Liverpool FC Transfer News: Reds Commence Talks with Barcelona to Reacquire Midfielder

Liverpool have held discussions to re-acquire Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano as Brendan Rodgers looks to add depth to his squad.
Barcelona's Javier Mascherano could be making a Premier League comeback with Liverpool
The Reds are looking to add depth to their squad, anticipating a loaded schedule next season with Champions League qualification almost certain.
They have conceded 42 goals, thus far, in the Premier League in spite of leading in the title race with four more games to play, which is relatively higher than other top sides.
The defensive-minded Argentina international will definitely be a welcome addition, while being versatile enough to also play as a full-back, as he is currently doing in Catalunya.
His experience and veteran leadership could reinforce the stability of the Steven Gerrard-led locker room.
Barca are currently serving a transfer ban imposed by FIFA, but are confident that such decision will be overturned.
The Merseyside outfit are suggested to be willing to shell out £16million for Mascherano.
