Although nothing has been confirmed yet, Liverpool striker David Ngog looks more and more likely to be heading to Bolton Wanderers after both the Liverpool Echo and Daily Post stated that the Frenchman is on the verge of a move to the Reebok stadium.
If the 22 year old does move to Bolton, I think he will depart the club on a pretty good note. He hasn’t always impressed for the Reds, and he could frustrate the life out of you after initially taking a ball down with some good close control, only for him to lose out on a heavy second touch while running with the ball, but he is still learning the game and he may well flourish into an accomplished striker if he is afforded opportunities at Bolton.
Considering Liverpool only paid £1.5million for the player back in 2008, a £4million+ deal with the Trotters 3 years later would be good piece of business from my point of view, as long as the Reds have lined up a good replacement before the end of the transfer window.
Ngog did get his fair share of criticism while at Anfield, not all of it, it must said, justified. The biggest problem he had to overcome was the fact he was thrown in the deep end pretty early on during his time at the club. Only 6 months after his arrival at the club, he became almost immediately Fernando Torres’s direct understudy as Robbie Keane was sold back to Spurs after a brief period at the club, and no money from the deal was reinvested into the club to find a replacement.
