Latest Liverpool transfer news: Schalke interested in Portuguese starlet Rafa Camacho

Liverpool youngster Rafael Camacho has rejected a contract with the Reds and wants to leave Anfield, according to the Daily Mail.

The Portuguese starlet has attracted interest from Sporting Lisbon and Wolverhampton Wanderers, however, the report claims Bundesliga side Schalke are also keeping tabs on Camacho.

The Liverpool youngster was played in defence by Jurgen Klopp last season, and the Reds want £10million for the 19-year-old and a sell-on clause (h/t Daily Mail).

The youngster did a decent job at the back but can play in the attack too.

Old links to help Camacho’s sale?

Schalke are now managed by former Huddersfield coach David Wagner. The report claims that the former Terriers manager is aware of Camacho’s potential and believes the youngster can do well in the Bundesliga.

Several English talents have developed well in the Bundesliga recently. Jadon Sancho at Borussia Dortmund is a prime example while the Royal Blues have also signed Jonjoe Kenny on loan from Everton under Wagner.

The Schalke manager is one of Jurgen Klopp’s best friends, and it will be interesting to see if he can use this link to land the Portuguese starlet.

Wagner was also the best man at Klopp’s wedding and the pair spent time at Borussia Dortmund too.

Getting £10million for Camacho would be a great deal given that he didn’t play too many games last season.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!

Liverpool FC transfer news: Pepe stalling on Napoli move as he wants to join Reds

Ivorian sensation Nicolas Pepe is stalling on a move to Napoli because he wants to join Liverpool, according to Napolista (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The 24-year-old had an excellent campaign for Lille last season as they finished second to Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1.

Pepe scored 22 goals and provided 11 assists in the league, and the winger was also a part of the Ivory Coast side that participated in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The report adds that the Serie A giants offered €50million plus Adam Ounas for Pepe, however, the Ivorian wants a move to Anfield.

Liverpool having a quiet summer window

The Reds were extremely busy last summer but this time around, they haven’t been too active.

Only Sepp van den Berg has joined the club, and the youngster should feature for the Reds in pre-season soon.

Liverpool have been linked with Pepe throughout the summer, and it is interesting to see that the winger is still with Lille.

Joining Liverpool is a no-brainer for him given that we won the Champions League last season and could do better in the following campaign.

The only problem in a move for Pepe would be his position. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane cannot be replaced in the first XI while Roberto Firmino is coming off a wonderful Copa America campaign.

Pepe would want first-team starts at his next club and that is something Liverpool cannot guarantee him right now.

Boost for Liverpool as PL club prefers selling star man to Champions League clubs

Latest Liverpool transfer news: Palace prefer selling Zaha to clubs such as Liverpool and not Arsenal

Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol claims Crystal Palace are open to selling Wilfried Zaha to a Champions League club.

The Express claims that Arsenal saw a £40million bid rejected for Zaha in January, and Palace want at least double of that amount for the Ivorian.

Zaha is one of the best attackers in the Premier League and prefers a move to Arsenal, however, Palace are under no pressure to sell the 26-year-old (h/t Express).

However, Solhekol believes Palace will only sell if they get the right price, and won’t stand in the way if a top club approaches them.

The Sky reporter was speaking on the Transfer Window podcast and named Liverpool as one club that Palace would not have objections selling to (h/t Express):

“They are saying ‘look, he’s our player, we would understand if he wanted to leave to go and play for a Champions League club, but Arsenal are not a Champions League club’.

“They wouldn’t stand in his way if Barcelona or Real Madrid or PSG or Manchester City or Liverpool were trying to sign him.

“But when it comes to Arsenal, they don’t feel that the attraction there is as much as it would be at a club that was in the Champions League.”

Palace have already sold one star in the summer

The Eagles have been busy this summer and sold Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United for £50m (h/t Express).

Zaha would be a great addition to the team but he would not be able to replace any of our front three at the moment.

The Ivorian would provide cover to our attackers but he would want to start games regularly after impressing at Selhurst Park.

“Maybe the time has come” – Liverpool stalwart opens up about chances of landing Ballon d’Or

Latest Liverpool news: Van Dijk believes a defender can win the Ballon d’Or

Virgil van Dijk gave a lengthy interview to LiverpoolFC.com, where he spoke about celebrating the Champions League win with the Reds and how the team has grown since he arrived at the club.

The former Southampton defender was possibly the best centre-back in the world last season and won the PFA Player of the Year award.

Van Dijk made our defence one of the best in Europe, and the Dutch defender was asked about winning the Ballon d’Or, an award that has been lifted mostly by attackers in recent years:

“It’s an honour if people are talking about it, but what can I do? I have no influence on anything. The people that have an influence on it, they have to decide who’s going to win it.”

The Liverpool star added that he had a great season last time around and wanted an even better campaign in the coming months.

The Dutchman was reminded that the last defender to win the award was Fabio Cannavaro in 2016, and Van Dijk believed that things could change:

“Maybe now, I don’t know. I can understand the fact that normally strikers or No.10s win these kind of awards because it’s more attractive to see. But maybe the time has come to change it.”

Van Dijk in a battle to land the honour

The Dutch defender has been supreme since joining from St. Mary’s and should improve further in the coming seasons.

It will be interesting to see who wins the Ballon d’Or this time. Lionel Messi won the La Liga title with Barcelona while Cristiano Ronaldo won the Nations League and the Serie A title.

However, Van Dijk lifted the Champions League in the summer and hopefully, a Liverpool player wins the crown.
