Back to the rumour mill, churning away round and round everyday. Well it looks as if Liverpool could be about to sign Austrian central midfielder Paul Scharner, currently a free agent after his contract with Wigan expired.

Scharner’s agent, Valentin Hobel, hinted yesterday that new Reds boss Roy Hodgson is after the 30 year old.
