Liverpool’s M’Vila Loan Offer Turned Down by Rubin Kazan

Looking good in Red
According to reliable Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Liverpool have had a loan offer for Rubin Kazan defensive midfielder and reported long term target Yann M’Vila knocked back.

As the Reds look to boost a thin squad with reinforcements and keep their Champions League dream alive, but boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that if the right players aren’t available now then the Anfield outfit will be happy to wait until summer. “They have to be available first and foremost” said the Reds manager when asked about his January transfer plans. “If the right player is available not just for now but for the future we will look to do that.” For the time being anyways, it looks like M’Vila falls into the “unavailable” column.

Apparently, Liverpool are in a race with Rafa Benitez’s Napoli side for the signature of the highly rated French midfielder, but according to Sky Italia, the Italians are considering an outright purchase with talks with the Russian side coming in the very near future. As per usual, the players agent is keen to keep his options open and a move to the Premier League, rather than Italy, is his preference.

“I think many players dream of playing in the Premier League – Yann is no different” said agent Werner Baader. “I will not deny there is interest from many European clubs, including English teams. We will see what happens.” M’Vila was famously spotted in the away end when Liverpool met crosstown rivals Everton at the end of November, but the midfielder confirmed he was only visiting with close friend, and Reds defender, Mamadou Sakho.

Although the story goes that the French international has failed to settle in at Rubin Kazan, the 23-year old has made 26 appearances so far this campaign between the league and in Europe for the Russian side and has received a number of plaudits from pundits around the world for his tough-tackling, intelligent football. The Reds have apparently gone in with an initial offer of €2mil to take the midfielder on loan for the remainder of the season, but that seems to be well short of the mark — for now anyways.

    No point singing just anybody. Don’t want or need another Downing and Carroll. I personally think it’s FSG that aren’t giving Rodgers much to spend this January cause he spent over £50m in the summer. Every time I watch Costa play I feel sick, him, Suarez and Sturridge would’ve been even better than City’s attack.

    M’Vila is a player we need, pace and power in front of the back four, allowing Gerrard to push forward again. Of all the players we are linked with he is perfect along with Mohamed Diame!!!.

    Agreed, why not spend on three great players now and get champions league now… and make a strong finish to the BPL.
    if we don’t i fear we might miss out on champions league, because injuries to our thin squad, plus inconsistencies.

    Costa has been an absolute animal; and some people say we’re not trying to sign the right players.

    Diame has been a bit hot and cold for me. He’d certainly improve the squad though…

    Loan is the right way to go in my opinion M’Vila is a risk… her has loads of potential and is very good when he wants to be… but if you look at his whoscored ratings they are really low… I think it is a risk to buy a player who is not playing well now… so a loan is a good idea because if he does not work hard and play as well as we all know he can then we wont have really lost much.
