Liverpool are interested in Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici after having a £2 million bid for Brad Jones turned down by Middlesbrough, according to the Mirror.

Boro have set their valuation of Jones at around £3 million, which seems to have warded off interest from the Reds, who do not want to spend so much on a back up goalkeeper.

The Mirror believe Jones is willing to move to Anfield, even though he will be understudy to first choice Pepe Reina, but chairman Steve Gibson wants to hold on to the Australian.

And, with that, Roy Hodgson has revived the club’s interest in Jones’ compatriot Federici.

Rafael Benitez had previously enquired as to the 25-year-old’s availability but was similarly priced out of a move.

Now, though, Hodgson is expected to bid a similar amount to that on offer for Jones and is confident he will be able to do a deal as Federici has just one season to run on his contract at the Madejski Stadium.

Tottenham were interested in Federici in January, as well as Liverpool, and he admitted a desire to play in the top flight.

“I want to play in the Premier League and I believe I will one day – whether it is with Reading or somewhere else,” he said.
