Liverpool transfer news LIVE: Georginio Wijnaldum, Rhian Brewster, Harry Wilson, more – Premier League latest

BLADES RUNNING OUT OF TIME FOR BREWSTER MOVE

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder says the club are running out of time to sign Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster.

Brewster has been linked with a move to The Blades for a number of weeks, but talks have stalled.

Liverpool would like a permanent deal, whereas the Yorkshire side only want to take Brewster on loan for the season.

Speaking in the aftermath of his side’s 1-0 defeat to Leeds yesterday, Wilder said:

“I have been focusing on the team but time is running out and we all understand that.”

SOUNESS QUESTIONS LIVERPOOL SIGNING

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has questioned the club’s signing of Diogo Jota from Wolves.

Jota was signed for £45m last week, and Souness wonders about his mentality.

Souness, writing in his column in The Times, said:


Thiago [Alcantara] will understand that you’re playing in cup finals every week because the opposition badly wants to beat you. He can deal with all that.

That would be my only question mark against Diogo Jota, Liverpool’s other new signing.  

At Wolves, it wasn’t a cup final every week but it will be at Liverpool, so he has to show that he’s ready for that. 

Otherwise, he fits the bill to deputise anywhere in that front three. He’s got great technique and understanding of the game.

WINDOW SHUT FOR FURTHER SIGNINGS

Liverpool won’t make any further signings during the remainder of the transfer window, states the Liverpool Echo.

The Premier League champions have added Thiago Alcantara, Konstantinos Tsimikas and Diogo Jota to their squad during the window.

However the Liverpool Echo believes that boss Jurgen Klopp is happy with his squad, and will only sign further players due to one of his players sustaining a serious injury.

The Reds will reportedly work on moving players on in the final week of the window.

KLOPP ON DEFENSIVE REINFORCEMENTS

Jurgen Klopp has had his say on whether or not Liverpool will look to take the pressure off of his defence, with a lack of depth at centre-back a potential issue as the season progresses.
