Arsenal and Chelsea join the race for Jasper Cillessen

  Arsenal and Chelsea join the race for Jasper Cillessen According to Extra.ie Sport, Arsenal and Chelsea are looking to hijack Liverpool’s possible move for Barcelona shot-stopper, Jasper Cillessen. After Loris Karius’ disastrous Champions League final display, Liverpool are looking to sign a new number one, to replace both him and Simon Mignolet. Liverpool were targeting Alisson from Roma but with Mohamed Salah joining Liverpool for just €38m last summer, the Italian outfit are adding ‘Salah tax’ to all transfer proceedings with the Reds. However, Liverpool are not the only club with goalkeeping problems. Petr Cech’s up and down form cost the Gunners last season and as such, they too are said to be interested in Cillessen. Chelsea are also being linked with a move for the Barca number two as speculation about Thibaut Courtois’ future mounts as he’s yet to sign a new contract with the club. Cillessen is surplus to requirements at Barcelona, with Marc-Andre Ter Stegen continuing to perform well for the La Liga champions. The Dutchman has admitted that he will consider a move to a top club in order to get regular first-team action so a move to Arsenal could be on the cards.

Liverpool have stepped up their interest in Nicolo Barella after being impressed by the Italy U21 international's performances for Cagliari this season. The Reds will make a move for the 21-year-old midfielder this summer, according to La Nuova Sardegna.

Report: Liverpool Interested in Cagliari Midfielder Nicolo Barella . Created with Sketch. Liverpool target Nicolo Barella will not be allowed to leave Cagliari for less than £45m, according to reports in Italy.

Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella.

According to La Nuova Sardegna, the most reputable paper in Sardinia, the Reds are expected to make an offer for Barella at some point over the next few weeks.

Chelsea are said to also interested in the 21-year-old, so Liverpool will face some competition for his signature.

Cagliari have apparently put an asking price of €40m on the Italian U21 international, and it’s difficult to see either Chelsea or Liverpool paying such a large amount for a relatively unproven player.

Bordeaux name their asking price for Malcom

  Bordeaux name their asking price for Malcom Jurgen Klopp is reportedly a fan on Bordeaux forward Malcom and is considering making a move for him this summer. Liverpool have their eyes on another France-based star – Nabil Fekir – but they reportedly have an interest in Malcom too. According to a report from French publication, L’Equipe, Bordeaux are resigned to the fact that the forward will leave in the summer, but they are asking for a £32m transfer fee. Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have also been linked with the 21-year-old and it looks like he will be allowed to leave this summer, after failing to secure a move in January. The young Brazilian had admitted that he would like a move to the Premier League and it looks like Liverpool are one of the teams interested in him. Although he’s still very young, £32m seems lie a fair fee for the forward in the current market.

Nicolo Barella has been target of Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp as the managers look to bolster their midfield options for the next season. Euro Football Rumours understood that Chelsea and Liverpool aren’t the only ones who are reportedly interested in the 20-year-old.

Cagliari star Nicolo Barella is reportedly in favour of a move to Inter Milan despite interest from Liverpool . Roma and Juventus are also mooted to be interested but Barella 's latest revelation leaves Inter in pole position to sign the in-demand midfielder.

Barella has only broken into the Cagliari team in the last couple of years, making 35 appearances last year and 30 the year before, so whether anyone will be willing to pay such an amount remains to be seen.

Liverpool have already signed Naby Keita and Fabinho, both of whom will become Reds in 2018, but there is still room for them to bring in another player, especially a youngster, so time will tell if Barella is a man they target.

Danny Ings lined up by Crystal Palace .
Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool striker Danny Ings, according to a report in the Times. The Liverpool forward has spent the last three seasons at Anfield, following his move from Burnley back in 2015, but has endured terrible injury luck and has only made 25 appearances across the three seasons. Ings, 25, had scored 38 goals in 122 games for Burnley and since his move to the Reds he has only managed three goals, although his recent performances since coming back from injury have seen him earn a place on the bench. Palace are keen to add goals to their squad this summer after Christian Benteke’s failure to impress under Roy Hodgson last season. The report also states that Palace have been tracking him for much of the past year, and given his previous links to Selhurst Park, a deal this summer could be a possibility with the forward said to be keen on leaving Liverpool this transfer window in the search of regular first-team football.
