Lavezzi makes Reds claim

08 June 2009 11:42
The agent of Napoli's Ezequiel Lavezzi has claimed Liverpool have made a concrete bid for the Argentine striker. Lavezzi, who has made no secret of his desire to quit the Serie A outfit, has also courted attention from Manchester City. He wrote an open letter to fans last week complaining that the club had shown him a lack of respect. Now agent Eduardo Rossetto has claimed that a move to Anfield is a real possibility, telling Gazzetta dello Sport: "There is a definite proposal from Liverpool. "The one thing I can say, that so far I have kept confidential, is that (Napoli general manager Pierpaolo) Marino met twice with the Fifa agent Pablo Cosentino, who invited him to set a meeting in either Liverpool or Naples with the British club." Asked if the meeting had taken place, Rossetto said: "No. And we do not want to compel Napoli to sell the player. "But I think it is appropriate that the club consider the offer: to judge that it is either sufficient or insufficient."
