Liverpool Prepared to Reach Agreement for $66.5million Star with Huge Move

Liverpool are serious about signing a top quality attacker this summer and the likes of Mohamed Salah and Gelson Martins are heavily linked with the Anfield club.

Earlier in the day, we covered a report (via KingFut) claiming that the Reds are close to signing Salah from Roma after accepting to meet the asking price of 45 million euros.

Now, Portuguese source A Bola have claimed that Liverpool are prepared to make a huge move of €50million to hire the services of Martins from Sporting CP.

Not so long ago, it was reported (via Daily Mail) that Liverpool were in negotiations to sign the 22-year-old winger, who has a release clause of 52 million pounds ($66.5million) in his contract.

As per Saturday’s edition of A Bola, Sporting rejected Liverpool’s initial offer worth €40m-45m for the attacker and will not settle for less than €50million. The report says that the Reds are now ready to break the bank and hope that they can reach an agreement to finally secure his signing.

In the last campaign, Gelson featured in 44 games for Sporting, scored 7 goals and provided 14 assists. In your opinion, should Liverpool sign Salah or Martins? Highly unlikely that they will sign both.

    LFC is in desperate need for depth of the team. Two crucial places are defense and Coutinho/Mane backup. This season have shown that either of Coutinho or Mane missing = dramatically poorer attack. Hence it is not outrageous and impossible idea to have two backups for these two, particularly as Coutinho will almost certainly be gone next Summer. So, while Salah is better fit- ideally both. Though I think that the best option would be Salah and another player, upcoming youngster in that type of position: Pulisic.

    Totally Agree with you Ma Dus that we desperately need to both upgrade and increase the quality of our Squad
    I keep being torn to Bits by other so called Liverpool fans saying that I’m stupid wanting to replace so many players
    But what I keep telling everyone is that Liverpool need quite a few players to both increase the quality of the team and as a squad as a whole and that buying 3 or 4 players just won’t do what is required to be able to compete on the 2 fronts ie Premiership and Champions League and you only need to remember what happened to us when we Lost Mane for the Africa cup and when he got injured then finally what happened at the back when Lovren was out injured then Matip had to sit out some games also then we had to go to the Backup Partnership of
    Lucas and Klaven so right away you would hope we could bring in 2 new CB’S especially with Sakho heading out of the door come the summer !!! Plus some Fans are calling for FSG to go and sell the club to a wealthy Arab or someone but some Fans are forgetting that FSG are supplying Klopp with a reported £200-£250M Transfer Kitty plus all money from the sale of players Which means Klopp could have over £300M !!! But Nobody knows the actual figures FSG are handing Klopp but they are aware the time is right now to invest in Klopp and Liverpool and for me we do need a few Positions Filled with more quality as a whole and the following positions to me are vital
    So I will start off with Strikers and I would love to see 2 New Strikers Arrive and the sale of Sturridge and we don’t know how Ings will go after 2 major Injuries in as many years so for me let’s go all out for Lacazetta Or Aubameyang and then Werner as the 2nd striker as we won’t get both Lacazetta or Aubameyang so for me leta get Lacazetta and Werner please klopp !!! Then we Need 2 Wingers 1 to play opposite side to Mane and 1 on the Bench who can play Both Sides..Then we Need atleast 1 CM Keita I would love at the club but wouldn’t be surprised if Klopp go’s for 2 in CM then we Need a DM which is a MUST Plus also a LB or 2 and sell Moreno then finally it’s the position we are finding hard to buy in for and that’s CB and without doubt I would Buy in 2 CB’s but have no Idea if we are truly finished with or moving on from Virgil van Dijk ?? So with that up in the air I won’t put forward his name !! So again personally I would love J Tah And then any of the following CB’s but there are so many we have been linked with so here go’s Lucas Hernandez, KOULIBALY, De Vrij, Jorge Mere, Nacho, Willi Orban
    To name just a few but who ever Klopp brings into the club i have 100% Faith in Klopp.. YNWA
