Wrapping up the Liverpool transfer news, rumours and gossip in the 2022 summer window.

Klopp rules out midfield addition | 'The solutions are inside the squad'

Jurgen Klopp believes the solutions to Liverpool's midfield problems lie within his squad after admitting "it doesn't look like something will happen" over a summer signing.

Thiago Alcantara has been ruled out for a number of weeks having limped off with a hamstring injury during their 2-2 draw with Fulham on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

"If there was the right player and an opportunity, we would have done it, we would do it, but I don't see it because we had a lot of conversations already and it doesn't look like something will happen," he said.

Elliott signs new Liverpool deal

Harvey Elliott has agreed a new long-term contract with Liverpool that will keep the forward at the club until the summer of 2027.

Elliott, 19, joined Liverpool from Fulham in July 2019 and only signed a new deal with the club a year ago.

However, despite suffering a serious ankle injury at Leeds United last September, Elliott regained full fitness in time to be involved in Liverpool's quest to win an historic quadruple in the second half of last season.

Klopp dismisses need for midfield reinforcements

Thiago Alcantara was forced off just six minutes into the second half of Liverpool's 2-2 draw at Fulham - but Jurgen Klopp has dismissed the need to seek midfield reinforcements.

The midfield playmaker was substituted with what appeared to be a hamstring strain as he clutched the back of his left leg.

The summer transfer window remains open, although Klopp feels Liverpool does not need a new addition in midfield.

"It's clear we said we don't need a midfielder as we have enough," he said. "Now we have been punished for something which is not our responsibility.

"There's nothing we could do about this. Naby [Keita] is ill and maybe he'll be back next week. With Thiago, it's not good but we will see. A transfer must make sense, now and in the long-term.

"We still have eight midfielders, just some of them are injured at the moment. It's not a good decision at all, but we won't panic."

Jota signs long-term Liverpool contract extension

Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has committed his future to the club by signing a long-term contract extension.

The new deal for the 25-year-old, who has scored 34 goals in 85 appearances since joining Liverpool from Wolves in the summer of 2020, is understood to run until 2027.

Jota joins fellow Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah in signing a new deal with the club this summer, following the departure of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled out making any more signings this summer unless they suffer injuries or sell any of their existing players

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled out further new faces arriving at Anfield this summer.

The German is content with the squad he has shaped this summer, with Nunez arriving for £85m from Benfica - a club-record fee - adding to further recruits in Calvin Ramsay for £6.5m from Aberdeen and Fabio Carvalho from Fulham for an undisclosed fee.

Klopp told Sky Sports: "Unless we have injuries or player sales no, we have our squad. Hopefully, there won't be any so Liverpool supporters can focus on other things."

When pressed on potential outgoings, Klopp added: "I don't talk about these things you know that. Look at the results, not the process - don't forget!"

Rangers sign Davies from Liverpool for £4m

Rangers have completed the £4m signing of Ben Davies from Liverpool on a four-year contract.

Last season he was on loan at Sheffield United in the English Championship, playing 23 times for the promotion-chasing Blades.

Davies was signed for £500k during an injury crisis in January 2021. Liverpool made that £500k back last season in a loan fee from Sheffield United.

Forest sign Williams

Nottingham Forest have completed the £16m signing of Liverpool right-back Neco Williams on a four-year contract.

Williams, 21, spent the second half of last season out on loan with Championship winners Fulham, where he made 14 league appearances, scoring twice and assisting two goals for the west London team.

Gomez agrees new long-term contract

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has signed a new long-term contract with the club, which is understood to be a five-year deal that runs until the summer of 2027.

The England international, 25, has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the club that runs until the summer of 2027.

Gomez, who was reportedly interesting Aston Villa this summer, joined from Charlton Athletic in June 2015 and has since won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup with Liverpool.

Salah signs three-year Liverpool deal

Mohamed Salah has ended speculation about his Liverpool future by signing a new three-year contract.

The Egypt forward contract was due to expire in the summer of 2023, but his fresh terms in excess of £350,000 a week, makes him the highest-paid player in the club's history.

The three-year deal still fits into the club's sustainable wage structure and is incentivised with scoring bonuses.

Julian Ward jetted out to meet Salah, who is on holiday, to finalise the paperwork and FSG president Mike Gordon was instructive in negotiations with the forward's Ramy Abbas Issa.

Monaco complete £15.5m Minamino signing

Monaco have completed the signing of Japan forward Takumi Minamino from Liverpool in a deal worth £15.5m (€18m).

The fee is an initial £12.9m (€15m) plus a further £2.6m (€3m) in add-ons.

Minamino, 27, signed from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020 and played 55 times for Liverpool, scoring 14 times.

Chelsea to approach ex-Liverpool sporting director

Chelsea are expected to engage Michael Edwards over their sporting director vacancy with owner Todd Boehly previously referencing Liverpool as a "great model" for success.

The man who helped reshape the recruitment of the Merseysiders and constructed Jurgen Klopp's world-class squad with smart, analytical-powered transfers, departed Anfield this summer after 11 years.

A source close to Edwards has told Sky Sports News that since the 42-year-old's decision to leave was made public last November, he has been approached by Europe's powerhouse teams - Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain specifically - as well as hedge funds and billionaires wanting to buy clubs and have him run them.
