Liverpool & Everton in battle to sign in-form goal-scoring winger

Liverpool, Everton and Southampton are all in pursuit of in-form Ajax star Anwar El Ghazi according to the Sunday Mirror.

The 20-year-old wide-man broke into the Ajax first-team set-up last term and made 43 appearances in all competitions as Frank De Boer’s side lost their grip on their Eredivisie title to arch rivals PSV Eindhoven.

This season El Ghazi has netted seven goals in six domestic league appearances to help Ajax back to the top of the table and it’s no surprise that his displays have attracted the attention of top Premier League outfits.

Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has sent scouts to monitor El Ghazi and Southampton’s Ronald Koeman is perhaps well placed to make a move for the Dutch based talent whilst Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has a fair few wide attacking options at present.

Rodgers was powerless to prevent want-away England man Raheem Sterling from leaving over the summer but was handed a big transfer budget to help strengthen his Anfield squad though Roberto Firmino, the man best placed to fill the void left by his departure, is yet to really make an impact.
