Liverpool’s transfer pursuits: City and Chelsea in the mix

Liverpool FC is making significant moves in the transfer market as they prepare for the upcoming season. The club has recently secured the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. Liverpool’s transfer pursuits have, however, coincided with Man City and Chelsea targets.

In the midst of these developments, the club is also eyeing French superstar Kylian Mbappe. Chelsea has entered negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain for a cash-plus-player deal to bring the talented forward to the Premier League. PSG has officially put Mbappe on the transfer market after he declined to extend his contract beyond the 2023/24 season. The French club is reportedly supportive of Chelsea’s efforts to secure the 24-year-old’s signature.

Interestingly, Liverpool was previously reported to be in talks with PSG over a loan move for Mbappe. The Reds allegedly offered a one-year loan deal, giving Mbappe the opportunity to fulfill his dream move to Real Madrid while generating revenue for PSG.

Another transfer target on Liverpool’s radar is RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol. An “impasse” between Leipzig and Manchester City has opened the door for Liverpool, who now considers making a move for Gvardiol. The Reds have reportedly made an £85m bid for the highly-rated centre-back. Manchester United and Chelsea are also showing interest in Gvardiol.

Moreover, Liverpool has shown interest in midfielder Gabri Veiga, currently under Celta Vigo’s management led by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez. The 22-year-old impressed last season, scoring 11 La Liga goals, attracting attention from several clubs including PSG and Arsenal. Liverpool has scouted Veiga and engaged in discussions with Benitez about a possible signing. The player values regular game time. A potential loan-back arrangement could also be on the cards if he joins a big Premier League club.

As Liverpool continues its reinforcements, these potential acquisitions will undoubtedly be watched closely by fans and rivals alike. The club faces stiff competition from other top Premier League sides The securing top talents like Kylian Mbappe, Josko Gvardiol, or Gabri Veiga would further bolster Liverpool’s ambitions for domestic and international success.
