Liverpool media round-up: Raheem Sterling valuation, Danny Ings offer, Adam Bogdan deal close

Giant Anfield Flag

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

The transfer news surrounding Liverpool overnight has been dominated by the Reds rejecting an offer from Manchester City for Raheem Sterling of around £30 million. 

Sterling won't sign a new contract at the club, and the Liverpool Echo are reporting the Reds value him at closer to £50 million. Manager Brendan Rodgers said towards the end of the season that he expects Sterling to remain at the club as he has two years remaining on his current deal - but if an offer close to their valuation comes in, they may well part with the 20-year-old.

Elsewhere, Liverpool have upped their compensation offer for Danny Ings from £4 million to £6 million, according to the Daily Mirror.

Ings has agreed to join Liverpool from Burnley on July 1 with his contract expiring this month, but given the forward is under 24, the Reds must pay the Clarets a fee in compensation.

The Daily Mail becomes the latest newspaper to report that Liverpool are close to adding another goalkeeper to their ranks in the form of Bolton Wanderers stopper Adam Bogdan on a free transfer.

It is thought the signing will be completed today, and he will provide cover for number one goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

One player expected to leave the Reds this summer is striker Fabio Borini, with a lack of game time making it apparent that he is no longer needed at Anfield.

His agent Marco de Marchi has suggested there are offers on the table for the Italian, who has become frustrated after being unable to make an impression after he rejected offers to move to other Premier League clubs last summer.

De Marchi is quoted in the Daily Mirror as saying: “We are analysing all offers to decide what is best for his future. He is unhappy because he has not played many minutes and that’s not good for his career."
