Liverpool news round-up: club to complete deal, right-back on radar, club suffer blow

Liverpool to complete deal for 24-year-old versatile attacker

Liverpool are hoping to finalize a deal to re-land Suso from AC Milan upcoming summer after failing in a move for the winger in January transfer window.

Spanish daily sports newspaper Marca, as quoted by Sky Sports claim that the Reds want to land the player after seeing him develop in Serie A.

Suso has been one of Milan’s important players since joining the club and the Italian giants will demand that the player’s €40 million release (buy-out) clause is met for any deal to take place.

The Spaniard was strongly linked with an Anfield return in January transfer window when Philippe Coutinho left the club for Spanish sides Barcelona.

Milan held their own and rejected to deal with a spot in the top four of Serie A not out of the question for the club at the time.

Suso is an all-around attacker who has been used mostly on the right side during his time at the San Siro.

German manager Jurgen Klopp will surely be looking to bolster his squad over the summer to build upon Liverpool’s success current season.

Liverpool set to battle it out with EPL rivals for 25-year-old star

According to Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are both keen on SS Lazio right-back Adam Marusic ahead of the summer transfer window.

Adam had a fairly restrained opening to his career, starting out with Teleoptik and Vozdovac in the home country, before heading to Belgium with Kortrijk and Oostende.

Having made an impression with his goalscoring ability from the right side, netting 15 goals in 106 league appearances in Belgium, SS Lazio swooped to sign the Montenegrin international, and he has played an important part this season.

Appearing as a right wing back in Simone Inzaghi’s team, Marusic has made 33 games in all competitions this campaign, netting three goals and providing six assists whilst continuing to be fairly unheralded in a squad containing bigger names such as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Stefan de Vrij and Ciro Immobile.

After all, Adam Marusic does appear to have caught the eye with his performances, as Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport now report that both Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool – as well as Italian giants Inter Milan – are keen to land him this summer.

Liverpool dealt huge blow as target exclude summer move

AS Roma shot-stopper and reported Liverpool goal Alisson Becker has been quoted as saying by Italian tabloid Tuttomercatoweb that he is content at the Italian club.

According to top British news outlet The Daily Mirror, Liverpool are interested in landing Alisson Becker from AS Roma in the summer transfer window.

European and Spanish giants Real Madrid are also stated to be interested in the 25-year-old goalkeeper, who is reported by The Daily Mirror to be valued at £52 million.

The Brazil international shot-stopper, though, has suggested that he is not planning to depart from AS Roma in the summer transfer window.

Tuttomercatoweb quotes Alisson Ramses Becker as saying: “My future? I am thinking only of the present and of Roma. I am happy here and I have a contract.

“My family is fine and I only think about playing with my team, with whom I feel really good.”

With Italian giants facing Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League current season, the two matches will be a sort of auction for the Brazilian.

The 25-year-old may be delighted at AS Roma for the time being, but the Italian club could be tempted to cash in on him if The Reds come with an offer of over £50m.
