Liverpool's links with midfielders across Europe are reaching a fever pitch following Georginio Wijnaldum's Anfield exit.

The Dutchman joined Paris Saint-Germain on a three-year deal on Thursday, leaving Anfield chiefs with the unenviable task of plugging the hole left by one of their most reliable performers.

The latest midfielder linked with a transfer to Anfield plies his trade with Lazio and is a familiar name for Liverpool fans, while the Reds also have a second target in Serie A, according to reports in Italy.

But Jurgen Klopp is also monitoring players in his native Germany, with one Borussia Monchengladbach star believed to have caught his eye.

The likelihood is Liverpool will be made to wait to complete signings until after Euro 2020, which kicked off on Friday night.

But there will be no let-up for their scouts and negotiators; here is Saturday's Liverpool transfer round-up.

'Monstrous' Milinkovic-Savic bid readied

Liverpool are preparing an enormous offer to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports in Italy.

The 26-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time and the Reds are believed to have rekindled their interest.

Milinkovic-Savic scored eight times and contributed an eye-catching 10 assists in Serie A this season, and Rome-based newspaper Il Messaggero claims Liverpool see him as an ideal replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

But the Serbia international is under contract at Stadio Olimpico for another three years, meaning it would take a 'monstrous' offer to prise him from Lazio.

Reds making progress in Romero pursuit

Staying in Italy, Liverpool are making progress in their pursuit of Cristian Romero as they continue to closely monitor the Atalanta centre-back.

That's according to Calciomercato , which claims Romero is valued at €50million (£43m) by the Serie A club.

But before they can look to offload Romero at a considerable profit, Atalanta must turn the Argentina international's loan from Juventus into a permanent deal, and they have a €16million (£14m) option to do so.

Romero, 23, was crowned the best defender in Serie A this season after his rock-solid performances in defence helped Atalanta finish third in the league.

Neuhaus talks underway

Although Liverpool are believed to be keen on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, they are also monitoring an alternative midfield target, according to reports in Germany.

Sport 1 claims the Reds held talks this week over signing Borussia Monchengladbach star Florian Neuhaus.

The 24-year-old picked up an impressive tally of eight goals and eight assists in all competitions this season and is viewed as another potential Georginio Wijnaldum replacement.

The report adds Neuhaus' €40million (£34m) release clause has expired, meaning Liverpool can negotiate a lower fee.

Nonetheless, Gladbach are in a strong position as the Germany international has three years remaining on his contract at Borussia-Park.
