Liverpool among clubs interested in Kerem Demirbay

  Liverpool among clubs interested in Kerem Demirbay Liverpool decided not to replace Philippe Coutinho in January after selling the attacking midfielder to Barcelona in a deal worth £142m but the Reds are determined to recruit a replacement in the summer transfer window. Jurgen Klopp’s side have been mentioned among a host of top European clubs as a potential suitor for highly-rated Hoffenheim midfielder Kerem Demirbay. The 24-year-old has two goals and five assists so far this season for Hoffenheim and is also on the radar of Arsenal, Everton, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Schalke and Borussia Dortmund. Milan and Dortmund are understood to be the club’s leading the race for Demirbay’s signature following an impressive campaign. Demirbay signed a new contract with Hoffenheim last year which includes a release clause of just €32m which is a relatively small fee in today’s market. With the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Everton, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Schalke and Borussia Dortmund all keen on the midfielder, Hoffenheim face a fight to keep ahold of Demirbay in the summer.

Liverpool are reportedly leading the race to sign Deportivo La Coruna striker Pinchi this summer. The 22-year-old has been deemed surplus to requirements by Deportivo so far this season, failing to make a single appearance for the senior side and instead turning out for the club's B team .

Having lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in the January transfer window, you could argue that Liverpool are short of options in the wide areas in attack and the Reds have been linked with a move for Deportivo youngster Pinchi.

The 22-year-old is yet to make his debut for the senior Deportivo side in La Liga but is the star man of their B team competing in the Segunda División B Group 1 in Spain’s third tier.

Pinchi is a native of A Coruna and came through the ranks at Deportivo, but his form this season, netting six goals in 22 appearances thus far, has alerted a number of top European clubs, with considerable interest coming from the Premier League.

His contract with Deportivo expires in the summer and the rapid winger is a reported target for Liverpool, according to the Guardian, who note the Reds have moved ahead of Manchester United and Tottenham in the race to secure his signature.

Nabil Fekir is one Lyon attacker that Arsenal want to sign in order to link up again with former teammate Alexandre Lacazette, but the Gunners are being linked with a second. The Guardian note that both Arsenal and Barcelona are interested in signing highly-rated Lyon teenager Willem Geubbels in the summer following a breakthrough campaign in France. Geubbels made his first-team debut for Lyon in September 2017 and has made four appearances for the club this season and could be on the move in the summer. With his contract expiring after this season, Lyon were hoping to persuade the 16-year-old to sign a first professional contract with the club but it seems as if he will leave. Both Bayern Munich and Chelsea reportedly held talks to sign the attacker during the January transfer window and both Liverpool and Tottenham were linked with a move for the France U17 international earlier in January but now Arsenal and Barcelona have joined the race.
