Liverpool accept bid after confirmation deal to sign attacker is complete

Liverpool have accepted a ‘seven-figure’ bid for Canadian left-wing Liam Millar as the 21-year-old gets set to join Switzerland outfit, Basel.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Millar is ‘expected’ to join the Swiss outfit after the club accepted a bid from Basel and after spending five years with the Merseyside outfit, his stay will soon come to an end.

Sam Carroll, the author of the report, claims that he is close to agreeing personal terms and Liverpool “are close to confirming a deal.”

Millar’s imminent exit comes shortly after Anfield Central was given confirmation that Fatawu Issahakue has joined the club despite suggestions otherwise.

There is also yet to be any movement on the midfield front as Liverpool stall on making their move to see what opportunities present themselves this summer.

Once the EUROs end, there is likely to be a lot more action on the transfer front as clubs wait to see what happens with players that are currently involved.
