Zurich striker to snub Sunderland for Liverpool move

FC Zurich striker Admir Mehmedi could make a move to Liverpool in the January transfer window and snub advances from Sunderland, according to The Daily Mail.

The 20 year old has scored 13 goals in 47 matches for the Swiss side and has been targeted by Sunderland boss Steve Bruce for a January signing. Liverpool are looking to snatch Mehmedi away from Sunderland, just like the Black Cats took striker Connor Wickham off the toes of the Reds back in the summer.

Zurich are not prepared to sell Mehmedi cheap and Liverpool are reportedly the frontrunners for the signature of the Swiss international. German side Nuremberg are also interested and their manager Dieter Hecking has spoken of his interest in the 20 year old.

Hecking said: ‘Admir is definitely very young and a very interesting striker. He will certainly not come cheap at any time’.
