Liverpool prepare £3m bid for Tottenham target

Winger Christian Atsu

Liverpool are lining up a £3million bid for Porto winger Christian Atsu.

The Mirror are reporting that the Reds will try and sign the 21-year-old as a replacement for Oussama Assaidi and Stewart Downing. The pair are set to be sold in the summer, and Brendan Rodgers has lined up Atsu to take their place.

The winger has been linked with a move to Tottenham, where he would be reunited with former Porto boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Atsu has a £10million release clause in his contract, but with just one year remaining, Porto know they could lose their man for nothing next year if they reject any offers.

And it seems the Ghanaian ace is keen on a move to the Premier League:

“There are times when we have to think about following our dreams and this is the time to follow my dream.

“Since I started playing football I have dreamt to play in the Premier League. I will be sad to leave Porto but if I leave I would want my future to be in England.”
