Reports in today’s Daily Mirror suggest that Newcastle United are keeping tabs on Dirk Kuyt at Liverpool, and may make a Â£8M bid in the summer.
Dirk Kuyt – Newcastle interested in him – hope not
The Dutch striker has had a poor season to date and was recently dropped form the Holland squad, because of his unimpressive form at Liverpool. Kevin Keegan is reportedly interested in offering Liverpool Â£8 million for the 27-year old, but we have no idea if this is true.
Weâ€™d rather see Keegan go after Peter Crouch at Liverpool, even though he would probably cost more than Kuyt.
Kuyt has made 56 appearances for Liverpool and scored 15 goals since joining the Reds from Feyenoord back in 2005, but this season has been disappointing for him, to say the least.
At Feyenoord his record was much better with 83 goals in 122 appearances for the Dutch club, but thereâ€™s a huge difference in class between the Premier and Dutch leagues. From 1998 through 2003 Kuyt played for Utrecht and appeared for them 184 times scoring 66 goals.
Bottom line is weâ€™re not sure Kuyt is good enough, and certainly not for Â£8M.
There just have to be better strikers available than Kuyt in the summer and we should go after them and give Kuyt a miss.
What do you think?
