A round up of the latest news and transfer stories about Liverpool.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has told the club’s fans to enjoy Luis Suarez while he’s around. Suarez produced another superb performance as stand in skipper as Liverpool won 5-0 at Tottenham yesterday.
“We’re lucky to have him and we need to enjoy him while he’s here because if he keeps performances up like this, I hate to say it, but the big guns are going to be sniffing which is what we don’t want,” said Gerrard.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has joined Gerrard in piling the praise onto Suarez, suggesting the choice to give him the captaincy against Tottenham was easy based on him doing the role during his time at Ajax.
Suarez’ impact this season has also earned him some renewed admiration from the manager who tried to buy him twice over the summer; Arsene Wenger. Wenger says he dreams of working with the forward as the possibility of Liverpool willingly agreeing to sell the Uruguayan decreases even further.
“Winning the championship is what we are all dreaming of and working towards,” said the Brazilian.
Jordan Henderson is confident that Liverpool can enter the festive season and have a very merry Christmas. Henderson was superb in the win at Tottenham yesterday and says the result gives everyone extra added confidence.
“We have got to go in with a lot of confidence. We've got Cardiff and I'm sure that will be a difficult game, because they have just beaten West Brom at the weekend - then there are a couple of difficult games after that but we'll go into them very confident,” said the midfielder.
In transfer news, Liverpool are one of several clubs linked with a potential move for Hoffenheim winger Kevin Volland. Volland is one of the best prospects in Germany and the Mirror has suggested that Liverpool are one of the interested parties currently taking a look at him.
Liverpool also remain linked with Olympiacos striker Konstantinos Mitroglou. The 25-year-old has scored 22 goals for club and country this season and his manager has admitted that if he maintains his good form, it will be difficult for the Greek side to keep him.
Current Liverpool star Iago Aspas says he isn’t prepared to quite the club so soon after joining. The former Celta Vigo man has struggled to make a big impact at Anfield but says he’s not going to walk away.
“I want to make it at Liverpool. I’m sure the fans will see the best of me soon. I knew I was coming to one of the biggest clubs in Europe to play alongside world-class players,” he told Marca.
