Barcelona star Reds »No. 1 target ‘, Youri Tielemans holds – –

Liverpool lost a body in midfield as Georginio Wijnaldum finally sealed his move to Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday afternoon.
The Dutchman has been one of Jurgen Klopp’s most trusted performers throughout his five years at Anfield, and the Liverpool boss faces a crucial decision as to how – or even to replace him.

Klopp could give 20-year-old academy graduate Curtis Jones a bigger role and hope that Naby Keita will be able to avoid the injuries that have plagued his Anfield career next season.

Alternatively, Liverpool chiefs could enter the transfer market to sign a replacement for Wijnaldum, with Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans heavily linked with a move to Merseyside.

Liverpool have not submitted an offer to sign Tielemans from Leicester, according to reports

But the latest reports suggest Liverpool’s approaches for the Belgian are stalling, while a Barcelona star is now seen as the Reds’ priority target.

Also featuring an update on Kostas Tsimikas, here is the summary of Liverpool’s transfers on Friday.

Little progress in the pursuit of Tielemans

Liverpool have yet to make a bid for Youri Tielemans despite his considerable interest in the Leicester City midfielder, according to reports.

Tielemans, 24, continues to strengthen for the Foxes and scored a stunning winner in the FA Cup final last month.

Liverpool are believed to see him as a Georginio Wijnaldum replacement, but they have not submitted a bid for Tielemans despite recent speculation that talks have been opened.

This is according to the Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur, who also affirms that his compatriot will postpone the decision on his future until he participates in Euro 2020.

Tsimikas linked to the exit from Anfield

Tsimikas barely featured for the Reds in his first season with the club

Kostas Tsimikas only arrived in Merseyside last year but is already linked with a departure.

The Greek left-back barely had a peek in his debut season with Liverpool, with Andy Robertson rarely resting from the starting XI.

Turkish exit photomac says Fenerbahce is monitoring the situation with a view to reaching a deal for Tsimikas. The report adds that Liverpool could be ready to let the 25-year-old go on loan after making just two Premier League appearances.

Is Tsimikas good enough to be Robertson’s replacement? Comments below.

Pedro emerges as a priority target

Pedri established himself as a regular at the club and the country at the age of 18

Liverpool have made Barcelona sensation Pedri their priority target for the summer transfer window, according to reports in Spain.

Pedri, 18, moved to Camp Nou from Las Palmas and quickly established himself as indispensable to Barca boss Ronald Koeman.

The teenage midfielder has made 52 stunning appearances in all competitions this season and will travel to Euro 2020 as part of the Spain squad.

Sports world reports that Pedri is the No.1 target for Liverpool chiefs, although Barcelona are keen to accept new terms with their flourishing talent, who have a £ 70million release clause in their current contract.
