Yeah not likely is it really, but I suppose it fills the papers.

‘The Metro’ are suggesting that Brendan Rodgers ‘believes’ he can get Andi Weimann on the cheap in the summer with the striker yet to sign an extended contract at the club.

They cite ‘Austrian press’ (without actually quoting anything of any real substance) who claim that Liverpool are ‘unofficially’ being kept in the loop over the negotiations between the club and the player, and they think £5million in the summer would be enough to grab him.

Quite how the Austrian press would know about confidential negotiations or that Liverpool ‘have a leak’ on the player is beyond me, especially as I imagine that isn’t something Liverpool would be happy being said about them given silly things like ‘tapping up’ rules and FA regulations.

And with how professional Andi actually is, I’m not too sure he’d be happy with the insinuation either.

Then again it’s also speculated that he’s turned down three contract offers so far.

My honest opinion. I speculate it’s a load of cow muck.

File it in bin 13 and move on with your lives, because he’ll only be reliably linked with another club in another few days, we’ve had Norwich, Inter and now Liverpool, so anybodies guess who he’ll be linked with next when a paper has some room to fill.

Ouch. Andreas Weimann Linked To Internazionale
