Rumour Mill: Liverpool rival Premier League clubs for £50M-rated striker

Montpellier-Olivier-Giroud Liverpool joining the race to sign one of French finest international forward this summer. Arsenal, Newcastle and Bayern Munich has identified the Montpellier striker, Olivier Giroud as a potential transfer target.

However, Giroud has also attracted interest from Arsenal and Newcastle in recent months. Arsene Wenger has reportedly instructed his France-based scout Giles Grimandi to keep a tab on the player's progress.

And Montpellier owner Louis Nicollin dismissed Newcastle's attempts to court the services of his star striker last year declaring the northern club to be "too small" for Giroud.

Liverpool manager, Kenny Dalglish has been searching a strike partner for Luis Suarez to bolster the Reds attacking options. The £35million signing, Andy Carroll has failed to liven up to his expectation at Anfield so far and may leave this summer but on a loan term.

Dalglish and assistant Steve Clarke watched Montpellier’s 1-0 victory at Toulouse on last Friday night and were joined in the stands by Arsenal scout Gilles Grimandi and Bayern Munich’s general manager Christian Nerlinger.

Although there were other players on show that have attracted Liverpool’s interest in the past year, including Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko and Montpellier captain and defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, it is understood Giroud was the focus of Dalglish’s attention.

Giroud is rated at £50million but is understood to have a release clause considerably lower at £13.5million.

The stumbling block though could be his desire to play in the Champions League.

Montpellier should qualify while Liverpool will be in the Europa League.
