Liverpool take on Everton next weekend.

It really is that close and the Reds are gearing up for a potential title party.

Of course, Manchester City kick off Project Restart on Wednesday, taking on Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

Should they lose that game, the Reds will only have to win against their Merseyside rivals to be crowned champions at Goodison Park.

If that scenario doesn’t come to pass, Jurgen Klopp’s men will only have to wait until the following Wednesday, when they take on Crystal Palace at Anfield.

Of course, it will be behind-closed-doors, but one has to imagine that there will still be a few socially distanced beers sunk when the title is finally won.

It will surely happen and now GIVEMESPORT has taken a look at the best headlines surrounding the Reds.

Leading Sancho chase

Liverpool could simply go from strength to strength this summer if this report from le10sport is anything to go by!

The French outlet reports that the Reds are currently leading the chase to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

He has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season and is courted by a number of clubs; Manchester United and Real Madrid are both interested in securing his signature.

Sancho is keen on a return to England, per the report, and he is viewed as a possible long-term successor to Sadio Mane, who could well leave the club.

Klopp is said to have personally identified the winger for a transfer so one has to imagine that this could develop into something of a saga.

New contract for Longstaff

Luis Longstaff has signed a new contract with the Reds, the club’s official website has announced.

The 19-year-old has committed himself to the Reds until 2022, having made his first-team breakthrough this season.

The right winger made his debut in the Carabao Cup against Aston Villa, playing as a striker, a testament to the versatility he offers.

He has scored four goals in all competitions this season, playing for the U23s, including a strike in a 3-0 thumping of Arsenal in which he also laid on an assist.

Goal reports that the Reds are interested in signing the winger from Valencia, along with Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Serie A clubs. 

The report states that two bids from England have already been tabled for the 20-year-old, though

it is not clear which clubs have made a move, or how much they have offered.

His contract holds a £90 million release clause.

Indeed, Torres has sparkled in Spain this season,scoring six goals and registering seven assists  in all competitions; including an assist in a 2-0 win over Barcelona in January.
