Liverpool discussing shock transfer move for former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o

Liverpool want to sign former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o to bolster their attack ahead of the new season.


Eto’o, 33, is currently without a club after his acrimonious exit from Stamford Bridge this summer – and the Telegraph says the Reds board have spoken about bringing him in.

It’s thought that Brendan Rodgers is driving the interest in the veteran striker after failing to find a replacement for Luis Suarez.

Eto’o could be offered a one-year deal to provide cover next season and may even take a wage cut to move to Anfield.
He is currently asking for about £100,000-a-week, a salary that has already seen moves to West Ham and Sunderland collapse, but playing in the Champions League for Liverpool would be a different proposition.

Ajax are also in talks with Eto’o and want a quick answer over a move, meaning Liverpool will have to move this week to get their man.
