Here is Monday’s news and gossip concerning Liverpool:
Raheem Sterling is on the verge of completing his £49m move to Manchester City, according to the Daily Mirror.
The winger will sign a five-year deal worth £180,000 a week at the Etihad.
He could be followed out the Anfield door this summer by promising youngster Jerome Sinclair, after the Daily Mail reported that the 18-year-old has rejected a new contract with the Merseyside club.
With one year left on his current deal, the Reds may be forced to sell the striker.
Brendan Rodgers is interested in using the money the club received for Raheem Sterling to fund a move for Gonzalo Higuain, the Daily Express suggest.
However, his asking price could prove a stumbling block, with Napoli wanting £64.7m.
Another striker catching their eye is Fiorentina forward Mario Gomez, according to the Daily Express. A move for the German may see Mario Balotelli head in the opposite direction.
The Express suggest that the initial deal could see the players complete season-long loans.
Finally, Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke remains on the club’s radar, according to Metro.
They may have to battle it out with Manchester United for his signature.
