Liverpool FC latest transfer rumours & team news roundup

Raheem Sterling dropped for tonight’s Europa clash Liverpool head into tonight’s Europa Cup tie with everything to gain although boss Brendan Rodgers may rest the likes of Steven Gerrard and red-hot Luis Suarez, as he attempts to steal three points from Russian Billionaires Boys Club Anzhi Makhachkala. In preparation for the weekend clash with rivals Chelsea Rodgers has decided to also leave Joe Allen, Nuri Sahin, Daniel Agger, Jose Reina, Glen Johnson and Raheem Sterling out of the squad, instead giving a rare chance to forgotten man Joe Cole. The absence of Raheem Sterling is a highly deliberate move from the Liverpool manager who insists there is no immediate rush for the young winger to set the footballing world alight, but is pleased with his progress so far all the same. The 17-year-old has already earned his first senior call-up as a late replacement for England and Rogers is happy to see Sterling pushing for a place in the national side. “It’s very difficult to hold him back,’ said Rodgers, “This is his dream. I’m sure he wants to play for his country, he has played through the age levels. I’ve always believed if you are good enough, it doesn’t matter how old you are. They say no news is good news, unless you’re talking transfer rumours, in which case it pays to be seen to be busy from Brendan Rogers’ point of view, for ambition and internal squad development if nothing else. So what better than to end today’s Liverpool FCD news roundup on a piece from the Daily Star, which links the Anfield club with Heerenveen star Filip Djuricic, a favourite of Manchester United’s Sir Alex himself. The 20-year-old has been a long-term target for United and has been on their radar ever since his trial spell in 2009, however talks stalled after Djuricic failed to gain a work permit. Now Rodgers is in the driving seat and is believed to be preparing a bid of around £4m for the talented youngster. In addition to scraping Europe’s domestic leagues for a bargain buy the Liverpool boss is also keen on Wigan’s Ali Al-Habsi to solve his goalkeeping conundrum. Wigan manager Roberto Martinez is adamant that the club are not under any pressure to sell Oman international Ali Al-Habsi, which could be a ploy to up the stakes for the shotstopper. “We’re in a good moment financially. We don’t have to sell players and that’s a real strength of ours,” Martinez told reporters. Nov 08,2012 - by Gordon McCrain 0 Raheem Sterling
