Liverpool reportedly ready £30m bid for Anzhi Makhachkala midfielder Willian.

Liverpool are reportedly readying a bid for Anzhi Makhachkala midfielder Willian.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has so far seen his two major summer transfer hopes dashed as Henrikh Mkhitaryan preferred a switch to Borussia Dortmund and Diego Costa opted to remain with Atletico Madrid.

However, Rodgers feels that he can capitalise on the Russians' financial problems by lodging a £30m for the Brazilian playmaker, according to The Telegraph.

Anzhi owner Suleiman Kerimov has made the entire first-team squad available for transfer after deciding to drastically cut costs at Anzhi-Arena.

It is believed that the Reds owners Fenway Sports Group have sanctioned the big-money move, regardless of the future of striker Luis Suarez.

Willian only moved from Shakhtar Donetsk in January, but the Reds are confident of striking a deal for the 25-year-old.
