The January transfer window Rumour Mill is churning a little bit faster today with news that Liverpool may have beaten their Premier League rivals to the most talked about young English midfielder around.
Derby County’s Will Hughes looks set to join Liverpool in January after the Reds agreed to pay the £12million Steve McLaren’s side are looking for for the highly rated 18-year-old.
Meanwhile Liverpool have also been linked with a move for Italian international Alessio Cerci, who played in his country’s 2-2 draw with Nigeria at Fulham’s Craven Cottage on Monday night.
Valued at £12.5m, Cerci struggled to make an impact during seven years at his first club Roma before joining Fiorentina in 2010. After two years in Florence he moved on to to Torino, where his displays have led to senior international recognition.
