Only one game remains in Liverpool’s 2021/22 season as the build-up continues to the Champions League final this weekend.
The Reds have enjoyed a hugely successful season and have the opportunity to end the current campaign on a high in Paris on Saturday when taking on Real Madrid at the Stade de France. Jurgen Klopp’s side are still on course for a remarkable treble after winning both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup earlier this season.
Despite the extremely fruitful season it has already been, work continues to take place in the background as Liverpool prepare for their summer transfer business.
We have rounded up the latest Reds transfer gossip.
Liverpool transfer target Aurelien Tchouameni has chosen to join Real Madrid, according to reports.
Liverpool’s pursuit of Tchouameni has been one of the transfer sagas of the early summer. As one of the most sought after young players in Europe this summer, the Monaco midfielder has been valued at £59m. There have been conflicting reports emanating from Europe throughout the past month with suggestions including that Liverpool were in pole position for his signature and that Real Madrid weren’t planning to add to their midfield options this summer.
However, Real Madrid were always seen as favourites for the French international and their plans have apparently changed after being snubbed by Kylian Mbappe. RMC Sport has said that the midfielder has now chosen to join the Spanish club.

Liverpool’s hopes of signing promising Scottish right-back Calvin Ramsay could be scuppered by Serie A side Bologna.
Ramsay has emerged as one of Scotland’s rising stars since making his debut for Aberdeen last season and was recently crowned the Scottish Football Writers’ Young Player of the Year. The 18-year-old Scotland Under 21 international is seen as a potential long-term understudy to Trent Alexander-Arnold and has made 33 appearances for his club this campaign.
Italian outfit Bologna attempted to sign Ramsay in January for a deal worth £4.8million and now The Scotsman has reported that they have made another effort to get the deal over the line.
The Dons rejected this bid for the teenager in January and reports say that the Reds also face competition from Leeds United for his signature. A rumoured £4m fee would also include significant performance-related-add-ons. If he were to join Jurgen Klopp’s side, he would be expected to fill the void left by Neco Williams who has impressed on loan at Fulham during the second half of this season.
Bids are expected for the Welsh international who is in search of regular first team football after an impressive breakout year and with the Qatar World Cup on the horizon. Liverpool value Wil…
