The latest Liverpool transfer rumours and more this Monday evening.

Liverpool are interested in signing AC Milan full-back Mattia De Sciglio according to Gazzetta di Parma, although Milan could want up to 20 million Euros (£16.9 million) for the player.

The Reds have just one recognised left-back at the club in Alberto Moreno, although James Milner looks set to act as cover for the coming season according to the Liverpool Echo, having filled in the role a couple of times during pre-season games so far. 

One man who looks as if he could be leaving Liverpool on a permanent deal is Luis Alberto, according to a couple of reports. Alberto has made 12 appearances for the Reds but has spent the last two seasons on loan at Malaga and Deportivo La Coruna.

A possible return to Sevilla appears to have fallen through, with Goal reporting the Europa League winners were prepared to pay £2 million, which was rejected because Liverpool wanted around £6 million. The Liverpool Echo reports that three Championship clubs have shown interest in the Spaniard with Wolves, Queens Park Rangers and Aston Villa targeting the player. 

Away from transfers and Liverpool have suffered another injury blow on their tour of the United States, this time with young midfielder Ovie Ejaria, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Ejaria recently impressed in the defeat to Chelsea last week but has picked up a groin injury, joining a pretty lengthy injury list.

Midfielder Emre Can has said he is ready to get into action after a short time off after being part of the Germany side that reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016.

Can is likely to be a regular starter when the season gets underway and could make his first appearance of pre-season in the early hours of the morning when the Reds take on Roma in St Louis.

He told the official Liverpool website: “It was a short break for me but I enjoyed it. Last season was a long season for me. Now after the break, I’m ready to play football again.

“I didn’t have such a long time off and I didn’t lose too much fitness. I feel that in training."
