Liverpool transfer news, Reds may end Moreno pursuit, two other left-backs linked

Alberto Moreno playing for Sevilla

A selection of the latest transfer news and more involving Liverpool Football Club this Tuesday morning.

The transfer news involving Liverpool this morning seems to revolve around their pursuit of Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno, with two reports suggesting they could pull out of any deal for the 21-year-old.

The Daily Mail says a move to Anfield appears to have hit the rocks, and the Reds could revive their interest in Ricardo Rodriguez from Wolfsburg, who played a part in Switzerland's win in their opening Group E match at the World Cup, where they overcame Ecuador 2-1.

The report suggests that Sevilla have upped their asking price for Moreno to around £20 million. This is also reflected in the report in the Daily Mirror, who have said Liverpool only want to pay around £13.5 million, and will turn their attentions to Marcos Rojo of Sporting Lisbon instead - who is currently playing for Argentina in Brazil this summer.

Away from transfers and a lot of the focus surrounding Liverpool players at the World Cup is revolving around the crucial Group D clash between Uruguay and England in Sao Paulo on Thursday evening with the strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge on opposite sides.

Suarez has been in a race to be fit for this game but it is widely reported he will be ready to start against England as Uruguay look to bounce back from their disappointing opening defeat against Costa Rica. 

He's quoted in The Guardian, saying: "I haven’t missed a day of recovery time and I’m 100% fit, otherwise I wouldn’t be here. I’m training with the team again and I feel in good condition. I never lost the joy and the desire and I never thought I was going to lose out on playing in the World Cup because of injury."

Daniel Sturridge is also quoted in The Guardian saying he will do anything in his power to ensure that England win this crucial game.

He said: "It’s do or die. It’s a World Cup. It means everything. Do we want to go home? No, we don’t want to go home. I want to win this World Cup. I’d be gutted to go home early. I’d be devastated. So I’m being totally honest here. I’m not saying I’m going to dive or do anything that’s not within the laws of the game, but I will do anything to help get a result.”
