The latest Liverpool transfer news as Jurgen Klopp’s side continue to build towards their 2023/24 Premier League season opener against Chelsea.

The new Premier League season kicks off in under a month meaning clubs still have plenty of time remaining in the summer transfer window to bolster their squads before returning to competitive action.

Liverpool have already been busy this summer and could still get a few more deals completed, although there is also plenty of talk with regards to players leaving Anfield in the coming weeks. Club captain Jordan Henderson is currently being linked with a surprise move to Saudi Arabia and it now looks like another Reds midfielder could be in line to join him.

The report also claims that it is anticipated a decision will move quickly one way or the other. The Reds are unlikely to sanction the player’s exit without first lining up a replacement which could come in the form of Southampton’s Romeo Lavia ‘among a number of options under consideration.’
