Fekir was so confident of Liverpool transfer he’d already chosen shirt number

Sadio Mane was linked with a move to Real Madrid a few weeks ago but the 26-year-old has told Salzburger Nachrichten that he he has no intentions to leave the club as he wants to honour his contract, which expires in 2021.

Liverpool have conceded defeat in their transfer pursuits of Jan Oblak and Alisson, reports say.

Alisson was already in the club's plans before Loris Karius' dropped a clanger in the Champions League final - which only amplified the necessity. But with the World Cup coming up and Shaqiri hoping to lead Switzerland deep into the tournament this year, nothing may get sorted until the Swiss are knocked out of the tournament. There is the World Cup to come, Liverpool can look at it, see how it goes at the World Cup and then re-visit it. "But [Jurgen] Klopp will refuse to panic and may consider giving his current third-choice keeper Danny Ward a chance to compete with [Loris] Karius".

Since being given the starting berth at the Stadio Olimpico on a regular basis he's blossomed.


Alisson has carried on that form after the campaign during global duty with Brazil.

Liverpool have managed to complete a deal for Fabinho from AS Monaco with Naby Keita also due to join from RB Leipzig on July 1.

The Italian giants, who signed Justin Kluivert yesterday for £17m, are wary of underselling the Brazil goalkeeper after parting with Mohamed Salah for a bargain £36m last summer. After all, Alisson is only 25, proven at the highest level and is the type of goalkeeper-especially given his excellent distribution-who would fit into a Klopp side well at Anfield.
