£9 million striker adds to Liverpool’s list of deadline day rejections

Kevin Doyle has emerged as the latest striker Liverpool failed to sign on transfer deadline day, according to the News of the World.

The tabloid newspaper states that the Reds made a £9 million bid for the Republic of Ireland international, but were told he was not for sale at that price by Wolves.

This follows a string of reports that, desperate to bring in back up for Fernando Torres, Roy Hodgson was told similar about West Ham’s Carlton Cole and Fulham’s Bobby Zamora.

Bayern Munich also rejected advances from the Reds for Mario Gomez, who wanted to move to Anfield on a season-long loan deal and Hodgson even made enquiries about former Red Peter Crouch.

One player whose club accepted an offer from Liverpool is Rafael van der Vaart, who completed a sensational switch from Real Madrid to Tottenham late on Tuesday evening.

With the choice between White Hart Lane and Anfield, the Dutchman chose the former, who now have Champions League football as a big pull.

Hodgson is now expected to enter back into the transfer market to bring in a new striker when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Gomez is still thought to be top of his list and Liverpool will wait to see how much Bayern play the striker before considering their options.
