Liverpool could be close to completing a triple midfield swoop to bolster Jurgen Klopp’s engine room before the summer window shuts, while Friday’s Euro Paper Talk claims Tottenham could miss out to AC Milan in their bid to land a Barcelona centre-back.
KLOPP TIPPED TO MAKE TRIPLE MIDFIELD SIGNING
Liverpool could be on the verge of making a triple midfield signing following the latest reports from the European media.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has made it clear that he wants to add to his engine room before the summer transfer window shuts, having recently lost veteran duo Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to the Saudi Pro League.
And while it was thought that one more addition could be made to his squad, it appears that three potential signings could be on the cards.
Firstly, Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch remains of interest to the Anfield giants.
Bayern Insider podcast, relayed by Voetbal Primeur, states that the Netherlands star is still open to a departure this summer after a frustrating first campaign in Germany.
Klopp is known to be a big fan of the 21-year-old, who could be available for around £26million – if Bayern decide to cash in after one disappointing season.
Liverpool bid incoming for Brazilian midfielder
Meanwhile, reports from Brazil suggest Fluminense are preparing to receive an offer from Liverpool for the transfer of Andre.
Gazeta Esportiva states that the Reds have told the Brazilian outfit that an offer for the player is on way, with a bid of around €25m expected to be placed on the table.
The player himself is reported to be excited by the potential transfer, but will respect Fluminense’s decision whatever the eventual outcome.
The final proposed addition to Klopp’s squad is from a little closer to home as Liverpool look to complete a deal for Southampton impressive youngster Romeo Lavia.
The Merseysiders have been pushing hard to land the 19-year-old, having initially bid £37m for his services. A second offer of £41m was then submitted on Tuesday, although Saints are holding out for their £50m valuation.
Liverpool are confident, however, that the Championship side will buckle and accept their lower offer as the clock counts down to the window shutting.
