Here is Wednesday’s news and gossip concerning Liverpool:
Xabi Alonso could be set for a sensational return to Anfield, after talks over a new deal with Bayern Munich stalled, the Metro report.
The Spaniard is about to enter into the final year of his deal at the Allianz Arena.
Another player reportedly catching Brendan Rodgers’ eye is Paris Saint-Germain full-back Lucas Digne, according to the Metro.
The 22-year-old’s agent admitted that he could leave the Ligue 1 side this summer.
A move for the defender will reportedly be funded by the sales of striker trio Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert, and Fabio Borini, as well as Jose Enrique, the Daily Star report.
The potential departures will also help with the imminent arrival of Christian Benteke.
However, it may not be so easy to shift the flop quartet, as the Metro report that Inter Milan have already turned down the opportunity to resign Balotelli.
Finally, the Reds have missed out on one of their targets, after the Daily Express reported that Barcelona full-back Adriano has agreed a move to Roma.
