The LFC Rumour Round-Up: Valbuena, John, Morata

A round-up of Wednesday’s Liverpool FC related transfer talk.

Liverpool are linked with a move for French midfielder Mathieu Valbuena in The Mirror.


“The 29-year-old is being tipped for a move away from the Stade Velodrome either now or in the summer, and Brendan Rodgers’ side is being touted as rivals to Monaco for his signature”, they write.

The latest on Mohamad Salah you ask? Well, not a lot really. Clubcall cite the same quotes we ran yesterday but add that Zenit St Petersburg are ready to out bid Liverpool.

If Liverpool don’t get Salah, they could turn their attentions to another winger – Benfica’s Ola John, according to The Daily Mail.

Elsewhere, Arsenal are linked with a loan move for Real Madrid’s highly-rated young forward Alvaro Morata today, but The Express claim Liverpool will rival Arsene Wenger’s side for his signature.

They cite Spanish paper Marca as the source of the report, claiming a loan deal for the rest of the season for the 21-year-old.

Meanwhile, one player seemingly not heading to Merseyside is Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic. The Croatian has been linked with a move to Liverpool or Man United recently but ESPN report he’ll extend his deal at the Spanish side.
