Liverpool in driving seat to sign the Spanish left-back

After losing out on Gael Clichy to Manchester City, with the latter opted for Champions league football. Liverpool FC renewed their interest in Jose Enrique from Newcastle United.

Earlier on, Arsenal are reportedly in the market for Clichy replacement and has targeted the Spaniard. But the latest news from the internet suggested that Arsene Wenger has prefer to sign a French player instead, according to

Jose Enrique But when the Magpies slapped a massive £15million price tag on the Spanish defender, even though he has only a year left on his contract, Liverpool switched their sights to Clichy.

Dalglish thought he could get the Arsenal star for less than half the Enrique price, but Manchester City snapping up the Frenchman leaves the Reds still looking for a left-back.

Liverpool will now return to St James’ Park with an improved £8million bid for Enrique, as Dalglish looks to strengthen the left side of his defence.

Liverpool were forced to play England right-back Glen Johnson out of position for much of last season, after new signing Paul Konchesky flopped.

And with Fabio Aurelio again showing his frailty with yet more injuries, left-back is a top priority for the Merseyside club.

His contract situation means Newcastle will surely be forced to sell this summer, rather than risk losing out on a fee.

The Spaniard returned to training yesterday, and has set up talks with manager Alan Pardew for later in the week, but his refusal to sign a new deal that's been on the table for six months would seem to hint at his intentions.

Blackpool wants Liverpool central defender in Adam deal

Having missed out on Connor Wickham to Sunderland and Gael Clichy to Manchester City. Liverpool has intensified its chase for more new recruits for the coming season. Charlie Adam has been the prime target since the January transfer window. Blackpool are trying to compensate the loss of Adam by signing more players on loan.

Blackpool captain Adam has told the Seasiders of his desire to leave for Anfield this summer but manager Ian Holloway is hoping to soften the blow by acquiring three players on loan.

Danny Wilson After Stephen Darby and Jonjo Shelvey were proposed as two of the possible makeweights, 19-year-old Wilson is the third young Red to be linked with a move to Bloomfield Road as part of the package for Adam.

Blackpool would still be looking at an £8million fee for Adam's signature but an agreement to release the Liverpool trio on season long loans would speed up the protracted transfer of the Scot to Merseyside.

Blackpool appear to have already found a replacement for Adam with yesterday's signing of attacking midfielder Bojan Djordjic from Hungarian side Videoton on a free transfer.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is understood to be willing to loan out Scotland international Wilson - a £5million signing from Rangers last summer - after his former club expressed a desire to have him back at Ibrox for next season.

Liverpool had hoped the signing of Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson earlier this month would have kick-started a rush of transfer activity but reported targets Phil Jones and Connor Wickham have gone elsewhere - the acquisition of Adam has therefore taken on greater urgency.

Ipswich striker Wickham, who emerged as one of the summer's hottest properties and was on the Anfield wish-list, signed for Sunderland yesterday in an £8.1million deal with the fee potentially rising as high as £12million with various add-ons.

Liverpool target to remains at Emirates

Arsene Wenger claims Arsenal are doing all they can to keep Gael Clichy at Emirates Stadium.

Gael Clichy The French full-back has been linked with a number of clubs this summer, with it reported that he is keen to take on a new challenge.

Serie A giants Roma are believed to be heading the queue for his signature, with Liverpool also in the hunt.

Wenger has commented on the issue before, making it clear that the Gunners would be reluctant to do business with a Premier League rival.

He has, however, now revealed that Arsenal are in talks with the defender regarding his future.

They hope the 25-year-old can be persuaded to stay on and pen an extension to his current contract, which is due to expire next year.

"We have started talks with Gael and want him to stay," said Wenger.

Rumour Mill: More players to be signed by Liverpool FC this week

Liverpool could be set to step up their summer transfer dealings with moves for as many as five new players this week.

Arsenal left-back Gael Clichy has emerged as a serious target for Kenny Dalglish, whilst the Anfield outfit are also weighing up bids for Aston Villa's Stewart Downing, Blackpool captain Charlie Adam, Ipswich forward Connor Wickham and Southampton starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Dalglish made his first signing of the summer last week with the £16m capture of Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson, and is eager to oversee a serious revamp of his squad, ahead of what promises to be a pivotal season at Anfield.

French international Clichy has just one year remaining on his contract at Arsenal, and is understood to have informed the Gunners that he has no plans to renew his deal in North London. The 25-year-old is valued by manager Arsene Wenger at around £7m.

Italian sides Inter Milan and Roma have expressed an interest, but Liverpool would have the upper hand due to the presence of Damien Comolli, the club's Director of Football. Comolli was integral to Clichy's move to Arsenal from French club Cannes in 2003, and the full-back is believed to be keen to secure a switch to Merseyside.

Downing, Villa's Player of the Season, is also eager to link up with Dalglish's side. The 26-year-old is another player who has been on Comolli's radar for some time, stretching back to Comolli's time at Tottenham, but is valued by Villa at around £18m, with Liverpool hoping to pay closer to £15m for the England international.

In the case of Adam, it could be much simpler. The Scotland international was desperate to join the Liverpool in January, but a move fell through after the Reds were unable to meet Blackpool's £12m asking price.

But with the Tangerines having been relegated from the Premier League, and with the 25-year-old having expressed his desire to quit the club, Adam will now be available for around £8m, meaning a move to Anfield is a likelihood rather than a possibility.

And with Dalglish and Comolli keen to infuse their squad with youthful, English talent, moves for the highly-rated duo of Wickham and Oxlade-Chamberlain have also been lined up.

Wickham, 18, is valued by Ipswich at £10m, and has been attracting interest from Arsenal, Tottenham and Sunderland of late. But the 6ft 3in striker, who is away with England's under-21s at the European Championships in Denmark, is believed to favour a move to Merseyside.

England Under-19 star Oxlade-Chamberlain, 17, was watched several times by Comolli last season, and has been a £10m target for Arsenal. But with Southampton holding out for closer to £12m for the starlet, and the Gunners wary of spending such a fee on an untested youngster, a switch to Liverpool is a possibility.

Meanwhile, young goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi has revealed the club are in the market for an experienced back-up shot-stopper, expected to be Roma's Doni, as he prepares to leave on loan.

"I had already been thinking about my possible departure in March although that time it wasn't a topic that Brad Friedel or Doni may sign for Liverpool," said the 20-year-old.

"Of course it doesn't mean that I want my contract to be terminated because the team rely on me. When my agents and I indicated to the club officials that I would like to move to another club on loan they agreed with us and thought the same.

"The club said they rely on me for a long period and it made me very proud. But they added if I go then a seasoned goalkeeper may arrive at the club, which is understandable.

"The best way for me to improve is to play regularly. I don't know where I will play but talks are going well. I have offers from England and also from outside of England. I hope within 10 days or two weeks it will be a fact where I will continue my career - on loan."

Liverpool almost certain to land Newcastle full-back but also keeping tabs on Arsenal’s man

Liverpool's chances of signing Newcastle United full-back have been boosted after Alan Pardew made it known he would be interested in signing Paul Konchesky as a replacement.

Enrique is Liverpool's first choice to solve the club's problem left-back position in the summer and Newcastle's interest in Reds defender Konchesky raises the possibility of a player-plus-cash deal.

The two clubs are yet to open negotiations but Newcastle are privately resigned to losing the £8 million-rated man, who has just one year left on his contract and is also attracting interest from Arsenal and European giants AC Milan and Bayern Munich.

Reds manager Kenny Dalglish has also been keeping tabs on Arsenal full-back Gael Clichy, but Enrique has always been his top target following his consistent displays throughout this season. Meanwhile, Manchester City and Real Madrid are also interested in the Gunners full-back.

The two big spending clubs have placed Clichy on their list of summer targets but face strong competition from Liverpool, who have a long-standing interest in the Frenchman.

Negotiations stalled earlier in the year after Clichy's request for a hike on his £50,000-a-week wages was rebuffed by the club.

Manager Arsene Wenger fears the Gunners' longest-serving player will not extend his stay at Emirates Stadium and is becoming increasingly willing to listen to clubs who will match Arsenal's £5.5 million valuation rather than allow the France international to leave for free in a year's time.

Clichy, who turns 26 in July, is on the radar of a number of top clubs who are in the market for a proven performer at left-back.

However, director of football Damien Comolli was instrumental in bringing Clichy to London from Cannes in 2003 when he was working for Arsenal as their French scout.

City and Real are also in the market for a new left-back as they bid to beef up their squads in the summer.

Rumour Mill: Gunners left-back on Liverpool radar

Liverpool are reportedly planning an ambitious move to sign Arsenal left-back Gael Clichy. Contract talks between the French international and the North London club have broken down and with one year left year on his Gunners deal Anfield director of football Damien Comolli is hoping to lure the 25-year-old to Merseyside.

The left-back area has been something of a problem this season with Paul Konchesky starting the season as first choice before being loaned out to Nottingham Forest after failing to impress. Emiliano Insua is also out on loan and injury to Fabio Aurelio has led to the emergence of teenager Jack Robinson as a player with a great deal of potential, however Kenny Dalglish is still looking for a player to fill the hole.

Gael Clichy After eight years at Arsenal Clichy is reportedly considering his future and given that Arsene Wenger has ready made replacements in England international Kieran Gibbs and Armand Traore the French boss may be willing to allow the former Cannes man to leave.

Liverpool may find it hard to convince Clichy to move to a club who is unlikely to offer Champions League football for next term but having seen the sharp upturn in fortunes under Dalglish and the fact that the club is under new ownership, seemingly eager to bring in big names, a move to Anfield may tempt the Toulouse born full-back.

Liverpool will be looking to strengthen their squad following the big money signings of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll in January and a fee for Clichy would be significantly decreased by the fact that in one year he could leave for nothing.
