The Daily Mail suggests that Fulham and Queen’s Park Rangers could be involved in a January tussle for Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore.
The paper’s report claims that the 23 year-old has been made available for transfer after starting just two Tottenham league games this season. Andre-Vilas Boas would prefer that Livermore, who was handed his England debut by Roy Hodgson as a substitute during the friendly victory over Italy last August, left the club initially on loan. Harry Redknapp, who handed the Enfield-born midfielder his senior Spurs debut in March, is understood to be keen to take Livermore to Loftus Road as he attempts to lead QPR out of the relegation zone.
Martin Jol is also keen to strengthen his midfield having been forced to field Chris Baird and Steve Sidwell as a makeshift central midfield partnership for much of the past three months. Tottenham, who took Clint Dempsey and Mousa Dembele to White Hart Lane in the summer transfer, would consider a permanent transfer for Livermore, who has spent time on loan at MK Dons, Crewe, Derby, Ipswich and Leeds already.
