Liverpool line up bid for Parker

Sunday, August 1, 2010

Scott Parker has been subject to much speculation this summer, with Tottenham not shy in showing their interest in him and already having a big rejected. However, as with Joe Cole, it looks as if Liverpool are going to try and snatch him up before Spurs get the chance.

However, Liverpool will have to work much harder if they are going to land Parker. West Ham have been very firm on their intent to keep Parker at Upton Park, stating they will not let him go ''at any price.''

Roy Hodgson has also been linked with Juventus midfielder Christian Poulsen, making it clear he is looking for someone to fill in for Inter bound Javier Mascherano. Personally I think it would be interesting to see how Parker would settle at Liverpool, especially after his torrid time at Chelsea. As for Poulsen, I watched him at the World Cup and whilst he looked a good player, maybe not good enough for a club like Liverpool.

    I think that Parker would be very well suited to Roy Hodgson's Liverpool side. Since his time at Chelsea Parker has grown as a player and matured into his role and is, in my opinion, of the most under-rated players in the Premiership. He was also unlucky (or perhaps lucky depending how you look at it) to miss out on the World Cup squad. He would fit in perfectly behind Gerrard in a holding position. With the new squad rules, the added home-grown factor will probably inflate Parker's price tag further but I think he would be a wise purchase if Liverpool can prise him away from West Ham.
