Liverpool transfer round-up as price set for Vlahovic amid Konate complications

Liverpool have had their problems this season and Jurgen Klopp is looking at the transfer window as a potential solution.

The Reds are toiling to finish in the top four – not what they had envisaged after winning the Premier League with such ease last year.

The Anfield outfit have a number of transfer concerns going into the summer window with Mohamed Salah and Ibrahima Konate under the microscope.

However, they have been given the green light to pursue Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic, though many teams are chasing the forward.

Here are the latest Liverpool transfer rumours and gossip.

Mohamed Salah worries

The Liverpool attacker has confessed that there has been no movement on a new contract at Anfield.

It comes as speculation surrounding the Egypt international continues to swirl.

“No one is talking to me about anything, so I can’t say much about that,” he said, when asked about his future.

“No one in the club is talking to me about anything so I do not know.”

Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in the forward and Salah has admitted he is open to move to Spain in the past.

Vlahovic price set

Fiorentina star Vlahovic has been priced at £52m as the race for his signature hots up ahead of the transfer window, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

Liverpool are one of several sides interested in the 21-year-old – who has had a brilliant campaign in Serie A.

In 32 league appearances, the youngster has scored 17 times and a move away has been tipped.

As well as the Reds, Vlahovic has attracted the attention of Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

Konate 'complications'

Liverpool have ran into problems with Ibrahima Konate as they look to sign the RB Leipzig defender.

The Frenchman has been made a top target going into the summer transfer window.

And Konate is keen on a move, but that might not be enough for a transfer to go ahead.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds are struggling to find the funds to trigger the 21-year-old's €40m release clause.

The fact that it would need to be paid in full has caused problems for Anfield chiefs, who would prefer it be made in instalments.
