Liverpool to face competition for Kondogbia

  Liverpool to face competition for Kondogbia Liverpool are reportedly facing competition for their transfer target from Inter Milan, Geoffrey Kondogbia, according to talkSPORT. Kondogbia is on loan at Valencia from Inter for the season, but his impressive performances in Spain have earned him interest from some European giants. The Reds are said to be looking at him as a potential summer buy, but Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur are also keen on the defensive midfielder. However, when his loan at Valencia is finished and he travels back to Milan, it is believed that he may be staying in Italy as AS Roma have shown interest in keeping him in Serie A. There are also rumours that he may go to his native France, as giants Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly keen on signing him, but he is not seen as much as a priority as he is to the aforementioned clubs. Valencia do have an option to sign the player who has scored four goals for them already this season, in a deal worth about £20m, but the interest from elsewhere across Europe may halt that. It is believed that Liverpool may try and sign him in the summer as a replacement for German midfielder Emre Can, who looks to be leaving Anfield this summer on a free transfer.

The Spanish club have the option to sign the player at the end of the loan deal for a fee of €25m. It was originally reported that they didn’t have the funds to complete a deal but that no longer needs to be the case and as such, they now look certain to take up the option.

Real Madrid stepping up pursuit of Emre Can

  Real Madrid stepping up pursuit of Emre Can With a decision on his next steps unlikely to be announced before the end of the season, Emre Can continues to be linked with summer moves to some of Europe’s top clubs. While interest from Juventus is well documented, Real Madrid are also now in the running for the Germany international as they look to bolster their midfield options. Madrid have been watching Can in recent weeks and have come away impressed with his performances as they prepare to step up their interest in the combative midfielder. Can’s Liverpool contract expires in June and it’s believed that Juventus have a long-term contract offer on the table worth £4.5m-a-year, approximately £85,000-a-week plus bonuses, an offer that Can is holding off agreeing to for the time being. Aware that other clubs are chasing his signature, the 24-year-old is putting off finalising his next move until the current season is over so he can focus on the challenges Liverpool face over the coming months. Real Madrid hope to take advantage of the delay by entering the race to sign Can, but a formal contract offer has yet to be put forward. Premier League rivals Manchester United and Manchester City are also interested in signing Can on a free transfer, as are former club Bayern Munich.

Roma agree deal for replacement for Reds' target Alisson .
Roma have reportedly agreed a deal for Malmo goalkeeper Marko Johansson, who could replace Liverpool target Alisson as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper next season. Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Giallorossi have agreed a deal but the young goalkeeper wants assurances of playing time in Rome. RB Leipzig are also interested in the goalkeeper, so it appears that Roma need to make a decision on Alison’s future in order to secure the deal. Alisson has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool this summer after impressing in Serie A this season. Roma have been linked with several potential replacements, including Bernd Leno, who himself has been touted as a possible Liverpool target. Jurgen Klopp is in the market for a goalkeeper this summer with the German undecided on either Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet. Alisson’s form this season have prompted Real Madrid to keep tabs on the Brazilian as well as Liverpool. Manchester United and Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in the goalkeeper.
