Liverpool latest signings news (Liverpool transfer rumors) – Who have Liverpool signed?
Another great source of Liverpool transfer rumors is who has Liverpool signed in 2020?
When the January 2020 window, shut close and Liverpool left almost as they came, many fans were surprised. Jurgen Klopp has indeed put together a good team. However, his team needs new players to complete the squad, and Jurgen despite shortlisting many could not get his hands on anyone.
However, as January rolled into February, Liverpool surprised everyone with their big-name Liverpool transfer rumors. February is not usually a time when you sign players but it was another start of a rumor for Timo Werner. The player himself played up the hype when he said he would love to play at Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool transfer rumors 2020
Let us now move into who the Reds might be looking to sign come summer. The transfer market is a tough place now. Luckily for the Reds, they did not spend much last season on any new player. They also went on to win Champions League 2019, Club World Cup 2020, and now have almost wrapped up Premier League this season. It means Liverpool owners will unleash a rather heavy war chest. Some have reported that the amount is likely to be in the region of above £200 million!
It will certainly be a huge advantage for Liverpool. So let us see who they are interested in signing.
Defense – Liverpool transfer rumors
Let us start with defense obviously!
Goalkeeper – Joe Hart
The Reds are very happy with Alisson Becker in the goal. He has lived up to the mark and the club-record signing for £70 million for a goalie has been well spent. He is expected to become one of the best in the world after bursting on the scene at Anfield and won the golden glove last year at FIFA’s best awards and also could be a perfect addition to Jurgen’s Liverpool for years to come now. He will need a back up however. Adrian majorly upset Liverpool by committing match changing errors in the CL match against Atletico.
One rumor has suggested former England and Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart can be a good replacement.
Left Back – Ryan Bertrand
This is one area Liverpool desperately need to back up. Their current option is only Andy Robertson who is world class. However, they need a back up if they want to win multiple competitions. A possibly good deal could be the chase for Ryan Bertrand, the Southampton captain. He is a former Chelsea reject but has done well of late. He will add good intensity to the squad and can be vital for Liverpool.
Centre Back – Kalidou Koulibaly/ Dayot Upamecano/ Jerome Boateng/ Gabriel Magalhaes/ Samuel Umtiti
This is a position where the Reds lack a partner for Virgil Van Dijk. With Gomez and Matip, they have prospects and Lovren should be leaving soon. So the backline lacks depth besides VVD. Upamecano is a good player for the future but Liverpool needs someone who can take charge now. Boateng has plenty of experience but maybe past his prime. However, Koulibaly would tick all boxes and really take Liverpool to the next level. He will not come cheap though with Napoli last time asking for around £100 million for him! The Gabriel Magalhaes situation is also favorable since he is developing fast and has expressed interest in changing clubs but Liverpool will have to fight Chelsea!!
Midfield – Liverpool Transfer Rumors
This is where Reds have plenty of options so additions should be minimum.
Center Midfielder – Sandro Tonali/ Isco/ Declan Rice/ Thiago
The Reds have Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner ready to fill in this role and Curtis Jones too if need be. Hence, these are not priority signings. Sandro Tonali would definitely be one for the future as many clubs are already after him. As for Isco, he is world-class and Liverpool despite not needing him, might go for him as he will increase the level and quality in that midfield.
However, Thiago is the one who is most likely to join the team. His Bayern bosses have accepted he will leave and so Liverpool have to pay very little to get the 29-year-old midfield maestro.
Attack – Liverpool Transfer Rumors
This is another area of major concern for the Reds. Check out who is being lined up for transfer targets!
Left-wing, Right-wing Forward – Ousmane Dembele/Jadon Sancho/ Philippe Coutinho/ Adama Traore/ Willian
Wingers will be of great importance to this attacking-minded Liverpool team. Right now they have Mo Salah and Sadio Mane with Shaqiri as back up. Divock Origi is a forward in essence. Philippe Coutinho is being seen as a likely option with Jurgen Klopp a huge fan of the player. He has already played for Liverpool and can be a star again. Ousmane Dembele has seen his career go wayward in Barcelona. However, at this young age a new start could do wonders for him. Especially with his bright Liverpool team.
Jadon Sancho is the big prize money. He has a host of clubs on his tail with Manchester United believed to the lead. Sancho will almost definitely leave Dortmund this summer and is expected to break the British transfer record. Well, Jurgen does have money for that.
Another unstoppable player Liverpool have been linked with is Adama Traore. The Wolves explosive winger is highly rated and Klopp really likes him. He could be on his way to Anfield as well!
The Reds are also reportedly in talks to coup up Chelsea’s soon to become free agent Willian! He has openly stated that the club and him are at a stalemate. It means Liverpool are free to sign him for nothing in the summer! He would be a brilliant squad player!
Centre-Forward – Dries Mertens/ Moussa Dembele/ Lautaro Martinez
Firmino, Mane and Salah are world class but cannot play all 60 matches a season. They need someone to take the load off htem. With Origi as only one back up, Liverpool is looking at options. Dries Mertens is a free agent and could be useful for a few seasons to Liverpool. Timo Werner was also on Liverpool’s radar and but Chelsea won the race there.
The chase for Martinez will see Liverpool take on Barcelona who are seriously in need of a striker.
