Welcome to today’s Liverpool FC news and transfer latest live blog! We will keep you up to date with the latest gossip, rumours and of course any news which is just bullshit.  

17:03 – Alisson on a plane

Hard to talk about anything else really. Alisson has dominated everything today.

15:32 – Personal terms agreed! 

Inject this into every orifice!! The deal is looking ever closer. However, one thing we have learnt this summer is that nothing is complete until the medical has passed. Lets hope his knees aren’t dodgy!

12:16 – The Redmen TV reacts to the news that Liverpool have had a bid accepted!

11:46 – The moment we’ve all been waiting for.

Time to get excited, reds.

11:30 – End of Karius?

We could have all predicted this but signing Alisson could in fact spell the end for Karius at Liverpool Football Club. Thats according to The Guardian.

It was announced last week that Danny Ward would be given his chance at the number one spot, starting with Blackburn on Thursday night, but that could all change with the Alisson deal becoming ever more imminent. That could however leave Danny Ward as second choice, leaving Karius behind.

I’d either loan him to make mistakes or worldies at another club and hopefully put his price up a little. Failing that, if theres someone willing to buy him, just get rid.

11:21 – Here we go…..

Forgive me for being a little bit excited but this guy seems to know his stuff. It as also been reported in The Guardian that the deal is edging closer…

10:49 – Still haven’t signed Alisson….

Although reports from Italy on Twitter say that an agreement has been reached between the two clubs, hopefully its edging closer.

10:08 – LFC to pay full price?

Reports emerging from Italy suggest Liverpool are willing to pay the full asking price for Roma ‘keeper Alisson Becker.

Read Liverpool ave cited Italian journalist Il Messaggero who claims the reds have gone all out to get their target.This would mean Roma would receive around ?70m upfront and a further ?8m in bonuses.

We shall wait and see.

9:44 – Origi for the Toon?

Possibly, seems a rather tedious link to me but I could be wrong. A classic ‘striker needs game time’ married with ‘team needs striker’ rumour, one for the transfer window bingo.

What probably doesn’t help, the rumour has only come from Twitter.

Nothing concrete really, you could argue the case for possibly one or two out of Ings, Sturridge and Origi leaving this summer. Again, let me know you thoughts on Origi in the comments below.

My option for whats its worth is I’d keep Origi and sell Ings and Sturridge. I think we’d have enough depth with Firmino, Solanke, Brewster and Origi this season as they are all competing for one spec. Well three of them are competing for second choice but you get my point.

9:31 – Let’s talk Alisson

And why wouldn’t we after yesterdays emotional rollercoaster. Today if certainly going to be a day of refreshing Twitter and looking out for that Paul Joyce Tweet.

The Echo have turned to Jim Beglin for some quotes this morning and Beglin believes that Alisson has one specific reason he should choose Liverpool over Chelsea “For purely football reasons, if Alisson is undecided on where to move, he ought to recall the atmosphere at Anfield in April and imagine it backing his team. That may sway it.”

To be fair to Jim I think he may have a point, the lure of all the money and London can be an attractive prospect but money can’t buy hairs standing up on your neck, I know I’m being bias but I’m pretty sure repetitive chants on “Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea” won’t do that.

Alisson also received a rapturous applause when Brazil played Croatia at Anfield prior to the World Cup. Plus we have Champions League football. How the tables have turned.


9:15 – Sturridge wants to stay.

This actually broke last night but regardless I thought it was quite interesting. It appears Daniel Sturridge wants to stay at the club. Personally I’m a little surprised, not by his willingness or professionalism but more so because he was sent out on loan and his game time was limited.

Add to that the fact there’s a few more players he has to compete with this season and his injury record isn’t the best. I’d like to get to your thoughts on this? It’s one thing Sturridge wanting to stay but do you think Klopp will keep him? Again theres no doubting his ability but can you rely on him? Let me know.

Here’s what he had to say….

“I see myself staying at Liverpool, hopefully being part of the team week in, week out,” Sturridge told the Daily Mirror. “Preseason is going well, so for me it’s keeping my head down and building on that. I’m excited about the season ahead and it feels great to be back.

“Preseason has started well for me and the team. I am feeling great and can’t wait to get the season underway. We have the tour to come where we face some great teams like Man United, Man City and Dortmund.”

9:03 – Tuesday has a lot to live up to.

After all the excitement of people like various posts and journalists following footballers you could forgive us for getting a little giddy. Top that off with reports of Liverpool making a bid for Alisson from pretty much every reliable journalist in the North West, only to be shot down by Sky Bet, sorry I mean Sky News. Weird.

Yesterday also saw Awoniyi and Brewster sign new long term contracts at the club as well as Welsh youngster Harry Wilson go out on loan to Derby County.

Tuesday does in fact have a lot to live up to. Lets see whats in store.
