Which are the most credible Liverpool transfer rumours right now?

Sky Sports has teamed up with Football Whispers to bring you the latest transfer talk as Jurgen Klopp looks to improve his squad ahead of the Premier League season.

Football Whispers have developed a unique algorithm to take all of the transfer rumours from across the globe and calculate the likelihood of them happening.

They track transfer stories and give them a score out of 5.0, with the hottest Whispers closest to 5.0.

Here's the current top three:

Ben Chilwell (Leicester) - 4.5

England Under-21 international Chilwell has reportedly caught the eye of several Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, with some reports suggesting the Reds will need to improve their offer if they wish to secure his services.

Talk of Lucas Moura joining Liverpool has kept him high up in the Football Whispers charts for several months now and his rating has not dipped below 3.0 in June and is currently up 1.3 on that.

The 23-year-old Brazil international winger scored 13 goals for PSG in all competitions last year, despite starting just 32 times. 

Football Whispers believe this Liverpool transfer story will be one of the most likely to go through.

Sadio Mane (Southampton) - 4.3

The Southampton winger is being heavily linked with a move to Anfield, with reports suggesting Klopp has identified the Senegal international as a major target.

Mane has scored 25 goals in 75 appearances for the Saints in just two seasons, and famously scored the quickest hat-trick in Premier League history in May 2015.

Four Southampton players in the last two years have swapped Southampton for Liverpool, could Mane be the next in line?
