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.
15:48 – The Danny Ings Blog
Yep, more on Ings. It has now been reported that Newcastle have joined Crystal Palace and Southampton in the race for Danny Ings.
Good news for Liverpool I suppose, we could potentially start off a bidding war. No one has ever denied the quality of Danny Ings, his injuries have been a concern but his importance to teams such as Southampton and Newcastle could prove to be significant.
13:34 – You guessed it…
Even more Danny Ings talk! The latest development is that Southampton are now favourites to sign Danny Ings but will have to pay £20m to deter any interest from Crystal Palace.
Thats According to The Mirror anyway…..

12:43 – More Danny Ings
Read Crystal Palace confirm that Palace are the favourites to sign Danny Ings ahead of other Premier League competition including Southampton.
There is little time for a deal to be concluded for Danny Ings with the window closing at 5pm tomorrow.
Where would you like to see Ings play next season?
9:50 – Klopp say’s Ings options are ‘still open’
This time last week Danny Ings move away from Anfield was pretty much certain with a number of clubs interested in the striker with Crystal Palace favourites to sign him. The striker featured against Torino last night and afterwards Klopp told the Express along with other journalists “It’s all open, what can I say? You have to wait,”
With the boss not giving anything away we’ll have to wait and see how this materialises but i’m sure Danny won’t want to leave without feeling like he has given it a good go at Anfield.
9:40 – Liverpool still trying for Nabil Fekir
Another day, another Fekir rumour.
Until the transfer window shuts tomorrow, this is all we are going to be talking about. We all know the saga with Fekir so there is no point in going over the details. Chelsea are reportedly after the Frenchman now and are expected to put a bid in for the player but a lot of news outlets including devonlive are reporting that Liverpool will try to hijack that bid to try and grab Fekir for a second time.
But Chelsea won’t give up though with Fekir French teammate Olivier Giroud and his Chelsea teammate Eden hazard trying to entice him to join them in London with Giroud saying “I spoke to him when we were together in the French national team, when his move to Liverpool fell through,’ Giroud told Foot Mercato. ‘Then we discussed Chelsea, and I even think that Eden said a couple of words to him”.
‘We would obviously welcome him, he is a super player, but I don’t know if this is something that could happen as the window closes on Thursday.’
I’m saying this deal won’t be dead until the window shuts tomorrow and with Klopp not giving anything away regarding transfers in his press conference, we’ll have to just sit tight and wait.
9:35 – The Skipper is back
Jordan Henderson also featured in the Reds win last night in his first game back since returning from World Cup duty with England. The midfielder also took to social media to show his appreciation for the support and i’m sure his caption pleased a lot of fans.
9:30 – Nice reception for Karius
Liverpool beat Torino 3-1 at Anfield last night in their final pre-season game before the season starts. New boy Alisson started in goal but was replaced by Loris Karius with 18 minutes to go and the reception he received was fantastic. The keeper also spent a lot of time after the game signing autographs and taking pictures, as did most of the squad, which was nice to see.
The German took to Instagram after the game to show his appreciation for the support he received.
Morning all, the transfer window shuts tomorrow and whilst majority of other clubs are still stressing about one or two more signings it’s fair to say Liverpool are feeling pretty laid back right now with only outgoings expected.
