LFC Transfer news: Latest targets – Shaqiri, Bertrand, Lovren and Moreno

As reported earlier this week by The Kop End, Brendan Rodgers intends to sign quality not quantity this summer and this is evident in the news coming from the Liverpool camp today.

It appears that Rodgers has his eye on Xherdan Shaqiri currently at Bayern Munich and Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand as well as Southampton defender Dejan Lovren.

Liverpool officials are said to have approached Bayern to discuss the possibility of a move for 22 year old Xherdan Shaqiri who started his career at Basel. A move to Bayern in 2012 for a fee of €11.6m saw Shaquiri spending less time on the pitch despite his prominence in Switzerland’s World Cup line up that same year. The winger is said to be keen on a move to Liverpool as regular Premier League football would certainly boost his career.

As has already been mentioned, Liverpool have made a play worth £20m for Southampton Captain, Adam Lallana and it seems they are planning a further deal by making an offer for central defender Dejan Lovren. The 24 year old Croatian was secured from Lyon last summer for a fee of £8.5m and has made an impression on several English football clubs after an impressive debut this season.

Rodgers is committed to strengthening his back line in preparation for next season in order to tackle the issues which he feels lead to LFC’s eventual defeat in the Premier League title. In order to do this, Chelsea player Ryan Bertrand seems to have made it on to Rodgers wish-list. However, if Chelsea is unwilling to sell the 24 year old central defender, Rodgers may instead consider making a play for Alberto Moreno, Sevilla’s highly rated full-back.

Whatever the outcome, it does appear that some serious thought is being given to a number of fantastic players, keep reading The Kop End for daily updates as they happen.
