As we approach deadline day on Thursday, it would be hard to find a Liverpool fan who isn’t extremely excited for the start of the new Premier League season after the Reds terrific summer transfer window.
However, it’s looking like there will be more goings than comings for Jurgen Klopp’s side as the window nears its end, but there’s a certain Frenchman whose name is still being branded about to join Klopp’s merry men at Anfield.
Here at The Boot Room, we take a look at three deals that could be completed by the Merseyside club during the final week of the transfer window.
Will Fekir join Liverpool?
French outlet L’Equipe stated this morning, as reported by the Mirror, that Lyon midfielder Nabil Fakir will sign a new deal with the French side preventing any move to Liverpool during this transfer window.
It seems as though Liverpool have called off all interest in the player; for now, and will return to the negotiation table next month with a fresh outlook and deal to pull through a move in January or next summer.
Markovic in demand
Belgian giants Anderlecht have made an offer for Lazar Markovic to join their side next season, according to Sporx.
Markovic joined Liverpool from Benfica in 2014 for £20 million, and the Reds will want to graft back some of that fee before considering selling the winger. However, reports suggest the 24-year-old isn’t in Jurgen Klopp’s plans for the new season.
Spanish sides Getafe and Leganes have also shown an interest in signing the winger, but their valuation of the player currently doesn’t meet that of the Reds.
Interest in top Bundesliga talent
20-year-old wonder kid Leon Bailey has stated this week that there is concrete evidence from Liverpool and Chelsea to sign him from Bundesliga side Bayern Leverkusen this summer.
According to German outlet Kicker, Liverpool are in the hunt for the talented winger, who netted 12 goals and seven assists in 44 appearances for Leverkusen last season in the Bundesliga.
It’s unlikely Liverpool will make a move for the winger before Thursday. However, this is one to watch for the future and a move we could see happening at some point.
