Liverpool chase new striker ?!?!?!

Liverpool are reportedly after Lazio striker Goran Pandev but the Merseyside club face stiff competition from German giants Bayern Munich. The 24 year old has impressed this season in the Champions League for Lazio and this apparently has caught the eye of Reds boss Rafa Benitez. The Macedonian was supposedly subject of a massive £17 million bid from Portsmouth last summer.

Pandev is contracted to Lazio until 2009 and there’s fears he could invoke FIFA’s Article 17 law next summer to buy himself out of his current deal. Liverpool signed Andriy Voronin and Fernando Torres this summer but Benitez is still said to be keen on bringing another striker to Anfield with Pandev his first choice.

It will be very interesting to see who out of Bayern and Liverpool sign the player. He is a quality player and I personally would love to see him join the Premier League. It is quite clear to see that the player wants to leave because of the suggestion that he may try and buy out his contract so Lazio should try and work out a deal to try and get some money from the player.
