Overview of Liverpool transfers: Wijnaldum waits as the Reds get closer to “the next Neymar”


If there’s one thing we know about the Liverpool scouts it’s that they are incredibly efficient. Reports in the media that Liverpool are taking a serious interest in a player are rare these days – such is the tight handling of their interests – but two rejected offers for Jamal Lewis saw them instantly turn to the Greek Super League.

An estimated £ 13million spent on Kostas Tsimikas is a profitable move for the Reds, but it perhaps shows more how ruthless they are in the transfer window.

It has been reported that they’ve put together a four-player roster for Andrew Robertson’s assistant, with Lloyd Kelly and Sergio Reguilon the other two options.

Still, the fact that they took Lewis’s attention away after being unimpressed with Norwich City’s valuations shows how they are handling the market.

Can we revisit a similar theme throughout the rest of the transfer window? Here are the Liverpool transfer rumors.

Wijnaldum “waiting” for contract negotiations

Georginio Wijnaldum representatives reportedly ready to open talks on new deal

Georginio Wijnaldum representatives are reportedly waiting for Liverpool to reopen contract extension negotiations this summer.

The 29-year-old has only one year left on his current contract amid ongoing speculation about his future at Anfield.

According to Sky Sports, representatives of the Dutch international are ready to open talks with the Reds over signing a new deal.

Increased uncertainty over Wijnaldum’s future has circulated in recent weeks with widespread reports that Bayern Munich’s Thiago is on the club’s radar.

Watford has set a price of £ 40million for the Reds goal

Liverpool target Ismaila Sarr scored against the Reds in Watford’s shock win in February

Liverpool are reportedly leading the way to sign Ismaila Sarr from Watford this summer.

The Evening Standard reports that the Premier League champions have become the club most likely to sign the 22-year-old, with interest also coming from across Europe.

However, the report also points out that it would cost £ 40million to sign the Senegal winger, with Watford unwilling to receive offers below that figure.

This sort of sum could exclude Liverpool from being obliged to sign Sarr this summer as the club have been reluctant to invest any money during an uncertain financial period.

Reds set to sign ‘next Neymar’ amid Klopp interest

Liverpool reportedly lead the race to sign Talles Magno

Liverpool are said to be set to sign young Brazilian Talles Magno this summer as the 18-year-old are keen to move to Anfield.

According to EsporteNews, as cited by HITC, the Reds are leading the race to sign Magno with Juventus and other European clubs interested in acquiring his services.

The report also suggests Vasco De Gama would demand up to £ 27million for the 18-year-old who has been dubbed ‘the next Neymar’ by some fans in Brazil.

If Liverpool see Magno as a real long-term option, signing the youngster this summer will certainly come at a significant cost.
