Liverpool transfer news and rumours: Summer transfer window 2022


Wrapping up the Liverpool transfer news, rumours and gossip in the 2022 summer window.

Mane: I respect Liverpool | ‘We’ll see over future’

Sadio Mane insists he respects Liverpool “a lot” and that he was joking when he said he would fulfil the apparent wishes of Senegalese fans for him to leave Anfield.

Mane, who has 12 months left on his current deal and been strongly linked with a move to Bayern Munich – said this week that up to 70 per cent of Senegalese people wanted him to move clubs.

However, after scoring a hat-trick for his country against Benin on Saturday, Mane rowed back slightly on his comments, saying: “I spoke yesterday while joking with a bit of humour and it was everywhere. I think we’ll stop there.

“Liverpool is a club I respect a lot. The fans adopted me since day one. Regarding the future, we’ll see.”

Bayern Munich are confident they can sign Mane for less than €50m (£42.5m) this summer, according to Sky Germany.

Monaco want at least €80m (£68m) for the 22-year-old France midfielder, who is also attracting interest from Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain.

Champions League winners Real are offering Tchouameni a five-year contract to make the move to Spain.

Primarily a defensive-minded player, Tchouameni is comfortable in several midfield positions and Monaco team-mate Cesc Fabregas has previously suggested he also has the ability to play in the No 10 role.

The 18-year-old has produced some inspiring performances that have showcased his natural talent attracting interest from top clubs in England and Europe.

But it appears to be Liverpool who are winning the race for the young player who is regarded by many as one of the most talented teenagers in European football. He broke into the team last season and has made 39 appearances for the Dons in total and made his European debut in a 5-1 victory over Swedish side BK Hacken back in July in a UEFA Europa Conference League qualifier, starting at right-back and setting up the first goal. This season he has one goal and nine assists in all competitions.
