Barcelona move to stave off Liverpool interest by offering Pedri new deal

Mon, 04/12/2021 - 08:41

Barcelona have moved to stave off Liverpool’s interest in rising star Pedri by offering him a new deal.

The 18-year-old attacking midfielder has been a revelation at the Nou Camp this season after breaking into the first team at the start of the campaign and his form with Barca has seen him capped three times by Spain already.

Liverpool have recorded their interest with the player’s representatives but the Catalan giants have made it clear they want to extend his current contract.

Liverpool 'leading the race to sign Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly in £42m deal’

Tue, 03/30/2021 - 11:46

Napoli are reportedly likely to cash in on defender Kalidou Koulibaly this summer with Liverpool said to be leading the race to sign him in a €50million (£42m) deal.

The Senegalese has been one of the most sought-after defenders in world football in recent years but has failed to seal a move away from the Serie A side. 

But, with his contract due to expire next summer, this year's window represents the final opportunity for Napoli to get a significant fee for him before they risk losing him for nothing.

Liverpool finalising deal to sign £34m RB Leipzig star Ibrahima Konate

Mon, 03/29/2021 - 09:05

Liverpool are on the brink of completing a deal to sign RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.

The Reds’ move for the centre-back is said to be at an ‘advanced stage’, according to the Athletic, with Liverpool ready to pay the £34million release clause in the Frenchman’s contract. 

That means Liverpool would not need to initiate talks with the Bundesliga club, though they may need to fight off interest from other parties to secure the defender’s signature.

Tue, 03/23/2021 - 10:15

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal are all reportedly in the hunt to sign Red Bull Salzburg forward Patson Daka.

The Zambian has enjoyed a sensational season in front of goal for the Austrian side, having scored 27 goals in 31 games across all competitions, including an incredible 20 strikes in 18 matches in the country's Bundesliga to make him comfortably the league's top scorer.

Daka also bagged two goals in a pre-season friendly against Liverpool last August as well as a double in a 5-2 aggregate win over Maccabi Tel Aviv last September to help the team qualify for the Champions League, with Salzburger Nachrichten reporting that the four English heavyweights are all showing an interest in the forward, valued at €20million (£17m) with that figure likely to soar.
