Liverpool are ready to make a summer move for Olympique de Marseille midfielder Mathieu Valbuena this summer.
Valbuena is a prolific assist provider, serving up 18 last season with both Marseille and France, and his good work in that area depends on the movement of the forwards around him.
You won’t find a more intelligent front pair in the Premier League than Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, so it is easy to see the attraction for someone like Valbuena to play alongside them given they are likely to make his own job much easier.
Brendan Rodgers is proving to be a coach who genuinely understands how to get the best out of attacking players, and Liverpool’s free-scoring and effective football this season will be a plus point for players like Valbuena considering a move.
