Liverpool transfer news: Reds and Everton ready to lock horns for QPR midfielder Stephane Mbia
Rivals could go head to head for Cameroonian midfielder
Wednesday 18 June 2014
Liverpool and Everton are both interested in QPR midfielder Stephane Mbia, according to reports.
The Cameroonian midfielder has been impressive during a loan spell at Sevilla, winning the Europa League, and has now reportedly attracted the attention of Inter Milan as well as both Liverpool clubs.
Mbia's QPR contract has now expired, making him a sought-after free transfer, particularly after his excellent season in La Liga.
The 28-year-old made 27 appearances for Sevilla last season, helping them to bring home some continental silverware.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez is reportedly keen on Mbia, with Gareth Barry's contract talks stalling.
Mbia is currently in Brazil with the Cameroon squad and played in their 1-0 defeat to Mexico on Saturday.
He is expected to play in their crucial clash with Croatia, with the loser of that game facing elimination from the tournament.
