Liverpool fans are looking rather unimpressed here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro have claimed that yet another player has turned them down – this time Fiorentina’s Giuseppe Rossi.
As one of our punters notes, after losing Luis Saurez and then seeing player after player turn them down, it seems that the Reds and their manager Brendan Rodgers will be waiting a little while longer for their new star man up top.
After enquiring about the availability of the Fiorentina player, Liverpool were turned down flat and were even told by the player’s agent that there would be no chance of a transfer happening this summer.
The former Manchester United players’s agent claimed: “We’re talking about something that does not exist.”
This of course leaves last season’s Premier League runners-up to look for yet another player and with the season now underway, we wonder if it would be better to focus on the resources they already have.
Liverpool fans. Is losing out on the 27-year-old a massive blow or did you think that he was little more than a back-up option? Let us know your thoughts below.
