Liverpool Plotting Aston Villa Raid

New Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson's desire to bring some of the best young British talent to Anfield could begin with a double swoop for Aston Villa duo Ashley Young and James Milner, with Dutchman Ryan Babel offered in part exchange.

While Hodgson will work on trying to keep the likes of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres at the club, he also knows that he needs to move to fast assemble a stronger squad and give them a decent amount of time to work together.

Reports suggest that he has already homed in on Milner and Young, two players who could also form a part of Fabio Capello's England rebuilding.

Babel has not exactly pulled up any trees since moving to Merseyside in 2007, and Hodgson hopes that by offering Villa a player and around £35m in cash he will be able prise the two young Three Lions away.
