Liverpool latest: Including De Vrij and Skrtel

All of the latest Liverpool news.

The Daily Mail has revealed that Brendan Rodgers flew to the Netherlands over the weekend to watch Feyenoord captain Stefan De Vrij play. Liverpool have been linked with the highly rated defender who is considered as one of the best defensive prospects in the Eredivisie.

Martin Skrtel says he is prepared to fight for his place at Liverpool but is finding his time at Anfield difficult. Skrtel has been dropped from the team in recent weeks with heavy speculation linking him with a move back to former club Zenit St Petersburg in the summer.

Fabio Borini has dismissed rumours that he is home sick and wants to return to Italy. The striker has been linked with a move back to his home following a frustrating season with Liverpool, which has seen him kept out of the side because of bad injuries to his foot and shoulder.

Guillermo Ochoa is once again being linked with a move to Liverpool. The Ajaccio shot stopper has been linked with several top European sides with Liverpool thought to be in the running to sign him this summer, regardless of whether Pepe Reina leaves the club or not.

Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom has revealed that Jamie Carragher is his main inspiration. Wisdom has suggested that the Liverpool legend is the perfect role model for himself and other youngsters at the club. Carragher is due to retire at the end of the season.

West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long has cast doubt over any possible future move to Liverpool. Long was being heavily linked with the club before the January transfer window with several sources still suggesting a move could happen in the summer.

Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar has suggested Philippe Coutinho can be a massive success at Liverpool. The pair were teammates during their time at Inter Milan and the Brazilian shot stopper has described Coutinho as a ‘golden boy’ who can achieve anything he desires at the club.

Raheem Sterling has revealed that his Mum is ensuring he doesn’t get carried away with life as a professional footballer. Sterling is on a multi-thousand pound per week contract but has admitted his Mum is not letting his new found fame and fortunate go to his head.

Former Zenit St Petersburg captain Vladislav Romanov has lashed out at Luis Suarez, suggesting the striker lacks basic ‘human qualities’. Suarez stamped on the back of a Zenit player during the Europa League match last week as the ball had run out of play, when he could easily have missed the player altogether.
