A round of the latest news stories and transfer rumours about Liverpool from the past 24 hours.
Liverpool target Alexandre Lacazette has hinted that he would be prepared to leave Lyon if the chance to go to a bigger club arose.
“If there really is a club that is interested in me and I cannot advance with Lyon, it will be discussed,” he said.
Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen has revealed that the side never stops striving to achieve the perfect performance. Liverpool have produced some of the best attacking football in Europe so far this season.
“I don't think I've seen a better performance in 20 minutes of football from the first whistle (when Liverpool defeated Arsenal 5-1) - Obviously it's difficult to play to that level all the time, but that's our dream and what we're aiming to do. How clinical we were with the ball and how many chances we created was one thing,” he told Liverpool’s official magazine.
Another midfielder, Suso, has been talking fondly of the club and has revealed that he’d love the chance to be part of the side that plays in the Champions League this season. The 20-year-old has produced some great performances for Almeria on loan in La Liga.
“I’ve been talking with Liverpool, to see if they’re going to renew my contract. Next season they could be playing in the Champions League and I’m really keen to be a part of that,” he’s quoted by the Express.
In transfer news, reports suggest that Brendan Rodgers will not keep left-back Aly Cissokho at the club beyond this season. The 26-year-old Frenchman is currently on loan from Valencia and the latest news indicates Liverpool won’t be making the deal permanent or extending the loan period.
Barcelona have opened up talks over a new deal for Pedro. The 26-year-old is in line for an increase to his wage packet but early reports suggest his buy-out clause won’t increase which currently stands at a staggering £125 million.
On loan Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has hinted that he’d like to experience life in the MLS. Reina is due back at Liverpool at the end of the season but has made it clear he has no plans to stay on at Anfield.
“I would like to try to do something different in the future. Maybe America or something like that,” he told Diario de la Roja.
In other news, Liverpool’s managing director Ian Ayre has revealed the club are on track to meet their financial objectives by the end of the season. Ayre has indicated the plans for a redeveloped Anfield remain on track and has stressed the importance of achieving Champions League football by the end of May.
Former Manchester United defender and Liverpool foe Gary Neville says he doubts Liverpool will win the Premier League title. The England coach was questioned on Twitter over whether he thought Brendan Rodgers’ men would win the title and he played down their chances.
