Lavezzi agent plays down Liverpool link
Wednesday 06 January 2010
The chances of Ezequiel Lavezzi leaving Napoli and signing for Liverpool this month are extremely unlikely, according to the Argentina international's agent.
Lavezzi was linked with a move to Anfield last summer but there appears to be little chance of a transfer being revived.
"There is interest. But it is impossible for Lavezzi to move as Napoli want a lot of money for the striker, so it will be difficult," said agent Frederic Guerra.
"I don't think a transfer will happen in January."
The 24-year-old has scored 18 goals in 80 appearances for Napoli since joining the club in the summer of 2007.
Meanwhile, Napoli look set to end Andrea Dossena's Anfield nightmare.
The defender's agent claims a deal to take the Liverpool defender to Naples is on the verge of being sealed.
Roberto La Florio told Tuttomercatoweb: "I believe the player will arrive in Napoli on Wednesday.
"At the moment there are logistical problems, that is to say he can't leave Liverpool because of the snow.
"The player will arrive on a permanent basis with a contract for four-and-a-half years."
Dossena moved to Anfield from Udinese for £7million 18 months ago but has struggled to adapt to the Premier League,
