Update: Sunday's Liverpool transfer news

It's been a slow week for news since the Champions League final, but with the summer transfer window having been open for a month, there's no shortage of Liverpool rumours.


Today, the big updates are about a handful of players. Namely, Nicolas Pepe, Joao Felix and that one we're all too well-versed in now, Matthijs De Ligt.


The claims regarding Pepe are basically the same as Saturday, with an RMC Sport's journalist saying that Liverpool are in negotiations for the winger.


Another report says that we've made an initial £59 million bid for the player. Many fan's concerns are that the signing of such an expensive player would signal the exit of either Sadio Mane or Mo Salah.


Elsewhere, an update on Matthijs De Ligt suggests that his agent, Mino Raiola, would prefer his star boy to join Klopp's team. So says the Mirror.


The one caveat being that he would have to become the club's top earner. With Liverpool very evenly balanced, both on and off the pitch at the moment, we just can't see anybody at the club - let alone Jurgen Klopp - sanctioning such a potentially disruptive deal.


The final news comes from Benfica, with young Portuguese star Joao Felix apparently having asked to leave the club.


19 year old Portugal international Felix is going to be very hot property this summer, with Liverpool, Man City and Man Utd topping a whole host of European sides that are keen.


Benfica president Filipe Vieira was the man that announced the player wanted to leave the club and a fee of around 120 million Euros would be required to sign him from his club.
