Liverpool have had another great summer of recruitment and they could be looking to make one more signing on deadline day.
They have been one of the eye-catching teams in the Premier League, as they have signed Fabinho, Alisson Becker and Xherdan Shaqiri. However, the supporters would like to see one more addition on the final day of the transfer window.
It would provide them with even more momentum going into the season. In addition to incomings, Liverpool need to clear out some of the deadwood. That will be another aim for deadline day. Below we discuss three ins and outs the Reds could complete on Thursday.
Nabil Fekir (Lyon)
This has been one of the transfer sagas of the summer as Nabil Fekir was moments away from becoming a Liverpool player before his move fell through.
The Telegraph reported that the deal fell through due to problems with the medical, despite a £53 million fee being agreed between the two clubs.
Although this deal is unlikely, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Liverpool did try to reopen talks on deadline day. Fekir is clearly a player that they like a lot and they haven’t managed to bring in an advanced midfielder in this transfer window. Stranger things have happened.
Danny Ings (Premier League loan)
There has been speculation linking Danny Ings with a move away from Anfield all summer. His injury problems have plagued his time with Liverpool and it would be beneficial for him to continue his recovery elsewhere.
He isn’t going to get first-team football at Liverpool and he desperately needs that if he is to get back to his best.
The Evening Standard report that he is set to leave before the transfer deadline, with Crystal Palace and Southampton rumoured as possible destinations. One or two more clubs may emerge in the race as Thursday progresses.
Divock Origi (Crystal Palace)
The Belgian international is another forward that doesn’t have a future with Liverpool and El Des Marque report that Crystal Palace have launched an £18 million bid for him. Valencia are discussed as another possible destination for the striker.
It is difficult to comment on the reliability of the source, but Origi is likely to leave Liverpool this month. That said, a move abroad is more likely and that means his exit may not happen on Thursday as the rest of Europe can still buy players until the end of the month.
