Liverpool news – Liverpool want Moyes, Hiddink ruled out of Liverpool move, Torres to become highest earner

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

Liverpool want Moyes.

The Sunday Express claims that Liverpool are chasing David Moyes to become their new manager. The Scot is currently in charge of fierce local rivals Everton, however Christian Purslow and Kenny Dalglish have reportedly identified Moyes as a potential replacement for Rafael Benitez. Such a move would come as a shock, due to Moyes’ commitment and love for Everton. However, realistically the idea is thought to be impractical, and Liverpool will instead turn to Roy Hodgson according to many other papers.

Torres to become highest earner.

Having revealed yesterday that Chelsea are prepared to beat Man City in the battle to sign Fernando Torres, it has now emerged that the Manchester side are ready to offer the Spaniard over £200,000 a week in wages, in addition to image rights and bonuses according to ESPN. Such an income would put Torres on par with what Cristiano Ronaldo is earning at Real Madrid. However, Torres would instead prefer a move to Chelsea according to other reports, as the London side can offer Champions League football.

Hiddink ruled out of Liverpool move.

The agent of Guus Hiddink has extinguished hopes of his return to the Premier League, by stating that the Dutchman will honour his contract as Turkey boss. Sky Sports claim that Hiddink would not move to Anfield having just taken over as manager of an international team. With Hiddink potentially ruled out, other big-name candidates are reportedly being ignored at Anfield. Slaven Bilic and Frank Rijkaard have not been approached and the latter is likely to honour his contract and remain with Galatasaray for another season.
