‘Not interested’: Liverpool now set to reject chance to sign £30m club top scorer – journalist

Liverpool under manager Jurgen Klopp have never been a team to rush into transfers.

Their recruitment over the past few years has been measured, with their squad turnover being relatively slow.

A report from journalist Ben Jacobs, via Give Me Sport, suggests another potential target is now unlikely to arrive at Anfield.

It was a case of one player in, one player out in Liverpool’s attack over the summer.

The influential Sadio Mane made his way to Bayern Munich, and was replaced by Darwin Nunez.

After a mixed start to life at Liverpool, Nunez was just hitting form before the World Cup break.

However, he’s a very different player to Mane, and after an injury to Luis Diaz, Liverpool looked short of ideas on the wing.

Jacobs now believes that Liverpool are not interested in signing Brighton attacker Leandro Trossard.

Trossard has been in sensational form for the Seagulls this season, and is their top scorer with seven goals.

He’s got plenty of suitors, including Newcastle, but Liverpool now looks unlikely to be his next destination.

Liverpool not interested in signing Trossard

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Jacobs provided the following update on the Belgian’s future.

“We’ll have to wait and see whether United decide to look a little bit closer to home and see whether there’s that shorter term and closer to home goalscorer that they might be able to attract,” Jacobs said.

“We know, for example, that Trossard at Brighton is being put in the shop window by his agent.

“He’s been offered to Manchester United, he’s been offered to Liverpool and he’s been offered to Chelsea. Liverpool are not interested.”

The £30m-rated forward looks set to leave Brighton in the near future, either in January or the summer.

His manager Roberto De Zerbi is keen for Trossard to extend his deal at the club, but at this time it looks unlikely.

Trossard has been brought on by Belgium manager Roberto Martinez in both of their World Cup matches so far.

The Red Devils have looked poor in their opening two games, and need to beat Croatia to progress.

With Liverpool not interested in signing Trossard, the 27-year-old will need to put in some good performances to convince another team he’s worth signing.

Meanwhile, Klopp will hope the solution to Liverpool’s poor form this season exists within his squad already.
