With the summer transfer window set to re-open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Liverpool have targetted Ron-Robert Zieler as a potential replacement for Pepe Reina but face competition for Kurt Zouma.
Reds Target Zieler
First up and the Daily Mail are reporting that Liverpool have identified Hannover goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler as a potential replacement for Pepe Reina – who remains a target for Barcelona.
Reina has been heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp in recent weeks as the La Liga champions look for a replacement for Victor Valdes, who’s confirmed he wont be signing a new deal with the Catalans.
While Brendan Rodgers is thought to be keen to keep hold of his No.1, the Mail claim he’s lining-up potential targets in-case Reina decides he wants to return to Spain and the Reds boss has sounded out Hannover’s impressive stopper Zieler.
The 24-year-old spent a season on-loan at Northampton back in 2008 and has since gone on to cement himself as Hannover’s No.1 and broken into the German national team – earning two caps so far.
Juve enter Zouma chase
Next up and the express are reporting that Liverpool face stiff competition from Juventus for the signature of St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma this summer.
Brendan Rodgers is desperately trying to find a replacement for the retired Jamie Carragher and the Express claim he’s keen on French under-19 international Zouma, who’s been in superb form at the back for St Etienne this season and is valued at £10m by the Ligue 1 outfit.
However, Italians champions Juventus are also understood to be tracking the 18-year-old and it appears it could be a straight fight between the two for one of French football’s most talented young prospects.
