Robbie Fowler to MLS?

There are conflicting reports over Robbie Fowler's future, including his reported switch to Major League Soccer. The 31-year-old Liverpool forward has been continually linked with the MLS and, specifically, the New England Revolution. Fowler and current Revs coach Steve Nicol were teammates at Anfield over a decade ago.

Nicol claims he has talked to Fowler about making the jump to the MLS when his contract expires this summer. "... he's dipping his foot in the water. The problem we have is that, 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." Fowler's agent, George Scott, is now contradicting those reports. "He has not had a conversation with Steve and I don't think they could afford him anyway," Scott told BBC Radio. "If he was to think about moving, Qatar or Dubai could be an option."

Fowler would certainly be welcome in New England and could be a good fit up top with Taylor Twellman. Fowler is fourth on the list of all-time goal scorers in the Premiership.
