Nicol: Lille target 'doesn't look like a Liverpool player'

Barely a few days after he finally said something that made sense, when he commented that Liverpool simply had to sign Bruno Fernandes, he goes and ruins it all.

Quotes from Nicol from ESPN FC earlier this week show how little he really knows about the current Liverpool manager and squad.

He said: "I really don’t get this one.

"Yes he’s had a good season but he just doesn’t look like a Liverpool player to me.

"He’s a little unorthodox, he looks gangly. He has got it done, the stats bear that out. Unfortunately it is Ligue 1 and I’m not a huge fan of Ligue 1, I don’t think the standard is particularly great.

"Before the season kicks off we know PSG have won the league. I’m not sure of this. I’m not sure where it’s coming from to be honest but I don’t think this guy fits in with Liverpool."

The Reds have been linked with the Lille winger constantly since the back-end of last season and it's been updated on on an almost daily basis.

Whether the club are actually interested in the player remains to be seen, but it's highly unlikely the rumours would be so strong if he hadn't been looked at, at least.

But leave it to Stevie Nicol to show that he knows best. One thing's for sure, Jurgen won't be taking any advice from the Anfield great on transfers, and for that we can be very thankful.
