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 strengthen his squad ahead of the new 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 are the current top three:

1. Lucas Moura (PSG) - 3.9

After seeing his rating in the Football Whispers charts dip below 3.0 for the first time in five weeks, Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura has shot to the top of Liverpool's rumoured targets, as a possible transfer continues to be discussed.

The 23-year-old Brazilian scored an impressive 13 goals in 32 starts for PSG in all competitions last season and continues to be linked with a move to Anfield.

Several British newspapers have linked German U21 international Dahoud with a move to Anfield in the past few months, and he has been a consistent presence in the Football Whispers chart.

Dahoud is an energetic all-round midfield talent, combining tireless work rate and incisive movement with a broad range of passing and tenacious ball-winning.

But Dahoud is under contract until 2018, and Gladbach are adamant that he is going nowhere.

3. Moussa Sissoko (Newcaslte) - 2.8

The Newcastle midfielder is level with Dahoud in the rating, but will Liverpool be willing to pay the £35m price tag the Magpies have slapped on Sissoko?

The 26-year-old, who joined Newcastle from Toulouse for an undisclosed fee in January 2013, was superb for France as they reached the Euro 2016 final, where they lost to Portugal on Sunday.

Sissoko has already declared he wants to leave Tyneside, telling French website Foot Mercato in June that he wanted to join a team in the Champions League, but with Liverpool just missing out, will this affect a transfer deal?
