Liverpool transfer news as Reds ‘make bid’ amid another $76m battle with Newcastle

Liverpool transfer news: Liverpool will reportedly make a second bid for a defender, while the Reds could be in another $76m with Newcastle United.

With two midfielders now in Jürgen Klopp’s possession, Liverpool’s summer rebuild is starting to take shape.

Having already signed Alexis Mac Allister before the transfer market even opened, the Reds added Dominik Szoboszlai on Sunday. The Hungary international completed his transfer from RB Leipzig and signed a five-year contract.

Now that their next transfer priority has to be decided, Klopp and Jörg Schmadtke appear to have already decided on the position they’ll be focusing on.

The Athletic reports that Liverpool won’t contemplate adding a third midfielder unless it first offloads a player from that position. With many names being mentioned, it appears that a defender is the more likely choice.

According to the most recent Italian rumors, Liverpool has actually already made a bid for one of those choices and is preparing another. Meanwhile, the Reds might have to face off against Newcastle once more as well as a few other Premier League competitors.

Here is the verdict on the transfer gossip to emerge around the Reds today.

Marc Guehi (Crystal Palace)

In order to get Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi, Football Insider reports that Liverpool is prepared to compete with Newcastle, Arsenal, and Tottenham.

The price Liverpool paid for Dominik Szoboszlai, $76 million (£60 million/€70 million), is reportedly the minimum Palace will accept for the England international.

According to, Guehi has been impressive for Palace over the past couple of seasons. However, it stands to reason that Liverpool wouldn’t want to spend an additional $76 million on just one player this summer, especially another right-footed defender. Although it would be tempting to keep Newcastle from adding another player, the Reds may decide to allow the Magpies keep this one.

Perr Schuurs (Torino)

According to Tuttosport, Liverpool will submit a new proposal for defender Perr Schuurs after Torino turned down its initial offer.

According to reports, the Serie A team turned down offers from the Reds for about $33 million (£26 million/€30 million) and Napoli for $27 million (£21 million/€25 million) plus bonuses. According to reports, Jürgen Klopp admires Schuurs, who the Liverpool manager has reportedly demanded the Reds sign “at any cost.”

It’s hardly surprising to see a spike in the amount of defenders being connected to Liverpool recently, according to Schuurs is a name that hasn’t come up all that much lately, but if Klopp is as fond of Schuurs as the Italian media implies, who can argue with the Reds manager?
