Latest Liverpool Transfer News – Alisson booked for Reds medical on Thursday
All Liverpool FC Transfer News sources sprung into action on Wednesday as the Reds moved closer to securing a world record deal for Brazilian shot-stopper Alisson Becker. The ace goalkeeper is believed to have cut short his family holiday to travel to Merseyside where he will undergo a rigorous medical and sign a lucrative six-year contract with the Premier League giants.
To add to this Liverpool News, Alisson is in line to become the most expensive goalkeeper in the history of football as Liverpool have agreed a deal worth €75 million with AS Roma. It will take Liverpool’s summer spending beyond £150m after already signing Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and bringing Naby Keita after agreeing his deal last summer.
The goalkeeping position has loprng been a problem area for Liverpool as was also illustrated by Loris Karius’ highly publicized blunders in May’s Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev.
Liverpool FC Transfer News – Ben Woodburn off to Championship on loan
In more Liverpool Latest Transfer News, club starlet Ben Woodburn is being pursued by Championship outfit Sheffield United who want to bring him on loan for the next season. Blades boss Chris Wilder is keen to add to his squad and has already registered his interest with Anfield top brass over Woodburn.
He told the Sheffield Star: “Decisions are being made regarding players who have come back to their Premier League clubs. They’ve come back and we’ve registered interest with some.”
To add to this Liverpool FC Latest News, Woodburn is being eyed as a replacement for David Brooks, who left Sheffield United to join Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth in an £11million deal recently.
Liverpool Latest Transfer News – Deal agreed for Domagoj Vida
Yet another in a long list of Liverpool FC Transfer Rumours is that the Reds have reportedly had a £20million bid accepted by Besiktas for Croatian World Cup hero Domagoj Vida. Although it is being touted that Alisson’s impending arrival will be the end of Liverpool’s transfer activity this summer, there have also been conflicting reports about Klopp looking to bring in a new centre-back as cover for the injury prone duo of Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip.
The source of this Liverpool FC News involving Vida is Turkish publication Aksam which has claimed that Liverpool have submitted a £20m bid for Vida and have seen it accepted. Besiktas have been rejecting bids on the basis that they weren’t meeting the £30m valuation but the Reds’ offer has allegedly been deemed acceptable by the Turkish giants.
Vida could join his national team defensive partner Dejan Lovren at Melwood this season and his arrival would see the depth in quality at the back bolstered significantly.
Liverpool FC News – Ox to miss the entirety of 2018/19 campaign
While the Liverpool fans rejoiced at the club agreeing a deal to bring in Alisson, Klopp delivered a big dampener as he declared that midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to be out for a long period of time, which basically means that the 24-year-old will miss out on the entirety of 2018/19 season. Klopp further added in this Liverpool News that it will be a bonus if Chamberlain becomes available to play at any stage of the next season.
The midfielder, who was signed on from Arsenal last summer, was playing the best football of his life when he got injured during the Champions League semi-final against AS Roma in April earlier this year. He has been out ever since and was even forced to miss England’s World Cup in Russia this summer.
Liverpool FC Latest News – Fekir highly unlikely now
This particular LFC Transfer News might not please the Anfield faithful as reports have emerged that Alisson’s arrival for a world-record fee will mean the club will not back to resurrecting a deal for Nabil Fekir this summer. Earlier this month, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas had hinted that Klopp and Liverpool might come back in for the 24-year-old star and even went on record to admit that Fekir himself is desperate to join last season Champions League finalists.
To add to this Liverpool Transfer News Now and LFC News, a section of French media had also indicated that Liverpool reportedly wanted to restructure the deal for Fekir to reflect their concerns about his knee issue, but Lyon rejected that proposal and talks broke down. The situation has now changed further as Alisson’s arrival will see Liverpool’s spending this summer reach £176m after Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri have also joined the club.
Fekir would have been hoping to be the fifth summer signing, but Liverpool have also invested in their current squad by handing Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino new long-term deals.
