Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is joining the battle for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Daily Star says Wanyama, 22, was thought to be close to signing for Southampton in a £12m transfer, having rejected a new Parkhead contract.

But that move has stalled and Rodgers is now eyeing the Kenya international as he seeks to shake-up his midfield stocks.

Jordan Henderson and Jonjo Shelvey could both be sold to fund a bid for Wanyama.
