Shaqiri exit doubts & Klopp’s challenge to Reds duo – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are back at Anfield tomorrow! It has been a long week of waiting after the opening day win, but we’re almost there.


Transfer corner

As you might expect, not a whole lot going on in the market in terms of incoming deals for Jurgen Klopp‘s squad – but that doesn’t mean no transfer news at all.

Ben Woodburn remains on the cusp of a loan move to Hearts, despite earlier stories suggesting he’d stay for the season. A strong summer simply must be followed up by a campaign where he proves his worth this time, for his own sake.

LFC Women are gearing up for a more sustained assault on a promotion bid from the Championship, with Charlotte Wardlaw becoming the eighth signing of the summer – a loan deal from Chelsea, this time.

And finally, there’s no real movement on Xherdan Shaqiri‘s exit, with French outlet Le Progres reporting there is a “significant” gap between what Lyon want to pay and what Liverpool are demanding as a fee.
