Liverpool’s rumours continue to come thick and fast, while Reds around the globe are busy with their international commitments, too.
Berardi on Reds’ list if Salah departs
Didn’t take long, did it?! Euro 2020 is well underway now, so naturally, Liverpool have thrown all their careful transfer plans in the bin and just want whoever is performing well.
Now, there’s obviously a chance we have held interest in any player prior to the tournament, it’s just rather funny to see the links ‘come to light’ after someone has a good game.
As such, take with a pinch of salt reports from Italian media that Liverpool have “direct interest” in Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi, who has starred from the right so far for the Azzurri.
He’s rated at €50m – though there’s no suggestion from Gazzetta that we’ll make a move unless Salah departs. Covering all the bases, then.
Reds rumours of the day
- Patson Daka has been widely linked with the Reds for a year or two, but he is now reportedly on the verge of joining Leicester City instead
- Christoph Baumgartner is the next random name in the frame for the Reds’ reported “interest”, with German media saying Klopp sees him as one to transform into a central midfielder
- Alexander Isak rumours continue apace too, with new Spanish reports saying a host of Premier League clubs have asked about the £70m rated man, including the Reds, Arsenal and Chelsea

Tweet of the day and match of the night
Steven Gerrard is pretty much the closest thing I’ve seen to a real life superman on the pitch. Liverpool will be losing/getting slapped about the park and this guy will literally just slap it top bins 40 from yards and all the momentum your team had is gone ???
