The Express reports that Brendan Rodgers is eyeing a £10million move for Hakan Calhanoglu - to stop the Hamburg midfielder moving to Bayer Leverkusen.

In what was a miserable season for the German club, Calhanoglu was a shining light, scoring 11 goals in 32 games.

Liverpool boss Rodgers has watched the 20-year-old in action during the season but will have to move quickly after Leverkusen declared publicly that Calhanoglu only wants to move to the BayArena.
