Liverpool transfer round-up, goalkeeper scouted as Enrique wants to fight for place

Jose Enrique

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

Liverpool are scouting Australia's number one goalkeeper Matt Ryan according to the Daily Telegraph as they look to solve their goalkeeping issues for the long-term. 

The Reds are unlikely to move for the Bruges' stopper during this month but could move for him in the summer according to the report. Ryan is currently representing Australia at the Asian Cup.

The Telegraph's report also states that Liverpool have been unhappy with Suso undergoing a medical at AC Milan without the club's permission.

The Spaniard has signed a four-year deal to move to the San Siro in the summer but the Reds are open to accepting a fee to release him this month.

Jose Enrique wants to stay and fight for his place at Anfield according to the Liverpool Echo, amid reports he could leave the Reds on loan during this transfer window.

Enrique was linked with a loan move to Crystal Palace yesterday to offer the 28-year-old regular first team football, but the Echo reports he wants to force his way back into the side - with his last start coming against Basel in the Champions League last month. 

Finally, Inter Milan manager has suggested that Brendan Rodgers should be paid double for managing Mario Balotelli, who the Italian managed at both his first spell with Inter, and at Manchester City.

The Liverpool Echo picked up on quotes from Mancini, where he said: 

“As a person I feel a strong affection towards him. He is a good person, someone who acts with his heart.

“I have no clue what his medicine could be, but anyone coaching him should be paid double – a Balotelli indemnity.”
