LIVERPOOL, U.K.—Liverpool F.C. boss Brendan Rodgers is said to be entering talks with the agent of Spartak Moscow striker Yura Movsisyan this weekend with the view of making a move for him on Monday, sports news site CaughtOffside reports.
CaughtOffside understands that Rodgers has secretly been having the 26-year-old watched over the course of the season and has been impressed with his form after bagging 20 goals in just 35 matches for Spartak over the last 18 months.
Movsisyan has also been impressing on the international stage with Armenia, too, and it is there that Rodgers first noticed him while scouting Henrikh Mkhitaryan last summer.
However, Rodgers will have to act fast as he is aware that he is not the only one showing an interest in landing his services as a number of fellow Premier League and Bundesliga clubs are keen, too.
Movsisyan himself knows that his services are in high demand by saying: “I’ve heard there may be some interested teams in England and Germany, let’s see if that is serious or not.”
“I’ve proven I can score goals wherever I have played and I have been lucky to do so again this year with Spartak.
“It wasn’t the season that we wanted but we have a quality group. I’m up for a challenge and always want to test myself against the best.
“If an offer is made for me, I can’t control the outcome. Spartak know my ambition and all parties need to be satisfied.
“Either way, I want success on the field.”
