In the Papers: 5th September

The transfer window may have slammed shut several days ago, yet that doesn’t mean to say that there is an absence of headlines about the Reds. In fact, the newspapers seem full of Liverpool stories for Wednesday.

The first major headline comes from talkSPORT, with this outlet claiming that Brendan Rodgers is attempting to solve the club’s goal scoring problems with the acquisition of Italian legend Alessandro Del Piero. Del Piero, now 37-years-old, is currently without a club, although the Reds could have their work cut out over this deal with several reports in Australia hinting that Sydney are the favourites to sign the former Juventus man.

In other news, the Daily Mail have published a story that has suggested that Brendan Rodgers went to extreme measures to try and land Fulham striker Clint Dempsey. The newspaper has stated that as well as offering Jordan Henderson to the Cottagers, Rodgers also asked agents to circulate the names of Jose Enrique and Stewart Downing to other clubs in a bid to raise the necessary funds.

The Sun also have a couple of stories up their sleeve, with the biggest relating to Andy Carroll. The newspaper is claiming that Carroll was desperate to prove Brendan Rodgers wrong before his move to West ham, yet the former Swansea boss never gave the striker a chance and even told him that there might be a chance he won’t make the 18-man squad on some occasions. Moreover, another paper are also stating that a recall clause was inserted into the Hammers’ loan agreement, on Carroll’s request.

Another paper has also published a story about John W Henry. Following on from his open letter to Reds supporters, the Liverpool owner has seemingly done the same to fans of his other sports team, the Boston Red Sox. The major difference between the two letters was that Henry actually told fans of the Baseball outfit that funds were available, and the club would continue to invest and maintain their position at the top of the spending charts in the league.
