Having qualified for the Champions League, former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy is expecting Jurgen Klopp to strengthen the squad defensively in the upcoming season.
Murphy believes Liverpool need to invest in defenders and Dutch centre-back Virgil Van Dijk who plays for Southampton would be a brilliant signing for the club.
Van Dijk has been heavily linked to Anfield this transfer window.
Meanwhile, Murphy is also pretty excited by the arrival of Mohamad Salah from AS Roma and feels that he is a good addition to the Reds’s squad.
Liverpool have signed Salah on a five-year deal for £35 million but it looks like Klopp will now be switching his focus to buying players that can add to the squad defensively.
Manchester United may have been handed the break they’ve been looking for in their pursuit of Ivan Perisic.
According to Football Italia, Lazio’s promising winger Keita Balde has left their pre-season training camp to complete his move to Inter Milan.
The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the hottest talents in Serie A, scoring 16 goals and providing three assists in the league lasts season in 21 appearances, 10 of which were off the bench.
Keita rose to prominence in May when he scored five goals in a remarkable performance which saw Lazio beat Sampordia 7-3.
With the Senegalese player moving to the San Siro, it opens the door for Perisic to sign for United.
Jose Mourinho is known to be a fan of the Croatian and sees him as a vital signing ahead of the new season.
Perisic left Inter’s training camp on Saturday as United step up talks to sign the 28-year-old.
The Serie A outfit have demanded a fee of £48 million for the former Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg man.
Former West Ham forward Paolo Di Canio believes West Ham will be an improved side in the upcoming Premier League season.
West Ham finished 11th in the 2016-17 Premier League season, under Croatian manager Slaven Bilić.
And the former Italian international believes now that West Ham have settled in at the Olympic Stadium, they can challenge the bigger teams.
In an interview, Di Canio also said that, while Joe Hart who has been a transfer target for the club this summer, is a top goalkeeper, they need more good players in the middle of the pitch and up front.
