Insider gives Liverpool FC transfer update on Domagoj Vida and Jack Grealish
Liverpool FC won't be signing Domagoj Vida or Jack Grealish this summer, according to Daily Mirror reporter David Maddock
Liverpool FC have “zero interest” in summer deals to sign Croatia defender Domagoj Vida or Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish, according to Merseyside reporter David Maddock.
The Reds have been linked with a potential swoop to sign Vida following his impressive performances alongside Liverpool FC centre-half Dejan Lovren at the World Cup.
Lovren and Vida have been an impressive partnership as Croatia managed to progress the World Cup semi-finals where they will face Gareth Southgate’s England on Wednesday night.
Reports in Turkey earlier this week suggested that Liverpool FC were keen to sign the 29-year-old to provide cover for both Lovren and Virgil van Dijk next season.
Liverpool FC have also been linked with a move to sign England Under-21 international Grealish after Aston Villa missed out on promotion to the Premier League.
However, Daily Mirror reporter Maddock ruled out the Reds signing Grealish or Vida in the summer transfer window.
Maddock wrote on Twitter: “Liverpool have ZERO interest in Croatia centre half Domagoj Vida, despite widespread reports in Turkey claiming bid has been lodged. Same applies to Villa’s Jack Grealish. Priority in window remains versatile attacking midfielder #LFC”
Liverpool FC started the summer spending with the addition of Brazilian midfielder Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.
The Reds have also added RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita to their squad to help replace German star Emre Can following his move from Juventus.
