Remy Cabella

Remy Cabella

Montpellier star Remy Cabella has more commonly been linked with Newcastle, but young in age, high in potential and a versatile attacker, the Ligue 1 starlet would be a good fit for the Anfield roster.

The 23 year-old is amid a sensational campaign, that’s seen him claim ten goals and five assists in 24 league starts, and claim eight man of the match awards (awarded by whoscored.com). He’s furthermore averaged an impressive 2 tackles, 2.7 shots, 2.4 key passes and 1.4 accurate crosses per match.

The former France U21’s favoured role is as a No.10, but he’s featured on both flanks and as a striker this season and produced decent output in all positions.

Pushing for a place in the France seniors ahead of the 2014 World Cup, Cabella comes highly-rated, and is known to have attracted the transfer attentions of Manchester United in the past.

Resultantly however, Montpellier remain incredibly reluctant to sell; President Louis Nicollin landed him with a slapstick £86million price-tag earlier in the season, in parody of Gareth Bale’s summer move to Real Madrid.

A valuation around the £12million mark seems more likely, but having lost Yohan Cabaye to PSG in January, Cabella has been lined up as an ideal replacement by the Magpies.
