Filip Djordjevic could move to Anfield if his impressive form continues…
French club Nantes’ Serbian forward Filip Djordjevic wants to move to a bigger club, and could transfer to Liverpool in two seasons’ time, claims French publication Le10 Sport.
The 26-year-old has scored six goals so far this year in Ligue 1, alerting a host of European sides to his goalscoring ability.
“He really plays well, he deserves a bigger club. PSG is too big. There is Marseille, Lille, and Lyon,” said the player’s father.
“Two days ago we talked about maybe Lyon next year and in 2 years with Liverpool,” added one of the player’s representatives.
Liverpool have two of the best strikers in the Premier League right now in Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. However, with manager Brendan Rodgers deploying both up top together, the Reds don’t have a single replacement option from the bench – with Iago Aspas suffering an injury and Fabio Borini shipped out on loan to struggling Sunderland.
Djordjevic could strengthen Rodgers’ striking options, and ease the goal-scoring burden from Liverpool’s two star performers. The Serbian has won seven caps, but is now in the best club form of his life having joined the French club in 2008.
Nantes were promoted last season, and have started this term extremely brightly, currently sitting in fourth place, thanks to Djordjevic’s impressive start.
