Liverpool fans, good morning.
Christmas fast approaches and beyond that the January transfer window. It’s safe to say we’ve got no shortage of breaking news and rumours.
With that in mind, prepare to enjoy the very best the mainstream media have produced today. We’ve done our best to keep it credible. Read on for more.
Grujic deal close
By all accounts, Liverpool are moving towards the capture of Marko Grujic, but they haven’t managed to seal the deal yet.
The latest reports suggest that the Reds have outlined a proposal of £4.3m plus the offer of the player staying with Red Star Belgrade until the end of the season.
However, they’re no longer alone, with German club Stuttgart having put forward a £5m package of their own.
The 19-year-old is believed to be keen on Anfield, but as of yet - despite what reports in Serbia are saying - it’s no dice.
Here's a little snippet of what he can do:

Sakho the Scouser
Meanwhile, Mamadou Sakho has further warmed himself to fans by declaring himself a Scouser.
The hulking centre-half said he would give everything for Scouse nation moving forward, having settled in well at Anfield following a relatively uncertain start at the club.
Lastly, former Reds star Xabi Alonso produced what will surely be considered one of the goals of the season last night, hammering home a half-volley for Bayern Munich to leave fans with tingles down their spines.
'Not Liverpool news,' you say? 'Fair enough', we respond. All the same, there are few football fans out there who won’t want to see this strike a few times.
