A select round-up of the latest news relating to Liverpool…
Liverpool are finally set to open fresh contract talks with Raheem Sterling according to a report.
Sterling’s current deal does not expire until the summer of 2017, but with his development continuing to impress it is no surprise Brendan Rodgers wants to tie him to the club for the long haul.
Speaking following the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday, in which he scored the opener, the England international said, “I can still compete with the best players around. It’s nice to remind people that although I’m 34, I can still run, I can still play and I can compete with the best players around.”
And finally, Liverpool loanee Divock Origi scored the only goal of the game in Lille’s 1-0 win over Bastia on Saturday.
The Belgian international signed for the Reds in a £10million deal in the summer, but he is spending this season in Ligue 1 and scored a vital goal to help the French side to second in the table.
