Liverpool find Mignolet replacement

Liverpool are eyeing Hull goalkeeper David Marshall as a potential replacement for the outgoing Simon Mignolet.

The Belgium international is now prepared to quit Anfield in his search of first team football.

And Klopp's scouting network have identified Marshall as a quality No.2 who won't break the bank.

According to the Scottish Sun, the Tigers are intending to offer their first-choice stopper a contract extension.

But it's believed the deal being lined up by Liverpool will blow it out of the water in financial terms.

United find Koulibaly replacement

Manchester United are turning to Benfica ace Ruben Dias after Napoli slapped a £150m price-tag on Senegal target Kalidou Koulibaly.

An initial £85m inquiry from Manchester United for central defender Koulibaly was rejected last week by the Serie A club.

Instead, the fallen Premier League giants' focus is firmly back on fast-rising Portuguese international Dias.

Centre-half Dias, 22, is six years younger than Koulibaly, who turns 28 next month, and would cost considerably less.

De Ligt to United off

Manchester United have reportedly ruled out a move for Ajax sensation Matthijs de Ligt.

Reports this weekend had suggested United had beaten Barcelona in the race to sign the £65m-rated defender.

But according to Sky Sports, the Premier League giants are no longer pursuing a deal due to De Ligt's wage demands.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains in the market for a centre-back, with Benfica's Ruben Dias his No.1 target.

Liverpool hijack planned

Liverpool are planning to sign Joao Pedro from Fluminense - despite the fact he's already agreed to join Watford.

According to the Mail on Sunday, Pedro is one of their targets and scouts watched him score a hat-trick last week.

The 17-year-old has scored seven goals in his first 10 games for the club and Manchester United are also believed to be keen.

The Brazilian has already agreed a £2m move to Vicarage Road and he's due to leave Fluminense next January.

But a clause means Liverpool can hijack the deal in the coming weeks.
