Liverpool still the front-runners to sign Fulham midfielder João Palhinha

As per journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Liverpool are still the club that are “most keen” on signing João Palhinha this summer although Fulham are looking at a potential fee of around £60m. The Reds have been looking to improve their midfield this summer, having already signed Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, and Tavolieri has stated that Palhinha could be the next to follow.

The reporter has indicated that “movements and developments” are expected over the course of the next few weeks as Fulham and Liverpool hash out a deal. The Cottagers have already rejected several bids for Palhinha this summer, including one worth around £45m from West Ham United

Liverpool and Al Ettifaq have reached an agreement in principle over an initial £12m fee for the transfer of Jordan Henderson, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The 33-year-old Henderson has already agreed to a three-year deal with Saudi Arabian side, with the necessary paperwork about to be finalised.

The Liverpool captain was left out of the squad for the Karlsruher friendly and will travel to Saudi Arabia soon to undergo a medical and complete the deal.

Al Hilal are preparing to make a €50m(£43m) offer to sign Liverpool winger Luis Diaz, according to a report from Record.

Manager Jorge Jesus is said to be a big admirer of the 26-year-old Colombia international, but as one of Jurgen Klopp’s key players, it is considered “very unlikely” that the Reds would be willing to part company with him, especially with Jordan Henderson and Fabinho already closing in on their respective Saudi Pro League moves.Liverpool will target Southampton’s Romeo Lavia regardless of the departures, as per Fabrizio Romano. Both Jordan Henderson and Fabinho could be on their way out to Saudi clubs this season.
