Liverpool news – Reds in for Adriano, gerrad wants out after Rafa confirms stay, Juventus return with second Aquilani bid

Every morning A Different League searches the nations press to bring you the latest goings on at Liverpool. Today:

Reds in race for Adriano.

Reports coming out of Italy say that Liverpool have joined Arsenal and Roma in trying to bring former Inter striker Adriano back to Europe. The Brazilian will be available on a free transfer, although his wages are expected to be very significant, and there remain doubts over his state of mind, which saw him leave Inter for a return to first club Flamengo in 2009.

Gerrard runs out of patience at Liverpool.

Club captain Steven Gerrard is ready to leave Liverpool, after finding out that manager Rafa Benitez is set to stay, according to the Daily Mail. It is said that Gerrard has been unhappy with the mistakes made by the Spanish manager this year, and had based his own decision to stay on whether Bentitez would accept a highly talked about role at Inter or Juventus.

Aquilani deal back on the table.

Juventus have made a second approach to sign former Roma midfielder Alverto Aquilani from Liverpool, according to Italian sports daily Corriere dello Sport. It is claimed that Liverpool have already rejected an offer of £11m, but it is thought than an offer of £15m would be too much to refuse for the Anfield club.
