Schalke centre-back Kyriakos Papadopoulos is back on Liverpool's transfer radar.

The Daily Star says the Reds will reignite their bid to sign Papadopoulos before the transfer window closes on September 2. Boss Brendan Rodgers is a huge fan of the Greek star, although the Reds have been reluctant to pay the £13m Schalke wanted.

Sources close to Papadopoulos, 21, claim he is keen to leave the Bundesliga for Anfield, while Schalke have indicated they are now willing to thrash out a deal.
