Here is Saturday’s news and gossip concerning Liverpool:
Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca reportedly wants a move to Anfield this summer, according to the Daily Star.
The Colombian will be available for £21.5m, which is the release clause in the player’s contract.
Should they fail in their bid for Bacca, Brendan Rodgers may turn to Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez to bolster his options, the Daily Express report.
The Mexican will be allowed to leave Old Trafford this summer, having failed to impress Louis van Gaal.
Despite being put off by Mateo Kovacic’s asking price, The Telegraph report that the Reds are still keen on making a signing from Inter Milan this summer, with Hernanes attracting attention.
The midfielder has featured regularly for Brazil, meaning that he could join their contingent of players from the country, with Roberto Firmino recently joining Philippe Coutinho at Anfield.
Another Brazilian possibly on his way to Merseyside is Barcelona full-back Adriano, the Daily Express report.
They will however, have to beat off competition from Inter Milan.
Finally, it appears that defender Sebastian Coates will be on his way out of Anfield this summer, the Daily Express also report.
Sunderland are keen to take the Uruguayan permanently, having had him on loan last year.
