Jurgen Klopp prepared for that huge departure with the signing of Benfica star Darwin Nunez, with the hope the Uruguayan can bridge the gap and more.

Further incomings appear to be unlikely, but plenty can change over the course of the transfer window, and especially with Mohamed Salah’s future not yet resolved.

Here we have the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Anfield:

Salah latest

Reports that Liverpool are resigned to losing Mohamed Salah are said to be wide of the mark.

It emerged on Sunday that the Reds had all-but given up on keeping the Egyptian around long-term, but it seems that is not the case.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool have no expectations over whether Salah will sign a new deal or not at this point, and they are still working towards resolving the situation.

Oxlade-Chamberlain surprise

Liverpool are not likely to sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain despite plenty of reports this summer claiming they would do so.

It was reported the midfielder would be offloaded for him to land more regular minutes, having played a bit-part role at Anfield.

But the same report from the Echo claims Liverpool have no plans to sell Oxlade-Chamberlain, and that will come as a surprise to most.

Origi deal

Divock Origi is finally closing on a deal for AC Milan.

It has been known for some time that the Serie A champions are going to complete the free transfer of the soon-to-be former Liverpool striker.

But a deal is now set to be finalised, with Fabrizio Romano saying a medical is booked for this week, ahead of the deal being done.

Origi has received a fond fairwell from Liverpool fans.
