Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is set to go on a £175M spending spree in the next 13 hours as the Reds boss looks to secure deals for trio Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Virgil Van Dijk and Thomas Lemar before tonight’s 11pm deadline, according to the Times.
As per the Times, Arsenal star Oxlade-Chamberlain has agreed a five-year deal with the Reds which should see the England star pocket a cool £120,000-a-week, with the player set to undergo a medical at St George’s Park before he completes his Anfield switch.
Oxlade-Chamberlain had rejected Premier League champions Chelsea after the Blues reached an agreement with the Gunners on Monday as reported by the Times, with the midfielder opting to join Liverpool over the west London side, with the Reds hoping to pull off two more deals today in the shape of Thomas Lemar and Virgil Van Dijk.
It has been reported by the Daily Star that Liverpool are willing to pay £70M for Monaco winger Lemar, who scored nine and assisted 11 for Monaco in the league last year as the French side won their eighth league title.
The Express are also reporting that Klopp’s side are more than prepared to pay £70M to Southampton for want-away star Virgil Van Dijk, which would be a world-record fee for a defender should a deal for the Netherlands star go through.
Should Liverpool pull of a small miracle and get deals done for all three stars before tonight’s deadline, it’ll definitely give the Merseyside club a massive boost as they look to win their first league title in 27 years.
