Liverpool latest: Including Cole and Sahin

Anfield Kop

All of the latest news coming out of Liverpool.

The agent of Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez has ruled out an approach from Liverpool for the player. His agent said that the player has no desire to, and will not be leaving Barcelona any time soon and will fight for his place in the side at the Nou Camp.

Liverpool full back Jose Enrique says he would jump at the chance to try and convince Andres Iniesta to join Liverpool from Barcelona. Enrique made the comments while being quizzed for the club’s website and said Iniesta is the one player he would love to help join Liverpool.

An attempt to overturn the original Hillsborough inquest verdicts will be heard on December 19. The Attorney General is trying to overturn the original verdicts as a greater sense of justice over the lost lives of 96 Liverpool fans continues to be sought for.

Brendan Rodgers is on the verge of agreeing a double swoop for Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge and Blackpool midfielder Thomas Ince. Both players have been previously linked with Liverpool but fresh reports have suggested deals are imminent and ready to go through when the January window opens.

Liverpool have been given fresh hope of signing Spanish striker Fernando Llorente. Llorente has said he has not agreed to join Juventus from Atheltic Bilbao which means the door is still open for Liverpool to come in and try to sign the tall centre forward.

The chief executive of Borussia Dortmund Hans-Joachim Watzke has cast doubt over Mario Gotze joining Liverpool. He has suggested that a move to Anfield from the German champions would be a step down for the centre forward and not what a player of his calibre deserves.

Brendan Rodgers has stated that he will leave Joe Cole to decide on his own future. Cole has vowed to stay and fight for his place at Anfield but Rodgers has reiterated recent comments that Cole cannot expect a regular place in the team while he is manager of the club.

Midfielder Nuri Sahin says the only reason he joined Liverpool is due to the way Brendan Rodgers promised the club would play football. Sahin has failed to hold down a regular first team place at the club because he is finding it difficult to adjust to Premier League football.
