Liverpool round-up: £26million move for Gremio’s Luan; deal agreed for Andrew Robertson; battle over Ricardo Rodriguez

Written by

The Mirror claim that Liverpool have agreed a £26 million fee for Gremio striker Luan ahead of a potential summer move to bring the Brazilian to Anfield to join up with his compatriots Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho in the Liverpool attack. Luan could follow in the footsteps of Lucas Leiva in making the switch between the clubs.

The 24-year-old has scored three goals in as many games in the Copa Libertadores this season and has caught the eye with his movement and sharp finishing. Capable of playing on both the left wing and in a central striker role, it’s thought that talks between the player and the club are now imminent.

The club could already have tied up a deal for one player this summer though, as the Mirror believe that the Reds have already reached an agreement with Hull City left-back Andrew Robertson, with an announcement expected once the season has come to an end with the Tigers facing a relegation battle.

Jurgen Klopp is also thought to be interested in Robertson’s team-mate Harry Maguire, who has made himself a stern presence in defence this season as he has established himself as a Premier League player after working his way up through the Football League before joining Hull.

Those reports could be wide of the mark though as conflicting stories in the Mirror argue that the Reds are still preparing a move for Wolfsburg left-back Ricardo Rodriguez as a solution the problem position at Anfield. A battle with Italian giants AC Milan could be required for the Colombian.

Rodriguez is known as a strong defender as well as an attacking threat when he bombs down the left flank, but a move for him could be more challenging than a move for Robertson given the interest in him from across the continent.
