Liverpool plan £12M swoop for West Brom striker Long

Liverpool are chasing West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long.

The Daily Star Sunday says the Reds are set to launch a £12million January bid for Long.

Even though West Bromwich Albion are riding high in the Premier League – and even though Long, 25, still has two-and-a-half years left on his contract – the striker would jump at the chance to move to Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers remains a fan of Long’s from his time managing Reading and the fact the Reds made a bid to sign him when Kenny Dalglish was in charge shows they have serious intentions.

Anfield chiefs have let Long’s advisors know they are interested, especially as his £25K-a-week wages fit well within their tight budget.
