Goal summarises the biggest transfer talk involving Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp plans for another summer of spending on Merseyside
LIVERPOOL OFFER FOR CORREA
Liverpool have offered Atletico Madrid striker Angel Correa a five-year deal at Anfield, according to Foot Mercato.
Despite starting just 15 games last season for the Liga side, the Argentine struck eight goals and eight assists and will earn around £77,000 per week should he opt to move to the Premier League.
LAZIO LOOK AT LUCAS
Lazio are keen to replace Milan-bounce Lucas Biglia with Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva, says Calciomercato.
The Brazilian has slipped down the pecking order at Anfield and has just 12 months remaining on his contract with the Reds.
ARSENAL JOIN VAN DIJK HUNT
Arsenal are ready to battle Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City for Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, claims The Sun.
The Dutch centre-half has emerged as one of the most sought-after talents in the Premier League, with big-money bids being readied from across the division.
LIVERPOOL KEEN ON CORREA
Liverpool are mulling over a move for Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa, according to Foot Mercato.
A £25 million move has been mooted, but the Argentine is looking for more money than the Reds are prepared to offer at this stage.
JUVENTUS STILL CHASING CAN
Juventus remain interested in signing Liverpool midfielder Emre Can during the summer transfer window, reports Gazzetta dello Sport .
Can, along with Paris Saint-Germain’s Blaise Matuidi, is a leading option to improve Juve’s central midfield, with the club also eyeing deals for Douglas Costa and Federico Bernardeschi.
MARSEILLE KEEN ON DEMBELE
Marseille have made in-demand Celtic striker Moussa Dembele their No.1 summer transfer target, according to Sky Sports .
Dembele proved a revelation during his debut season at Celtic last term and was wanted by Chelsea during the January transfer window.
Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United have also previously shown an interest in Dembele, with Marseille likely to face fierce competition for the Frenchman if they make a concerted move.
DUO CHASE LIVERPOOL WINGER ON LOAN
Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo is a loan target for north-east rivals Newcastle United and Middlesbrough, reports The Times .
Jurgen Klopp is reportedly willing to let Ojo head out on loan next season to build up his first-team experience after previous spells at Wigan and Wolves.
VAN DIJK TRYING TO FORCE LIVERPOOL MOVE
Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk has told the club he will only accept a move to Liverpool, according to the Mirror .
While Liverpool issued an apology to the Saints for improper contact with the defender and formally ended their pursuit, Jurgen Klopp has not abandoned hope of landing the centre-back.
With Manchester United and Chelsea seemingly out of the running, Southampton risk losing out on a £50 million fee and keeping a disgruntled player.
CELTA WANT LIVERPOOL TARGET
Celta Vigo are considering an approach for Borussia Dortmund winger Emre Mor, who has also been linked with Liverpool, according to Atlantico .
The Turkish teenager is highly rated but is tipped to leave Dortmund this summer, with Fenerbahce reportedly having already made a loan offer.
ARSENAL BLOCK ALEXIS & OX MOVES
Arsenal have made it clear that they will not sell Alexis Sanchez or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to a Premier League rival, reports the Daily Star .
Manchester City have been leading the hunt for Sanchez, while Oxlade-Chamberlain has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool.
PSG READY €80M COUTINHO OFFER
PSG will turn to Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho if they fail to sign Kylian Mbappe from Monaco, according to Le10sport .
Mbappe could stay at Monaco for another season, leaving PSG to look elsewhere for their big summer signing. The Ligue 1 club are prepared to spend €80 million (£70m) to bring the Brazilian to Paris, but Liverpool are likely to hold out for €100m.
LIVERPOOL COOL BALDE INTEREST
Liverpool have cooled their interest in signing Keita Balde from Lazio following previous reports of a £30 million bid being rejected, claims Calciomercato.com .
AC Milan have also ended their eagerness to sign the forward, who is out of contract in a year’s time, while Juventus are reportedly still keen on Balde.
LIVERPOOL IN FOR ARGENTINE DEFENDER
Liverpool have lodged a £14.9 million bid in an effort to sign Emanuel Mammana from Lyon, The Sport Review claims.
The report claims Jurgen Klopp is keen to add reinforcements to his defensive line and is ready to offer the 21-year-old a five-year contract worth £2.8m per season.
The three-time capped Argentina international is said to be awaiting permission to discuss personal terms with the Anfield side.
KEITA WANTS TO JOIN LIVERPOOL
RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita wants to join Liverpool, but the Reds may be forced to wait for the end of the transfer window, according to The Independent
The Bundesliga club have told Liverpool they will have to pay €70m for Keita, with Jurgen Klopp willing to be patient in order to land his man.
LIVERPOOL PLAN RICO BID
Liverpool are planning a €12 million bid for Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico, according to ABC de Sevilla .
The Spain international has a €30m release clause, but the Reds are hopeful they can tempt the Liga side to sell for less.
ARSENAL PLOT €80M SPORTING RAID
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering an €80 million (£70.2m) double raid on Sporting Lisbon for Gelson Martins and Carvalho, according to A Bola, via the Mirror .
Wenger is already close to adding Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette to his squad , and is also keen on winger Martins, who has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United, and midfielder Carvalho.
KEITA TO HOLD FUTURE TALKS
Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to step up their pursuit of Naby Keita as the midfielder prepares to hold talks with RB Leipzig regarding his future, The Times reports.
Keita is a prime target for Klopp as he looks to improve his squad and is prepared to break the club’s transfer record in order to bring the Guinea international to Anfield.
Leipzig don’t want to sell Keita and reportedly value the versatile midfielder in the €80 million bracket, while Liverpool have offered him a £130,000 a week contract.
LIVERPOOL QUOTE €100M FOR COUTINHO
Liverpool have told Paris Saint-Germain that Philippe Coutinho will cost €100 million (£87m) after knocking back an enquiry for their Brazilian star, The Mirror reports.
PSG have joined Barcelona in showing an interest in the former Inter Milan playmaker, but Liverpool have no intention of selling during the transfer window and have tried to deter suitors by slapping a huge price tag on Coutinho.
LIVERPOOL BLOCK STURRIDGE EXIT
Daniel Sturridge won’t be allowed to leave Liverpool this summer because of how much it will cost to sign a replacement striker, according to the Sunday Mirror .
Paris Saint-Germain and West Ham have been linked with Sturridge, but only a huge offer will persuade manager Jurgen Klopp to sell the England international.
OX TO SIT OUT ARSENAL CONTRACT
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is prepared to wait out the final year of his contract and leave Arsenal on a free next summer, report The Times .
The England international was made a take-it-or-leave-it offer by the Gunners, amid interest from Liverpool, but he has rejected it, leading to the prospect of Arsenal losing a potentially valuable star for nothing in 2018.
