Liverpool reportedly wish to wrap up a move for Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing by the end of the week.

The left-sided player has been linked with a transfer away from the Birmingham-based club for some time now, with his recent admission of wanting to play in Europe only fuelling the flames of speculation.

Now the News of the World reports that the Reds are keen on tying up a £15 million move for the midfielder by the end of the week.
