English giants Liverpool are plotting to complete a massive transfer coup by signing Sulley Muntari by the close of this week, reports in England have claimed.
According to otsnews.co.uk, the Ghanaian international is close to agreeing a deal to join the Merseyside despite renewing his contract with Italian powerhouse AC Milan.
Muntari, who played in the Premier League with Portsmouth and Sunderland, could stage a return to the place where he arguably played the best football of his career.
The news has come as a big surprise to many as Muntari is seen an integral member of the Milan squad ahead of the start of the new season.
The 29-year-old was seen in Formby Saturday night to fuel speculations he could be on his way to Anfield.
He was sent home from the World Cup after allegedly slapping a team official in the face â€“ and threatening members of the coaching staff with a broken bottle.
