In Sunday’s Liverpool Roundup: Liverpool are not signing Manuel Locatelli, Adama Traore is ‘perfect’ for Liverpool and the price for Renato Sanches has been named.
According to German news outlet Sport1, Jurgen Klopp is interested in Florian Neuhaus but has to make space to sign the 24-year-old.
The German coach ‘definitely’ wants to sign him but according to Plettenberg and Sport1, the ace is set to stay in the Bundesliga for the 2021/22 season.
The player would reportedly cost around €40m which isn’t too much but it’s impossible to tell how much FSG have given Michael Edwards to work with at this point.
Fabrizio Romano says Liverpool are not in the race to sign Manuel Locatelli from Sassuolo.
He wrote on Twitter: “To be clear. Liverpool are NOT in the race.”
This followed a recent claim from Gazzetta dello Sport (print edition, July 30, page 28) that Liverpool are now in the race to sign Manuel Locatelli.
Jurgen Klopp thinks that Adama Traore would be perfect for Liverpool, according to Fabrizio Romano.
“There are a lot of links about him. We’re talking about a fantastic player,” he said on Don Robbie’s YouTube channel, via The Sport Review.
“The links about Liverpool are because Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the player. He thinks Traore would be perfect for Liverpool.”
Saul’s agents, ICM Stellar Sports, arrived in the UK today to hash out their client’s future with Liverpool and Manchester United reportedly in pole position.
The Mirror’s Tom Hopkinson reports that Saul Niguez hopes to have his future sorted out this week and British giants Liverpool and Manchester United are in pole position.
The report goes on to claim that the player’s agents flew into the UK today to negotiate on behalf of Atletico Madrid – ICM Stellar Sports have been given the blessing of Atletico Madrid bigwigs to negotiate a move for their man.
Saul reportedly earns £207,000/week which could be an issue for Liverpool.
According to a curious article from ESPN’s Mark Ogden, Liverpool are willing to listen to offers for Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Jurgen Klopp just lost Georginio Wijnaldum for free to PSG and if he were to sell the duo, who cost the Reds a combined £92m, he would recoup a fraction of that value.
In pre-season, Keita has been Liverpool’s best player and while many fans are restraining themselves from getting carried away as we have been down this road before, he looks very good.
Liverpool and Arsenal are both looking to sign a new central midfielder this summer and have reportedly been told to pay €35m if they want Renato Sanches.
Barcelona don’t have the funds to sign the midfielder, Bayern Munich sold him to Swansea City after it didn’t work out for him in Bavaria and Liverpool have had their fill of injury-prone midfielders.
