Moses Liverpool Loan

Having sold Stewart Downing to West Ham and loaned out Moroccan Oussama Assaidi to Stoke City the Liverpool boss is keen to bring in Moses, who has struggled to make an impact following his move from Wigan Athletic to Chelsea last August.

The 22 year old made just 12 Premier League starts last term and may well feel a move to Liverpool could help re-ignite his career and the move very much adheres to the Merseyside club’s youthful transfer policy.

Rodgers is also understood to have convinced PSG defender Sakho to move to Liverpool, with other sides said to be interested in the adaptable French international, and will hope to welcome the 23 year old to beef up his defensive options.

Kolo Toure and Sebastian Coates are both currently out injured and with Jamie Carragher having hung up his boots Rodgers is desperate to bring in alternative options before the transfer window closes.

Sakho PSG Liverpool

Sakho has seen his first team chances at the Parc des Princes limited by the arrival of Brazilian youngster Marquinhos, with Alex and Thiago Silva also ahead of the one club man in the PSG pecking order.

Liverpool have made an offer of £13m for the PSG man, who can play at left-back as well as in the centre of defence, and will hope this is sufficient to sign Sakho who has 196 appearances for the big spending Ligue 1 side. Mamadou Sakho will hope that the move would help to secure the regular first team football he needs in order to play a more prominent role in Didier Deschamps’ French national team set-up.
