Liverpool ‘supporter’ Lindstrom reveals he turned down summer move to Anfield

Jesper Lindstrom has revealed that he turned down a move to Liverpool this summer, despite his support for the Merseyside club.

Lindstrom has revealed that he was a transfer target for the Reds this summer as Jurgen Klopp overhauled his midfield options, but the Denmark international rejected the chance of a move to the Premier League in favour of signing for Napoli from Eintracht Frankfurt.


The 23-year-old scored seven goals in the Bundesliga last season to attract interest from across Europe, before signing for Napoli in a deal worth €30m.

Lindstrom has opened up on his decision to turn down Liverpool despite supporting the Reds, admitting the prospect of a more prominent first-team role persuaded him to sign for Napoli this summer.

“It was Liverpool, and I am a Liverpool supporter, so it would’ve been a madly fascinating experience,” Lindstrom said, as per the Daily Express.

“But would it have been an intelligent move? If I don’t play, then I may as well sit in front of the TV and watch them play there while I am at a different club. I am at an age now where I have to play football.

“This is why I think Napoli represents a good change. It is one of the best clubs in the world, and they said I will have many opportunities to play.”
