16:40 – Gini Wijnaldum being targeted by former manager
Gini is said to be the main target for former manager Philip Cocu. The Dutchman played under Cocu at PSV and was given the captain’s armband by him, now manager of Fenerbache it is said that he wants Wijnaldum to join him in Turkey. This report comes from Turkish news outlet A Spor.
Wijnaldum was a crucial member of our midfield last season and it would be a shame to see him go, just because we have bought in Fabinho and Keita doesn’t mean we should get rid of any players as it means a better squad depth. Hopefully Gini isn’t tempted by a move to turkey and will stay with us.

13:20 – Harry Wilson set for loan move
Winger Harry Wilson has been talked about a lot since joining back up with Liverpool for pre-season and it is looking likely that he is going to be signing a new contract. However, Paul Joyce has also said that although the winger will be getting a new deal he is more than likely going out on loan again this year. A lot of clubs are interested in snapping up the youngster who is in high demand at the minute but I can’t help but feel that he should be given a chance in a Red shirt this season.
Harry Wilson to sign new Liverpool contract. Loan move likely with interest from Aston Villa, Leeds, Derby, Stoke, Hull, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Preston, QPR, Reading, Swansea and WBA and others

11:00 – James Pearce confirms that Liverpool not interested in Dybala
Looks like I spoke too soon ey.
James Pearce has broken hearts again this morning by confirming that Liverpool are not interested in Paulo Dybala. Speaking in the The Liverpool Echo this morning he said “Liverpool have no intention of pursuing a deal for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala”.
Hear that? That is the sound of thousands of Liverpool fans hearts breaking reading that news. It was always going to be a very long shot that we would get a player like him to join from Juventus but you can’t help but want to think that it is possible, especially with some of the players we have signed and the way things are going at the club at the minute. Guess we’ll just have to keep hoping that the Fekir deal is still in place.
