with Liverpool move
Forward Amauri Carvalho has been linked with a move to
Liverpool next season following comments from Palermo president Maurizio
Amauri has apparently been attracting the interest of the Anfield side while
top Spanish clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona have reportedly shown an
interest in acquiring the 27-year-old.
"It's going to be very difficult to keep Amauri," admitted Zamparini. "It
will be difficult especially if he continues to play as he has done.
"Amauri could finish in a top club in Spain or in the Premiership."
Amauri joined Palermo from Chievo in the summer of 2006 and signed a
four-year contract with the Rossaneri.
He scored eight goals in 18 Serie A games last season before suffering a
serious knee injury.
Amauri has recovered his form and has scored one goal in three league
appearances for the Sicilian giants so far this campaign.
Newcastle defender Steven Taylor is being linked with a
switch to Liverpool after rejecting a new deal at St James' Park.
The centre-half, who is currently on international duty, has two years left
on his current agreement and is in no rush to sign the five-year contract on
the table and Spurs are also said to be keen.
Taylor's father, Alf, who negotiates for his son, insists the youngsters is
desperate to stay on Tyneside but speculation is mounting.
"I only hope that they are not trying to force Steven out," Alf Taylor said
last week. "He loves Newcastle United and it is the only club he wants to
play for, but he is most disappointed at what they are offering him."
However, with Liverpool looking for a long-term replacement for Sami Hyppia
and Spurs skipper Ledley King seemingly unable to stay fit, Taylor could be
a player in demand in January.
Liverpool in hunt for £12 million playmaker
Liverpool are lining up a January bid for Cagliari
playmaker Pasquale Foggia.
According to the News of the World, Liverpool boss Rafa Benetiz is eager to
add the 24 year old to his squad despite the £12 million price tag that has
been slapped on him by his current club Lazio.
Foggia is currently on loan from Lazio to Cagliari and has won a call up to
the Italian national side having scored twice in the opening three games of
the Serie A season.
Atletico linked with
By Francisco Acedo - Sky Sports
Atletico Madrid are reported to have set their sights on
luring Jose Reina away from Liverpool and back to La Liga.
Spanish daily AS claims Atletico have made the former Villarreal goalkeeper
one of their top transfer targets.
Atletico are searching for a new goalkeeper with Leo Franco failing to
perform on a consistent basis and Christian Abbiati only being on loan until
the end of the season.
The capital club are believed to have sounded out Reina's representatives to
find out if the keeper would be interested in a move back to Spain.
However, Liverpool are unlikely to entertain any move for Reina who is
firmly established as the No 1 at Anfield.
Reina has previously expressed his happiness at Anfield and he signed a new
deal earlier in the summer to keep him at the club until 2012.
