Liverpool are apparently planning to transfer Marko Grujic for £20 million this summer, and Jurgen Klopp has pushed Michael Edwards to acquire four new players.
Liverpool are expected to spend big this summer and offload some of their deadwood in order to move to the top of English football next season.
Last season, the Reds’ Premier League title defense ended in a whimper, with Jurgen Klopp relinquishing the title as early as February.
According to reports, he is planning a summer squad overhaul at Anfield in order to improve the club’s chances of reclaiming first place in the 2021/22 season.
Several footballers are expected to leave and arrive on Merseyside in the coming weeks, and Sports Evolve website has the most up-to-date Liverpool transfer news below.
Grujic price set
After spending the last three and a half years on loan at Cardiff, Hertha Berlin, and Porto, Marko Grujic is expected to sign a permanent deal away from Liverpool.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds value Grujic, 25, at approximately £20 million and are looking to sell him this summer.
Klopp eyes four stars
Youri Tielemans and Yves Bissouma of Leicester and Brighton are thought to be targets for the Reds manager, who is trying to replace departed midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is said to be interested in Leeds winger Raphinha, who is also garnering interest from Manchester United, and Red Bull Salzburg attacker Patson Daka.
Phillips drops transfer hint
With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez poised to recover from long-term injuries, and Ibrahima Konate’s £36 million transfer approved, it’s unclear where Nat Phillips’ future lies in the following campaign.
The 24-year-old has stated that he may be willing to quit Liverpool in quest of regular first-team action this summer, telling the Echo:
“I have loved every minute of it and would love to continue playing for the club.”
“But I’ve also got to take into consideration what is best for my career, and that will depend on what role Liverpool see they do or don’t have for me and I’ll have to go from there.”
