Report: Liverpool-linked Jeremy Menez not in any rush to leave Milan

AC Milan

Jeremy Menez is looking forward to the new season in AC Milan.

Former France international Jeremy Menez was cast aside from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, but he has found solace at AC Milan and his performances have been that impressive The Guardian recently linked him with a move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

However, speaking to Milan’s official TV channel, the 28-year-old forward made it clear he was not planning to leave the Italian outfit at the end of the season:

He said: "My relationship with the team is very good. We are a good group. I think I did some good things, and I do not think I could have done better. I hope that during the coming season, it still gets better because I can improve. I am here, I have heard some things that did not please me but that is part of football."

As well as Liverpool, his former club AS Monaco had been linked with the possibility of bringing Menez back to the principality. It has been an outstanding season for the forward, scoring 16 goals and setting up another four. He has been Milan’s one ray of hope this season and the club’s supporters will be delighted to hear that he plans on staying.

Menez joined Monaco as a 19-year-old after impressing for Sochaux. His return to France after time at Roma was mixed. In 79 appearances, he only managed 14 goals, but impressed with 17 assists.

Linked to both Menez and Ezequiel Lavezzi, per the Express, this summer, it seems that Liverpool are in the market for an experienced attacking player with some versatility. Both moves now look unlikely, so it will be interesting to see who the next Anfield target will be.
