The Liverpool rumours never end and some of the stories that came out this week were quite interesting.
Fans and critics alike are waiting to see how Liverpool will go about coping without Luis Suarez during his eight-game match ban.
The return of Steven Gerrard has definitely lifted hopes in Merseyside but you get the feeling that as always, more is wanted.
Here are some of the top gossip stories involving Liverpool this week.
The article mentions that:
The La Liga giants hope to tempt the 24 year old striker into leaving Liverpool just a year after moving to the Merseyside club from Ajax. That hope may have been increased by suggestions that Suarez feels he is being vilified by the powers that be, the national press and opposition supporters, enough to make the talented striker consider his future in the country.
That's actually decent reasoning but such a move is unlikely.
The Sun also has some pretty interesting stories. The Sun reports that Andy Carroll will be subject to a bid from his former club Newcastle, for £10 million. That's a good £25 million away from the price of his transfer to Liverpool.
To add insult to injury, the article goes on to mention that Carroll would have to take a pay-cut to return to his old club.
Liverpool are in need of another forward and Talksport.com reports that the Merseyside club will look into signing Salomon Kalou in this window.
Kalou would certainly come at a cheaper price than most but he may not be the goal-scoring forward that the club needs.
According to the Daily Mail, Galatasaray is looking to lure Dirk Kuyt away from Liverpool.
Kuyt's playing time and productivity have decreased this year but he can still be an important utility player for the Reds. If anything, a summer move is more likely than a January one.
It will be hard for either team to gain his services, as his team is currently in the Champions League, while they are not. Tottenham may also seem a more interesting prospect because of their current position in the league.
