Reds make ‘calls’ for Lazio midfielder & new kit release confirmed – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool’s transfer rumours have died down a bit today – presumably there’s too much actual news to write, what with three of the four major nations being in the Euros semis and all. No signing 12 players today, then!


Calls made but no “monstrous” offer

We’ve been linked with him before, but this is the first concrete – if you believe the messenger even remotely – suggestion of moves toward signing Sergej Milenkovic-Savic being made.

Unfortunately, if you’re a fan of the Lazio midfielder, that’s as far as it has gone…and as far as it’s likely to go.

The Rome club don’t want to sell their key man for anything less than a “monstrous offer” in the region of €100m. The Reds, apparently, made calls to enquire about his availability, but didn’t signal the intention to pay anything more than €70m or so, and there the transfer trail ends.

Back to Bissouma-Saul-Sanches-Neuhaus, then.
