Liverpool Transfer Roundup: New Ojo deal, loan for youngster, no move for Max Kruse

With Liverpool in a great position following a successful past season, there is no need for a host of incomings this summer. Most of the business at Anfield is expected to be in regards to players already on Merseyside, whether it be contract negotiations or transfer departures. Here’s a look at the latest news regarding the Reds…

Ojo earns new deal

One of those players who will be offered a new deal is Sheyi Ojo, according to Football Insider. Ojo spent last year on loan at French side Reims and, despite only scoring one goal in 19 games from the wing, Liverpool have decided to offer him a five-year extension to his current deal.

Another loan move for Kane

According to Goal.com, youngster Herbie Kane will spend another season out on loan next year. The 20-year-old midfielder impressed at Doncaster Rovers in League One, and now Brentford, Millwall and Hibernian are all interested in securing his services on a short-term basis.

Origi and Brewster instead of Kruse

Despite previous interest, the Reds are no longer in the hunt for Werder Bremen midfielder Max Kruse according to the Liverpool Echo. The former German international scored 12 goals and provided 14 assists in all competitions for the Bundesliga side last season, but Jurgen Klopp has instead decided to place his trust in Champions League hero Divock Origi and youth academy graduate Rhian Brewster.
