Liverpool latest: Reds mull over Suarez replacements, Aspas reportedly agrees exit

A round up of news stories and transfer rumours about Liverpool from the past 24 hours.

Liverpool are being linked with potential moves for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku and Southampton forward Jay Rodriguez. Both players have been mentioned as potential summer additions to the squad as Brendan Rodgers looks to fill the hole created by Luis Suarez’s exit.

Liverpool are also being linked with a possible move for Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan, with several reports claiming the Reds will splash some of the Suarez cash on a deal for the player, who has been frequently linked with an Anfield move over the last few seasons.

Sky sources have claimed one player the club haven’t enquired about is Swansea City forward Wilfried Bony. Bony has been strongly linked with the club recently, but Sky have suggested that no deal is imminent as no contact has been made between the Premier League clubs.

Liverpool could revitalise a move for left-back Alberto Moreno over the next few days. Talks with Sevilla for the defender could be reignited as part of a discussion over the future of striker Iago Aspas, with the forward tipped to join the La Liga club on loan for this season.

Sevilla based newspaper Estadio Deportivo has even claimed that Aspas has agreed terms with the Spanish club over a transfer, reportedly accepting a reduction on his current wage deal with the Reds.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge says he’s excited by the challenge he faces this season, as the club look to try and maintain a position near the top of the Premier League.

“I am looking forward to the future, as I said before, it is going to be a big deal for me and I am really excited. We missed out on winning the league last season which is kind of hurtful, but we are moving on now and we are looking forward to next season,” he told the club website.

Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe says he’s eager to follow in the footsteps of Raheem Sterling, who was arguably England’s most impressive player at the World Cup in Brazil.

“He's only a year older than me so I need to follow in his footsteps, and watch all of the other attacking players. He's done well and scored a lot of goals. He's working hard all the time in training and impressing the manager,” Ibe told Liverpool’s website.
