No new injury worries for West Ham clash
Posted On April 5, 2013
Liverpool go in to Sunday afternoons game with West Ham United with no fresh injury concerns, with Joe Allen, Martin Kelly and Fabio Borini all long-term absentees.
The Reds can keep up the feint hopes of qualifying for next seasons Champions League with victory over the Hammers, who will be without Andy Carroll, who is ineligible for the match.
Meanwhile, The Mirror have reported that contact has been made between the club and Newcastle United regarding a potential deal for midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa, which could see former Magpie Caroll move in the opposite direction.
Ben Arfa has long been linked with the Reds, who are reportedly looking to bring in a number of attacking midfielders in the summer.
Blackpool’s Tom Ince is another who has been earmarked by Brendan Rodgers, with the winger today being valued at £25 million by his manager, former Liverpool midfielder Paul Ince.
Elsewhere, Talksport have reported that Liverpool are the latest Premier League club to express an interest in Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld.
A bid of £8 million may be enough to tempt the Eredivise leaders to sell the centre back, who is yet to sign an extension to a deal that expires next summer.
Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are also interested in the Belgian international, who has been capped 23 times.
