Your first Liverpool news overview of the week features some intriguing transfer stories, post-Bournemouth chat and plenty more.
Liverpool have been credited with interest in two youngsters ahead of this summer’s transfer window, and neither of them are defenders!
It is fair to say the back four is likely to be a priority when the 2023/24 campaign draws to a close, with Joel Matip expected to depart on a free and injury problems making the options thinner than the manager would like at points.
New reports indicate that the club may also be willing to shop further up the pitch, with the Daily Mail suggesting that Genk’s Bilal El Khannouss and Palmeiras’ Luis Guilherme are on the radar.
El Khannouss is a midfielder and has featured 34 times for the Belgian side so far this season, while Guilherme is a right winger and is thought to be part of the succession plan for Mohamed Salah.
The former is 19 years old, while Guilherme is even younger at 17, but both are regarded as being exciting prospects at their respective clubs.
Some interesting ones to keep an eye on, at least!
