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 quite frankly laughable! It is the silly season after all!
17:00 – Night!
Thats me done for today, I’m off home to tan my moobs.
16:45- Daily News
Todays daily news show is brought to you by the beautiful Tom Dutton. Tom brings you the latest news and transfer gossip from today. Basically he reads out my work. And he’s bloody good at it too.
16:15 – Ryan Sessegnon
Liverpool are set to miss out on Fulham midfielder Ryan Sessegnon after it was revealed he is set to sign a new contract over the next few weeks.
Sessegnon is regarded very highly and his blistering pace would be an asset to any team but even more so to Liverpool as the club look to continue their search for Mane and Salah back ups.
The Times also report Tom Cairney has agreed to sign a new contract with the cottagers.
15:22 – Sadio Mane
Not so much news but a gentle reminder that today marks two years since Liverpool signed Sadio Mane from Southampton. A fee which was initially laughed at by some Liverpool fans while others were left FUMING.
As you can imagine, some of the replies in the thread are brilliant.
“Another flop” and “the senegalese Victor Moses” my personal favourites.
73 apps 33 goals 17 assists
Sadio Mane's number is, of course, t̶w̶e̶n̶t̶y̶-̶n̶i̶n̶e̶ 1⃣9⃣! pic.twitter.com/G2FvSUUp8z

14:46 – Timo Werner
Just incase you didn’t know, Germany are out of the World Cup.
One of the players going home early is Timo Werner. The RB Leipzig forward has been linked with Liverpool relentlessly over the past 12 months but he has failed to impress at all during Germany’s recent campaign.
In his defence, the only decent part of Germany this summer was Joachim Lowe playing scratch and sniff with his ball bag. He had a lot to compete with.
HITC are suggesting that Timo Werner has not only failed to impress Germany fans but he may have failed in his quest to impress the likes of Liverpool and Spurs.
Werner didn’t score a goal, which is dead annoying, I tipped him to be top goal scorer. Don’t gamble kids. He didn’t even get an assist. What a waste, he may as well be English.
I reckon he just missed Naby Keita supplying him tbh.
14:32 – Ings off to Turkey?
We brought you news earlier that Burnley aren’t looking to sign their former player Danny Ings as they set out to conquer Europe, well, the Europa League, well, Scotland actually. Their first game is against Aberdeen, buzzing.
However, one side that could be interested is Turkish side Fernerbache. Sport Witness who are citing Turkish newspaper AMK Spor, suggest that sporting director Damien Comolli is in talks with both Liverpool and Ings.
Seems plausible I suppose, Ings wants to leave, its from a Turkish paper, Comolli used to work for Liverpool.
Enjoy your new tan Danny.
12:15 – Ings won’t be returning to Burnley
Reports earlier in the week suggested that Burnley where interested in re-signing former striker Danny Ings.
Ings is expected to leave Merseyside this summer after struggling this season. The striker joined from Burnley in 2015 but has had injuries problems leaving him out of the team and although Klopp would like to keep him, Ings had decided to go in search of regularly first team football. Who can blame him.
However teamtalk.com are reporting that a return to Burnley is not on the cards.
11:55 – Strurridge price slashed?
So yeah Sturridge, remember him? So do we, the poor fella. Turkish Football are reporting that his current valuation has been slashed as Liverpool are yet to receive any offers for the forward. Sturridge has been linked with a move to Turkey recently with Besiktas and Fernabache reportedly interested.
11:42 – Solanke fee agreed!
I read that out in the office and the lads immediately thought we had sold him. Don’t worry, we’ve just agreed a fee with Chelsea rather than taking the argument to a tribunal.
The Liverpool Echo report that Liverpool valued Solanke at around £3m, where as Chelsea valued him at around £10m.
Navigate your way around the adverts and videos and you’ll get the full story!
10:43 – SHAQIRI, SHAQIRI!
If you didn’t read that in they style of Christina Aguilera then there’s something wrong with you…..
For some strange reason thesportreview have decided to cite Duncan Castles, everyones favourite bellend. Speaking on the Transfer Window podcast, Castles broke some very interesting news regarding Shaqiri “He is a player they have tried to sign in the past,”
“Liverpool tend to identify players on statistical performance in the field. Once they’ve identified them they pursue them for some time and eventually get them. Salah and Mane is proof of that.”
Yeah thanks for that bit of insight, something we’ve all known for ages.
On a serious note, it would be nice to get your thoughts on Shaqiri and if you think he would be a good fit for this Liverpool side.
10:27 – Kun Temenuzhkov
Let’s just call him Kun for now. Kun is a highly rated forward currently at Leeds United, formerly of Barcelona. According to a Bulgarian journalist Kun is one of the hottest prospects Bulgaria have had for sometime.
thisisfutbol also report that Kun’s style of play has been compared to that of a certain Luis Suarez, who incidentally is also his idol.
At 18 years of age he’s basically he’s a young Suarez that doesn’t bite people. I’m fine with that.
10:18 – The CHO-sen one……
Terrible pun. It will all make sense in a moment. Liverpool fans have dreamt of a new goalkeeper since Karius decided he was best mates with Benzema and pretty much anyone that can save a ball has been linked with the reds.
Anyway the latest name is Cho Hyun-woo, South Korea’s number one. Now the pun makes sense, right? According to live4liverpool there are a number of fans that want him through the door after impressing in the World Cup.
I say a few fans, some people on Twitter said it.
Don’t really see it myself.
10:06 – Marko Gruijc
Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic could be about to make a move to Cardiff City permanently. Grujic spent last season on loan at Cardiff and it seems the club are keen to re-sign the Serbian for the 2018/19 season according to the BBC.
