Liverpool continue to be linked with a host of potential new signings this summer.

Arne Slot is busy preparing the Reds squad for his first campaign as head coach. Slot is overseeing pre-season training at the AXA Training Centre and will be assessing the players at his disposal in the process.

The Reds are yet to make any new signings ever since the summer transfer window officially opened last month. Despite the lack of activity, Liverpool are still being credited as the potential destination for numerous players this summer.

Updates have emerged in the last 24 hours that have provided a hint as to what transfer business Liverpool may conduct over the next couple of months. The ECHO takes a look at the latest rumours that are doing the rounds online and across social media.

Reports from Germany have claimed that Liverpool are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund forward Karim Adeyemi. According to Sky Germany, the Reds have joined the race to sign Adeyemi this summer, who could leave the Bundesliga club.

It has been reported that Chelsa, Juventus and AC Milan are also interested in signing Adeyemi. The article also states that Dortmund may be open to selling the forward if an offer worth €30 million (£25 million) is submitted before the deadline in early September.

Elsewhere, Liverpool have been handed an update regarding the future of Juventus forward Federico Chiesa. The Reds have been heavily linked with a move for the Italy international in recent weeks, with reports emerging that the Serie A club would be open to selling the forward.

According to TEAMTalk, Chiesa's agent, Fali Ramadani has offered Premier League clubs the chance to sign the forward. It has been claimed that Ramadani will set demands for Chiesa to earn an annual salary of 8 million (£6.8 million), which works out to approximately £130,000 per week.

As well as Liverpool, Manchester United have also been credited with an interest, along with Serie A duo Roma and Napoli. Chiesa's current deal with Juventus expires next year and it's been suggested that it also remains a possibility that he remains in Turin beyond this summer.
