An active transfer summer at Anfield continues, as more players appear to be coming and going for high-spending Liverpool.
After prolonged talks, Newcastle's Jose Enrique is finally set to join the Reds, as Kenny Daglish seeks to strengthen the club's defense. According to Daily Star, Liverpool and Newcastle agreed to a £5.5 million fee. Arsenal were heavily interested in Enrique, but it's been that kind of summer for Arsene Wenger.
Daglish doesn't appear to be stopping at Enrique. Footy Bunker reports that Liverpool also remain in talks with Birmingham about centre back Scott Dann, another Wenger target, if the fee drops below £12 million. The Sunday People, meanwhile, claims Borussia Dortmund centre back Neven Subotic rejected Liverpool.
While Enrique is expected to arrive in Anfield, and with Dann perhaps joining him, Liverpool also have a few players who might be set to leave.
There appears to be firm rumours that veteran Joe Cole will depart from Liverpool. Both the Guardian and the Times report that Queens Park Rangers want to add the attacking midfielder on a season-long loan. Meanwhile, the Sun claimed last week that Paris St. Germain has shown increased interest in Cole.
The Sun also reported West Ham's pursuit of striker David Ngog. This is the first time Ngog has been mentioned since Daily Mirror claimed that Sunderland was looking to pay £5 million for the Frenchman in June. Bolton might be another club interested in a bid for Ngog.
Liverpool's crowded midfield might be a little thinner if Alberto Aquilani finally moves on after several weeks of speculation. The newest club to show interest is AC Milan, with Fiorentina still considered the frontrunner. Juventus, Manchester City, Tottenham, and Sunderland have also been rumoured to be keen on the 27-year-old.
Expect increased talks from the Reds in the coming days as the season begins on Saturday, when they host Sunderland.
