Jacque Talbot, one of the more reliable voices in this space, has suggested that Liverpool’s hopes are far from being terminal following a series of meetings with the midfielder’s representatives ‘as far back as last year’.

That’s quite significant for us and goes some way to levelling the playing field should we commit to the opening blind of perhaps the biggest transfer poker game of the summer.
