Click the arrow to see more Liverpool transfer rumours – The saga of the summer (if it hasn’t bored you to death already) has dragged on far enough, but it seems the winger’s long-proposed move to Manchester City could finally come to fruition. On Saturday, Sterling was named in Liverpool’s 30-man squad for their pre-season tour of Asia, despite the player’s refusal to go. But reports on Sunday morning stated he has now been pulled from the trip, amid suggestions City had submitted a fresh bid. The clubs are thought to have opened formal negotiations over an offer of £45m, with a potential £5m in add-ons, which would undoubtedly see Sterling finally leaving Anfield before the start of the season. Gary Medel – The man to shore up Liverpool’s midfield? Click the arrow to see more Liverpool transfer rumours – Ever since the departures of Xabi Alonso and Javier Mascherano, the Anfield faithful have craved a rugged holding player to boss the Reds’ midfield. Lucas seemed to be that man until injury saw the Brazilian’s form decline and, while Emre Can has shown glimpses of class, the young German has rarely been given the chance to impress in his favoured central role. Step forward former Cardiff star Gary Medel, who is on Liverpool’s radar according to reports in his native Chile. Rodgers is keen on a deal for the defensive midfielder following an impressive, and victorious, Copa America campaign. Despite his key role at Inter Milan, the signing of Monaco’s Geoffrey Kondogbia has put Medel’s future in doubt, and Rodgers is considering a bid to bring the experienced international back to the Premier League. 5 5 ICYMI – Glen Johnson joins Stoke – The England international was allowed to leave Anfield this summer, with the arrival of Nathaniel Clyne bringing his six-year spell as Liverpool’s first-choice right-back to an end.

Click the arrow to see more Liverpool transfer rumours – A number of sources on Sunday claim Liverpool have made a £22m offer for the out-of-favour Real Madrid flyer, as they prepare for Sterling’s exit. The 24-year-old Russia international spent last season on loan at rivals La Liga side Villarreal, scoring seven goals in 40 games, but is deemed surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu. Villarreal are apparently keen to bring him back on loan, but, with new boss Rafa Benitez set to evaluate his squad over pre-season, a straight cash deal from Liverpool could see Los Blancos fold. Javier Hernandez – Reds launch surprise bid to fierce rivals? Read all about it, below, then click the arrow to see more Liverpool transfer rumours – Portuguese newspaper A Bola has suggested the Reds are preparing to make history with the first Man United-Liverpool signing in 51 years. That man was Phil Chisnall, now 72, and it is reported Javier Hernandez could be the next player to make the controversial switch. Having failed to make in impact on loan at Real Madrid, it seems the Mexican is not in Louis van Gaal’s plans at Old Trafford, with Hernandez recently insisting first-team football is his priority, whether that be with United or not. Despite the ongoing pursuit of Christian Benteke, Brendan Rodgers is keen on bolstering his strikeforce with a proven goalscorer and Chicharito, whose United contract expires next summer, could be a bargain. 5 5last_img
