Liverpool are in contact with Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano about a return to Anfield. The Mirror says Mascherano, 29, could be available for around £9m as his contract only has a year left and his agents are sounding out potential moves in the Premier League.

The Argentine hinted over the weekend he could be on the move.

"It could be the last (game) for many players," he said.
