Liverpool youngster set for loan move

Oussama Assaidi (Liverpool)Stoke are plotting a loan move for out-of-favour Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old appears to be surplus to requirements at Anfield, despite only having arrived at the club last summer.

Potters chief Mark Hughes is keen to take advantage of this as he continues his quest to inject some creativity into his inherited squad.

Liverpool are unlikely to stand in the player’s way if he is keen to push for the move, with Brendan Rodgers having already strengthened his attacking options noticeably over the last few months.

Stoke will face competition from a number of sides – including Genoa, Anderlecht and Feyenoord – for the Moroccan, who arrived on Merseyside with a promising reputation.

Despite showing glimpses of his ability in Europa League ties, Rodgers appeared to be unconvinced by the wide-man, and rarely allowed him first-team game time.

Hughes hopes that, given regular action, the pacey winger could develop into a lethal asset for his side.

Meanwhile, Stoke are also tracking Bordeaux striker Henri Saivet.

The Frenchman is thought to be available this summer, and ‘Sparky’ believes that he can offer an alternative to the forwards he currently has at his disposal.

Should Liverpool allow Assaidi to go out on loan?
