Reds set for busy end to transfer window


Liverpool look set to be busy in the final couple of days of the transfer window ahead of the new season.

It seems that most, if not all, of the remaining transfer business conducted by the club over the next forty-eight hours or so will be around players leaving Anfield.

But manager Jurgen Klopp has refused to totally rule out the prospect of any further signings to being added to the four he has made already this Summer.

Attacking trio Danny Ings, Divock Origi and Lazar Markovic could all be at other clubs when the window slams shut on Thursday, with clubs interested in signing each of them this week.

But this will all depend on these players remaining in England, as the transfer window is only closing for the Premier League – so moves abroad could happen until the end of the month for players.

Ings is the most likely to move on this week, with four domestic clubs chasing his signature according to reports in the press – Crystal Palace, Southampton, Leicester City and Newcastle United are all being linked with offers.

Origi and Markovic both look more likely to head overseas, which means that they have a few more weeks yet to seek out the right move for the next step of their careers.

Marko Grujic’s loan move to Cardiff City is looking increasingly unlikely to happen and he appears to be set to remain a part of Klopp’s squad until the new year at least.

Goalkeepers Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet could both be allowed to make exits – but Klopp would only have until Thursday to secure a new second choice goalkeeper as backup for Alisson – so it looks likely that at least one of them will still be in the squad when September begins.

Spanish midfielder Pedro Chirivella could yet make a move elsewhere after he rejected a move to Norwegian side Rosenborg following Liverpool’s acceptance of their bid for him.

Young winger Sheyi Ojo could also head for pastures new, with Championship rivals West Bromwich Albion and Nottingham Forest believed to be chasing a deal to sign him this week.
