Liverpool transfer news, fears eased over Borini, spending to continue after Remy

Fabio Borini

A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Thursday morning.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has eased fears surrounding a shoulder injury that Fabio Borini picked up in a 1-0 defeat in a pre-season friendly against Roma in Boston.

Borini was substituted in the 12th minute of the game, and with the Reds having agreed a £14 million fee with Sunderland for the Italian to leave if he wishes to, there were inevitably thoughts over whether a deal would fall through as a result. 

Rodgers said after the game that the Italian only bruised his shoulder, saying: “He will miss a few days and won't train now for the remainder of our stay in Boston but it will only be a matter of days before he's back training and playing again.

“Regards his future, we will see. He's still a Liverpool player.

“We've obviously had a substantial bid from another Premier League club but at this moment in time it's something he's thinking about with his representatives. In the mean time he's training hard to get fit for Liverpool.”

Loic Remy passed a medical yesterday according to the Daily Mirror with the Frenchman set to become Liverpool's fifth signing of the summer for around £8.5 million, and that he will be officially unveiled today.

The report also says that Javier Manquillo will sign for the club as well from Atletico Madrid on a two-year loan, and the transfer business won't stop there. 

Juventus have reportedly been sounded out over Arturo Vidal, who has also been a target of Manchester United, whilst Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund is also said to be a target.

The Mirror has reported that Liverpool haven't given up on signing Alberto Moreno from Sevilla, but the Liverpool Echo has reported the Reds are trying to sign Ryan Bertrand for £8 million from Chelsea.

But Chelsea do not want to sell, especially given a previous transfer when Daniel Sturridge was sold to Liverpool, and has since proved to be a great success at Anfield.
