Liverpool reportedly target a new playmaker as we round up the latest rumours on Tuesday, June 12.
Liverpool will step up their efforts to land unsettled Stoke City forward Xherdan Shaqiri when he returns from the World Cup after receiving initial encouragement, according to reports in the Mirror.
The Switzerland international has already stated that he wants to leave the bet365 Stadium this summer after the Potters' relegation from the Premier League last season.
Meanwhile, Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins is one of a number of players to have cancelled their contracts with the Portuguese club.
The Reds were heavily linked with Martins last summer, only to decide not to follow up their interest in the player.
Elsewhere, out-of-favour midfielder Marko Grujic is wanted by Lazio next season, say reports in the British press. The Serbia international spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff City.
And finally, Liverpool have offered Roma £57m for goalkeeper Alisson, says Terra in Brazil.
According to Sky Sports News, though, Liverpool are unlikely to make an approach to sign the shot-stopper this summer.
