Liverpool meet with Xherdan Shaqiri representatives over possible transfer

Chelsea v Crystal Palace- Premier League

Liverpool reportedly has revived their interest in the old target Gelson Martins who could be available for free transfer following a long series of events at his Portuguese club.

According to David Maddock of the Daily Mirror, the Reds are not prepared to part with the asking price Roma are demanding for the Brazil global, which is said to be around the £70 million mark.

Liverpool have conceded defeat in their transfer pursuits of Jan Oblak and Alisson, reports say.

Major upgrades were expected to the Liverpool team this summer despite Jurgen Klopp leading the Reds to the Champions League final.

"Burnley's World Cup bound Nick Pope has been linked, and the Lancashire club's other 'keeper Tom Heaton has been on the radar in the past", added Maddock.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman also issued a directive last Tuesday to extend this year's Eid Al Fitr holiday . The holy month of Ramadan or Ramzan, observed by the Muslims across the world, is coming to an end.

Signing for £37 million and then going on to break the record for most goals scored in a 20-club Premier League season must surely classify him as one of the best deals in English football. Roma may not have been the most defensively sound side in Serie A last season, but so often he was on hand to get them out of trouble with some inspired goalkeeping.

That last piece of the club's new midfield still needs filling though, and with news of a move for West Ham's Manuel Lanzini having been scuppered by an injury sustained on worldwide duty, the shortlist narrows by the day.

Fabinho is already in and Naby Keita's deal was pre-arranged for this summer, while Fekir looked as though he might be a third addition.

The Italian giants, who signed Justin Kluivert yesterday for £17m, are wary of underselling the Brazil goalkeeper after parting with Mohamed Salah for a bargain £36m last summer.
