PSV Eindhoven’s chief Marcel Brands on Saturday admitted that Liverpool had inquired about Ola Toivonen.
According to a report in the Dutch press, Brands also restated that the Swedish striker is not for sale. PSV is aspiring to win the Eredivisie this season and Toivonen had already played for them in the Europa league which cup-tied him from all European competitions. PSV’s coach Fred Rutten on Friday had also revealed that Toivonen is not for sale.
The Swedish media had earlier reported that Liverpool had made an 11 million euros bid.
Roy Hodgson had admitted last week that he wanted to sign another striker before the summer transfer window ended. With this setback Roy will probably shift his focus back to EPL and try to recruit one of the strikers that had been linked with Liverpool including a return of Peter Crouch (who has not played in Europe) or Manchester City’s Shaun Wright-Phillips.
