Here are three players linked with Liverpool who could still move to other Premier League clubs this month. The Reds have a lot of links.
We’ve crunched the numbers and Liverpool are linked with roughly 3,000 players per summer these days. It means, of course, that not all of them end up at Anfield. Sometimes, none of them do and even rarer than that, a player never actually linked with the Reds is suddenly completing a transfer.
It also means that a lot of these players end up at other Premier League clubs, offering a look at what could have been. Several such players have made the move this summer – Fabio Vieira at Arsenal, Kalidou Koulibaly at Chelsea and Diego Carlos at Aston Villa are three such players.
But we’re not done yet. There are even more Liverpool-linked players potentially on their way to the Premier League. Here are three of them.
Players linked with Liverpool head to the Premier League
L’Équipe claim that Nottingham Forest want Houssem Aouar and have made their opening bid. Aouar is a player Liverpool fans heard a lot of in 2020 and to a lesser extent in 2021.
The French playmaker was, per the Mirror, once a priority target but Liverpool never found a deal. His stock has plummeted since and now the Lyon star could be off to a newly-promoted side.
The Telegraph, among others, claims that Manchester United want Cody Gakpo – the reigning Eredivisie Footballer of the Year. That’s not particularly a surprise as Gakpo is one of the most interesting wingers in Europe right now.
Now the Reds’ fiercest rivals could strike a deal to take him to the Premier League. If they can convince him they’re worth a shot, of course.
Now, it does appear that this one might be off but Corriere Dello Sport claim Tottenham Hotspur want Nicolo Zaniolo. In fact, they supposedly struck a deal only for that villainous José Mourinho to ruin things.
He’s convinced the Italian playmaker to give AS Roma another year, potentially leaving for more money in 2023. Maybe Liverpool could even get involved – Gazzetta Dello Sport claimed in May that they’ve been monitoring Zaniolo.
We’ve been fans for a long time, ever since there was plenty of links back in 2020. This one maybe shouldn’t be written off just yet, though.
