Sevilla winger on Liverpool radar

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish had hoped to land Aston Villa winger Young to supply chances for Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez next season, but the England international is believed to have expressed a preference for a move to Old Trafford.

Diego Perotti Promising winger Diego Perotti has attracted the interest of Premier League side Liverpool with his good performances for Sevilla in the 2010-11 campaign.

The Reds are apparently willing to pay £7 million to secure the 22-year-old signature, but face competition from Juventus.

Sevilla are hoping a bidding war will develop and that they can push the price for the Argentina international up to £8.5 million.

The Italian giants’ involvement in the transfer is an interesting twist, considering Liverpool is already in a tug of war style talk with Juventus over the movement of on loan Alberto Aquilani.

Should the Italians snare Perotti from Liverpool, Dalglish may be a lot less willing to negotiate a lower price than the €16 million set for Aquilani’s permanent release.

Liverpool lost the race for England winger

Manchester United are convinced they have seen off competition from Liverpool to wrap up the signing of Ashley Young from Aston Villa for £15million in the next few weeks.

Sportsmail revealed last month how Liverpool were closing in on the England winger but feared United would scupper their plans.

Those misgivings have now been realised, with the champions putting the finishing touches to a deal despite Manchester City also showing late interest.

United have signed goalkeeper David de Gea from Atletico Madrid, as exclusively revealed by Sportsmail in March, and are keen on Inter Milan and Holland midfielder Wesley Sneijder and Newcastle left back Jose Enrique.

What Kenny Dalglish trying to achieve at Anfield?

The January transfer windows has now completely shut. Liverpool Football Club paid two record transfer fees to sign Andy Carroll from Newcastle United for £35million and Luis Suarez from Ajax Amsterdam for £22.8million.

From this transfer window, do you have noticed that King Kenny has signed some players resembles to his 1987 era recruits? John Aldridge, Peter Beardsley and John Barnes back in the 1987 campaign.

Andy Carroll has the temperamental similar to Aldridge back in the 80’s, while the speedy Suarez has liken to Beardsley. But Liverpool last-minute bid for winger Ashley Young failed to materialised and Young could be the missing jigsaw piece that could sees him as the new John Barnes of the 21st century.

Formidable in the air and a real presence in attack, Carroll will be relishing the move to Anfield and a potentially deadly new partnership with Luis Suarez.

Luis Suarez on target against Stoke Uruguay international Suarez has a reputation for being one of the deadliest marksmen in Europe and is among a select few to have plundered more than a century of goals during his time at the Amsterdam Arena.

The new look Liverpool side has now go on and registered their third win in a row and three clean sheets in succession under Kenny Dalglish.

Before these new signings, Liverpool are too dependant on two players, Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard. After last night victory over Stoke City at Anfield, Kenny Dalglish is already looking forward to the time when he can field new signings Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez alongside Steven Gerrard and Raul Meireles in a "frightening'' attacking line-up. Fernando who?

Dalglish also paid tribute to his team, reorganised in a 3-4-2-1 formation to combat Stoke's approach, for their third successive clean sheet.

   "What was every bit as important was the defenders did their job to ensure we could go and win it and I thought they were superb,'' he said.

A formula to accommodate both Gerrard and Meireles, who scored the opener, behind the two new strikers could be problematic but football is not really about formations. The point is that Dalglish now has a quartet of foragers who will swing plenty of tight games his way. By an unforeseeable twist, losing the most expensive player to wear the Liver bird has broken the dependence on two star turns: Torres, who probably left months ago, in his head, and Gerrard, the over-burdened embodiment of all things Liverpool.

In less than a month Dalglish has lost a household name but rebuilt the front of his side. Just to see Suarez on the pitch in his old No.7 shirt must have felt reassuring. No longer is Liverpool's time spent worrying about who will leave next. Instead all eyes are on the new boys, the future.
