Marveaux is a marvel not merely for his ability, but also for his utility. He can play in any number of positions in the midfield, but he’s been primarily utilised by his club Rennes as a left-sided midfielder. Unfortunately for Rennes, their contract with the winger runs out at the end of the season and the club are now resigned to losing the services of the talented 24-year-old.
Sylvain has been developing fast over the last couple of seasons – particularly under the tutorage of Rennes manager Frederic Antonetti. In the 2009/10 season Marveaux made 38 appearances and scored 12 goals – not bad figures at all for a winger. These performances brought with them a lot of attention from the Premier League, with both United and Chelsea showing plenty of interest in the French winger last summer.
He’s struggled this season with injuries, but when he has played he’s demonstrated once more why he’s in such high demand throughout Europe. It’s believed that Liverpool are the Premier League outfit closest to winning Marveaux’s signature and he could well be a wonderful signing for the Reds, should he stay fit.
