We are getting ever closer to the start of the new Premier League season and Liverpool fans will be hoping for at least one or two more signings before their first game against Norwich City on August 14.
The Reds seem to be more focused on outgoings than incomings at the moment, with Marko Grujic and Harry Wilson having departed and Xherdan Shaqiri expected to join them in the near future.
But they are still being linked with a whole host of world-class talent, and could well make their move in the market in the coming few weeks.
Here are all the latest rumours coming out of Anfield…
Reds 'ready to pay' for Saul

Liverpool have been strongly linked with Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul ever since his proposed move to Barcelona broke down.
The Spanish international looks a potentially perfect replacement for Gini Wijnaldum, and would certainly tick a number of boxes for Klopp.
With Manchester United and Chelsea also thought to be expressing interest in the 26-year-old, the Reds could well face fierce competition for his signature.

But according to Spanish outlet Diario AS they have now decided that they are willing to meet Atletico's £41m asking price.
And given that the player himself has praised Liverpool in the past, agreeing personal terms should not be a problem if, indeed, an acceptable offer is made.
Midfield target responds to links
Another man who has been touted with a switch to Anfield is Hoffenheim's Christoph Baumgarter.
The central midfielder impressed in the Bundesliga, making 31 appearances and scoring six goals, and many expect him to move on to a bigger club in the near future.
The player himself was asked about rumours linking him with a Premier League move by Sport1, and failed to rule out a transfer.
“It is, of course, better if there are positive rumours instead of negative ones," Baumgarter said.
“But I feel very comfortable here and can develop well here. In football, you can never say 1000 per cent of what happens within a few months – but I am very happy here and see a great opportunity here to develop myself and the team."
Haaland provides update
Erling Haaland has played down speculation he could leave Dortmund this summer

Erling Haaland is a name which won't go away this summer, with Liverpool among the clubs touted as possible destinations for the Dortmund wonderkid.
But the Norwegian does not appear in a rush to leave Germany just yet judging by his latest comments.
When asked about a potential £100m-plus move at his side's training camp, he said: “Before yesterday I hadn't spoken with my agent [for] one month. So you have the answer.
“I hope it’s only rumours because it’s a lot of money for a person."
“First of all I have three years left on my contract. I’m enjoying my time here. But of course the trophy was important because that's what I want."
