Liverpool transfer news: Reds could break club record fee once again, and more, 4th May 2018
Liverpool, after making it to the Champions League final recently, have a pretty big summer transfer window ahead. The Reds have been able to add good players to their squad in the last few transfer windows and Jurgen Klopp has managed to build a team that has functioned well together.
We take a look at the players they've been linked with of late.
Liverpool eyeing a move for Bruno Fernandes
The versatile midfielder has played in quite a few positions for Sporting Lisbon so far this season but is seen as someone who can add more drive and creativity to the Liverpool midfield.
Most of Fernandes' appearances have come in the attacking midfield position and he has scored 11 goals and provided seven assists. Liverpool have been heavily reliant on their front three for the goals, so someone like Fernandes, who can provide goals from midfield, would be a wise addition. But he won't come cheap.
Reports indicate the 23-year-old Portuguese will cost the club a record £87million. I mean, I know money plays a big role, but £87million? Really? Believe what you want, reader.
Emre Can's departure very likely
Agents direct a lot of what happens in the modern day transfer market. Just ask the Liverpool fans about Raheem Sterling and they'll tell you just how much they despise the agents!
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can will be without a contract this summer and talks have broken down with his current side which means he is likely to depart. Latest reports reveal that Juventus will shell out a big chunk of money to get the midfield. But to whom exactly? That's right, Can's agent.
It's unclear as to how much the agent will receive at this point in time.
Steven Gerrard to join Rangers
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard will join Rangers on the first of June having agreed on a four-year deal. The former midfielder said, "It was a no-brainer for me.
"There were a lot of different things to think about but from that first phone call I got a special feeling and I knew that Rangers were for me.
"I'm very aware of Rangers, the size of the club, I've watched them from afar and been lucky enough to watch some of the Old Firm games."
