Liverpool eye move for Barcelona striker Villa

Reports in Spain suggest that Barcelona striker David Villa could be on his way to Liverpool.

Spanish radio station Cadena SER claimed that the Merseyside club made initial contact with Villa’s agent about a deal.

In addition, Barcelona based newspaper Sport reported that Liverpool were looking to the ex-Valencia striker as a partner for Luis Suarez, as the club’s current strikers have failed to impress this season.

Villa has also been subject of rumours of a falling out with teammate Lionel Messi, although Pep Guardiola has rejected these reports: “It is impossible to be an enemy of David, he is too nice a person. He is generous both in the way he plays football and also in his personal life. It is impossible not to get on well with him.’
