Liverpool are attempting to persuade Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier to part ways with England winger Stewart Downing, according to The Express.

New manager and Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish is looking to expand his squad’s depth and apparently believes that Downing would give the Reds' midfield some of the much-needed pace and creativity it desperately lacks when skipper Steven Gerrard is unavailable.

It is reported it would cost Liverpool around £10 million to secure Downing's services.
