Liverpool transfer target signs for Shanghai Shenhua

When the rumour mills reporting that Liverpool FC are to enquired about the possibility of signing Nicolas Anelka on the cheap this January from Chelsea. The Chelsea forward has agreed to join China's Shanghai Shenhua on a weekly salary of around $300,000.

If the deal goes through, the former Arsenal and Real Madrid star will be the biggest name to appear in China's Super League, which is growing in stature despite significant corruption problems that have left several officials facing jail.

Chinese media quoted a report by sports network ESPN saying Anelka had agreed a two-year deal with Shenhua for a weekly salary of just over $300,000, reportedly a marked rise from his $160,000 a week at Chelsea.

Chinese soccer teams are increasingly resorting to buying foreign players in a bid to boost the sport, which people in the Asian nation adore.

In July, Argentine midfielder Dario Conca became China's most expensive signing - and reportedly, one of the world's best paid players - when he inked a $.8 million deal with Guangzhou Evergrande.

When the Super League kicked off in July, there was no title sponsor and state broadcaster CCTV refused to show games on national television.

Shanghai Shenua, 11th in the Chinese league last season, is the latest stop on Anelka's nomadic career, with spells also at Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Turkey's Fenerbahce.

Liverpool considering Chelsea wantaway striker

Liverpool are reportedly considering making a move to sign Chelsea attacker and France international striker, Nicolas Anelka in January. The Frenchman has slapped in a transfer request that boss Andre Villas-Boas has accepted and Anfield director of football Damien Comolli is keen to persuade the 32-year-old to make the move to Merseyside as he could be available for as little as £4million.

Anelka has previously had a successful loan stint at Liverpool back in 2002 after which boss Gerard Houllier opted to make a move to sign El Hadji Diouf instead of the Versailles born adaptable forward.

Dalglish is keen to beef up his attacking options as he looks to secure a place back in the top four and may well feel that a deal to bring Nicolas Anelka to Liverpool could help in that goal. The hugely experienced Chelsea man can play either out wide or as an orthodox striker and may well consider such an offer to return to the side he helped secure a runners-up finish in 2001/02.

Liverpool have had to rely heavily on Luis Suarez for goals and the Uruguayan could do with some effective support after pairings alongside Andy Carroll and Dirk Kuyt fail to bear fruit. Though Dalglish also has Craig Bellamy as a back up option he doesn’t have a great many players to call upon and as a result the club have managed just 17 goals in 13 Premier League matches thus far this season.

Anelka has chosen to put in a transfer request after falling far down the Chelsea pecking order behind the likes of Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Daniel Sturridge. This is despite the fact that he finished last season as the top scorer in all competitions with 16 goals in total.

Though Liverpool have a policy of planning for the future there is also a strong desire to clinch Champions League qualification for next season and a move to bring in such another top notch striker, despite his advancing years, would certainly help in this regard.

The biggest obstacle to such a deal may lie in the fact that Chelsea may not be keen on offering one of their players to a team challenging them for a top four spot, which may lead Liverpool to make a nominal offer of around £4million for a player who will be out of contract in the summer.
