Liverpool will be looking to match their transfer business from the previous summer as Arne Slot prepares to put his stamp on the current side.

The Reds recruited Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch, Wataru Endo and Dominik Szoboszlai in a major change to the midfield setup and further additions are likely to be on the agenda during this transfer window.

Slot will be the judge of which players will need moving on and will likely have in mind certain individuals he is eager to bring to Anfield. Liverpool are already being linked with a whole host of names and we have rounded up some of the latest transfer rumours, below.

Chiesa claim

Previously linked with the Reds, Juventus forward Federico Chiesa is claimed to be a target once again.

The Italian ended the 2023/24 campaign with ten goals and three assists in 37 appearances, helping his employers to a top-four finish and a Coppa Italia title.

Chiesa is out of contract this time next year, though it appears a new deal in Turin is not forthcoming. A latest report by GIVEMESPORT has suggested Liverpool are "keeping an eye" on the player's contractual situation.

The report adds that the Reds have "stepped up" their interest in the 26-year-old following Slot's appointment and had scouts "in attendance" for Juventus' recent Coppa Italia triumph.

Conor Bradley contract

Conor Bradley is reportedly in line to sign a "bumper new deal" at Liverpool after his breakthrough campaign with the Reds in 2023/24.

The right-back only put pen to paper on fresh terms back in December, though he remains one of the lowest-earns at Anfield according to TEAMtalk.

Bradley is therefore due to be rewarded once again with an improved contract, with Slot making this one of his "top priorities" after taking charge of the club.
