Liverpool and Tottenham linked with a surprise move for Shane Long

It is being reported in Ireland, by the Irish Daily Star, that Liverpool and Tottenham are interested in signing Southampton striker Shane Long.

Long was on the score sheet midweek in the 2-0 win over Watford and has now found himself on the radar of two of the Premier Leagues biggest clubs.

It is a little surprising to be truthful, would never have thought either club would want a player like Long, he is not exactly a marque player, but at least they would be getting an honest player that ries for the full 90 minutes.

However, it is doubtful that Southampton would let the Irishman go this winter, not unless a massive fee is offered and therefore, this one is unlikely to happen.

The Saints boss Ronald Koeman has insisted that none of his current players are available this month, but we will wait and see on this one.
