The 2018/19 Premier League season is knocking on the door and transfer rumours are coming in thick and fast now. Champions League finalists Liverpool are no different as there has been no dearth of Liverpool Transfer News stories ever since the window began last month. Manager Jurgen Klopp is looking to challenge on multiple fronts in the upcoming season and is well aware of the fact that he needs to reinforce his squad to achieve the impossible. The weak areas have been identified and the arrival of players like Fabinho, Naby Keita and goalkeeper Alisson Becker is a testament to the fact.
While the majority of the club’s transfer business already done, there might just be a surprise in store in the coming days. Further, in more latest Liverpool FC Transfer News, with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino already tied down to new deals at the club, getting Sadio Mane to pledge his future also remains a priority for Klopp and sporting director Micheal Edwards.
Here, we look at Liverpool Transfer News Now and list down all the prominent latest Liverpool transfer rumours as on July 22, 2018.
Latest Liverpool Transfer News – 90% chance of Fekir staying at Lyon this summer
You read it right! It is Nabil Fekir who takes the headlines in today’s Liverpool FC Transfer News columns yet again. The latest update comes from Lyon’s outspoken president Jean-Michel Aulas who told Canal+ : “I do not think that Fekir will leave. He’s one of the best in France – and in the world, since he’s a world champion. He’s a Lyonais, so he’ll be there next season.
“Although in football, nothing is ever certain. I haven’t had the impression that he absolutely wants to leave.
“He’s 90% going to be at Lyon next season. If he hasn’t left by the end of July, he’ll stay. It’s not the size of the offer that will make us change our position on Fekir, but the wishes of Nabil himself.”
Not that it is needed but just to add to this Liverpool News, Fekir has been linked with a move to Anfield for almost two months now and came within a whisker of joining the club earlier in June. So much so that terms had already been agreed with the player and Liverpool’s in-house media channel LFCTV gad even filmed his unveiling before the plug was pulled at the very last moment after his medical.
Liverpool FC Transfer News – Klopp ‘likes’ Pulisic
A rather surprising name that features in Liverpool Latest Transfer News is Borussia Dortmund’s very highly-rated teenage winger Christian Pulisic. Addressing his first press conference after landing in America for the club’s pre-season tour, boss Jurgen Klopp made quite a few headlines when he admitted he’d like to bring Pulisic to Liverpool and refused to rule out a future move.
The USMNT star was a youth player during Klopp’s time at BVB and has since developed into one of the Bundesliga club’s most prized assets, and is counted among Europe’s finest attacking prospects.
This particular Liverpool FC Latest News also gains credibility from the fact that Pulisic has just two years remaining on his current deal at Westfalenstadion, with his contract expiring in 2020.
“He has a contract at Dortmund, no? That’s the first problem. I like Christian, I’ve known him since he was a kid. He’s still not really old, he’s a fantastic player, and it’s deserved people think highly of him in America. In Germany it’s the same. If he wants to play in England or whatever one day then for sure he has the chance to do so but he’s at a really good club for his development at this moment. It’s really good to be at a club where they know him already,” Klopp said of the player.

Liverpool Latest Transfer News – Klopp remains interested in Domagoj Vida
To add to the latest Liverpool FC Transfer Rumours, Turkish daily Aksam has suggested that Jurgen Klopp is ‘very insistent; on signing Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida this summer. The 29-year-old has been linked with Liverpool in recent weeks following his impressive showing in the heart of Croatia’s defence alongside Dejan Lovren at the 2018 FIFA World Cup this summer.
If we are to elaborate on this Liverpool FC News, Besiktas president Firket Orman was even scheduled to travel to England to hold talks with the Reds after reports of the Merseysiders tabling an offer in the region of €22m for Vida. However, Aksam say Besiktas aren’t in a hurry to sell Vida and will wait for the right offer. It’s claimed they are looking for offers over €22m, meaning Liverpool may need to increase their latest claimed bid for the player.
Liverpool FC News – Reds rejected chance to Alisson for as little as £4m in 2015
Alisson Becker recently completed his move to Liverpool after the club agreed to shell out a world-record fee for the goalkeeper and the club’s supporters were naturally overjoyed with the signing. The signing has also been applauded by pundits as a matter of club recognising an area of weakness within its first team and fixing it by adding a player of immense quality. Just to add a tinge of regret in this Liverpool FC Latest Transfer News, it has now been revealed that the club had actually been given the chance to sign Alisson back in 2015.
Irish Mirror is the source of this LFC News and this particular development on Liverpool FC Transfers front as they have reported that Liverpool were one of many Premier League and Championship clubs that sent out inquiries about the goalkeeper in 2015 but despite the glowing reviews, no English club opted to sign him and he eventually signed for AS Roma in 2016.
Back then, Alisson would have just cost Liverpool £3.1m, with £900,000 in add-ons, quite a lot less than the £67 million spent now.
Liverpool FC Latest News – Zeljko Buvac is not coming back
Not LFC Transfer News or Liverpool Transfer News Now per se but it has now been confirmed that former assistant manager Zeljko Buvac won’t be coming back to the club and that his 17-year-old working relationship with Jurgen Klopp is now effectively over. The two had worked alongside each other at Mainz and Borussia Dortmund in Germany before coming to Liverpool in October 2015.
Often regarded as the ‘Brain’ in Klopp’s coaching setup, Buvac caused quite a stir when he abruptly left the club ahead of last season’s Champions League final against Real Madrid and is yet to return or provide any updates since then. The recently returned and highly regarded Pep Lijnders is now set to take up Buvac’s vacant position as the club’s assistant manager and Klopp’s right-hand man.
LFC Transfer News – Karius to Bayern Munich?
In rather bizzare Liverpool FC Transfer News, Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are willing to pay the Anfield club around £10.7 million to sign goalkeeper Loris Karius this summer. This is according to German publication Bild who have reported that new Bayern boss Niko Kovac is looking for a cover for Manuel Neuer and is keen on signing Karius for the position.
This Liverpool FC Latest News will make sense for all parties concerned as Jurgen Klopp as well as he has just brought in Alisson as his new preferred goalkeeper and Karius himself could also jump at the surprise opportunity to reignite his career at the Allianz Arena in his native Germany.
