Liverpool transfer gossip as Juventus set star’s price and Sporting deal blow

As the Premier League season approaches an end, attention is beginning to turn to next campaign.

Liverpool remain in the race to secure a Champions League place and will be fully aware of just how costly missing out on the top four could prove to be.

The transfer market is expected to operate at a reduced level as clubs get to grips with the financial fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, though big clubs are still likely to recruit new stars.

Jurgen Klopp will be looking to add to his group as the Reds look to mount a title challenge – but just who could be on their way to Anfield?

We have taken a look at the latest rumours below…

Sporting Lisbon have dealt Liverpool a blow in their bid to sign midfielder Pedro Goncalves.
