Geremi on summer shopping list?

Last updated : 17 February 2003 By Martyn Elliott

The entirely unsubstantiated reports allege that we will do battle with Juventus to sign the Cameroon international when his loan spell at the Riverside ends, with Real Madrid looking to offload him.

Geremi has proved to be a big hit in the Premiership this season playing either on the right or in the centre of midfield and scoring five times, including a stunning free kick at Anfield.

But other reports claim that we will make another bid for Feyenoord’s Australian international Brett Emerton (who plays in the same position as Geremi), with £3million the figure quoted for the midfielder who is out of contract in the summer.

Nobby Solano may have had a poor season by his high standards, but even so he must be getting a little annoyed by the speculation regarding a replacement arriving in the summer.
