The key transfer rumours plus more involving Liverpool Football Club this Friday morning.
Sterling has made a total of 16 appearances in all competitions for the Reds so far this season, scoring four goals.
The report also indicates that young striker Michael Ngoo is set for a spell on loan at League One’s MK Dons. Ngoo has previously spent time on loan at Championship side Yeovil Town this season, whilst also making four appearances for Liverpool in the under 21 Premier League so far this season.
Away from transfers, Simon Mignolet has warned that Liverpool should not take Oldham Athletic lightly in the FA Cup on Sunday at Anfield.
It will be the third time in as many seasons that the two sides meet, and Liverpool were dumped out of the competition when they were beaten 3-2 by the Latics at Boundary Park last season.
Even though Liverpool’s priority this season may be a return to the Champions League, Mignolet is determined to win every game.
Mignolet is quoted in the Liverpool Echo, saying: ‘I would always watch the FA Cup finals growing up in Belgium. It is a very important competition.
‘It is a big opportunity as you can play at Wembley but that is far ahead of us.
‘The next game is the most important one and before you get to that stage you have to win a lot of games and against Oldham it won’t be an easy game.’
Ex-midfielder Jan Molby has also warned about the potential banana skin that faces Liverpool on Sunday, even if Oldham aren’t in particularly good form.
In his Liverpool Echo column, Molby said: ‘Lee Johnson will have them playing good football and they will come and give it a real go. So Rodgers has got to be really careful and must have enough power in his side to control the game.’
Midfielder Jordan Henderson has been tipped by his former manager Steve Bruce for great things for England ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The Hull City boss is quoted in the Daily Mirror saying: ‘You have to ask if there are many better English midfield players than him right now, with what he is producing.’
