Still skeptical. Good to see reputable reporters saying things favoring Liverpool, but I just can't get my hopes up. Would be a nice deal if it went down.

Rodgers is still waiting like us. From the Telegraph
Quote:
The Northern Irishman has been strongly linked with loan deals for Barcelona winger Cristian Tello, 21, and Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin, 23, in the last few days.

He would not confirm those two were the players involved but expected news on two potential new arrivals very soon.

"I am hopeful we can bring in one or two more to help the group here," said Rodgers, who added there was nothing imminent on players leaving, either on loan or permanently.

"I'll find out later. We hope in the next couple of days we'll have one or two coming in.

"Hopefully in the next 48 hours we will find out."

Getting really anxious. Hope it all works out.

The second arrival he mentions could be Dempsey, rather than Tello. Sounds by things that a deal has been agreed its just about convincing Adam to go the other way.

Charlie Adam is awful, he can't even recognise that he isn't wanted at all.

Reds agree deal for winger
Quote:
Liverpool Football Club have reached an agreement with SC Heerenveen for the transfer of winger Oussama Assaidi, subject to the player passing a medical.

The 24-year-old, who has scored 20 goals in 68 appearances for Heerenveen in the Dutch Eredivisie, will now undergo a medical at Melwood.

Assaidi has represented his native Morocco 22 times since making his international debut in February 2011.

Wow. This came out of nowhere. Maybe the Tello staying at Barcelona rumours are true.

So, who is he? Laughing

I would also be inclined to agree that he was lined up as a backup to Tello... don't expect that move to happen now.

Quick Google News seems to be that he was on his way to Ajax but they could not match his wage demands. Looks like Liverpool did.

Well that's an interesting development. Tello isn't anywhere near as important as Sahin though.

10 league goals from the wing last year, could see him displacing Downing in the side, which I'm sure would be much to the delight of Liverpool fans worldwide Laughing

Tony Barrett says the deal is for 3 m. If the wages are right, this could be a low risk signing.

Local Newcastle press suggest he's a very good player for you, these journo's follow Graham Carr around, so I think if you get him you're getting a decent player

Good deal, all things considered. From the clips I've watched of him when watching Narsingh, seemed a decent all-around winger. Hope he can adjust to the PL quickly. Glad to have someone new up top as an option.


Edit: Oussama lul

From The Times
Quote:
Arsenal want Nuri Sahin, the Real Madrid midfielder, to join them instead of Liverpool after marking him out as their favoured choice to replace Alexandre Song. The North London club cannot rule out selling Song to Barcelona this month, although the Catalan club are likely to have to offer about 20 million for a player with three years left on his contract.

...Arsenal can offer Sahin, who is available on loan, the chance of playing in the Champions League and prefer him to Lucas Biglia, of Anderlecht, who has been watched but Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool manager, confirmed his interest in the Madrid player and said that he hopes to strengthen the squad before the weekend.


More bad news

Oliver Kay ‏@OliverKayTimes

Yes @frankly_lfc and many others, I'm backtracking re Sahin/LFC. *Could* still happen but Arsenal move yesterday changed the dynamics. Apols
