From the country that brought us Abba, Volvo and Ikea there comes a young sensation called Ola Toivonen.
At age 24 the young Swede has taken the Dutch league by storm, scoring 24 goals in his 49 appearances for PSV Eindhoven and now he has been linked with L.F.C.. Many newspapers are reporting that Liverpool have tabled a £9 million bid for the Swedish striker. Unless PSV get too greedy and demand much more money I have a feeling that this might actually happen. Good to note the Ola’s number is 7 and it is interesting that Joe Cole’s number was changed after it was originally reported that he was going our new No 7. Maybe Roy already had Ola on his mind? The No 7 was King Kenny’s number and the last few players to wear the number didn’t fulfill the expectation of such a precious shirt. Robbie Keane and Harry Kewell who were the last two players to wear the number both came to Liverpool with high expectations but unfortunately it simply didn’t happen.
So again unless PSV demand a huge fee, my bet is that Ola Toivonen will become Liverpool’s new No 7 before the transfer window closes.
