Liverpool set for double January swoop

By James CarrollDate: 4/1/2007
Liverpool want to sign West Ham United midfielder Javier Mascherano and Blackburn Rovers' Lucas Neill during the January transfer window, reports the Liverpool Echo.
The Echo says that a board meeting today is expected to pave the way for the duo's arrivals, with manager Rafael Benitez hoping for a quick conclusion.
It's thought that Liverpool want to land Mascherano initially on-loan until the end of the season. The Argentina international has endured a torrid time at Upton Park following his high-profile transfer in the summer and has figured in just seven matches.
Benitez hopes that Mascherano can provide good cover for his central midfielders, with Momo Sissoko and Bolo Zenden still sidelined, and the Reds could look to make the move permanent in the summer if he adapts better at Anfield than he did at West Ham.
The Echo adds that Mascherano is keen to move to Liverpool and that the Reds have already agreed a deal with his representatives Media Sports Investments.
Meanwhile, Neill's long-awaited move to Anfield could finally become reality in the next few days. The Reds tried to signed the Aussie full-back in the summer, but could not agree a deal with Blackburn who wanted Stephen Warnock as part of any deal.
Liverpool are confident of landing the defender as his contract expires in the summer and, like Mascherano, the player wants to join Benitez's men.
