Tielemans rejects move talk & old Brighton rumour resurfaces – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool transfer rumours continue to come thick and fast and perhaps we’re starting to see the more realistic names and targets emerge now.


Tielemans focused on Euros, not transfers

The Reds have been widely linked with Youri Tielemans since it became apparent that Gini Wijnaldum would be leaving.

Our former No5 has now departed, signing for PSG, which means we’ll probably see a range of midfield options linked to Anfield between now and August.

The Leicester man has many of the traits which appeal, to Klopp and supporters alike, but he has made it clear his focus is just on Belgium and Euro 2020 for now – so no talk of a move…or of a new contract with the Foxes.

The latter means he’ll continue to be linked to an exit, with just two years left on his contract now.

Neuhaus, Tielemans, another name entirely? We’ll see how our midfield list pans out.

  • Pascal Gross was linked with Liverpool a couple of years ago but he has resurfaced as an option today, which is perhaps underwhelming but entirely possible as a squad option
  • Marko Grujic might be on the wanted list for Porto, but the local media have done a 180-turn and say today there’s no way they can afford the £17m asking price

  • Raheem Sterling will have talks with Man City after the Euros about a potential move away – and Bernardo Silva is among those who also wants out
  • Keylor Navas is suddenly wanted by Man United after they spent all of last season trying to decide between which two of their own actual keepers they wanted to play
  • Granit Xhaka might not leave Arsenal for Roma after all. The report says a “stalemate” in negotiations; we suspect that’s code for “they realised he’s a liability”
