Liverpool transfer news: Jurgen Klopp sanctions Salah move, Fekir's father denies transfer reports and more - May 10
Jurgen Klopp willing to sanction Salah's transfer to Madrid
If media reports from Don Balon are to believed, then the Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, seems to have given Mohamed Salah a go-ahead to join Real Madrid next season.
The Egyptian forward, who has scored over 40 goals for the Reds this season, has been pivotal to their successful campaign in the Champions League this year.
Apparently, the Liverpool manager is willing to let Salah go if the Spanish Club are willing to pay in excess of €190 million to add him to their squad.
If these numbers are to be believed and if the move does go through along the same lines, the 25-year-old will become the second most expensive signing in world football, behind Neymar's transfer to PSG last summer.
Nabil Fakir's father denies claims of Anfield move
The stories around Nabil Fekir's transfer to Liverpool this summer have become more substantial and frequent over the past week.
However, if a source who is very close to the Lyon forward is to be believed, then it would seem as if no deal is on the table for now.
In a discussion with Olympique et Lyonnais, Fekir's father dismissed the rumours of his son moving to Anfield next season.
"Nabil in Liverpool, that's incorrect. I can deny this information right now. It's not true, otherwise, Nabil would have told me right away. We are very close," he said.
Liverpool frontrunners to sign Diego Leite
Porto centre-back Diego Leite, who has attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City in the last few months, might end up denying them to ultimately represent Liverpool in the Premier League next season.
According to the Guardian, the 19-year-old, who represents the Porto B team at the moment, is close to signing for Liverpool than he is for any other club in England at the moment.
The Reds are likely to ship him out for a loan next season, so as to help him build the first-team experience.
A spate of scouts from the Premier League were in London earlier this week when Porto beat Arsenal in an under-23 encounter to clinch the Premier League International Cup final at the Emirates Stadium.
