Liverpool edge closer to EIGHTH summer signing

Atletico Madrid right-back Javier Manquillo will have a medical at Liverpool today ahead of a season-long loan move, according to the Daily Star.

The 20-year-old Spaniard is the latest Atletico player to arrive in the Premier League this summer, after Diego Costa, Felipe Luis and Thibaut Courtois joined Chelsea.

And Brendan Rodgers will have the option to make Manquillo’s Kop stay permanent for as little as ¬£5million next summer.
