Liverpool bound?

Despite the chatter linking Liverpool with a move for Barcelona midfielder Alex Song quieting down over the last few weeks, the whispers are starting to increase in volume with reports out of Spain suggesting that the Reds are the front runners for the Barcelona midfielder’s signature.

With Lucas likely to leave the club — either permanently or on loan — before the transfer window closes at the end of the month, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is thought to be keen on bringing in a replacement for the Brazilian with Song his number one choice. Although a the Catalan club are pushing for a permanent move, the Northern Irishman is keen on a try before you buy deal and is looking to bring him in on loan before making up his mind.

Mario getting to know his fellow newbies

While the rest of the Liverpool squad took a well deserved day off following the 3-1 defeat to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City on Monday, new signing Mario Balotelli reportedly trained alone in an attempt to get his fitness levels back up to the appropriate levels.

Although he participated in a good portion of AC Milan’s pre-season matches — including a meeting with his new side in the Guinness International Champions Cup — apparently the striker isn’t quite up to Reds boss Brendan Rodgers high expectations. The Northern Irishman has hinted heavily that his newest charge could still be handed a debut when his side face off against Tottenham Hotspur this coming Sunday, but he also said that the Italian still has some work to do.

Keep calm and keep makin’ paper.

With a spell on the sidelines through injury almost a certainty for Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson, the 30-year old will have a lot of time to think about his future with talks over a new deal at Anfield stalled.

It’s believed that the Reds wanted to extend the experienced defender’s contract, but on a reduced wage — something Johnson doesn’t appear willing to compromise on. The fullback, who has been at the Merseyside club since moving from Portsmouth back in the summer of 2009, is one of the Reds highest earns with a wage reportedly hovering around the £110,000 per week mark. As of late, his form has hardly justified that exorbitant amount which has left the two sides at a stalemate.

Been there, won that.

Following last nights round of League Cup fixtures — which, it has to be said, we thoroughly enjoyed — Liverpool have drawn Middlesbrough at Anfield in the third round of the competition.

Sandwiched between Premier League clashes with West Ham United and Everton, the Championship side will travel to Anfield for the first time since the Reds ran out 2-1 winners back in August of 2008. Liverpool supporters everywhere have fond memories of the League Cup having one it on eight seperate occasions — the most recent coming under the watchful eye of Kenny Dalglish back in 2012 when his side saw off a persistent Cardiff City outfit on penalties.

Best of luck

Although Dutch side were initially looking to take Liverpool youth team striker Kristoffer Peterson on loan, today the Reds have announced that he’s made a permanent move to the Eredivisie outfit.

The 19-year old, who scored twice during Liverpool’s pre-season fixture list and was included in the team that competed in the Guinness International Champions Cup in North America, was unfortunate to never make a senior competitive appearance for the Anfield outfit despite showing immense promise during the summer. With Reds manger Brendan Rodgers bringing in a number of attacking players during the transfer window, first team football unfortunately never looked to be a possibility for the Swede, and even though the boss wanted to keep him in their set-up, a shot at finding regular action was too tempting for the youngster.
