With the Premier League season at an end, the Reds have already kickstarted their summer transfer window.

On Friday, the club announced the signing of French defender Ibrahima Konaté from RB Leipzig.

The Reds are also close too revealing the signing of RB Salzburg striker Patson Daka according to reports.

However, the rumour mill continues to turn and Liverpool are still at the heart of it.

According to reports from Caught Offiside, via Empire of the Kop, Liverpool are ready to rival Manchester United for Saúl Ñíguez.

The Spanish midfielder has been a key component for Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid over the last few years.

Although this season, he has seen his playing time decreased, starting only 22 games in La Liga.

Despite Caught Offside stating Manchester United’s interest in the midfielder, Liverpool are prepared to rival them.

This depends on Saul’s desire to leave the Spanish club, however, with them winning the La Liga title last season.

With a current market value of £49.5million according to Transfermarkt, the midfielder would cost a premium.

This summer will provide a great opportunity for both club’s to get a better look at Saul with the Euro’s.

Having been selected for Spain, the tournament will allow the Reds to get a good valuation of the player.

Saùl is clearly and impressive player and at just 26-years-old, has plenty more to give during his career.

Not only this, but with Thiago on the books at Liverpool, the pair can form quite the Spanish connection in midfield.
