Liverpool have had their £8million bid for Swansea City defender Ben Davies rejected, according to the Daily Mail.
Missing out on Moreno
Since seemingly losing out on Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno due to the £18million price-tag, Brendan Rogers turned his attention to his former club and tried to lure Davies to Anfield. However Swansea City regard the Welsh International in the region of £12million, and are firmly holding out for the cash, which has scared Tottenham off from purchasing the defender.
Davies made his debut in 2012 and was a vital part of the League Cup 2013 winning side, along with appearing in the Europa League seven times before the Welsh side were knocked out by Italian giants Napoli.
Rodgers' left-back woes
Liverpool played much of last season without a regular left-back as Jose Enrique spent most of the campaign on the sidelines plagued by various injuries. Youngster Jon Flanagan filled in for most of the season and did a fine job, however he prefers to play on his natural right-hand side.
There was speculation Liverpool were chasing former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole before he decided upon a move to AS Roma, and with The Reds seemingly missing out on Moreno, Rogers clearly thinks Davies is the next best target.
