Liverpool on five-player spending spree

Published Add your comment

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has wasted no time getting stuck into the transfer market this summer, submitting five bids worth £77m for five new players already.

According to the Daily Star, the five players Liverpool have moved for are Southampton duo Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren, Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno, Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri and Bayer Leverkusen's Emre Can.

The Anfield club have reportedly made separate offers for Lallana, valued at around £20m, and Croatian international Lovren. The bid for the defender is thought to be closer to the £15m mark. Southampton paid £8m to Lyon for him last summer.

21-year-old left Moreno has been linked with a number of top European clubs, and the report claims Liverpool have offered Sevilla £16m for his services.

To sweeten the deal Rodgers is ready to send Suso on loan to Sevilla - the Liverpool youngster impressed during his temporary switch to Almeria last term.

It has been reported that Shaqiri will cost another £16m to prise him away from Bayern Munich, even though the Switzerland international has played a bit-part role under Pep Guardiola.

The final piece of the puzzle is Leverkusen's Germany under-21 international Can. The 20-year-old midfielder is thought to be the subject of a £10m bid from Liverpool.

The Daily Star reports that Liverpool are awaiting to hear back before deciding on their next move, but Rodgers is clearly keen to get his transfer business sorted early as Liverpool prepare for a Champions League campaign next season.
