Terrible rumour sees Everton ‘rival’ Reds & sales could raise up to £100m – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool appear to be offloading players before looking to buy this summer, so it’s probably worth entirely ignoring today’s “big” rumours! 


Italian media peddle blatant lies

Liverpool have been linked with Stefan de Vrij, on and off, for about four years. Unless there was anything in the suggestion that we might have signed him for free when he left Lazio, they have never been anything other than wide of the mark.

Still, despite us now having six centre-backs, having spent £35m on a new one and having the world’s best one back to almost-full-fitness, Tuttosport try to claim we’re ‘tempted’ by a €60m deal for the Inter Milan man – and that our big rivals for the move are Everton.

Apparently, they’ll move to the front of the queue based on the vague notion that they have told his agent Mino Raiola they’re interested – judging by Mino’s previous work, what would actually happen there is he’d say “OK, show me the signing-on fees for me and the player”, and there Everton‘s ‘interest’ would end.

Neither of the Mersey clubs are signing him.

  • Liverpool could raise over £100m in sales this summer – not so much a rumour, but a probable plan to aim towards. A third or so of that is already in, and there could be up to £70m more from another eight summer departures
  • Vitezslav Jaros is enjoying his first loan spell away from the Reds and he’s in a title fight in his first taste of senior action
