Goal brings you all the latest news, rumours and deals related to the Reds as the January transfer window heats up
Liverpool enter chase for Alexis
Liverpool are ready to battle Manchester United and City for the signature of Alexis Sanchez, reports the Mirror .
The Chilean’s future has become increasingly unclear in January, with United muscling in on a player who seemed destined for the Etihad Stadium.
And now the Reds are prepared to spend a portion of the massive fee earned on Philippe Coutinho’s sale to clinch the Arsenal forward.
Suso back to Anfield?
Liverpool are considering a move to bring Suso back to Anfield from AC Milan, reports Tuttosport.
The Spanish forward left England in 2015 after struggling to make an impact, but he has impressed in Italy and caught the Reds’ eye once again.
Madrid to swap Bale for Salah
Real Madrid could use Gareth Bale as bait in order to land Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, claims Don Balon .
Salah’s sensational form this season has caught the eye of the Merengue, who have struggled to score goals.
And they would be prepared to sacrifice their record signing to convince Liverpool into selling the Egypt star.
Liverpool still hopeful over Goretzka
Liverpool are still hopeful of snatching Leon Goretzka out of Bayern Munich’s grasp, according to the Mirror .
The Schalke prospect is in high demand, as his contract is up at the end of the season.
But while Bayern are hot favourites to sign the midfielder, Liverpool will not give up the pursuit and contact has been made with Goretzka’s agents.
No early Liverpool move for Keita?
RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick has denied Liverpool have made an offer to sign Naby Keita in January.
“Neither the player has told us that he wants to change, nor is there an offer from Liverpool,” he said on Saturday.
Rush fears £200m bid for Salah
Livrepool legend Ian Rush fears that Real Madrid and Barcelona could come after Mohamed Salah with a massive bid of bid £200 million.
“On current form I would place Mo Salah ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s better than them at the moment,” Rush is quoted as saying by the Mirror .
“Mo is also the African Player of the Year, which – considering the standard of their players throughout Europe – is a great honour.
“There’s already been talk of Real Madrid looking at him – and who can blame them? In today’s inflated market, it wouldn’t surprise me if Liverpool one day received a £200m bid for him.
“Hopefully, he is happy where he is – after all, he only arrived last summer.
“There’s a time and a place to sell a player if the right money comes in, but, for Liverpool, it’s certainly not now.”
Akanji to snub Liverpool for Dortmund
Switzerland defender Manuel Akanji is set to move to Borussia Dortmund despite interest from Liverpool, according to Blick .
The centre-back missed training with Basel in order to travel to Dortmund where he will agree terms and complete a medical ahead of a €21.5 million transfer.
Spurs and Liverpool had both been linked with the 22-year-old, but he preferred a move to Dortmund as he felt he could more easily break into their first team.
Liverpool to sign Keita on Sunday
Liverpool have succeeded in their bid to push forward the signing of Naby Keita, according to the Express .
The Reds agreed terms with RB Leipzig over the midfielder in the summer, but the sale of Philippe Coutinho has left the club short of cover in the middle.
Their efforts to move up the transfer date have apparently been successful, and Keita could sign as early as Sunday.
Liverpool offered Ceballos hope
Liverpool have been made aware that they will be cleared to move for Dani Ceballos if Real Madrid can land a replacement.
Diario Gol reports that the Reds are looking at the 21-year-old as a possible replacement for Philippe Coutinho.
