Liverpool transfer news roundup: Reds scupper Gvardiol move, Henderson latest & Barella links

It's Saturday morning and there's no work, but there are Liverpool transfer rumours. Lots of them. Here you go...

Man City's 11th-hour snag in the signing of Josko Gvardiol could be down, in part, to Liverpool (what a pity!). RB Leipzig's sporting chief Max Erbel told Sky Germany: "The transfer of Szoboszlai has secured us financially. We don't need the money". So, so sorry lads.

However, City could be turning their transfer lasers to oft-Liverpool-linked Nicolo Barella, according to TuttoMercatoWeb. Read more on that here.

Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson missed Liverpool training on Friday as his move to Al-Ettifaq (finally) nears completion.

DaveOCKOP says Hendo could have his medical in the U.K. this weekend.

One man not leaving any more is Thiago. AS say Barcelona are not interested in their former star.

On to replacements then and Gladbach's sporting director – who happens to be the son of Jorg Schmadtke — has said Manu Kone is 'far away' from a transfer as the midfielder continues his recovery from injury, via Rheinische Post.

Dietmar Hamann has urged the Reds to break the bank for Moises Caicedo (because, why not? It's not his money). He told betting site LordPing the Brighton star would be a 'great signing'. Cheers Didi.

Jeremy Doku — frequent botherer of Liverpool transfer columns — is wanted by Aston Villa, say Sports Zone.

And finally, Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he is open to managing Germany, but is too loyal to drop Liverpool and run off to Die Mannschaft right now. Read the full story on that here.
