Jurgen Klopp is continuingly looking to strengthen his squad, as Liverpool have been given a couple of transfer boost for next summer.
First, Ilkay Gundogan is unwilling to sign a contract extention at Borussia Dortmund. The midfielder’s current deal expires in June 2017 and the Bundesliga giants have been trying to extend it all season long.
However, the 25-year-old has refused to agree to new terms with Dortmund and has told the club he will definitely not be signing a new deal, accoring to Sport Bild and reported by talkSPORT, with Dortmund already having identified Borussia Monchengladbach’s Mahmoud Dahoud as a possible replacement.
This comes as great news to Klopp and Liverpool. However, the Reds will have to battle Arsenal and Manchester City, as well as Italian champions Juventus, for Gundogan’s services.
Next up, Neven Subotic. Liverpool failed to secure a loan move for the defender in January, but according to Sport Bild, the defender could be available for less than £4 million this summer.
The Reds will have to compete with Bundesliga club Hamburg, as they look to revamp their squad and Subotic tops their wish list.
However, Hamburg are struggling with financial problems, having to deal with £70 million worth of debt, and could therefore be beaten to the centre-back by Liverpool.
Klopp has also added Real Betis’s goalkeeper Antonio Adan to his list of potential transfers. According to Spanish outlet AS, the 28-year-old has a £6.2 million release clause in his contract.
Last but not least, according to Liverpool Echo the Reds could make a swoop for defensive midfielder Havard Nordtveit, who’s out of contract with Borussia Monchengladbach and is not close to signing a new deal with the Bundesliga club.
Their sporting director, Max Eberl, told Bild (via Liverpool Echo): “We made him a very, very good offer and I am still optimistic. But when it comes to the money, we have no chance [against the Premier League].”
