Salah makes Real Madrid decision
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has no interest in joining Real Madrid this summer, reports in Spain claim.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are chasing the 25-year-old, who won the Premier League Golden Boot this season.
However, according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, Salah will not join Real this summer.
They reckon the Egypt star has no intention of heading to the Bernabeu.
Diario Gol add that Salah does not forgive Real captain Sergio Ramos for injuring him in the Champions League final last month – and the winger wants revenge.
Roma up Alisson asking price
Italian football pundit Gabriele Marcotti reckons Mohamed Salah’s stunning first season at Liverpool could affect a move for Roma goalkeeper Alisson.
He thinks Liverpool’s bargain £36.7m Salah deal stung the Rome club, who have now upped their asking price for their Brazilian shot-stopper.
“I think there is contract negotiation going on,” Marcotti told ESPN FC. “From what I’ve been told, this is unlikely to get done before the World Cup, if at all.
“There’s still a lot of distance obviously between the two sides.
“Obviously the relationship between the two ownership groups, Roma and Liverpool, are very, very close, both Boston-based.
“But that said, you could argue they already helped them out last year with Mohamed Salah.
“They don’t want to let another world-beater get away this soon.
“I think from Roma’s perspective it makes sense to see what happens after the World Cup and what kind of tournament Alisson has.”
Fekir deal back on?
Liverpool’s deal for Nabil Fekir could still be resurrected – but it would take a huge U-turn from Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.
The transfer collapsed last weekend as Fekir looked set to become Liverpool’s next summer signing.
Fekir had gone as far as to choose his shirt number and had been interviewed for the club website.
However the Daily Mirror claim there is a way the move could still happen, but it would take the Lyon president to make a dramatic move.
It is claimed the ball is now in his and Lyon’s court in regards to the transfer, and they would have to come up with an agreement on the restructured fee due to concerns over Fekir’s previous knee injury.
Liverpool want to sign Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa.
That is according to the Guardian, who claim the attacker could cost as much as £62m this summer.
Liverpool appear to have missed out on Thomas Lemar, who is due to join Atletico Madrid, while a deal for Nabil Fekir has stalled.
Grujic to Serie A
Lazio are ready to bid £5m for Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic.
Grujic is out of favour at Liverpool after struggling to break into the team and injury.
Last season, Grujic was sent on loan to Cardiff City and played a part in their promotion to the Premier League.
Grujic could be a replacement for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who is likely to leave Lazio this summer.
Liverpool have made a £57m bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson.
Brazilian outlet Terra claim the Champions League finalists have made their move for the 25-year-old.
Liverpool are desperate to sign a goalkeeper after Loris Karius’ blunders in the Champions League final.
But Roma wants around £80m for Alisson.
