Transfer Talk from Goal.com’s Neil Jones
‘Next summer is already being talked up as a big one by sources close to [Liverpool], who believe it will be easier then to find the right kind of player to improve and evolve the team.’
‘Liverpool, naturally, have been linked with a host of midfield players this summer, but Anfield sources have been quick to dismiss links to the likes of Saul Niguez and Youri Tielemans. Not financially viable, is the word, either in terms of transfer fee, expected salary or both.’
‘But it would be a surprise, indeed, if Liverpool got to the end of this window without making at least one more first-team signing. ‘
Adama Traore – Winger – Wolverhampton Wanderers
Liverpool are poised to try and pull a fast one with a cut-price £30m bid to land Wolves flyer Adama Traore. Jurgen Klopp has been a big admirer of the Spain international who could be prised out of Molineux Traore is a winger prised for his workrate, and speed. Liverpool are supposedly offering half of Wolves asking price from last summer, but with a weak European transfer market and Traore only netting 2 goals and 3 assists in 37 Premier League games this season, Liverpool may be in prime position to make a swoop for the winger.
Jeremy Doku – Winger – Rennes
At the moment, Liverpool are still targeting 19-year-old Rennes winger Jeremy Doku but no offer has been made so far this summer. The player has been told by Rennes that the club don’t want to sell him. Jeremy apparently loves Liverpool, and after this season with Rennes, he is ready for a step up. [Source: @sachatavolieri]

It would not be surprising considering it’s FSG but it would be a mistake imo and as last year gave us a painful reminder in not replacing important players and positions. Gini was an engine and had great awareness and a football brain. A big miss and with Origi hopefully moving on we need a striker
Traore for 30M?
That won’t even get Wolves to the table!
Up the ante to 40m and perhaps there may be some movement and if there is, don’t try the Jota trick of 4.5m down and the rest in installments.
This time it is all the money or no potential deal!
Is there an understanding that Liverpool lacks quality depth. Origi coming off the bench doesn’t exactly make one get up out of their seats. This is not a stab at Origi, I have a lot of respect for him, however, we need a proven goalscorer
Livarpool….cheap club acting big besides winning a boat load of trophies, never be in the same class has Man u who buy big.
Man U gotta buy big because they are falling behind, last season was a fluke and order will be restored this season.
Liverpool buy under the radar players and turn them into Diamonds. Ynwa
He’s a fast player who can drag the defense behind and through a pass for a kill, with some improvements under new management like Klopp, could make a hell of a difference for his career, would the Wolf’s conceder 30 mil?? No chance
