Liverpool face competition from Premier League rivals Arsenal for the signature of 19-year-old Hamburg midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu according to the Daily Mail. The Turkish player has scored four goals in 15 games and is a regular in the Bundesliga side’s first team.
Brendan Rodgers has seen the 21-year-old as good cover for Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez whilst Celtic boss Neil Lennon has a more regular starting place in his side in mind for Ings.
Gerrard was initially set to be ruled out for six weeks following a hamstring injury he picked up in the 4-1 win over West Ham on Saturday.
But the Mail is reporting that Gerrard could return to action two weeks earlier at a time when Liverpool look short in the middle of the park with Jordan Henderson also likely to be sidelined.
Kelly was a second half substitute during the victory over West Ham at the weekend, and also played 45 minutes for the Under-21’s side in their 3-2 defeat to Bolton.
Kelly said: ‘I’m feeling a lot sharper. I’ve been doing some additional training over the past few weeks and I’m ready to push on.
