Liverpool battling to convince Villa to part with Downing

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish faces a battle to land Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing.

The Sunday Mirror says Dalglish wants to build his team around predominantly British talent.

He broke the club's transfer record by buying Andy Carroll from Newcastle for £35million in January and has splashed out another £20million to bring in Jordan Henderson from Sunderland.

Downing is high on Dalglish's wish-list, although Aston Villa's resolve to keep the £15million-rated England winger has been stiffened by Ashley Young's departure to Manchester United.
