Liverpool transfer news, more speculation surrounding Suarez, club in for Richards?

Suarez Liverpool

A selection of the latest transfer stories and rumours involving Liverpool this Tuesday morning.

There is still more speculation surrounding the future of Luis Suarez with a lot more noise coming from the Spanish media than anywhere else.

Mundo Deportivo are reporting that the main obstacle for Barcelona getting a deal done for Liverpool's Uruguayan star is Real Madrid, rather than the Reds digging their heals in like they did last summer.

There are still no reports to contradict the claims yesterday from the Liverpool Echo that neither Suarez nor any of his representatives have expressed a desire for the player to leave Anfield.

His father-in-law has been quoted saying that he has nothing more to prove in English football, and that he should move to Spain - funnily enough, he lives on the outskirts of Barcelona.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that they will offer Suarez a wage packed of £350,000 a week, and expect and £80 million fee would be enough to land the forward.

It also says that any potential deal with Barcelona could hinge on Alexis Sanchez, who manager Brendan Rodgers is said to be interested in.

Away from the Suarez transfer saga - which shows no signs of going away - the Manchester Evening News has picked up on quotes made by manager Brendan Rodgers, and have said that he is hinted he is ready to make a move for Manchester City defender Micah Richards.

The quotes in the MEN from Rodgers are: “We’re in a position now where we’re going straight into the group stage of the Champions League and we’re going into the Premier League next season with an expectation and a belief that we can win the league.

“We need players that have those qualities.”

In all fairness, these quotes seem to be a general theme and don't centre about interest in any one player.

Finally, the Daily Star has said that Liverpool are set to beat Tottenham to the signing of Southampton defender Dejan Lovren - who handed in a transfer request prior to the World Cup.

The Star cites betting odds, with Liverpool backed in to odds-on favourites to sign the Croatian international.
