2 new attacking transfer targets for the Reds – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool have now played a pre-season game and Ibrahima Konate has now debuted. Additionally, two players have been sold. Therefore there’s only one thing left to do: sign everyone!


Reds suddenly favourites to land Aouar

That’s how it goes, isn’t it? You’re linked to Arsenal for months on end and when all seems desperate and as though you might have to join them, a saviour club swoops in and prevents year after year of disappointment.

Fortune has this time favoured Houssem Aouar, according to the latest reports in France, where they say Liverpool have “the greatest probability” to sign the playmaker for between £25-30million.

He’s an attack-minded No8 – even a 10 with Lyon for a while – and the money made from Awoniyi and Grujic alone this week would cover the vast majority of the cost here, even before considering Michael Edwards‘ ability to lower our payments.

Of course, there’s every chance this rumour is nothing more than the latest random name in the frame, plucked from the air by certain media outlets from a high-profile club and a name who sells clicks…but that’s nowhere near as fun to believe.
