17:00 – Harry Wilson complete Derby County move

Harry Wilson has today completed a season-long loan move to Derby County. The youngster recently signed a five year deal with the club and was linked with a move to a number of clubs. He has decided to move to Derby with Frank Lampard probably playing a key role. They kick off their Championship season against Reading on August 3rd.

 

Liverpool Make £62m World Record Bid For Alisson! | LFC Breaking Transfer News

16:17 – Live in Dublin

Seems an appropriate time to plug our live show in Dublin, Alisson might be there. Info below.

16:02- Liverpool GK coach likes Alisson news!

Yep! Liverpool coach John Achterberg liked our post on Instagram! Surely he shouldn’t be doing that? Fair play for him being excited too!

3:46 – Lovren one of the best in the world – Confirmed.

Well its not but Dejan Lovren has made the World Cup team of the year! Good on him!

All afternoon – Alisson

Well how long have you got? Here’s a bunch of tweets.

 

12:40 – Wilson joins Derby

It seems the deal for Harry Wilson to Derby is pretty much done. Neil Jones of Goal.com also says others could be on their way out of Anfield.

12:11 – Wilson, Gini and Ings all miss training.

Read into this what you will. Wilson, supposedly going out on loan. Ings, told he can leave. Gini, rumoured interest from his former manager at Fernabache. OR he could just be injured/ill.

Probably doesn’t help his cause that Fabinho and Keita have come in but surely we need him for depth. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

11:56 – Lyon Issue Deadline Over Fekir & Rumours Intensify Over Alisson Bid! | LFC Transfer News Chris is here with all the news and rumours for 17th July including the rumours for Fekir and Alisson!

 

11:40 – Wilson close to joining Derby on loan After signing a five year deal with the Reds last week it is now reported that Wilson has agreed to join Frank Lampard’s Derby County on loan for the 2018/19 season. The Liverpool Echo report that the deal could be finalised in the next 48 hours, a number of clubs where interested in the youngster but it seems that he would prefer a move to Derby to be coached by former England midfielder Lampard.

I would have liked to have seen Wilson battle it out for a spot in the team next season but Klopp clearly wants to give him more time in the Championship.

11:30 – Maddock hints at Liverpool double transfer David Maddock has again got Liverpool fans on the edge of their seat after this tweet he sent out this morning

Does that mean Alisson and Fekir are done deals then? Let’s hope so

11:15 – Nigerian winger speaks out about Liverpool move Nigerian winger Moses Simon has spoken out about the interest from Liverpool to Liverpool Echo saying “For now i’m still a player of KAA Gent, there was interest from Liverpool but nothing is concrete for now” The winger appeared for Nigeria in the World Cup and caught the eye of a few people “I’m currently in Holland with the rest of the squad and we are getting ready for the new season”.

Not much else has been said about the player and with the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri, this may just be another one of those players that is linked with us and nothing ever happens again.

10:57 – Shaqiri’s first day Says it on the tin really. Here you go….

10:40 – Southampton ‘not interested’ in Ings Reports over the weekend where suggesting that Southampton were lining up a 10 million pound bid for striker Danny Ings. However this morning reports from Sportsmole and The Daily Echo say that the Saints aren’t interested in bringing Ings back to the South Coast where he grew up. Southampton have already secured the signings of a number of players and it said that Mark Hughes isn’t interested in bringing in the striker.

Not sure how true these reports are but i’ve just got to say, how cheeky are Southampton trying to snatch our players…   10:14 – No contact with Roma Didn’t take long did it. Our mate Ian Doyle has reported on The Liverpool Echo advert minefield, sponsored by pretty much everyone. That there has been no contact with Roma and they shouldn’t expect one as it stands. “There has been no contact with Roma and as yet no change in the Reds’ stance from earlier this year when they informed Alisson’s representatives not to expect a bid this summer.” It’s fair to say is hasn’t gone down well. Luckily for Ian, he has a sense of humour.

 

10:01 – AND ITS LIVEEE!

Liverpool’s training session that is. 11am this morning, for half an hour. Link below. https://www.youtube.com/user/LiverpoolFC

9:57 – Robertson on USA The best left back in the world Andrew Robertson has spoken ahead of Liverpool’s tour of America. The young Scot believes that the trip to the ‘other side of the pond’ is key preparation ahead of the upcoming Premier League season.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: “It’ll be something new for me, I’ve never been to America. “I’m looking forward to it, we’ve got three big games over there and I’m sure the stadiums will be packed and it’ll be brilliant. “We’ve got games over here first, so we’ll concentrate on them and get our fitness up and then in America we’ll probably turn it up a bit. “Three big games and I’m sure the training in the heat will be big for us and then we’re not that far away from the start of the season.”

Best pack your factor 50 lad.

9:44 – Alisson…..again

Yep, thats right, we’re going to talk Alisson. If you didn’t think Fekir smiling at someone shouting Liverpool was convincing well the Alisson deal has been well and truly top trumped! Get this, his agent liked an Instagram post in which someone edited Alisson in a half Liverpool/Roma top. What more could you possibly want? I for one am convinced this deal is done…..

Seriously though, there have also been reports that Liverpool are willing to make a bid for Alisson. Talk Football have cited The Express to state that Real Madrid have pulled out of the running and it is between Liverpool and Chelsea. Presumably because Courtios to Real Madrid could be on the cards.

It has also been reported that Alisson has removed Roma from his instagram bio. Much like when you announce your ‘Single’ on Facebook. DM me hun.

9:24 – Fekir…..again

I mean it wouldn’t be much of a transfer rumour blog if we didn’t start with Nabil Fekir now would it. Yesterday he was seen smiling back at a fan shouting “Liverpool” which pretty much confirms the deal. Today The Mirror have reported that a deadline has been set by Lyon, meaning Liverpool have just until the end of the month to get something sorted out.

Which then only leaves two weeks of the window left for an alternative to be found. But, check this out for a mental plot twist…Liverpool are trying to set up a deal that means if Fekir occurs a serious injury we can send him back to Lyon! Honestly, I’m not joking. But the guy who Tweeted it just might be. If you click on the link from ‘Manuel Labor’ in his bio you’ll see his website link is a load of shite too. 10/10 for trying though.

9:06 – Morning. Good morning, Reds. We are another step closer to the Premier League starting and another step closer to the window closing. Which hopefully means we will see some action soon! The World Cup is also done and dusted so players will either be back at their clubs training or on holiday.

Or if they are anything like Xherdan Shaqiri they will just biff off their holiday and sign for the reds. I’m looking at you Nabil and Alisson.

Before we kick of todays blog I’d be interested to know your thoughts on this window. Who are you hopeful of signing? What would make it a good window, don’t say Messi, I know that. Are there any alternatives that haven’t been mentioned? Let me know in the comments.
