Liverpool latest: Including Suarez and Chedjou

All of the latest information, news stories and transfer gossip surrounding Liverpool.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has said he is sure that key striker Luis Suarez is going to stay at the club. Suarez has been tipped with a move away from Anfield following the FA’s decision to ban him for ten games, equipped with the fact he’s not well liked around England.

West Ham United and Liverpool seem to have agreed a deal for Andy Carroll. West Ham are thought to be paying in the region of £12-15 million for the forward, as Brendan Rodgers has made it perfectly clear that the big centre forward has no place in his plans at Anfield.

Lille centre back Aurelien Chedjou has issued a come and get me plea to Liverpool. The defender has suggested he would jump at the chance to play in front of the Kop, after previously being linked with Liverpool’s Premier League rivals Arsenal. He’s said a move to Anfield could be great.

The Guardian has suggested that Brendan Rodgers is considering a bid for Lucas Digne of Lille. Digne was named the best young player in France and has been linked with an Anfield switch several times this year. Rodgers is thought to be keen on providing competition for Jose Enrique at left back.

There are no signs that Xabi Alonso is about to go back on his decision to throw cold water on a return to Liverpool. Brendan Rodgers was reportedly interested in re-signing the midfielder for the club but the Spaniard is now being heavily linked with a move to AC Milan.

Liverpool will not sign FC Twente defender Douglas on a free transfer at the end of the season. TalkSport has suggested that Lazio are ready to strongly challenge Inter Milan’s interest in the defender, which could make it difficult for Liverpool to talk him into a move to Anfield.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani. The forward has 17 league goals in the Belgian league this season but has struggled in his two previous spells at Monaco in France and with Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga which may put the club off.

Liverpool are thought to be mulling over a £6 million bid for Argentinian teenager Luciano Vietto. His agent has described him as ‘one of the best’ and has confirmed that several big European clubs have been scouting him, with Liverpool thought to be one of them.

Former Barcelona goalkeeper Jesus Angoy has suggested that Pepe Reina is not good enough to play for the Spanish giants. His comments will come as music to the ears of several Liverpool fans who may still be fearing a Reina exit to Barcelona at some point this summer.
