Liverpool transfer news: Suarez 'calls Arteta', £13 million for Papadopoulos

A brief roundup of the latest transfer stories about Liverpool.

Luis Suarez has reportedly called Mikel Arteta for advice on what life is like in London.

The striker is being strongly linked with a move to the Gunners, with Arsenal having had two bids (£30 million and £40 million) rejected already by Liverpool.

Suarez apparently asked the Spanish speaking Arsenal figurehead for advice over which area his family should live in as well as the best schools for his children to attend. If the reports are accurate then it could only be a matter of time before Arsenal submit another bid.

Meanwhile, in more positive news for Liverpool, several reports are suggesting the club will revitalise their interest in FC Schalke defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos.

The Greek star has been linked with a move to Liverpool for several months and the Anfield club are apparently ready to test the water with a £13 million offer for his transfer.

He was previously linked to Chelsea who refused to go anywhere near the £19 million valuation Schalke are thought to have given him.

Liverpool remain strongly linked to left back Lorenzo Melgarejo of Benfica.

News broke yesterday that Liverpool were looking at the defender and the links have been maintained through to this morning.

Liverpool are thought to be keen on adding cover to Jose Enrique at left back, aiming for a season long loan deal with a £9 million clause which will give them the option to sign him next summer.
