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.
11:43 – Charlie Adam talking about chips
Former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has dug out new Liverpool signing Xherdan Shaqiri after accusing him of not pulling his weight last season as Stoke were relegated to The Championship.
It appears Adam has become a little bitter and has accused Shaqiri of “Not turning up”.
Speaking on Talk Sport this morning Adam said “When the chips are down you look at your big players, you want your big players to bring magic in one moment in the season, and at times we felt like the so-called big players in the squad never turned up for us and never performed.
“Yeah, everybody else could help, but for all the plaudits to so-called bigger players we getting from certain members of the management staff last season – they weren’t producing.”
11:37 – Liverpool to sell number one ‘keeper?
It’s all happening for Danny Ward. After being named Liverpool’s number one we’ve been out and bought a new goalkeeper and he’s off to Leicester by the looks of things.
Partly feel sorry for him, but he deserves a big move.
Danny Ward set to miss #LFC game with Blackburn tonight – he had been down to start it.

11:30 – Sheffield United interested in Woodburn
Sheffield United have declared their interest in youngster Ben Woodburn and have identified him as an ideal replacement for David Brooks. According to The Mirror United manager Chris Wilder is looking to bolster his attack and Woodburn is amongst his list of targets.
I think it would be good for him to go and get some experience as it looks like he is not going to get much first team action for us this season and it would benefit him more rather than him playing for the U23’s.
11:03 – Alisson in Liverpool for Medical Today! | #LFC Transfer News LIVE

10:45 – Moreno ‘proud’ to captain Liverpool against Chester
The left-back is currently preparing for his fifth campaign with the Reds and he has recalled that captaining the team against Chester was his proudest moment in a Liverpool shirt.
Speaking to Liverpool FC he said ” It was one of the best moments I’ve enjoyed here at the club, being able to lead the team out, wearing the captain’s armband on that shirt with that badge. It’s something that I’ll remember my whole life. All my family and friends were really happy for me”.
9:30 – Vida bid accepted???
Reports from Turkish newspaper Askam are reporting that the reds have had a 20 million pound bid accepted by Besiktas for defender Domagoj Vida. The Turkish paper are claiming that the bid has been accepted and that Besiktas are going to allow the player to speak to Liverpool to agree personal terms.
I’m not sure how true this is and personally I don’t think Klopp is looking to bring in another centre-back this summer as all the links have been false so far. However, we didn’t think we would get Alisson and it is up in the air about Fekir at the minute so who knows what could happen. Maybe Dejan can pull a Bobby and convince him to come?
9:15 – Alisson could be the final signing of the window
Reports late last night and this morning suggest that the 66 million goalkeeper could be our final signing of the summer meaning the Fekir deal could be dead. According to The Mirror they still think the Fekir deal is on however reports from the DailyMail are saying it is over, so I guess it’s it’s a waiting game for us now.
We where in a similar position last year with Van Dijk and we ended up signing him so i’m not ruling anything out yet, the reports from numerous journalists and media outlets still suggest we are interested so i’m not giving up until the window closes and especially with the news that OX could be out for the whole of next season, we need that other attacking option in my opinion.
