Crouch bid rejected?
The Daily Mail Online is reporting that we have had an offer for Peter Crouch rejected by Liverpool...
If true, this would explain why Harry Redknapp had today said that a deal might not happen as much as he wanted it too as Liverpool were 'asking too much' for the England man.
The report says that we 'wanted to pay £7m up front with the rest in extras' - with these extras seeing the final fee rise to a 'reported' £9m.
As we all know Crouch is out of contract next summer, so would be able to arrange a free transfer for that summer in January, or move on right away with the price likely to drop dramatically - but that could be a risky game to play, so if we, or anyone else want him it needs to be now really...
It is no secret that I want him to come back to Fratton, but at the end of the day we have to stick by our guns - if we do not want to pay anymore than x amount, we will not will we.
Although I reckon a straight up offer of £8.5m or thereabout could well do the trick...
Thoughts as ever guys - if we have seen this offer rejected do you think we will improve it or is this deal now dead?
