A select round-up of the latest news relating to Liverpool…
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be allowed to invest every last penny of Luis Suarez’s £75million transfer fee into the squad if he wishes, according to a report.
It will not be easy to replace the man who played a huge part in Liverpool’s surge up the table last season. However, Rodgers has shown before that he can be smart in the transfer market…and he may now need to be cannier than ever.
The Ivory Coast front-man has been tipped in some quarters to replace Suarez, and the report includes quotes from Swans chairman Hew Jenkins in which he said that he did not think “a club like Liverpool” would negotiate with a player from another club without first getting his current side’s permission.
The paper hints that this quote could suggest that the Reds are indeed interested in Bony and could move for him in due course.
