Liverpool transfer news – Talks opened with Manuel Ugarte

According to CNN Portugal, Liverpool have initiated talks with Sporting CP over their midfielder Manuel Ugarte. The Uruguay sensation has a release clause of €60m (£53.1m) and it’s thought that they wouldn’t accept any offers less than that. So, Liverpool will need to cough up but nowhere near as much as they would’ve needed to for Jude Bellingham.

Liverpool transfer news – Jurrien Timber drops hint about his future

According to The Boot Room, Jurrien Timber, who is on Liverpool’s transfer shortlist, has dropped a major hint that he will leave Ajax in the summer. It’s thought that Virgil van Dijk has nothing but praise for the defender, and that excites fans since Timber who is just 21 years old would prosper from learning alongside one of the best defenders in the world, Van Dijk.

Liverpool transfer news – Man City and Newcastle out of Mason Mount race

According to the latest report from Football Insider, Liverpool have been haded a significant boost in their race to sign the Chelsea want-away Mason Mount. It’s thought that Man City and Newcastle are no longer in the running to sign him, meaning two financial powerhouses have been eliminated.

Mount is seen as the ideal signing at Anfield. He is young and homegrown with plenty of Premier League experience by now. The Reds must sign a midfielder desperately since that’s the position which has let them down the most this season, hence their poor league positioning and necessity to do better next season.
