Wieffer transfer, Murillo declaration & Carvalho claim – Latest Liverpool FC News

The Reds have reportedly missed out on the signing of a Dutch international, but one Premier League defender has declared himself open to a Liverpool transfer.


Liverpool ‘moved too late’ for Wieffer

According to an update from De Telegraaf, Brighton are on the verge of snapping up Feyenoord midfielder Mats Wieffer, despite interest from Liverpool.

The report suggests that Arne Slot was keen on signing the 24-year-old with whom he spent two years at Feyenoord.

New Liverpool sporting director Richard Hughes reportedly left things too late, however, and Wieffer now looks set to head to the Amex Stadium for £25 million instead.

Whether this is completely true and comes back to haunt Liverpool remains to be seen, but the Dutchman arguably isn’t at the level required.

Reds should still be able to rest easy tonight.
