Transfer gossip: Liverpool get Bruno boost while targeting new goalkeeper

Newcastle are having a rough time. They languish in 10th place in the Premier League after losing six of their last seven games; they are out of Europe, and they are struggling to make the necessary improvements to their squad this month due to FFP restrictions.

The need to balance their books means the Magpies may even have to sell some of their assets, of which Bruno Guimaraes is arguably the biggest. And Liverpool are lurking…

The Mirror says the Reds are considering a summer move for the Brazil midfielder, a year after they made initial contact with Newcastle over a possible deal. Then, there was no possibility of the Toon taking an offer for Guimaraes ahead of their Champions League campaign, but it could be a different scenario at the end of the season.

Liverpool is aware of the buy-out clause in Guimaraes’ contract, which makes him available for £ 98 million. AS says that can be paid in three installments of around £32million. PSG, Barcelona, and Chelsea are also reported to be tracking the 26-year-old.

Reds To Move For Sunderland Stopper

Liverpool is also looking to the northeast while making plans to strengthen its goalkeeping ranks this summer.

The Mirror claims the Reds are willing to sell Caoimhin Kelleher for £ 20 million to allow the Republic of Ireland international to seek a first-team spot. Celtic are interested, while Brentford were linked before the start of the season.

To replace Kelleher, Liverpool could raid Sunderland for ex-England Under-21 keeper Anthony Patterson. The 23-year-old has played 105 senior games for the Black Cats and is under contract for two and a half more years.

Henderson In ‘Serious Talks’ Despite Saudi Stance

There are conflicting reports this morning about Jordan Henderson’s immediate future…

The ex-Liverpool captain wants to leave Al-Ettifaq and return to Europe as soon as possible, and there are big clubs willing to rescue him from the Saudi Pro League.

Juventus is said to be keen, while ESPN carries quotes from Ajax coach John van Schip confirming his club’s interest: “There is serious talk going on with Henderson. He still has some things to arrange in Saudi Arabia.”

Indeed, he does. The Daily Mail reckons Henderson still needs to convince Al-Ettifaq to let him go. Apparently, the club is insisting on ignoring any offers this month for the 33-year-old.
