Liverpool plotting £7m swoop for Frenchman

Liverpool are gearing up to make a £7 million pound bid for St. Etienne’s French wing wizard Dimitri Payet.

Kenny Dalglish’s men are in need of a top class winger who can provide the service for record signing Andy Carroll, are suggesting Payet is that man.

The recently capped Frenchman has been making waves in Ligue 1 this season and his twelve goals and numerous assists haven’t just caught the attention of Liverpool. Inter Milan, Napoli and Paris SG are also said to be trailing the skilful 24 year old.

Liverpool have been crying out for a natural wide man in recent seasons after the likes of Joe Cole and Maxi Rodriguez have failed to deliver when deployed on the wing. Damien Comolli has in the past ruled out raiding his old club, but his links to St. Etienne may enhance the possibility of the Anfield club brokering a deal.

The former Nantes man has been at St Etienne since 2007, but with a team of Liverpool’s stature homing in on his services, the temptation to test himself in the Premiership will no doubt appeal to Payet. The left sided Payet could be the answer to Liverpool’s search for a top quality winger.
