Liverpool leading Raphinha chase, decision made on Grujic, clause for Pellegrini

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be eyeing a boost this summer in the form of incoming transfers having waved goodbye to Georginio Wijnaldum and welcomed Ibrahima Konate.

The Reds have today been linked to two exciting young players, with another nearing the exit door following a series of loans away from Anfield in recent seasons.

Klopp and his side are looking to bounce back from an injury-hit campaign in which they failed to win a trophy, which came after their Champions League and Premier League winning outings.

Daily Star Sport have rounded up three updates over transfer plans on Merseyside, with supporters looking to see financial backing from under pressure owners this summer.

Raphinha chase

According to Gianluigi Longari, Liverpool remain in the race for Leeds forward Raphinha, who impressed on his Premier League debut with six goals and nine assists.

He adds that Manchester United and Manchester City are also following the winger, but it won't be a simple deal for any one with Leeds keen to keep him.

Marcelo Bielsa said of his forward back in February: “I sincerely think that I can add very little to his game. The best thing you can do with players who are so spontaneous is to let them be themselves.”

Grujic decision

According to Berliner Kurier, Liverpool are ready to see Marko Grujic leave the club on a permanent deal this summer following four loans away from the club.

The 25-year-old has been praised for his attitude by Klopp in the past, but hasn't been too happy with his treatment in recent seasons with spells with Hertha and Porto most recently.

Hertha are said to be nearing a permanent deal, with the Serbia international ready to commit.

Pellegrini clause

Liverpool are said to be one of many clubs to have made an offer for Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport report that the youngster is currently preparing for the European Championships, with his future under Jose Mourinho uncertain.

The 24-year-old is said to have a contract with a £25.8million exit clause, which could lead to a summer move to the Premier League and Anfield.
