Monday’s LFC Transfer Rumours: German may raise the Ba (& sly Tevez loan move)

Fresh off the back of two fantastic results over Manchester City and Manchester United in the last week, Liverpool are still looking to bolster their squad before the January transfer window closes on Tuesday night, according to the national media.

Expect the next 48 hours to be packed full of transfer rumours, Twitter pranks and “I saw Messi signing up for the gym in Liverpool One” type sightings.

Monday morning’s rumour mill is well and truly in motion with reports suggesting Kenny Dalglish and Damien Comolli are set to begin talks with Werder Bremen over signing German international Marko Marin.

The highly rated 22-year-old winger has been a long-term target of the Reds’ and could provide some fantastic ammunition to supply Liverpool’s strike force with.

He has made 22 appearances for his country and could be available for around £12 million.

Liverpool have also joined a growing list of clubs who are keeping their eye on Newcastle Utd striker Demba Ba.

Ba, signed as Andy Carroll’s replacement for the Tyneside club on a free transfer in the summer, has scored 16 goals already this season and attracted lots of attention.

A clause on Ba’s contract would allow him to leave St James’ Park for £7million in the summer, with the player himself pocketing £3million of that.

The 26-year-old hopes to stay in the Premier League, and with Liverpool searching for a new striker, they could move swiftly to secure his signature this transfer window.

And after apparently having an informal swap bid rejected by Manchester City, reports this morning suggest Liverpool could make an audacious bid to take Carlos Tevez on loan until the end of the season.

As ever, take your morning dose of transfer speculation with a large pinch of salt!
