A round up of all the news and paper talk involving Liverpool this morning

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge hopes that Luis Suarez stays around the club for a while and has spoken of how much he enjoys his partnership with the Uruguayan.

Sturridge said: ‘We get on well and that’s the most important thing. There is no rivalry there, no hidden agendas. We both go out and work hard to help the team. It’s not about the SAS strikeforce, it’s about the team.

‘Everyone wants Luis to stay at the club. It’s up to Luis to decide what he wants to do. If he believes it’s best for him to move on then that’s the way it’s got to be.

‘But the club, the players and the fans all want him to stay and I’m sure he will.’

Rumours of goalkeeper Pepe Reina departing the club for Barcelona at the end of the season continue to gather pace with some reports indicating he could leave for as little as £4m.

The Spaniard is currently on loan with Napoli, after moving to the Italian side when Liverpool brought in Simon Mignolet from Sunderland.

Liverpool are set to battle it out with Tottenham for the services of Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto – with the 21-year-old commanding a price-tag of £17m according to the Daily Star. The report also suggests that forward Iago Aspas could leave the club in January – after only signing in the summer transfer window.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has given an interview with Bleacher Report where he has talked about the experience of managing Liverpool in detail.

When discussing the demands of the job, Rodgers said: ‘What I do is a privilege, and I enjoy my work. The reason I worked so hard all my life to get into a position such as this because I want to be making big decisions and managing at the very highest level.’
