This morning we read that Carl Jenkinson is fancied by Liverpool but excuse us if we don’t take it too seriously because it appears in the Mirror who reveal their source as being The Sun!
The story claims that Liverpool are “weighing up” a summer move for the right back – just as they were for Winston Reid of course!!!
The only back up in the story is that former Iron Glen Johnson is set to depart Anfield and that Brendan Rodgers has identified Jenkinson as an ideal replacement and that, they say, is according to the Sun.
However, even were there to be any truth in the story the fact remains that the Hammers are well in front of anyone in the negotiating stakes.
Jenks has admitted publicly and privately that he loves West Ham and it is known he wants to remain in London.
He is seen as a priority target with David Sullivan having a close relationship with his agent and talks will start at around £5 million.
