All of the latest news stories and transfer rumours related to Liverpool.
Liverpool remain firm favourites to sign Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo according to sources in Spain. The striker has apparently been overwhelmed with offers since he helped his current club stay in La Liga but he’s thought to have his heart set on a move to Anfield.
Daniel Agger is thought to be the subject of a huge money four-year deal from French side Monaco. The newly promoted top flight club are spending money all over the transfer market, as they look to challenge Paris Saint-Germain for dominance in the top flight of French football.
Stoke City are being tipped to sell goalkeeper Asmir Begovic but only if their £12 million valuation is met. Liverpool are thought to be one of the clubs seriously interested in signing the number one, but the price may be a little too large for the Liverpool board.
The future of goalkeeper Pepe Reina has taken another turn after he suggested he would be open to extending his contract with Liverpool. The Spaniard recently said it would be difficult for him to turn down a move to Barcelona but he appears to have retracted that statement.
Liverpool have been offered fresh hope in the pursuit of David Villa. Reports had emerged that he’d already agreed to join Arsenal but that now appears not to be the case, which means Brendan Rodgers could still try and make a move for him this summer.
The agent of Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo has suggested he could go to Liverpool if the price is right. The forward recently signed a contract extension with the club, but the club’s president has apparently indicated that he could be sold if a club comes in with a good offer.
Reports from Spain suggest Liverpool are close to signing 16-year-old midfielder Pedro Chirivella from Valencia. Manchester City are also thought to be interested but Chirivella is thought to be thrilled by the prospect of playing in Liverpool’s Under-19 side next season.
Newcastle United are reportedly trying to hijack Liverpool’s deal to sign Alex Pearce from Reading. The centre back had been tipped to make the move to Anfield after Reading were relegated but Newcastle are thought to have come in with a bigger offer for him.
Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson says he is raring to go for England at the Under-21 European Championship. Henderson transformed his form towards the back end of last season and can use the tournament as a way to make himself a first choice midfielder for Brendan Rodgers next season.
