Jenks in dubious Liverpool link


JenkdownThis really must be a first!

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.

    If you believe the papers Liverpool will need to buy a whole new team with the amount of players that are leaving them,
    Its Arsenal or his agent trying to drive up the price and the 2 Daves are not stupid where money is involved ( well they pay BFS far to much )
    He has found a home here and could make the England team alongside Cresswell if he uses his brain,Wenger does not rate him and who wants to live in Liverpool ?
    Come to where you are wanted and become a Legend in the new stadium with our new manager in 3 years time you can give Wenger the finger.
