All of the latest news from Liverpool.

Liverpool could face a fight to keep Pepe Reina at the club. His father has suggested that he would jump at the chance to replace Victor Valdes at Barcelona, with the Barca number one having learnt that his contract will not be renewed after it expires in the summer of 2014.

Liverpool will spend £5 million to land Guillermo Ochoa from Ajaccio if Pepe Reina leaves the club at the end of the season. The Mexican is thought to be keen on a move to the Premier League and TalkSport has reported that Liverpool are looking for a cheap and available alternative.

Liverpool are thought to be in talks to sign Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan. Liverpool are targeting the Brazilian play maker, valued at around £10 million, after a deal to sign Wesley Sneijder from the same club appears to be dead in the water due to excessive wage demands.

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says the £12 million arrival of Daniel Sturridge has revitalised Liverpool. Sturridge signed from Chelsea as soon as the transfer window opened and his dynamism and energy seems to have rubbed off on the rest of the squad as he’s already put in some impressive performances.

Liverpool are thought to be in a battle with Swansea City for 18-year-old Birmingham City winger Nathan Redmond. Redmond has made 27 appearances for the Championship club but their financial situation means he could go if Liverpool make a bid ahead of the Swans.

Steven Gerrard has revealed that he is intent on breaking David Beckham’s England record. Beckham currently holds 115 caps for his country and with Gerrard over the 100 mark, it’s a real possibility as the Liverpool skipper has shown no signs that he wants to retire from international football.

Raheem Sterling has attributed his on field success to Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers. Sterling says Rodgers has helped him develop his game which has enabled him to be a success at the top level of football at the age of just 18-years-old. He has also made his England debut this season.

Steven Gerrard has revealed that Luis Suarez effectively turns into a beast only when he plays football. Gerrard has described the Uruguayan as a quiet family man away from the pitch, letting his emotions get the better of him when he starts to play football which sometimes gets him into trouble.
