Liverpool Transfer News: Chirivella Deal Agreed | Boss Eyes £20m Bid For Swiss Winger
With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest Liverpool transfer rumours. Today, the Reds have agreed a deal with Pedro Chirivella while Brendan Rodgers also eyes a £20m move for Xherdan Shaqiri.
Chirivella deal agreed
First up and the Mirror are reporting that Liverpool have agreed terms with Pedro Chirivella over a move to Anfield but the Reds are prepared to let a tribunal agree a fee after Valencia demanded £3.5m for the youngster.
The 17-year-old is regarded as one of Spain’s most exciting young talents but with him still on a youth contact, the Mirror claim Liverpool have swooped in and agreed a four-year deal with the midfielder and he’ll now be heading to Merseyside this summer.
The newspaper also reports that Valencia are demanding £3.5m for Chirivella but Liverpool have so far only offered £1.5m and are prepared to let an independent tribunal decide what compensation should be paid.
Boss Brendan Rodgers has been getting his business done early this summer and while he’s largely been concentrating on strengthening his first team, it seems he’s also making sure the future looks bright by snapping up one of Spain’s hottest young properties.
Rodgers eyes Shaqiri
Next up and the Metro are reporting that Liverpool are prepared to pay up to £20m in order to sign Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri this summer.
The Swiss international has struggled to establish himself as a first team regular since making the move to Bayern from FA Basel last summer, and after missing out on the signature of Henrikh Mkhitaryan last week it seems Rodgers now has his eyes firmly set on Shaqiri.
The Metro claim the Reds are ready to open talks with the European champions over the 21-year-old and while Bayern are understood to favour a year-long loan deal, Rodgers is only interested in a permanent switch and is prepared to pay £20m to get his man.
Shaqiri will meet with new boss Pep Guardiola sometime this week to discuss his future at the Allianz Arena and the newspaper suggests the winger is expected to ask for a move if he isn’t given assurances he’ll be more involved in the first team this season, and Liverpool will be ready to offer him a fresh start in the Premier League if the player wants out.
