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.
16:10 – FEKIR SIGNS NEW DEAL WITH LYON!
It’s not Nabil its his brother. Get French Football Newsnearly gave me a heart attack. Lyon were keen to say this has nothing to do with Nabil and that the deal does not affect him.
“We extended his deal because of what he can bring on the pitch, not to influence Nabil. He is a player with precision, who can play in practically every attacking position. He started well this morning, with good physical tests.”

15:36 – Pearce shuts down rumours!
Are Liverpool getting a goalkeeper this summer? I’ve no idea, i’m getting a bit bored of all the rumours to be honest. Good job James Pearce is about. The latest link today was Barcelona back up Japser Cillenssen. Well forget about it!
Told that #LFC have zero interest in Barcelona keeper Jasper Cillessen – despite the recent speculation.

1:28 – Another Liverpool ladies addition
Good news on the Liverpool ladies front, they’ve added another player to the squad. The recent exodus has come as a bit of a shock to some fans, with the manager leaving first before he was swiftly followed by the likes of Caroline Weir and Gemma Bonner.
New manager Neil Redfearn isn’t messing around this summer and has just recruited Jasmine Matthews from Britol City. The 25 year-old defender has spent her whole career at Bristol City and is delighted with her move “It is a fantastic club with real ambitions to challenge for trophies so I am really excited for the future.”
Full story: Here
New season. New player. New number.

12:00 – Today’s news show is now available too!
11:50 – Julian Brandt linked
With the whole Nabil Fekir saga happening it is not surprising to see Klopp looking at other alternatives in case the deal does not go through. Today’s link is with Julien Brandt, the midfielder plays for Bayern Leverkusen and was picked over Leroy Sane to attend this summers world cup in Russia.
The report comes from https://tbrfootball.com but there is no fee mentioned, having not seen much of the player I don’t know how i would feel regarding the transfer but if Klopp likes him, why not go and get him.
10:55 – Lyon midfielder new contract could mean good news for Liverpool?
Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar has been tied down with a new five year contract meaning Lyon may well let Nabil Fekir leave.
The youngster is said to be the ‘Fekir replacement’ and him signing a new deal clears the way for Fekir to leave, hopefully his final destination ends up being Liverpool. There has been an ongoing saga between Liverpool and lyon over the player and I would just rather know now if we have any chance of signing him, if we don’t then we should move on look for other alternatives.
10:25 – Jasper Cillessen for 30 mil?
Reports from http://sportwitness.co.uk are saying that Liverpool may be able to capture Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen for around 30 million euros. The keeper is supposedly wanting to leave Barcelona in search of regular first team football and has interest from Liverpool, Chelsea and Napoli. The former Ajax man joined Barcelona in 2016 but has fell second to Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and is hoping to leave this summer to become number one somewhere else.
The previous update before this was regarding Donnarumma for 50 mil but I would much prefer Cillessen, he has experience playing for top teams like Ajax and Barcelona and for a much cheaper asking price he should be the keeper we go after.
10:15 – AC Milan set high asking price for keeper
As i mentioned yesterday Liverpool have been linked with Gianluigi Donnarumma with his agent supposedly offering him to both the Reds and Chelsea but reports from http://sempremilan.com/ are saying that Milan will take no less than 50 million Euros for the youngster. This is a huge asking price but also cheaper than what we would be paying for Alisson or Oblak. Should Liverpool pay 50 million euros for a young keeper with time to develop or should they buy experience?
10:00 – Pepijn Lijnders back in senior coaching role
Pep Lijnders has returned to the club after coaching NEC Nijmegen for the second half of last season. When speaking to https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/ Klopp said “It’s good. It’s very, very good. We sent him away to get very important experience and to have him back now feels fantastic”.
9:55 – Jamie Carragher back at Sky Sports
Some non transfer news for you, former Red Jamie Carragher is expected to make his comeback on Sky Sports next season. The former Reds defender was suspended due to an incident involving a Manchester United fan earlier this year but reports are suggesting the pundit will be back on Sky for the new season.
This is great news for a lot of fans as I always enjoyed watching Carragher on MNF and rightly deserves to be back on the show.
9:53 – Besiktas in for Sturridge?
Daniel Sturridge is back on Merseyside having spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom, but he may not be here for long.
Besiktas are supposedly interested in signing the forward and are said to have a 10 million bid ready to offer Liverpool for the Englishman. According to www.sportsmole.co.uk Liverpool are expected to recieve an offer in the coming weeks, we originally wanted 15 million for him but the Turkish side aren’t willing to play that therefore Liverpool may have to lower their asking price a bit to allow Sturridge to move for regular first team football.
He has been a solid player for us over the years but injuries have halted his full potential at the club and it may be the right time for him to move on.
9:45 – Liverpool linked with Malcolm
A new transfer target has popped up by the name of Malcolm. Playing for Bordeaux over in France the 21-year-old has been linked with a few clubs including Arsenal and Tottenham but football.london are reporting that Liverpool are now interested in signing the frontman.
His agent was suppose to be meeting with representatives from both Tottenham and Liverpool a few weeks ago but they didn’t seem to materialise so this may just be another player who Liverpool are linked with that have no chance of signing for the club this summer (because thats never happened before).
9:25 – Vida to Liverpool?
Reports in The Express suggest Liverpool could be lining up a bid for Croatian centre back Domagoj Vida. Turkish reporter Turgay Demir believes Liverpool are about to piss on the chips of Everton and bring Dejan Lovren’s national partner to Anfield.
“Everton and Liverpool have made an offer for Vida,” he told A Spor.
“€15m (£13m) has been proposed but Besiktas will not consider a bid below €20m (£18m).”
9:00 – Good morning
Good morning, reds! Well its going to be difficult to top Monday isn’t it! Actually if Mané signs a new contract and we sign a player, then that might just do it.
Anyway, I’m here to sprinkle some good news on your Tuesday morning, starting with Rebeca Tavares. Who is she? Well she is the wife of new Liverpool signing, Fabinho. Not only that, she has a strong social game. Those of you that follower on Instagram will be fully aware of her ‘banter’ (sorry) and her admiration of football!
Thank me later.
