Two deals have been done at Liverpool today, one incoming and one outgoing. Firstly, Liverpool announced on their website that they have completed the signing of Estonian defender Ragnar Klavan for a fee believed to be worth £4.2 million, the Daily Mirror and other outlets reports. 

Upon completing his move, Klavan said: “It’s hard to put it into words, because it’s been a dream of mine for 22 years to come to the Premier League and be a part of this amazing club, Liverpool."

The other done deal that the Reds confirmed was that goalkeeper Adam Bogdan has left the club to join Championship side Wigan Athletic on a season-long loan, a year after joining the Reds on a free transfer from Bolton Wanderers.

Liverpool have also been strongly linked with a move for Newcastle's Georgino Wijnaldum in recent days and the Northern Echo has reported that a deal is close to completion.

They say Liverpool's interest in the midfielder has strengthened significantly in the past 48 hours in a deal that could be worth around £25 million. Sky Sports have reported that Liverpool could have one less rival in the race to land the Dutch midfielder as Tottenham have said to have ended their interest in the player.

The Northern Echo's report also goes on to say the future of Moussa Sissoko at Newcastle is uncertain, and he is another player that Liverpool have been linked to, this time by ESPN.

They say the Reds, along with Serie A Champions Juventus, are ready to firm up their interest in the French international, who would prefer to remain in the Premier League.  

Newcastle are interested in a loan move for young Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo, according to a report in the Daily Star.

The Star reports that Rafa Benitez is a big fan of the 19-year-old but Klopp would like to keep Ojo at Anfield for the coming season. 

Liverpool are in pre-season friendly action tonight against Huddersfield Town at the John Smiths Stadium. It is their final friendly before they go on their pre-season tour of the United States.

Manager Klopp has been speaking to the club's website about his players performances for the rest of pre-season going into the next league campaign.

He said: “We will have to build a really strong team and we will have a really strong squad, and that’s up to the players who want to be in the starting line-up, who want to improve and who want to show their best."
