According to the Daily Star, Liverpool are plotting a double swoop on Manchester City.

The Reds are hoping to sign James Milner on a free transfer when his contract expires in June, while Stevan Jovetic is also on their radar after reportedly being told he’s free to leave the Etihad.

Liverpool are apparently confident of beating Arsenal to Milner’s signature and will start the bidding for Jovetic at £16m.
