Overview of transfers to Liverpool: Coutinho update, competition for Wonderkid, admirer of Mane


Following last week’s Premier League title celebrations, Liverpool will focus on creating new records this season. The Reds could still break the Manchester City 100 point record in the 2017/18 Premier League season with the two teams meeting Thursday evening at Etihad Stadium.

However, there will also be an eye on maintaining the very first Premier League title next season, and some action may be needed in the transfer market to ensure the Reds keep their sparkly form from this season.

Having missed Timo Werner’s signature due to a lack of finances, Liverpool may want to consider more creative ways to reach deals this summer.

There are also expected to be a few departures in the coming months and the replacement of Adama Lallana and Xherdan Shaqiri will be essential if Klopp is to maintain a good depth.

Philippe Coutinho could be back in Merseyside

Here are the latest transfer rumors to Liverpool.

Everton presented as the English club most likely to sign Coutinho

Former Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho could make an unprecedented return to English football on the blue half of Merseyside in the next transfer window.

This is according to Bleacher Report, which stressed that the Blues are the most interested of any Premier League team when it comes to facilitating a return to the English elite for Coutinho.

It is believed that Barcelona wants to sell the Brazilian with the Catalan club in the face of difficult financial decisions.

A move to Goodison Park would provide another turning point in the eventful years since leaving Liverpool for Camp Nou.

Chelsea to compete with Reds for Bundesliga youth

Nick Breitenbucher could be a good addition as Jurgen Klopp tries to build for the future

Liverpool and Chelsea are both said to be recruiting young Hoffenheim Nick Nick Breitenbucher.

The 17-year-old has sparked interest from both Premier League clubs, according to The Guardian.

If Breitenbucher were to join the Reds’ youth system, he would team up with fellow countryman Paul Glatzel, who signed a long-term contract with the club earlier this season.

With finances expected to be limited to Anfield this summer, signing the next generation of talent could be a sign of things to come in the next transfer window for the Klopp team.

Zidane “great admirer” of Mane

There has been constant speculation that Real Madrid is trying to get Sadio Mane away from Liverpool

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is said to be a big fan of Sadio Mane from Liverpool.

The Senegalese striker has been in superb form for Klopp this season and the Spanish giants greatly admire him, according to The Independent.

Mane has been touted as one of Klopp’s most influential players since joining the club in 2016, but the prospect of leaving Merseyside in favor of the Santiago Bernabeu is very unlikely.

Nevertheless, the admiration of Zidane and his team shows how the example of Liverpool has become a model in recent seasons.
