"But at the moment the first thing is the financial side. We've spoken, but as of yet nothing's been settled."

Earlier this week, Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez described Fowler as Liverpool's best finisher. Despite these claims, the 31-year-old's first-team appearances this season have been limited. What's more, Benitez is believed to be looking to add two new strikers to his catalog next season.

If he was to think about moving, Qatar or Dubai could be an option." Nicol emphasized that the Revs wouldn't put Beckham-money behind securing Fowler's signature. "Because of the type of money David Beckham has got, a lot of people think everybody has that kind of money, which is not the case," he said. "At the present time, speaking to some people we're pretty much miles apart in terms of the financial side." Read the original story...
