Liverpool Transfer News: Five Major Transfers To Expect This Summer

Liverpool are bracing themselves for a busy summer following a torrid 2020/21 Premier League campaign.

Betting odds sites such as Keo168 already back Liverpool as one of the title contenders for next season, and a few smart signings will further cement Liverpool’s odds for a trophy.

Jurgen Klopp has already kickstarted the squad overhaul with a €35m signing of the highly-rated defender Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.

The Reds are expected to complete a few more deals before the summer transfer window is gone.

Naby Keita

After a series of injury setbacks hampered his efforts to adapt to the Premier League, Keita could leave in the coming months.

Liverpool are keen to offload their underperforming midfielder and recoup most of the £48m they forked out to sign him from Leipzig in summer 2018.

A lack of game time at Anfield is believed to have scared off Keita’s suitors, though the player’s representatives are working around the clock to secure him an escape route this summer.

Patson Daka

Liverpool are ready to move Divock Origi when the transfer window reopens for business and have already captured his replacement.

The 34-goal RB Salzburg sensation is on the verge of joining the Premier League heavyweights and become Klopp’s second summer signing.

Daka has taken the scoring burden upon himself in the wake of Erling Haaland’s move to Borussia Dortmund and has since excelled for Salzburg.

Several European top clubs were interested in acquiring the mercurial forward, but the Reds appear to have won the race.

Youri Tielemans

Klopp is in the market for a gifted midfielder to fill the void left by Georginio Wijnaldum’s departure for Barcelona, and Tielemans has emerged as the number one candidate.

The 24-year-old’s match-winning performance against Chelsea in the 2021 FA Cup Final probably best illustrates how talismanic the Belgium international can be on his good day.

Although Leicester City are hell-bent on keeping hold of their prized asset, the Foxes will find it tough to retain their star if the Reds come calling.

Philippe Coutinho

Barcelona are desperate to get rid of Coutinho’s whopping wages in the summer and have already pitched Liverpool with an idea of a season-long loan.

The Brazilian’s career has suffered an epic downfall since his blockbuster £142m transfer from Anfield to Camp Nou in January 2018.

The Blaugrana flop would favour a return to the Premier League, where he has transformed into an elite star.

With Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all performing in patches, Coutinho’s talents could come in handy next season.

Kylian Mbappe

It may look like sci-fi at first glance, but Mbappe’s move to Anfield is not beyond the realm of possibility.

The French whizz-kid has already displayed his admiration for Liverpool and Klopp and could leave the Parc des Princes on the back of Paris Saint-Germain’s disappointing season.

Unlike his partner in crime, Neymar, the 22-year-old has yet to pledge his long-term future to Paris amid growing interest from the Reds and Real Madrid.

With his contract in the French capital due to expire next summer, PSG could be forced to sell Mbappe in the upcoming period unless they convince him to pen a new deal soon.
