Liverpool Fc Transfer Rumours: Latest on Benteke, Mertens, Illarramendi and Digne

The Premier League outfit Liverpool have been linked with quite a few potential players this summer. The Reds are pushing hard to bolster their squad and be more competitive in the battle for the league title. According to recent Liverpool Fc transfer rumours, they are trying to lure Belgian-duo Benteke and Mertens at the Anfield. Reportedly they are also in talks with Real Madrid over their defensive midfielder Illarramendi, and keeping tabs on Paris Saint Germain defender Lucas Digne.

The Reds are highly interested in the physically powerful Belgian forward. They have already inquired about his availability in this summer window, but couldn’t manage to seal the deal. As per Liverpool Fc transfer rumours, the Merseyside club are ready to spend plenty hard cash to get his service.

Liverpool had to struggle in the last campaign because of the poor performance of their forwards. They couldn’t provide goals that their team needed. Both Lambert and Balotelli were utterly ‘flop of the season’ as the duo only scored 3 goals in their total 41 league appearances.

After the departure of Luis Suarez the Reds seemed quite harmless in front of the opposition’s d-box. Their star striker Sturridge had an injury-affected season, which caused them to suffer throughout the 2014-15 season.

Liverpool are now planning to bring some deadly strikers to add more firepower in their attack. It seems that Benteke fulfills all the criteria and will be a perfect choice to play alongside Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool will have to pay £32.5million to Aston Villa if they really want to see Benteke in the deep red jersey.

Dries Mertens

 

Liverpool are pondering to bid for Napoli’s Belgian winger Dries Mertens. The Reds are monitoring the present situation about Mertens’ future. The wide-midfielder has already linked with a lot of speculations as his agent indicated that Mertens would evaluate the possibility to join a new club in this summer.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is an admirer of the 28-year-old agile winger. As per latest Liverpool Fc transfer rumours, Rodgers might have to let go of his prime asset Raheem Sterling this summer. He will try to replace the youngster’s place with the old legs of Mertens.

Mertens scored 10 goals in his 47 appearances for Napoli in the last season. The Belgian wing-man managed to score at least 10 goals in the last five seasons with three different teams.

Despite enjoying a good season with the Partenopei, Mertens didn’t get the chance to touch any major trophy this term which could compel him to seek success in a different team, according to recent rumours.

Asier Illarramendi

 

The Reds are preparing to bid for Real Madrid’s surplus defensive midfielder Asier Illarramendi. Liverpool will have to pay £15 million to the Los Blancos to lure the midfielder at the English top flight.

Illarramendi couldn’t cement his spot in the first eleven for Madrid, despite his big-money move from Real Sociedad. According to Fichajes.net, he had become frustrated with his lack of first team involvement.

Liverpool Fc are considering about a move for PSG defender Lucas Digne to solidify their defense line.

Lucas Digne

 

Digne signed for the Ligue 1 champions from their league rival Losc Lille two years back when he was in his best form and considered as one of the most valuable upcoming youth players. But he had been the number 2 choice at the Parc des Princes. Last season he appeared in only 15 matches for his side which is much lesser time for a player like this caliber.

The first choice Maxwell has recently signed a new contract with the club which will keep him at the club till the end of his career. With no confirmation to play regular matches, Digne might consider his career away from France. This intriguing situation has kept the Liverpool Fc transfer rumours buzzing.
