Here is Tuesday’s news and gossip concerning Liverpool:
Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Barcelona youngster Bobby Adekayne, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The 16-year-old winger will be available on a free, as FIFA deemed his move to the Nou Camp four years ago as illegal.
Another player that came through the Barcelona academy that has attracted attention from the Merseyside club in the past is Lazio forward Keita Balde Diao.
The Daily Star suggest that interest in the player could be reignited this summer, after the striker insisted that he wants to leave the Serie A side if he is not getting game time.
The Reds have already agreed a deal that would see Eduardo Salvio move to Anfield in January, according to the Metro.
His current club Benfica want around £25m for the winger.
Tottenham may prove to be the club that denies Liverpool signing Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke, the Daily Star report.
Spurs are offering the Midlands club cash plus Emmanuel Adebayor for the Belgian.
Finally, new signing Joe Gomez has revealed that his mind was made up to join Liverpool once he had spoken to Brendan Rodgers, the Daily Star report.
“I met him [Rodgers] and that was a defining factor. He was positive and has already shown he will give young players an opportunity,” he said.
