Liverpool make shock ‘£60m offer’ for Man Utd target as update on Jurgen Klopp’s plans emerges

All the latest Liverpool transfer news and rumours as Jurgen Klopp’s men look to move on from their poor start.

Liverpool are hoping to improve on their disappointing start this weekend when they take on Bournemouth at home.

The Reds have been poor so far, picking up just two points from their first three games, struggling to get going amid a host of injury issues.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are already seven points behind the leaders, though they continue to resist investing in new signings.

Liverpool could do with some help, especially in midfield, but with just under a week remaining in the window, it still looks pretty quiet at Anfield.

On that topic, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding the Reds:

Shock offer

Liverpool have been linked with a surprise move for Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong.

The Dutchman has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United this summer, with the Red Devils struggling to pull off a deal.

According to Forbes, Liverpool have now made a move for de Jong, with the report stating: “Liverpool have made an offer to FC Barcelona to sign their midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

“This has been reported by Spanish transfer news outlet Futbol Total, who have confirmed claims made by Liverpool fan account Talk of the Kop on Wednesday afternoon.

”According to the source, the Premier League giants have tabled a bid for the Dutchman that would see them hand over an initial £53m ($62.5mn) for his services and a further £7m ($8.25m) in variables totaling around €71mn ($70m).”

Romano update

Meanwhile, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has spoken about Liverpool’s transfer plans.

He told CaughtOffside: “I think Jurgen Klopp told the truth about the club’s plans: Liverpool can only think of a new signing if a smart opportunity like Luis Diaz appeared in January for example, otherwise they will stay with the current squad.

“We’ve seen in the past that Liverpool under Klopp don’t tend to do panic buys – as things stand, the approach is the same.”
