The Daily Mirror is reporting that Liverpool may go after Newcastle’s Senegal striker Demba Ba.
Demba Ba – Liverpool not said to be interested
And in what’s been a long running saga, the Merseyside club may see some value in activating the release clause in Demba Ba’s contract, which is said to be for £7M, and which runs out at the end of this month.
We have no idea if this report is true, since it’s always a story this summer to link Demba Ba with any big club, and we’ve already had a number of these kinds of report, linking other clubs with the Senegal International.
Ba will report back to training on Thursday, and at that time Alan Pardew will sit down with him and learn from the player exactly what he wants to do, and if he wants to seek pastures anew at a club like Liverpool then fine, we should sell him.
And that will mean Newcastle will need to bring in two new strikers this summer, and it seems we are finding it hard enough to get our first choice, 21 year-old Dutchman Luuk de Jong, through the door.
Liverpool could do with a bargain, after over-spending on players in the last Kenny Dalglish reign, and we’re not even going to mention that they paid out £35M to Newcastle for Andy Carroll.
But we only want people who want to stay at the Tyneside club, and if they’re even thinking of moving, that’s what they should do.
