Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Saturday, July 11.

The buildup to the summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Liverpool eye possible reinforcements.

Jurgen Klopp's league leaders have not been particularly busy during recent windows, but that has not stopped the rumour mill from linking them with additions.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Anfield.

Saturday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Premier League clubs in the shape of Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal are all reportedly weighing up summer moves for Schalke 04 midfielder Weston McKennie.

The 21-year-old, who has been capped on 19 occasions by the USA, joined Schalke from Dallas in 2017 and has made 91 appearances for the German club in all competitions.

The Texan was again a regular during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring three times and providing one assist in 32 appearances in all competitions but his future at Veltins-Arena is being called into question.

According to CBS Sports, McKennie is expected to leave the Bundesliga this summer, and a number of clubs from England, Spain, France and Germany are keen on a move.

The report claims that Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal are all in the hunt for the American, who still has four years left to run on his contract with David Wagner's side.

Schalke are believed to value the central midfielder in the region of £20m.

Juventus may reportedly be prepared to offer three of their fringe players in part-exchange for Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore.

After starring for the Premier League outfit for much of the season, the 24-year-old is being linked with a number of top European clubs ahead of the next window.

While there is said to be interest from Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United, Juve have also been credited as admirers of the Spaniard.

According to ESPN, the Serie A leaders want to put together a proposal which would see three players move in the opposite direction.

Goalkeeper Mattia Perin, as well as central defensive duo Daniele Rugani and Cristian Romero, would be included in any deal.

The report adds that Juventus would not be able to afford to sign Traore in a straight-cash proposal.
