Just a few days remain till Liverpool’s new Premier League season begins.
The Reds have already won their first piece of silverware and will be attempting to win the Premier League once more this season.
Although, of course, the title is by no means a significant one, Liverpool defeated Manchester City in the Community Shield over the weekend to get off to a winning start.
After narrowly missing out on the Premier League title last season, Jurgen Klopp’s men will hope to win it this time around.
We’ve compiled all the most recent Anfield-related news and transfer reports as the new season draws closer.
Nat Phillips asking price dropped
According to reports, Liverpool has lowered the asking price for Reds defender Nat Phillips.
Last season, Phillips spent time on loan at Bournemouth, helping the Cherries in their return to the Premier League.
The Express reports that Liverpool wants £10 million for Phillips’ signing which is £5 million less than what they had initially demanded, and the Cherries reportedly want him permanently.
At Anfield, Phillips is not likely to see regular football, and it appears that he will be allowed to look for it elsewhere.
One of Liverpool’s top forwards have been tied down to a new contract at the club.
Diogo Jota, who joined only two years ago in a £41 million transfer from Wolves, has signed terms that will keep him with the club until 2027.
The Portuguese international has since become a phenomenon at Anfield, considerably surpassing expectations and contributing significantly to Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Liverpool are getting ahead of things with Jota having lost Sadio Mane to an expiring contract, with Roberto Firmino also being in a vulnerable position.
And for his 34 goals in 85 games to far, they have rewarded him with a lucrative new, long-term contract to secure his future with Liverpool.
