It will continue to be a very exciting summer transfer window at Liverpool, with plenty of potential comings and goings.
The tabloids and back pages are quite busy this silly season, so, let’s take a spin through the latest transfer rumors and gossip making the rounds on the internet this Thursday.
-You may have heard a thing or two somewhere about Liverpool making a €180 million offer to Real Madrid for Marco Asensio. If you Google his name, the first auto-complete in the search box is “Liverpool.”
That’s understandable as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has been after the midfielder for a long time.
Asenio spoke out about the transfer gossip surrounding him while with Spain at the World Cup.
“It’s something that has come out,” said Asensio.
“I’m very focused on this World Cup. When it’s over, that kind of thing will be talked about, I’m focused on making a great World Cup with the National Team.”
ESPN FC has a nice brief synopsis of how this specific transfer rumor evolved. ESPN writes that- “It Started with a report in Mundo Deportivo at the weekend that was repeated in Marca on Wednesday, and Sport claims Real could be willing to sacrifice him as they look to raise funds to sign Neymar.”
-Elsewhere, Liverpool have acquired a true whiz kid, Bobby Duncan, from Manchester City, and he’s a local, with some very strong connections to the club. The Liverpool Echo writes that:
“The Whiston-born 17-year-old frontman, who is the cousin of Kop legend Steven Gerrard, has signed a three-year professional contract. The Reds have agreed a compensation package with City worth around £200,000 and he will start pre-season training at the Academy on July 2.”
-Finally, Danny Ings wants out of Anfield, and he’s searching for a place where he can find regular first team football. West Ham United are one of the many teams that is reportedly interested. The Guardian has more at this link.
