Liverpool fans, good morning and a very warm welcome to your daily news roundup.

We’re quickly approaching the last segment of the summer transfer window, meaning the rumours get more ridiculous than ever and clubs are busy trying to iron out any perceived flaws they might have within their squad.

With Liverpool having acquired seven points from a possible nine so far this campaign, Brendan Rodgers is sure to be happy with how things are going. Is he going to make any changes? Perhaps you can discern from the information below.

Mignolet and Cech

It was a tale of two goalkeepers last night as Liverpool salvaged a goalless draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Simon Mignolet, for all of his critics, was in fine form, as was Petr Cech, with the two stoppers the only reason neither side broke the deadlock. Following the game Mignolet revealed that he and Cech had enjoyed the struggle, asking one another why they hadn’t let at least one in.

"He asked me why I didn’t let one in, and I said the same to him!" Mignolet said.

The Belgian was widely slammed last season for his performances but looks to have got his career back on track, whilst Cech appears to have found his mojo once more after a difficult star to Arsenal life.

Balotelli medical

Elsewhere Mario Balotelli is all but guaranteed to be signing for AC Milan, with it said today he’s in Italy for a medical. The career U-turn looks to be what’s needed to save his ailing reputation, although the deal will only be a year-long loan to begin with.

If he impresses he might then be purchased permanently by Milan, though they’ll surely be worried over his consistency at this stage.

Carra on Balotelli

Lastly, and somewhat in-keeping with the theme from our second story, Jamie Carragher has questioned Liverpool’s decision to purchase Balotelli, stating that he still couldn’t believe they signed him.

The Anfield hero suggested that the quicker they moved the Italian on the better, with Daniel Sturridge coming back and Christian Benteke very much looking the part.
