A selection of the latest transfer news, and more, involving Liverpool Football Club this Friday morning.
Liverpool are to continue adding players to their squad after their second summer signing yesterday in the form of Emre Can.
Can joins Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee believed to be in the region of £10 million and the Liverpool Echo says Brendan Rodgers is still looking to add to his squad having made bids for Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno and Southampton’s Adam Lallana.
The Can deal was held up by contractual clauses according to the report but was agreed in principle yesterday, and a deal for Moreno is edging closer.
The Daily Mirror is citing reports in Spain saying that Liverpool have agreed a five-year deal with the player, and a fee of around £17.9 million.
Despite earlier reports suggesting that the Reds may use young midfielder Suso as a makeweight, it’s understood that the player who spent his time on loan at Almeria last season will not be used in this particular deal.
Away from transfers, chairman Tom Werner has said the redevelopment of Anfield will be FSG’s legacy at the club, following the submission of planning application to the city council to expand the stadium to close to a capacity of 60,000.
Werner is quoted in the Daily Telegraph saying: “This will be our legacy at Liverpool, resolving the stadium issue.
“It will be the most exciting day at Anfield when we can welcome the additional supporters to the stadium.
“I think this will change the future of the club. What has been hanging over the club’s head is we simply could not accept the status quo.”
