EPL club eyeing move for experienced Liverpool midfielder

By | February 18, 2022

Crystal Palace are keen on a summer move for Liverpool star James Milner, according to a report from Fichajes.

While the Reds are exploring targets such as Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, they remain interested in continuing their association with the veteran midfielder but both sides are yet to agree on an extension.

His contract ends this summer, and it could be time he leaves Anfield to further his senior career in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp, in particular, rates Milner highly, although the side are aware of the need to replace James with a younger player at some point.

The star can continue his career in the English top-flight with the Eagles, while Watford are also allegedly interested if he departs Merseyside.

But the Hornets are not guaranteed to stay up in the division for the 2022/23 season, which leaves Patrick Vieira’s side as a realistic destination.

They have been progressing well under the French tactician this term and could do with the useful addition of James in their squad.

The Englishman can bring experience and leadership to the table for the south Londoners, who could be targeting European places next campaign.
