Liverpool boss Rodgers doesn't want to lose Maxi

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers doesn't want to lose winger Maxi Rodriguez.

The Argentine is in talks with Newell's Old Boys.

"I would love to have him here as he is a very good player and would be very good for our squad - he will understand 120 per cent about the way I want us to play," said Rodgers, who hopes to conclude a deal for Roma's Fabio Borini in the next 48 hours.

"But sometimes there are issues that surround that; that is what I am speaking to him about. It has been difficult for his family (to settle).

"I have had a couple of real good conversations with him. I know his thoughts and how he is thinking. It was difficult for him last season. He probably felt that he should have played a lot more.

"We will hopefully see where he is at over the next couple of weeks and hopefully find a solution for him. But, like I say, sometimes there are other issues outside football."
