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.
12:59 – Liverpool linked with Leon Bailey
“By who?” I hear you ask – well by the man himself.
In an interview with Kicker, the Jamaican winger is quoted as saying “there is concrete interest” when asked about a potential move to Roma, Chelsea or Liverpool.
After only signing for Leverkusen 18 months ago, Bailey was quickly identified as one of the top prospects in European football after he netted 12 goals and contributed with 6 assists last season.
Still only 20 years old, Bailey has his whole career ahead of him and if he becomes available then it is something Liverpool should 100% be looking at. After seeing how Jurgen Klopp turned Salah and Mane into world class wingers; Bailey could really take the next step under the guidance of the German manager on Merseyside.
12:45 – Lyon ‘ready to sell’ Fekir
Just when you thought all these stories had run their due course they’re prepared to make a better comeback than ABBA.
The Mirror are reporting; through L’Equipe, that Lyon are prepared to let their captain leave the club for the right offer…which would be around £60 million.
So for those of you who are still suffering from post Napoli hangovers (like Ross) then that means for Fekir to come to Liverpool, the reds would have to pay an extra five million on the fee that was previously agreed – after pulling the plug on the deal themselves.
Now in that time Fekir has become a World Cup winning player – but he contributed about as much as Mignolet did for Belgium. Sadly we don’t all live in the fantasy land of Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas so I wouldn’t get your hopes up about this deal being revived in this transfer window reds.
Afternoon all, the transfer window shuts in just three days for the first time ever! Whilst other clubs are still stressing about one or two more signings it’s fair to say that everyone at Liverpool is pretty laid back and we can only expect outgoings as opposed to any new signings.
