Liverpool transfer news: £18 million for Eriksen, Suarez closer to Arsenal switch

Christian Eriksen

All of the latest transfer stories about Liverpool.

Liverpool are closing in on a deal which would see them poach Christian Eriksen from Serie A giants AC Milan.

Reports have suggested that Liverpool will pay Ajax an £18 million fee for the midfielder, who has been linked with Anfield for several months.

AC Milan were thought to be favourites to land the Dane but Liverpool’s clear and big offer seems to have tipped the balance of the deal in their favour.

The Metro has claimed striker Luis Suarez is very close to agreeing a move to North London side Arsenal.

The Gunners have already seen one bid for the forward rejected with another in the pipeline.

Liverpool are thought to be holding out for a fee of over £50 million, while Arsenal are reportedly readying a second bid for the striker in the region of £40 million.

Liverpool are thought to be close on agreeing a loan deal for Valencia left back Aly Cissokho.

Cissokho has been linked with an Anfield switch for several months as Brendan Rodgers looks for ways to increase the competition for Jose Enrique in the back four.

Liverpool may have to pay an initial loan fee of just under £1 million, which would give them the right to buy the player permanently next summer.
