Borussia Dortmund have seemingly entered the race to sign Ajax midfielder Cristian Eriksen. The play maker has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool but Dortmund’s interest could have the beneficial effect of allowing Liverpool to go after a more needed player in another area.

A deal for Porto forward Jackson Martinez could still be on the cards after the Colombian striker rejected a move to Russian football. Liverpool are reportedly one of the teams taking a look at him and he could now be open to a move into the Premier League.

Fresh media reports from Spain have suggested that Barcelona are still interested in signing Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina. Reina has dismissed speculation for much of the season, but Catalan press sources insist the Spanish giants will make a move for him to replace Victor Valdes.

Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has insisted the central combination of Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel is the best in the Premier League. The pair have shared a long and lasting relationship at Liverpool and they could form the spine of Brendan Rodgers’ team next season.

Liverpool are thought to be well in the race to sign Victor Wanyama from Celtic this summer. Reports suggest the Scottish champions are going to try and scare off any team interested in him with a £25 million valuation, but Liverpool are thought to be maintaining their interest.

Liverpool are thought to be one of the clubs tracking the progress of Barcelona youngster Cristian Tello. It is thought that Brendan Rodgers’ side are thinking of making a move for the young forward, but face heavy competition from Tottenham Hotspur.

Daniel Agger has pledged his future to Liverpool, ending speculation that he could join Barcelona at the end of the season. The centre back had also been tipped for early retirement, which are rumours he has since dismissed insisting he is fully committed to the club.
