Jurgen Klopp post Southampton press conference

Liverpool are flying in the Premier League and in Europe right now.

Jurgen Klopp is enjoying having his key first team stars back in regular action after the injury problems piled up last season.

The Reds look destined for a thrilling three-way title race with Manchester City and Chelsea.

That is despite the fact Klopp made only one signing this summer in RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.

The club’s FSG owners could back Klopp more in the New Year, and the January transfer window is fast approaching.

Here, Mirror Football has rounded up all the latest transfer gossip surrounding Anfield.

Kylian Mbappe might have handed Liverpool a fresh boost in their reported ambitious interest in the Paris Saint-Germain superstar.

Diario AS in Spain claim contract talks between Mbappe and PSG have reached a stalemate.

The Frenchman is in the final year of his deal at PSG and will be free to leave for nothing if a new contract is not agreed.

No progress in talks in Paris could intrigue Liverpool, but Real Madrid remain firm favourites at this stage for the 22-year-old’s signature.

Mohamed Salah is one of the world’s best players right now and it seems remarkable that he could be listed as a ‘plan B’ option for any of Europe’s elite clubs.

But a report in El Nacional states that this is indeed the case, with Salah considered an alternate option to Mbappe for Real Madrid.

Los Blancos look determined to make a statement marquee signing, and Mbappe and Salah are two of the most electrifying attackers in Europe.

Salah’s contract situation remains unresolved at Anfield and that has led to rumours over his future with 18 months left on his current deal.

But the Egyptian star continues to reiterate his loyalty towards Liverpool and is in the best form of his life on Merseyside.

A move to the Bernabeu seems highly unlikely at this stage and Liverpool are expected to do everything in their power to keep their star man for a little longer.

Crouch tips Bellingham signing

Bellingham is one of Europe’s hottest young prospects

Peter Crouch expects a big summer of spending at Anfield next year and believes Jude Bellingham is the perfect midfield signing.

Borussia Dortmund star Bellingham is one of Europe’s hottest young prospects right now and continues to be linked with a move to the Premier League.

But it would likely take a gargantuan fee for Liverpool to secure the England international’s services.

“Next summer will be interesting, Liverpool feel like they are due a big one, and you’re possibly looking at something extra in midfield,” Crouch wrote in his Daily Mail column.

“Jude Bellingham would fit in perfectly, as long as it is not to the detriment of Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones, who have suffered cruel luck with injuries.”
