Liverpool boss Hodgson joins Wickham transfer battle

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has joined the scramble for Ipswich Town starlet Connor Wickham.

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has joined the scramble for Ipswich Town starlet Connor Wickham.

The People says Hodgson set to ask the Anfield money men to offer Ipswich £8.5 million.

Wickham – an England youth international who helped the Under-17s to the European Championship crown in May – has also been watched by Arsenal's Arsene Wenger and Tottenham's Harry Redknapp.

Hodgson had him watched last season and spoke with his advisors about a move to Fulham. They told him they would hold out to see if one of the Premier League's top six came in ... and now Hodgson is in a position to offer him that move.

Redknapp has had one bid of 5 million pounds rejected by Ipswich, but he is ready to go in again at £8 million. Wenger, too, is ready to make a move.
