Rumour Mill: Liverpool set to give City’s outcast a lifeline

The transfer activities in the premier league has been set ablaze with just 3 days to go before it shutdown. We all knew Liverpool is trying to sign a new striker to partner Luis Suarez after Andy Carroll failed to find his form.

According to Guardian, Liverpool have made a remarkable bid to swap Andy Carroll with Carlos Tevez. The move demonstrates how Liverpool are now openly looking at offloading Carroll despite the insistence behind the scenes at Anfield that he can still play a prominent part and Kenny Dalglish's praise for the player after the 2-1 FA Cup defeat of Manchester United.

Carroll has scored only six goals in 35 appearances since becoming the eighth most expensive footballer in history and has not even been able to establish himself as a regular starter this season.

His problems adapting on Merseyside have also left Liverpool willing to take a £10 million hit on the player, with Tevez valued at £25 million, though that revelation is hardly surprising considering his difficulties at Anfield, added to the sense that he has not always been fully focused.

Tevez is planning to return to Manchester next week now it has become apparent that Milan are not able to meet City's asking price and, unless anything changes before Tuesday's transfer deadline, his adviser, Kia Joorabchian, says the Argentinian wants to re-establish himself in the team.

Whether that is possible remains to be seen, with Mancini not prepared to entertain the idea unless there is an apology from Tevez for walking out on the club and the string of other offences that have already led to him being found guilty of gross misconduct and losing almost £10 million in wages, fines and lost bonuses since the start of the season.

Tevez is still a formidable striker and finished as the league's joint-top scorer last season, but he will be returning to England with a severely damaged reputation and Liverpool's attempt to take him along the M62 will surprise many people given his propensity for causing dressing-room problems and an apparent dislike of living in England.

There is also the fact that, approaching his 28th birthday, he would not have fitted into Liverpool's usual policy of buying players at a young age who will keep a resale value over the course of their contract. Liverpool, however, were willing to make an exception and City would have been glad to arrange a deal after unsuccessful talks not just with Milan but also Juventus, Internazionale and Paris St-Germain. They remain open to offers for the Argentinian but will not change their mind about Carroll.

Rumour Mill: David Villa to Liverpool?

First the papers says Liverpool having a popped at Carlos Tevez, and now it’s David Villa’s turn. According to reports in Spain, Liverpool have made an initial enquiry about an audacious move for Barcelona striker.

Why suddenly Liverpool are looking to add more firepower upfront? The recent team performances in the league has lead to the media to suggest that the Reds forward-line which consist of Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll, Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy doesn’t provide enough firepower to Liverpool.

Spanish premier radio station Cadena SER has reported that the Spain's top marksman is rumoured to have had a bust-up with Lionel Messi and is said to be unhappy at the Nou Camp after the club hesitated on offering him a new contract following the signing of Alexis Sanchez in the summer.

But Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola has denied that Villa and Messi have fallen out.

   “It is impossible to be an enemy of David, he is too nice a person.

“He is generous both in the way he plays football and also in his personal life. It is impossible not to get on well with him.”

Does Liverpool's recent home draws against Norwich and Swansea, enough to sanction such a panic? Dalglish may feel he needs more goals up front as he looks to re-establish the Reds in the Premier League's top four and with it qualification for the Champions League next season. But it’s the pressure on the manager to get Suarez and Carroll playing together could have leads to the Reds recent scoring droughts.

David Villa to Liverpool? And Barcelona won’t praised with its asset on the cheap – we are looking in the region on £33million price tag for the Spanish international striker. Although, John W. Henry and FSG would eager to invest on the playing squad but Dalglish need to sell before he can make that audacious move on Villa.

Let us know what are your thoughts on Villa moving to Anfield in the comment box below.

Rumour Mill: Liverpool making a shock move on City striker

Carlos Tevez This can’t be serious??? The newspapers headlines aren’t something to be make believe 100% these days – there are more misses than hits as usual. Manchester City's controversial striker Carlos Tevez has emerged as a shock target for Liverpool who are hoping to land the player on a short term loan deal.

This would be something of a surprise but perhaps there is a possibility that Liverpool are interested in snapping up the Argentine but one would imagine that such a move could be as much of a headache as a boost to their firepower.

Manchester City definitely want to sell the 27-year-old and would presumably prefer a permanent exit but it seems the likes of Corinthians are not willing to stump up the asking price for the former West Ham and Manchester United man. Tevez would be looking to secure first team football as soon as possible as if he continues to be without regular football then he may well be in danger of freezing himself out of national team action.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has seen his side criticised in recent weeks for failing to find the target despite carving out numerous opportunities.

The Reds beat West Brom 2-0 at the weekend but it could have been more had the side taken their chances, while a 1-1 draw with Norwich at Anfield further highlighted Liverpool's lack of composure in front of goal plus the stalemate match with Swansea City last Saturday.

Dalglish managed to convince Mancini to part with striker Craig Bellamy over the summer and is reportedly contemplating bringing Tevez to Anfield.

Liverpool already have Bellamy, Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll available to play up front, but should the Reds be able to land Tevez on a short term loan deal then they would snap up the opportunity to have such a prolific striker at the club.

Whatever people may think of the Tevez as the man, Tevez as the player, he’s a very effective striking weapon. The Buenos Aires born striker has scored an impressive 53 goals from 80 City starts since his move to the club in July 2009.

What do you think of this move? Leave your comment on the box below.

BPL: Manchester City 3-0 Liverpool goal highlights

Liverpool suffered their first league defeat under Roy Hodgson as Manchester City recorded an emphatic 3-0 triumph at Eastlands on Monday night.

The Reds struggled to cope with a vibrant attacking display from the hosts throughout the contest and were ultimately undone by Gareth Barry's well crafted opener and a second-half double from Carlos Tevez.

It leaves Hodgson still awaiting his first Barclays Premier League victory in the hot-seat and means his side will now have to bounce back in time for what promises to be a tough Europa League clash in Trabzonspor on Thursday night.

Ahead of the showdown the main talking points in the away end centred upon the absence of Javier Mascherano and the choice of a 4-4-2 formation that paired David Ngog with the fit-again Fernando Torres. [Read more…]

Liverpool trail in race for £25M forward

Carlos Tevez The uncertainty of an Argentine forward has led to clubs from England and Spain vying for his signature. With limited transfer fund, Rafa Benitez is unwilling to succumb to the demand. Hence, Manchester City with million of pounds at their disposal went ahead of this race.

But the player’s future at Manchester United will be decided by tomorrow.

The Times says Kia Joorabchian, whose companies own the economic rights to Carlos Tevez, is expected to meet David Gill, United chief executive, tomorrow to resolve the situation. If United agree to pay the £25.5million required to secure the permanent signing of Tevez, the player will have a decision to make.

Why? He wasn’t happy with United’s attempts to drive his transfer fees down and has been a benchwarmer for the biggest football final in Rome last month.

Manchester City more than willing to pay the asking price and would also be able to offer Tevez vastly inflated wages. Although Liverpool fell short behind, Chelsea and Real Madrid are also interested in bolstering their squad this summer.

Will Rafa Benitez still want to deal on this little Argentine or he could raise his bid for another Argentine?
