Liverpool receive bids for three players ahead of transfer deadline

Liverpool have received bids for three players – Rhian Brewster, Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic – and are ready to sanction their departures ahead of transfer deadline day.

The Reds have already offloaded the likes of Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana this summer, while bringing Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas to Anfield.

While Liverpool are not expected to sign anyone else before the window closes on October 5, they are keen to trim Jurgen Klopp’s squad by offloading a number of fringe players.

According to Goal, striker Brewster, winger Wilson and midfielder Grujic are all in line for moves away from Liverpool this week.

Brewster has long been tipped as a future first-team regular at Anfield but he spent the majority of last season on loan at Championship club Swansea City and could now join Sheffield United.

The Blades are hoping to secure his signature in a £20m deal, with Brewster open to the move given his lack of opportunities at Liverpool.

The Premier League champions will reportedly insist on a buy-back clause for the 20-year-old, while London rivals Crystal Palace and Fulham are also interested in a permanent deal.

Wales winger Wilson, meanwhile, could be joining another Premier League club, with Burnley making a £12m offer ahead of the transfer deadline.

It is claimed Liverpool are set to reject that offer but Burnley are expected to return with an improved bid as Sean Dyche looks to strengthen his midfield options.

Grujic, who has made eight appearances for Serbia, has attracted interest from Borussia Moenchengladbach, having impressed in the Bundesliga for Hertha Berlin over the past two seasons.

Liverpool hope to raise around £50m from Brewster, Wilson and Grujic.

Klopp’s side beat Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League on Monday and face the Gunners again in the Carabao Cup on Thursday night,

Ahead of the cup clash, Klopp said: ‘Our supporters expect and deserve each Liverpool team that is selected to represent them in a way that makes them proud.

‘That’s our task tonight. We do not have fans with us at Anfield in person but they are with us still from a distance.

‘We know they show the same commitment while watching whichever competition we play in and we will match that with our approach.

‘Again, we can’t promise a result but we can do our best and give all we have.’
