Liverpool Revealed Gilberto Silva Interest

Brazilian defensive midfielder Gilberto Silva has been a target of Liverpool and the Merseyside club is currently lining up a bid for the Panathinaikos player.

Roy Hodgson, who would very soon be declared as the new Liverpool manager, is reportedly interested in the 33-year-old who is currently on international duty with Brazil in the World Cup in South Africa. Gilberto Silva could be an effective replacement for Liverpool’s Argentine holding midfielder Javier Mascherano who has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

Gilberto Silva joined the Greek club Panathinaikos in 2008 after ending his highly successful 6-year stint with Arsenal. Silva also served as Arsenal captain during his time at the North London club and represented the Gunners in 170 Premier League matches. His performance for Panathinaikos has also been pretty much impressive over the last couple of seasons.

Gilberto Silva has also been an integral part of Brazil’s starting line up in the ongoing World Cup as he started for Brazil in all the matches so far in the tournament. So, it is no surprise that Hodgson is keen to secure Silva’s service ahead of the next season.

A number of front line Liverpool players are now planning to move away from the club in the summer transfer window amid a financial crisis the club is facing at the moment.
