Liverpool stepped up their pre-season preparations on Sunday afternoon - but Arne Slot was the only new face on the training pitches at the club's training centre in Kirkby.

The Reds remain one of only four Premier League clubs yet to make a signing this summer. Fulham, Manchester City and Manchester United are the other teams yet to announce any incoming moves as July enters its second week.

That list will likely shrink to three before long, as United are reportedly finalising the signing of Joshua Zirkzee. Nothing imminent is known to be in the works for Liverpool, but rumours abound.

Triple transfer boost

While there are no signs of any incomings at this stage, the club is reportedly not countenancing cashing in on three key players. The Mirror reports that Liverpool will not sell any of Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk or Trent Alexander-Arnold anytime soon despite the trio recently entering the final 12 months of their contracts.

These claims come after the club's new sporting director, Richard Hughes, shared how convinced he and are that the players will remain committed next season. But neither shared any updates on the individual contract situations because they are deemed private discussions.

Teun Koopmeiners talks

Juventus are reportedly the only club in negotiations over signing Teun Koopmeiners this summer. The Daily Briefing reported that update in response to rumours about Liverpool entering the race to sign the Netherlands international.

The Reds have been repeatedly linked with the Atalanta midfielder this year, with Slot's arrival as the club's new head coach only fuelling those rumours. Koopmeiners had his best two goalscoring seasons under the Dutch coach at AZ Alkmaar between 2019 and 2021. The midfielder scored 21 goals and assisted another seven across the two campaigns before moving to Italy three years ago.
