Liverpool continue to be linked with a host of players, as Jurgen Klopp mulls over whether to strengthen his squad when the transfer window opens.

As fresh rumours about the potential new arrivals on Merseyside continue to surface, we have taken a look at the latest pieces of gossip to see what they could mean for the Reds.

Timo Werner, yes it’s him again.

Where?

According to 90min, Liverpool are considering to look at other attacking options, if Red Bull Leipzig do not lower their asking price for the striker.

It is believed that 24-year-old has a £52m release clause in his contract, but the report adds that is not a fee the Reds are prepared to pay.

It has also been claimed that Liverpool don't want to pay £50m for the striker but rather than the deal being dead, Anfield chiefs "have simply fired Leipzig a warning that they will not be pressured into triggering his release clause."

Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele is named as a potential alternative should a deal for Werner not go through.

What?

Despite reports in midweek claiming the Reds had held talks with Leipzig over a transfer for Werner, the ECHO understands this is not the case.

It had been suggested that Liverpool had withdrawn from talks to sign Werner, refusing point blank to part with such a fee for his services amid the current financial uncertainty following the coronavirus pandemic.

But the Echo understands the Reds have not held talks with the Bundesliga club, and it remains to be seen where the 30-goal striker will end up when the transfer window opens

Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have all been credited win an interest in the past for the German international.

Who?

Adam Lallana of Liverpool

Adam Lallana, Liverpool midfielder who is out of contract this summer.

Where?

According to Football Insider, Premier League rivals Leicester City have made an offer to the Reds player to bring him to the King Power Stadium for next season.

The report states that a recruitment source has told them that the Foxes head the queue of clubs trying to sign Lallana when the next transfer window opens and they have offered him a lucrative long-term deal.

This would see Lallana reunited with former boss Brendan Rodgers, who brought the midfielder to Anfield from Southampton in 2014.

What?

Lallana’s game time has gradually decreased in recent seasons, with injury and squad competition the main reasons.

The 31-year-old has been a loyal servant to the Reds in his six years on Merseyside, but the experienced midfielder could leave the club in search if regular game time.

Klopp is a big fan of Lallana, and surely would not turn down the chance of keeping the player at Anfield should he wish to stay.

Who?

The Trabzonspor goalkeeper has addressed speculation linking him with the likes of Liverpool, as well as Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle and Sheffield United.

It had been claimed that the Reds were said to be preparing to make an offer worth £22m to sign the stopper when the transfer window reopens.

Cakit has acknowledged the speculation, but will not be drawn on it at this stage.

“It is nice to be noticed and followed by great teams,” Cakir told Haber, quoted by The Express.

“But I have goals in Trabzonspor and I want to achieve these goals.

"My transfer will be spoken about when it comes."

What?

If you were to ask the majority of people where, if anywhere, Liverpool need to strengthen, the goalkeeping department would not be mentioned.

The Reds currently have a world class stopper in the form of Alisson Becker, while Adrian has performed admirably when called upon this term.

Given the current financial uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic, as well as Liverpool’s existing quality between the sticks, an offer in excess of £20m looks unlikely to happen.
