Nagendra / 15 August 2016

Liverpool have been very decent in the transfer window as Jurgen Klopp has brought up young talented players and looks happy with the current squad. However, the German is keen to work on the weak areas in the squad as the Reds look to bring back their glory days.

The latest injury to Milner meant Klopp should get back to the market to get a potential left back going into the new season. Here we look at all the transfer stories around the Merseyside club.

According to The Sun, Turkish giants Besiktas are chasing Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho.

Sakho sent home after rumoured rift with manager Klopp.

Liverpool are set to miss out on Sporting Lisbon forward Joao Mario as Inter Milan is close to finalizing the deal, according to O Jogo. Both Chelsea and Liverpool are interested in the player but are not willing to pay the massive fee that Inter Milan are reportedly offering.
