Liverpool ‘considering £7m move for Ba’

Liverpool are the latest club reported to be considering a bid for Newcastle striker Demba Ba.

There has been speculation about Ba’s future because of a clause in his contract which allows him to leave St James’ Park for £7m before the end of this month, and Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for him.

The Daily Mirror say new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also considering making an offer. 

The Guardian and Daily Mail both report Chelsea’s imminent bid for Southampton’s highly-rated 16-year-old defender Luke Shaw.

The Independent suggest Shaw may prefer a move to Arsenal, who are also believed to want him.

Meanwhile, the Mail claim that Tottenham, who are poised to appoint former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas as manager, are lining up a £10m move for Blues forward Daniel Sturridge.

The Mail also say Fulham boss Martin Jol wants to sign midfielder Tom Huddlestone from Tottenham.

Huddlestone played under Jol at Spurs and the Dutchman apparently sees him as a possible replacement for Danny Murphy.
