Liverpool latest: Cavani interest, Agger's admission and Assaidi stalemate

All the latest news, views and transfer news from Anfield...

Liverpool continue to be linked with attacking talent after the departure of star striker Luis Suarez, and the Reds could look to snap up an international team mate of the Uruguayan after the agent of Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani admitted there had been contact from the Merseyside club.

"There has been much interest in the player during the last six months," said Claudio Anellucci. "I can confirm that Cavani heard proposals from Liverpool and Arsenal. Already said he would love to play in England, but has not yet made a final decision. He is not interested in money and fame; just want to be happy playing football."

Whilst the club continue to look at bringing in more players despite six arrivals already this summer, much of the focus today has been on players leaving Merseyside.

Young defender Brad Smith has joined League One side Swindon Town on loan today, whilst rumours persist over the future of centre back Daniel Agger. The Dane has been linked with a move to Arsenal this week having slipped behind Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho and now new signing Dejan Lovren in the pecking order. As a result, reports today suggest that Agger has told Reds boss Brendan Rodgers that he no longer wants to play for Liverpool.

However, one player who has seen a potential move away from Anfield fizzle out is winger Oussama Assaidi. The Moroccan international spent last season on loan at Stoke City, but Potters boss Mark Hughes says a permanent deal is looking unlikely.

"It's common knowledge Ozzie is somebody we would like to bring into the club, but at the moment that deal has gone cold," Hughes said. "He is one we have chased for a while now, but there hasn't been any real movement on that front, so we will just have to wait and see what the situation is with regards to that deal."

Finally, left back Aly Cissokho, who spent last season on loan at Liverpool from Valencia, could be returning to the Premier League after Aston Villa registered an interest in the Frenchman. Despite Liverpool's need for a left back, Rodgers hasn't rekindled his interest in Cissokho after he failed to impress last term.
