Transfer Rumours: Liverpool add Vidal, Pogba and Marco Reus to shortlist

MAIN-Arturo-Vidal-Paul-Pogba-Marco-ReusLiverpool look to smash through the 100million barrier this summer for the first time in their history.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has already spent 60million this summer and still has QPR forward Loic Remy, Southampton defender Dejan Lovren and young Swansea full-back Ben Davies on his radar.

Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Liverpool are still looking to spend and looks to have the whole 75million from the Luis Suarez deal to spend this summer “We are working hard behind the scenes to find players, but it will not be a direct replacement [for Suarez].

“We are looking for several players who can add to what we have and improve us again.”

Last summer Tottenham spent 85million after selling Gareth Bale, and it did not work out for the Londoners.

Manager Andre-Villas Boas lost his jobs 4 months later, after Tottenham saw their title hopes fade and saw their Champions League hopes fades to.

However, Rodgers claims that selling Luis Suarez will make them stronger in the long run as they now have the financial capabilities to challenge Manchester City and Chelsea.

The Northern Irishman, who steered the Kop club to a surprise second place last season, said: “Obviously, Luis going gives us the clout to go and spend more and we are getting the right type of player in.

“We certainly won’t spend just for the sake of spending. It has to be the sort of player who is going to improve us. But we will definitely be stronger this season – no doubt.”

Liverpool have already brought in Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Rickie Lambert and Lazar Markovic and they look certain to double the 60million they have spent already.

Liverpool tried earlier this summer to sign a ‘marquee signing’ in Alexis Sanchez, but he favoured a move to Arsenal over Liverpool.

Liverpool want a top class midfielder and could target Arturo Vidal or Paul Pogba, with Vidal being linked with a move to arch-rivals Manchester United.

Vidal would cost around 30million but Liverpool have Champions League football that they can offer, something that Manchester United could not attract Vidal with.

Paul Pogba has been linked with Chelsea this summer, but will cost around 60million to price away from Juventus this summer.

Liverpool are also targeting Marco Reus, who could be available for around 30million, and would offer another threat up front or on the wing.

Any of these players would represent a marquee signing by the Reds and would lift the fans spirits for the new season after the departure of Luis Suarez.
