Liverpool are gearing up for a busy end to pre-season both on and off the pitch, with sales and signings expected at Anfield this month.
Jonathan David links renewed
We were keen a year ago, but Canadian forward Jonathan David swapped Belgium for France and moved to Lille instead.
It cannot be claimed it was the wrong move; he got to grips with the new league over time and finished the campaign strongly – and as a title-winner, too.
But now rumours suggest they have to sell this summer and he’s a candidate to depart, with Liverpool keen to finally land their man.
He’s still “high on the list” apparently, and might make a very good addition if he’s going for anywhere near the €30m Lille forked out 12 months ago.
Reds rumours of the day
- Kostas Tsimikas has made a good start to our summer games, but had a poor debut campaign. Other teams such as Napoli have reportedly approached the Reds looking for a deal this summer – but Jurgen Klopp has personally refused all offers and wants him to stay
- Nicolo Barella was briefly linked with the Reds, but Italian media report that the news was largely planted by the midfield’s agent, looking for a better deal
- Arnaut Danjuma wins the award for today’s most random rumour, with Marca (for some reason) suggesting we want to buy the Bournemouth winger and will have to pay €25m to do so. Ok then!
