Liverpool keen on two exciting attackers and world class keeper while former Reds flop targeted for London move: transfer rumours

The transfer rumours surrounding Liverpool are continuing apace with the club now linked with a move for Real Madrid's goalkeeper.

Diario Gol reports that club President Florentino Perez is yet to be convinced by KEYLOR NAVAS and that the player himself is becoming increasingly tired of rumours of various goalkeepers being targeted to replace him. According to the Spanish outlet, the Costa Rican has instructed his agent to listen to offers from elsewhere and Jurgen Klopp is becoming interested.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have also been linked with moves for Monaco midfielder THOMAS LEMAR and 17 year-old Mexican forward DIEGO LAINEZ.

The Reds will have to compete with the likes of Arsenal and Barcelona to land Lemar's signature, according to reports. The Daily Telegraph say that a number of clubs are eyeing the French international. The Gunners launched a failed £90million bid in August, the collapse of which meant Manchester City's £60million attempted purchase of ALEXIS SANCHEZ also fell through.

Lainez, meanwhile, has been watched by Liverpool scouts, according to ESPN Deportes. The attacker plays for Liga MX side Club America and broke through to the first team last season on the left wing, although he has also proved his worth in attacking midfield.

Arsenal and Chelsea are tracking RB Leipzig keeper PETER GULACSI as a potential target, The Sun reports. The former Liverpool goalkeeper has impressed after joining the Bundesliga side in 2015 and could be offered a return to the Premier League in January.

Chelsea are to offer midfielder CESC FABREGAS a new deal in the hope of beating off any advances from former manager Jose Mourinho, according to The Times. The Spanish international has around a year and a half left on his contract at Stamford Bridge, where he joined in 2014 for around £30million. Manchester United have reportedly been monitoring Fabregas, 30, as an alternative target to MESUT OZIL, whose Arsenal contract expires in the summer.

Manchester United midfielder MICHAEL CARRICK is to snub any January advances from other Premier League clubs in a show of loyalty to his manager, the Metro reports. Mourinho is willing to keep the 36-year-old on, despite only making one appearance so far this season.

Another Leipzig performer, Dayot Upamecano, may also make a January move to Britain if Mourinho follows through with a plan reported in the Daily Express. The French 19-year-old central defender already has several years of experience in top-flight football. As a result AC Milan are also said to have him in their sights.
