Cesc Fabregas wanted by Liverpool... Reds join Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea in pursuit of Barcelona midfielder

Liverpool the latest
club to register
interest in Cesc Fabregas
Fabregas not wanted by new
Barcelona head coach Luis
Arsenal, Chelsea and
Manchester City also in
chase for his signature
Manchester United not back
in for him after being
rebuffed last year
Arsenal turn attention to
Germany international Sven
Liverpool also eye Adam
Lallana, Dejan Lovren and
Alberto Moreno
Liverpool are leading the chase to
sign £30million-rated Cesc
Fabregas who is determined to
return to England after Barcelona
made it clear they are willing to
sell him.
The relatively low fee for the 27-
year-old midfielder, who was
confirmed as part of Spain’s World
Cup squad on Saturday, will tempt
several Premier League clubs, but
the Anfield side have a real chance
of signing him because they are in
the Champions League next
Fabregas’s availability will also test
the willingness of Arsenal manager
Arsene Wenger, who has a
£100million transfer kitty, to return
for his former captain.

But Arsenal are poised to make a
move from Sven Bender, the 25-
year-old Borussia Dortmund mid-
fielder and with Mesut Ozil and
Santi Cazorla already in the usual
Fabregas role, the Gunners are
likely to strengthen with a more
defensive midfield player.
Arsenal have previously been
interested in Bender’s twin
brother, Lars, and bid £18m for him
last summer, only to be turned
down by Bayer Leverkusen.
Lars has since signed a new
contract and is currently injured
but Arsenal hope they can lure
Sven from Dortmund with a £15m
bid after he failed to make the
Germany World Cup squad.
Wenger had not previously ruled
out the return of Fabregas to the
club, having maintained a good
relationship with his former
captain despite the fact that some
supporters were unhappy with the
manner in which he left in 2011.

what to expect from England
However, Manchester City and
Chelsea are also likely to be
attracted by the fact that Fabregas
is available.
Brendan Rodgers’s ambitious
Liverpool have already signed
Rickie Lambert from Southampton
and are still chasing his team-
mates Dejan Lovren and Adam
Lallana. They have also shown an
interest in Sevilla full-back Alberto
Arsenal had a clause inserted in
the contract when Fabregas left for
£35m stating that Barcelona have
to inform them if he is sold so that
Arsenal could match any offer.
The Londoners would also share in
any possible profit that Barcelona
make over and above the fee of
£35m that they received when he
was transferred.
Barcelona, under new coach Luis
Enrique, are making a move for
Atletico Madrid midfield Koke, who
may cost up to £48m.
