Liverpool transfer news: No apology from Suarez and Downing on the brink

Downing Liverpool

Transfer news from Anfield including Luis Suarez, Stewart Downing, Daniel Agger and Alessandro Matri.

Luis Suarez will not apologise for his recent actions at Liverpool FC. Brendan Rodgers recently intimated that for the Uruguayan to be a part of the first-team plans at Anfield in the future, he would have to apologise for his recent behaviour.

However it Is reported that his relationship with Brendan Rodgers is beyond repair and his position at the club is becoming untenable.

Liverpool have reportedly rejected an offer from Barcelona for recently appointed vice-captain Daniel Agger.

Agger’s agent Per Steffensen stated:

"We are aware that Barcelona have made an offer for Daniel that Liverpool have rejected. Daniel has a contract with Liverpool for the next three years and it would be up to the clubs to agree a fee for his transfer in order for that to change."

There could certainly be one big name exit from Liverpool however today, as Stewart Downing reportedly nears a £6 million exit from Merseyside.

The England international has received no assurances over his first-team position this term, and looks set to be a West Ham United player by the end of the day.

It is reported that he will undergo a medical today before signing a deal for The Hammers. It will see him link up with former team-mate Andy Carroll, with whom he had an infamously unproductive on-field partnership during their tenure together.

Newcastle United were also said to be interested, while Liverpool could subsidise some of Downing’s wages to get the initial move on the go.

Finally, and while Napoli may have been targeting Liverpool players this summer - it looks as if The Reds might be about to steal away one of their major transfer targets.

Alessandro Matri is now being eyed up by Rodgers after missing out on Diego Costa.

Juventus value the player at £10.5 million.
