Liverpool Urged To Bid For Jermain Defoe
It has been revealed that Liverpool legend Ronnie Whelan has urged the club to move for Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe.
The 34-year-old has bagged 14 goals in 27 top-flight outings for the Black Cats, who currently sit rock bottom of the Premier League table.
Whelan told the Irish Independent: “I’m sure the lads who were on the transfer committee at Anfield would never have given Defoe a second thought but (Jurgen) Klopp should.
“As a long term investment? No good at all.
“But if the priority is to deliver goals and quickly, he would be well worth the small amount of money needed to get him.”
