massimiliano Allegri selecting him regularly until he was sidelined with a thigh injury sustained on a mid-season tour of Dubai.
The Reds have monitored his progress and believe he has matured from the erratic player that could be either sublime or ridiculous while at Pompey. Virtuoso displays were often coupled with selfish performances or acts of petulance and his last act on English soil was to miss a crucial penalty in the 2010 FA Cup final against Chelsea when the scores were 0-0 just minutes before Didier Drogba scored the winner for the Londoners.
Still only 23, Boateng has a bright future and one that Liverpool want to be part of but whether Milan would be willing to sell is another matter entirely.
Liverpool are busy drawing up all manner of player wish-lists and potential targets they appear to wish to bring in to help improve their Anfield squad and a move for Kevin-Prince Boateng may well be a wise one, but if the Ghana international likely to want to leave the San Siro just six months after arriving at the Serie A club? Add into the mix that the former Portsmouth and Tottenham man has made over 20 appearances for the Italian giants and the fact that the club is top of the table, and then such a move seems unlikely.
However the recent addition of Antonio Cassano may well affect the regularity of Boateng’s first team starts and a number of other big names signings have been linked with a move to the club which may leave the 23 year old considering his future.
Boateng became very unhappy at Tottenham when left to warm the bench and will not be happy for a similar situation to occur at AC Milan and the prospect of a move back to the Premier League may tempt the one time German Under 21 international.
The adaptable creative midfielder is apparently a player that Liverpool Director of Football Damien Comolli and boss Kenny Dalglish greatly admire and the £10m rated flair player may be the type of player that the Anfield side is looking for as they make plans for the future.
