Liverpool to swoop for Young with £50m Torres money

Monday’s transfer deadline day looks set to be a very exciting one indeed for Liverpool Football Club.

There is sure to be lots more twists and turns along the way, before the transfer window shuts at 11pm GMT tomorrow night.

Latest reports suggest Chelsea will stump up almost £50million to break the British transfer record and lure Fernando Torres to Stamford Bridge.

Torres was at Melwood today training after a day’s break on Saturday, but it is understood that there was little to say between him and the team mates he looks set to leave behind.

The £50million however looks set to be spent immediately as Kenny Dalglish continues his repairing of the club.

Expect lots of rumours and made up stories tomorrow. Maybe Lionel Messi will be “spotted” buying a cake from Daphna’s cake shop on Smithdown Road? Maybe Ziedine Zidane is coming out of retirement and his wife will be spotted buying property in Formby?

The Guardian tonight reports of a potential of three new Liverpool signings tomorrow.

One will be the finalised deal for £23million Ajax striker Luis Suarez, who met his teammates at Melwood this weekend, passed a medical and agreed terms on a six year deal.

Also thought to be in it’s final stages is the deal to bring Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam to Anfield. The Scottish international has been chased by Liverpool throughout the transfer window and a fee of around £8million could change hands with the Tangerines.

And finally with Torres on his way out, Liverpool could renew their interest in Aston Villa and England winger Ashley Young.

Andy Hunter and Domini Fifield write in Monday’s Guardian:

John W Henry, Liverpool’s principal owner, is believed to have called his compatriot and opposite number at Villa Park, Randy Lerner, at the weekend to enquire about Young’s availability. He was informed that the Midlanders have no intention of selling their prize asset during this transfer window.

There could, some believe, also be a last minute transfer scurry for a new left-back – a position Liverpool are lacking in strength.
