Liverpool transfer news.
Double blow for Arsenal as Liverpool plot record-breaking transfer deal.
Ten biggest January transfers so far this year, with Arsenal, Liverpool, Man United and Wilfried Bony.
Despite his young age the midfielder has broken into Mick McCarthy’s first team this season and so far in 2014/15 has made 18 appearances in all competitions for the Championship side.
Bishop is the second talented youngster to attract the interest of the Premier League elite in recent times, with defender Tyrone Mings wanted by Arsenal as they look to bolster their back line.
The Gunners have also shown interest in Mings’ teenage teammate – along with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur – but the Reds have made the first move and are the favourites to secure his signature.
Bishop is a product of the Tractor Boys’ youth academy, breaking into the first team this season after impressing for the Under-18s.
