Agent denies Jovanovic deal

The agent of Serbian striker Milan Jovanovic has denied that his client has already signed a pre-contract agreement with Liverpool after reports in the British press hinted that Rafael Benitez would snap up the Standard Liege player on a free in the summer.

The Reds are thought to be on the lookout for further attacking recruits having sold Robbie Keane twelve months ago and having offloaded Ukrainian Andrey Voronin during the recent January transfer window. Deemed overly reliant on the goal scoring of Fernando Torres but with a limited budget, it appeared that Jovanovic was the perfect recruit for the Anfield outfit.

With plenty of suitors across Europe, it now looks as though Liverpool have work to do if they are to beat off competition from the likes of AC Milan and Valencia.
"There are many possibilities," Jovanovic's agent Zoran Stojadinovic told Superdeporte.

"The situation will be resolved soon, but he has not signed for any club as yet.
"There is plenty of interest from Spain," added Stojadinovic.
"But there are also a number of clubs from across Europe that remain keen."
Liverpool will be hoping that the likes of David Ngog and Ryan Babel will come to the fore in the final third of the season as the Reds battle to save their Champions League credentials. Already knocked out of this year’s competition, the Merseyside team have stiff competition from the likes of Manchester City, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur for the fourth place position in the Premier League.
