Sunday’s LFC transfer rumours: Mkhitaryan medical & bids for Jorginho and Sakho?

If you think this summer has already been overfilled with transfer news and LFC transfer rumours, well things might start to get a whole lot busier tomorrow when the transfer window actually opens.


Liverpool have already confirmed the signing of four players in Kolo Toure, Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas and, this week, Simon Mignolet. The transfer window must have been left slightly ajar, at least.

Reports on Friday that the Reds could finally be on the verge of signing Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Henrikh Mkhitarayn, with many suggesting a £25million deal had been made between the clubs.

Today’s Liverpool-themed transfer rumours link two exciting talents with a move to Anfield this summer.

The first, 21-year-old creative midfielder Jorginho, who has dual Italian/Brazilian nationality and plays his football at Hellas Verona.

Eurosport report that Liverpool “are proposing an offer” worth £8million, with interest in the Italy U21 international also from AC Milan, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Meanwhile, over in France, French international Mamadou Sakho has revealed he has an offer to leave Paris St-Germain this summer, noting Liverpool and Milan as his potential suitors.

The 23-year-old towering centre-back could be seen as the perfect replacement for Jamie Carragher, who retired at the end of last season, whilst Martin Skrtel‘s future at Anfield is also still up in the air.

The Reds have been linked with a number of central defenders this summer, including Kyriakos Papadopoulus from Schalke, although that interest appears to have cooled.

PSG have recently appointed Laurent Blanc as their new coach, replacing Carlo Ancelotti, who has joined Real Madrid.

Sakho admitted his future is yet to be decided.

“I’ll be able to talk with the new coach and see what he thinks,” he is quoted by ESPN as saying. “I am flattered by the interest of historic clubs like Liverpool and AC Milan. We will see what happens in the near future.

“I have to make a decision. PSG is my club, I was born here and I learned my football here. I want to play for this club all my life, but it is clear that I do not want to sit on the bench.

“I have not played as much as I would have liked last sesaon because of the choices of the coach. Every player wants to play every week, too. There is an offer on the table.”

    Looking forward to Mkhitaryan signing, and what I’ve heard of jorginho he a box to box player which is good to have :-) but hopefully he more Brazilian than Italian ;-) we don’t have a good track record with Italians haha :)

      The last Brazilian Italian we’ve signed arrived as a box-to-box midfielder, too. Now he’s our defensive midfielder.

    Stakeholders would be a great signing. I’d be happy to take him over papa. He’s good in the air, but more importantly, he’s very quick, enabling us to play the HIV defensive line that Rodgers wants.

      Auto correct is a fickle beast. Hiv defensive line…classic.

          This had me in stitches, I’m in tears mate!

          • Rak S

            Well, It would make any opposing striker think twice at least. Arguably a bit of an extreme measure, but it’ll definitely test player loyalty too :)

  • Morpheus

    Mkh done within two days and Sakho done under 10m would be absolutely sublime. Jorginho would be a bonus.

  • RedField

    Just heard word we won’t been signing Mkhitaryan, we have either been muscled out of the way or we don’t want to pay that £25m fee. Either way this saga is over for us
