Liverpool set to rival Tottenham Hotspur for highly-rated midfielder

Liverpool v Everton - Barclays Premier LeagueLiverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are pondering over the claims Metro have made suggesting Liverpool have initiated talks ahead of a potential transfer offer for Olivier Kemen.

The 18-year-old arrived at current club Newcastle United two seasons ago, but has failed to make a first-team appearance within that time.

But Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been touted to be watching the French midfielder closely and looks to put forward a possible summer bid.

Kemen has also attracted attention from other Premier League clubs to the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino also believed to be lining up a bid to bring the exciting midfielder to White Hart Lane.

There’s a group of Liverpool fans at the bar that don’t quite know what to make of the potential bid, with most of them hoping Brendan will be focusing more on landing a striker!

Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern agrees with what the Liverpool fans are saying, and feel that it is important the Reds concentrate on securing a deal for an established striker this summer, to help bolster their attacking options for next season!
