Jurgen Klopp's focus may now be on outgoings during the remainder of the summer transfer window, and one big name could still be on the way out in the coming weeks.
Reds willing to sell Salah for £60m?
Liverpool elected to sell Sadio Mane for a cut-price fee this summer rather than lose him on a free in 2023, and the Reds could now be forced to follow a similar path with Mohamed Salah.
The 30-year-old will soon enter the final 12 months of his contract at Anfield, and Liverpool surely cannot fathom the PFA Player of the Year walking out of the door for nothing at the end of next season.
With contract talks still failing to bear fruit, The Sun claims that Liverpool may reluctantly be willing to part ways with Salah should an interested party stump up £60m.
The report adds that Real Madrid are still keeping a close eye on the situation, and the Reds are so far refusing to bow to the attacker's £400k-a-week salary demands.
Salah told reporters before the Champions League final that he would be staying at Liverpool for the 2022-23 season but memorably refused to rule out a move to La Liga back in 2020.
Liverpool join race for Matthijs de Ligt?
Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt first rose to prominence as a teenager at Ajax, and the now-22-year-old has gone from strength-to-strength at the Allianz Stadium.
However, the Netherlands international sees his contract with the Old Lady expire in 2024, and he has allegedly informed the club that he does not intend to sign a new deal.
According to Correire dello Sport - via the Liverpool Echo - Klopp's side could be one of a number of Premier League teams hoping to strike a deal for De Ligt amid the contract revelations.
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is also keen on a reunion with his ex-Ajax protege, though, and Chelsea are rumoured to be at the head of the queue as they seek to replace Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
De Ligt has scored eight goals and provided three assists in 117 games for Juventus since his £77m move from Ajax in the summer of 2019.
Bayern Munich open to Serge Gnabry exit
Serge Gnabry never quite made it in the Premier League with Arsenal, but the Germany international could be given another chance to strut his stuff in England.
Gnabry only has a little over 12 months left to run on his contract at the Allianz Arena and will soon have the added competition of Sadio Mane to contend with.
The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with an exit from the Bundesliga champions amid his uncertain contract situation, and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has insisted that the door is open for Gnabry to leave if an agreement over fresh terms cannot be reached.
"We really want to keep him. I hope that he chooses Bayern. If a player doesn't want to decide for the club, then we can find a solution that makes everyone happy," Salihamidzic told Sky Deutschland.
The likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Real Madrid have all been credited with an interest in Gnabry, who scored 14 goals in 34 Bundesliga outings in 2021-22.
