Liverpool morning news, Reds track young midfielder, Suso still interests Milan

A selection of the latest stories surrounding Liverpool Football Club this Tuesday morning.

Liverpool are in the hunt for 17-year-old Porto midfielder Ruben Neves according to a report in the Daily Mirror.

The report says scouts have watched the midfielder on three occasions so far this season, who has made 10 appearances for the side, and has been compared to Barcelona star Sergio Busquets.

Serie A champions Juventus are reportedly interested along with several Spanish clubs.

Reported target from the summer Marco Reus said to be the subject of a transfer war according to the Daily Mail, but it looks as if Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich may have stolen a march on the Premier League sides, including Liverpool.

The Mail reports that their chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge will open talks with Borussia Dortmund over the possibility of a deal being struck for the 25-year-old, believed to be for around £20 million.

The Mail is also reporting that Suso is still attracting interest from AC Milan after they picked up on an interview from Gianluca Di Marzio with their CEO Andriano Galliani.

Suso's contract expires at Anfield in the summer, but there has been talk of a possible renewal for the young Spaniard - who is currently sidelined with a groin injury.

Galliani said: "Transfer market? I know where can improve, but I don't tell that to you. Suso? He has an expiring contract and he'll tell us if he wants to move or stay." 

Liverpool face Real Madrid in a crucial Champions League encounter at Anfield on Wednesday night as they look to improve on their most recent outing, where they played poorly but managed to win 3-2 against Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League.

Defender Martin Skrtel is quoted in the Daily Mail saying the side are still targeting three points from the game, saying: "This is what we play for. The Champions League is the best competition in the world because you face the best players in the world. In my eyes, they are the best team in the world so this is a big challenge for us, but we’ll do our best and try to get a good result."
