Report: Liverpool tried to sign Atletico Madrid’s Javier Manquillo on deadline day

The Liverpool Echo and The Mirror report the development shortly before Liverpool’s friendly match with AC Milan in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday evening.

Both reports say that the deal will be an initial two-year loan deal, with the option to make permanent for a fee of around £5 million and add-ons that have yet to be finalised.

The Echo write that “Under the terms of the deal, the eventual fee will be determined by the number of appearances Manquillo makes.”

Both reports also state that left-back Alberto Moreno is finally close to signing too.

Brendan Rodgers will then look to complete his summer signings with a forward.
