Transfer rumours: Kuyt and Mascherano latest

Roy Hodgson has reiterated that Dik Kuyt is not for sale, insisting the Dutchman is a key part of his Liverpool plans.

It has been suggested in some quarters that the 30-year-old's future could lay elsewhere other than Anfield, but the manager was robust when answering questions from journalists about the forward's future.

   "We have not received any offer. Dirk Kuyt has not told me he wants to go.

"We don't want an offer and at this very late stage in transfer window it would be remarkably unusual for us to accept an offer for a player we don’t want to lose and for money we don't want.

"I need the player, I don't need money." Hodgson told a press conference in Turkey.

Hodgson continues to deny any knowledge of Kuyt wanting to leave despite suggestions by his agent that talks between the two clubs are continuing.

Meanwhile, Rob Jansen has claimed that the Dutch forward wants to leave the club and that talks are ongoing between Liverpool and Inter Milan, who former Reds boss Rafa Benitez departed for this summer.

Hodgson also revealed there have been no new developments in the future of Javier Mascherano, who continues to be linked with Barcelona.

The Argentina captain was left out of Monday's Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester City by the boss and did not join the squad in travelling to Turkey today.

But Hodgson said he hoped there would be a conclusion one way or the other in the next few days and did not rule out selecting the Argentina captain for Sunday's Premier League match at home to West Brom.

   "As far as I know there have been no further developments since the last time I spoke to the press.

"The fact he's not here is, I guess, because the negotiations are on going between the clubs. If he played here tomorrow it might prejudice the transfer.

"I don't wish to do anything like that to the player. I don't wish to prejudice his transfer by forcing him onto the field in a game which might make it difficult.

"But I am seriously hoping things will be sorted out in the next couple of days one way or another. I have no idea which way that will be.

"Going into Sunday's game (against West Brom), I think I am entitled to have the player available for selection if he is going to continue to be a Liverpool player.

"Tomorrow night was never a question, but Sunday is very much a question because I think that by Sunday I should know whether he is going to play for Liverpool this season or Barcelona." Hodgson told a press conference in Turkey.

Hodgson also quashed the press’ speculations on the multitude of strikers linked with Liverpool in recent days such as David Trezeguet, Mario Gomez and Carlton Cole. He simply answered the press, “None of those players are likely to be playing for Liverpool this season.”

Time is running out for Roy Hodgson to find reinforcements

Liverpool manager, Roy Hodgson has mentioned that he need to get one or two more new players in before the transfer windows closes next Tuesday.

Although, it is not in his nature to buy players without first to accessed his squad. He maybe right to be cautious about spending sizeable sums on a player if there is a talent coming through the academy and reserves.

Alberto Aquilani has left on loan for Juventus, leaving Liverpool short of cover in the midfield area. While, Barcelona has unsettled Javier Mascherano which the Argentina’s captain demanded an answer from Hodgson before the match against Manchester City. This results in Mascherano withdrawal from the line-up for the Eastlands clash.

Hodgson has already got a head start on finding cover. According to the Daily Telegraph he is close to sealing deals for striker Ola Toivonen and left back Carlos Salcido from PSV Eindhoven. News from the Dutch club confirmed Liverpool FC interest in Swedish forward Ola Toivonen but Liverpool are unwilling to pay more than £10million for the forward.

It is understood that Hodgson’s hands are tied, unless Barcelona come back with an improved bid for Mascherano. Liverpool has turned down a bid from the Catalan club yesterday, which the press has report to be amount in the region of £12million plus £5million in appearances add-on for Mascherano, and way too low from the asking price.

The match at City of Manchester Stadium last night saw Hodgson gave Daniel Pacheco a run out with the senior team. The Spanish starlet has shown some glimpses of hope for the Reds side in the match. Maybe more first team appearances for Pacheco will helps developed his game.

For me, getting another striker is crucial, some of you may see Ryan Babel can play in that role but he sometime seems out of his game. Veteran and experienced forward, David Trezeguet may fits the bill.

This remaining eight days will be busting with activities at Anfield as time is running out for Liverpool FC to get reinforcements.

Juventus forward on Liverpool’s radar

David Trezeguet's agent claims Liverpool are interested in signing the Juventus forward.

Reports in Italy claim Liverpool made an enquiry for Trezeguet after allowing Alberto Aquilani to join Juve on loan.

Reds boss Roy Hodgson is keen to bolster his attacking options before the close of the transfer window and he is believed to be considering a swoop for French international Trezeguet.

Trezeguet's future at Juve has been the subject of speculation for some time with the Frenchman dropping down the pecking order at the Bianconeri.

The player's agent, Antonio Caliendo, admits Liverpool and Spanish duo Real Zaragoza and Hercules are chasing Trezeguet's signature.

   "An interest from Liverpool? There are requests, not just of Liverpool.

"In Spain there is the interest of Real Zaragoza and Hercules.

"We are considering offers, today is a day of reflection, we will know more tomorrow." Caliendo told
