Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp so far has just the one new face to add to his current squad, with Sepp van den Berg the sole arrival this summer. Today’s Reds transfer roundup includes an update in the rumoured pursuit of a La Liga ace, the potential departure of one of the club’s youngsters, and news on the future of a Croatian centre-back.
L’Equipe is reporting that Liverpool target Ousmane Dembele has told Barcelona that he wishes to stay with the Catalan club this summer. The Anfield outfit had reportedly been interested in a move for the Frenchman, but the former Borussia Dortmund man does not want to leave.
Former Reds youngster 20-year-old Bobby Adekanye has joined Lazio, the Serie A side have announced. The winger never made a first-team appearance for Liverpool but did represent them nine times in Premier League 2 last season.
Predrag Mijatovic, an intermediary for Dejan Lovren’s agent, has been pictured in Milan. There was reportedly a meeting between Mijatovic and the AC Milan hierarchy. Milan have previously been credited with an interest in the former Southampton centre-back, but it remains to be seen whether the Rossoneri will make a strong move for the defender this summer.
