Real football has the potential to be infuriating like nothing else.
Really, really week-ruining-ly infuriating.
Why not take your mind off of all that with some lovely transfer rumours? Transfer rumours will make everything better...
Liverpool are taking a 'keen interest' in 19-year-old Sao Paulo defender Lucas Beraldo, according to 90min.
The Reds are known to be looking at improving their defensive depth and the young centre back has been one of the top performers in Brazil of late.
Liverpool scouts are keeping a close eye on him, apparently.
TalkSPORT pundit and former Premier league striker Darren Bent has told Liverpool to sign underused Man City midfielder Kalvin Phillips to free up Alexis Mac Allister.
The Reds have added Pedro Neto to the list of potential targets for when Mohamed Salah leaves the club, according to Football Transfers.
However, it is said that Liverpool are 'unhappy' with Wolves' current valuation of the 23-year-old Portuguese forward who has a goal and four assists in 2023/24.
Liverpool could spring for long-term target Aurelien Tchouameni in the January window, with the French star struggling for game time at Real Madrid, according to Fichajes.
It is even speculated that the Reds could do a loan deal for the player Los Blancos paid €80m for as recently as the summer of 2022. Don't get your hopes up...
And finally, Liverpool's vice-captain is close to signing a fresh contract that could be worth over £55m – £200k a week plus bonuses – say Football Insider.
