Liverpool transfer news as $63m defender and Ryan Gravenberch linked amid double Jürgen Klopp need



Liverpool transfer news: Jürgen Klopp will likely see the need to strengthen key areas such as defense and midfield after Real Madrid and an inconsistent season exposed his side’s weaknesses.

With Liverpool needing to strengthen themselves in a number of key areas this summer, it’s no surprise that rumors are circulating that the Reds have been linked with a number of established names.

Jürgen Klopp’s side were humiliated in their mid-week clash with Real Madrid, with the side’s weaknesses in both defense and midfield being painfully apparent. It was actually an inconsistent season, to put it mildly, as the Reds and weaknesses in these areas had already come to light over the course of the season.

The good news is that you’d probably expect Liverpool to try and patch things up with several deals this summer. It should come as no surprise that the key links have been in the Reds’ problem areas in recent days, with a number of potential targets emerging that could be
ultimately offering solutions for Klopp.

Liverpool are hoping to end their woes against Crystal Palace this weekend, but even if they manage to reach the top four at the end of this Premier League campaign, Klopp will likely see the summer as an opportunity for a reset. Below are all of the biggest Liverpool transfer rumors to have surfaced over the past day:

Alessandro Bastoni (Inter)

After Liverpool’s mid-week defensive woes against Real Madrid and uncertainty over Joel Matip’s long-term future, it may be time for the Reds to add some reinforcements in that part of the pitch.

And according to Fichajes, Jürgen Klopp’s staff could be one step closer in this regard, with Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni reportedly a target. Of course, the top-flight centre-back wouldn’t come cheap and is valued at $63m (£53m/€60m). According to Calciomercatoweb, the 17-time international is attracting interest from other clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid and Spurs, so Liverpool probably wouldn’t be too happy if they tried to sign the Italian this summer.

Says It’s probably not a huge surprise that Liverpool have been linked with another centre-back, especially considering Matip now has less than 18 months on his contract. Joe Gomez has also been inconsistent this season and his latest appearance against Real Madrid will worry many.

However, Liverpool will need a high quality centre-back if they are to sign another this summer, and Bastoni would be perfect for that. He’s the type of player you can imagine being on the Reds’ radar. Ryan Gravenberch (Bayern Munich)

One player who could be an option for Liverpool to revive their midfield this summer is Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch. The 20-year-old has struggled for playing time at the Allianz Arena so far this season following his summer transfer from Ajax.

The Dutchman may be positive about the chance to start again and according to Sport1, Liverpool would follow his situation with particular interest. Reportedly, the Reds have already inquired about Gravenberch’s availability, only for the German giants to reject this approach – perhaps they might be more receptive in the summer.

try to prove his worth to his current employers, but it wouldn’t be too surprising if suitors lined up when the youngster became available this summer. Playing consistently and with distinction in one of Europe’s top leagues as a teenager probably means you’re a talented player. One would imagine that his prime is ahead of him and Liverpool could do much worse than sign him if the situation arises.

Mount Mason (Chelsea)

Chelsea star Mason Mount is quickly starting to rival Jude Bellingham over the player most associated with a move to Liverpool before the summer, and another detail seems to have surfaced today regarding his future.

The England ace is believed to be sold by Stamford Bridge Club if the two sides fail to reach an agreement before the summer, according to a source close to TeamTalk, which will be music to Liverpoolers’ ears.

According to them, Chelsea are still hopeful of a deal with Mount, but with talks deadlocked since the player’s return from the World Cup in Qatar, time is slowly passing. says: Another day, another Mason Mount rumour! Since reports surfaced of a stalemate between Mount and his club, it looked like Liverpool would be high on the list of suitors should Chelsea decide to cash in on their fortunes.

There is a feeling the Mount’s future is far from certain and with Liverpool set to lose up to four first-team midfielders this summer, a deal for everyone would make a lot of sense.
