Simon Mignolet staying
Simon Mignolet looks set to stay at Liverpool, according to the Daily Star.
He made just two appearances for Liverpool – in a 2-1 League Cup defeat by Chelsea and a FA Cup loss against Wolves.
But the Reds expect the Belgium keeper to remain at Anfield after impressing Kop boss Jurgen Klopp with his team-first attitude.
He has played the role of understudy to Alisson unselfishly and ensured the club’s new No. 1 was properly prepared for every game.
Liverpool are NOT interested in signing Real Betis defender Junior Firpo.
Jurgen Klopp’s side and Manchester United were recently linked with the versatile left-back, who was supposedly being eyed as competition for Andrew Robertson.
However, the Liverpool Echo say there’s no truth behind the reports.
The report says neither Klopp or sporting director Michael Edwards have looked at the £45million-rated 22-year-old – despite Alberto Moreno leaving this summer.
Liverpool deal completed soon
Liverpool will officially complete the signing of Northern Irish teenager Conor Bradley on July 9 – his 16th birthday.
Bradley, 15, will arrive at Liverpool from Dungannon United’s youth side on a two-year scholarship deal.
The boyhood Liverpool fan and Northern Ireland Under-16 captain told the Ulster Herald: “I can’t wait to get over it’s a great opportunity.
“I’ll be part of the U18 squad and the good thing is I know the coaches and I know most of the boys in the team. Liverpool is the club I support, so yeah, you could definitely say it’s the dream for me. I can’t wait to get started.”
Divock Origi exit
Liverpool’s Champions League hero Divock Origi is being courted by a handful of European clubs with Real Betis leading the race for the Belgian’s signature, according to reports in Spain.
Liverpool are keen to keep Origi in their books and want to reward him with a new contract.
But according to Spanish newspaper Estadio Deportivo, Origi could be on his way out of the club before he can sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in January.
With just 12 months remaining on his deal, the striker is approaching the time when he will be free to speak to European clubs about a potential move and Betis are keen on targeting Origi.
The report also states that recently departed Betis chief Lorenzo Serra Ferrer was sent details about a potential transfer by a ‘trusted intermediary’ who is touting Origi around Europe.
