Transfer Gossip: Liverpool Eyeing Newcastle’s Guimaraes with Summer Move Looming, Goalkeeper Shake-Up in the Works

Reds Considering £98m Deal for Brazilian Midfielder as FFP Woes Plague Newcastle; Sunderland Stopper Emerges as Replacement for Kelleher

In the midst of a challenging period for Newcastle United, Liverpool is reportedly poised to trigger the buy-out clause in Bruno Guimaraes’ contract, offering a potential lifeline to the Magpies who are grappling with financial constraints.

Currently sitting in 10th place in the Premier League and facing FFP restrictions, Newcastle finds themselves in a precarious position, prompting talks of potential asset sales. The Mirror suggests that Liverpool is eyeing a summer move for Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, recognizing the £98 million buy-out clause embedded in his contract. This follows a year after the Reds initially engaged in talks with Newcastle over a possible deal. The financial circumstances at the end of this season might pave the way for a transfer, with Liverpool, PSG, Barcelona, and Chelsea reportedly monitoring the 26-year-old.

In addition to the midfield pursuits, Liverpool is also considering a reshuffle in their goalkeeping department. The Mirror reports that the Reds are open to selling Caoimhin Kelleher for £20 million, providing the Republic of Ireland international with an opportunity to secure regular first-team action. Celtic has shown interest, and Brentford was previously linked.

To fill the potential void left by Kelleher, Liverpool is eyeing Sunderland’s Anthony Patterson. The 23-year-old ex-England Under-21 goalkeeper has amassed 105 senior appearances for the Black Cats and is under contract for another two and a half years.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s ex-captain Jordan Henderson’s future is in the spotlight, as conflicting reports emerge regarding his desire to leave Al-Ettifaq in the Saudi Pro League. Big clubs like Juventus and Ajax are reportedly interested in rescuing him from his current situation. Ajax coach John van ‘t Schip confirmed the ongoing talks with Henderson but noted that there are still arrangements to be made in Saudi Arabia. The Daily Mail suggests that Henderson must convince Al-Ettifaq to release him, as the club is reportedly resistant to considering any offers for the 33-year-old this month.
