Liverpool latest: Including Rodgers on Suarez fee

The Kop Sign Outside

All of the latest news and transfer rumours about Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers has said Luis Suarez is worth at least the amount Paris Saint-Germain paid for Edinson Cavani. PSG signed Cavani after triggering his buy out clause of £55 million and Rodgers holds Suarez in the same sort of price bracket as speculation over his future rolls on.

Napoli are readying an offer for Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina. Former boss Rafael Benitez is very keen on adding the Spaniard to the squad of the Serie A giants ahead of the new season and several papers have suggested that an official bid is imminent.

Stories are still lingering that Arsenal are preparing a £40 million second offer for striker Luis Suarez. The Gunners were thought to be preparing a smaller second offer, but Brendan Rodgers says the player is worth around the £55 million mark at the very least.

Liverpool remain linked with 20-year-old Brazilian Bernard of Atletico Mineiro. The Anfield side are thought to be in a battle with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal to get the youngster as they look to add another attacking player to the squad before the start of the season.

Liverpool also remain linked with Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata. The club was connected with reports suggesting a £6 million offer was imminent but the player himself has said he’s looking to work hard and try to force his way into the Real Madrid first team.

Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Valencia full back Aly Cissokho. The 25-year-old admits to learning about new rumours on a daily basis but says he’s thinking of nothing other than preparing for the new season with his current side and helping Valencia.

Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom says he hopes he won’t have to leave the club to get regular first team football. Wisdom has been linked with a loan move to Championship side Wigan Athletic but says he would prefer to play regularly under Brendan Rodgers next season.

Jordan Henderson has piled the praise onto new signing Simon Mignolet. Henderson has described the Belgian as a fantastic goalkeeper. Henderson cites Mignolet’s complete all around game as one of the most impressive things about him, suggesting he could start the season as the club’s number one.

Liverpool have signed a two-year extension with current shirt sponsors Standard Chartered: “We are delighted to announce the extension of our partnership, which shows the belief and continued commitment to the work that we are doing together,” said Liverpool’s chief commercial officer Billy Hogan.
