Liverpool transfer media round-up: Fresh bid for Clyne, Manchester City increasingly confident of Sterling deal


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

Liverpool are going to return to Southampton with a fresh bid for right-back Nathaniel Clyne according to a report from the Daily Mirror.

The Reds have apparently already had a £10 million bid for Clyne rejected by the Saints, but the Mirror also claims that Southampton are trying to get the 24-year-old to sign a new contract at St Mary's, with just one year left to run on his current deal.

One of Liverpool's priorities this summer is to sign a new right-back with Glen Johnson leaving the club this summer at the end of his contract. Jon Flanagan is sidelined for a while through a knee injury while Javi Manquillo hasn't really impressed, leading to Emre Can - a central midfielder - being deployed in that role.

The saga surrounding the future of Raheem Sterling is likely to run and run until the summer after Manchester City reportedly had a £30 million bid turned down for the 20-year-old winger. 

The Daily Mail reports that City are increasingly confident of landing Sterling for £40 million despite the Reds valuing him at close to £50 million. 

Manager Brendan Rodgers has previously stated he expects Sterling to honour his contract at Anfield as he has two years left on his current deal, and has reportedly turned down a new contract offer from Liverpool worth £100,000 per week.

Comments that were attributed to his agent have done nothing to suggest Sterling will stay at the club, allegedly saying Sterling would not stay at the club even if he was offered £900,000 per week.
