I’m free, says Jovanovic

The 30-year-old winger was signed by Rafa Benitez in the summer of

2010 on a Bosman transfer, but the Spaniard soon left Anfield and

Jovanovic was rarely involved thereafter. He has made just 10

appearances since his move from Standard Liege and now looks set to

depart. Jovanovic has confirmed that he is looking for a new club

and Greek giants Olympiakos are said to be leading the chase. “I

got the paper from Liverpool that I am free to search for a new

club,” he told the Greek media. “Up to now, I still haven’t

received an official offer from Olympiakos, but I am looking

forward to hearing their plans.” Jovanovic could also have options

back in Belgium with Anderlecht and Club Brugge keen, whilst German

clubs Schalke and Stuttgart have also been linked as they tried to

sign him before his move to Anfield. The news that Liverpool have

told Jovanovic he can go will come as little surprise as they are

actively looking for a new left-winger, with Aston Villa’s Stewart

Downing seemingly top of their wish list.
