Here is a roundup of the top Liverpool news and gossip from icfootballnews that we think you may have missed today –

West Ham chairman David Sullivan has confirmed captain Declan Rice will be sold this summer, and now LIVERPOOL have joined the race for the player

Liverpool had one of their worst seasons in recent memory and finished outside the Champions League places – and outside of the top four – they were awful.

And that has led to rumours that a number of players will get signed by new boss Jurgen Klopp  this summer.

Over the past few seasons – Declan Rice has developed into one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and a man that could go on to become one of the best in the world.

The England midfielder became only the third Hammers skipper to lift a trophy, after victory over Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League.

He is a player that Chelsea and Arsenal are really interested in acquiring – but there is now claims on the SUn which have claimed that LIVERPOOL are interested in a possible deal – claiming he could be the idea partner for new signing Alexis Mac Allister

Sullivan admitted a gentleman’s agreement means they will allow a player who still has two years remaining on his contract to leave.

Asked whether lifting the trophy in Prague was Rice’s last action as a West Ham player, Sullivan told talkSPORT: “I think it has to be. We promised him he could go.

“He set his heart on going and in due course he has to get on and we have to get a replacement.

“It is not something we wanted to happen. We offered him £200,000 a week 18 months ago and he turned it down. You can’t keep a player who doesn’t want to be there.

“I think the offers will start to come today.

‘Three or four clubs have shown interest but out of respect to West Ham, while we’re still playing, you don’t make offers for players.”

Mac Allister message sent – 

LIVERPOOL have been told they have worked some transfer magic with the deal that will see Alexis Mac Allister join from Brighton.

The 24-year-old became the Reds’ first addition of the summer on Thursday, after an agreement was reached for his transfer from Brighton & Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee.

And after seeing the Reds complete the signing of the World cup winner – Simon Jordan has hailed the Reds for their brilliant bit of transfer business.

“I don’t think Brighton have particularly tied him up have they. What did they achieve (by getting him to sign a new deal)?” Simon Jordan told talkSPORT.

“You’ve got a World Cup winner coming back. They tied him up to be able to give him to Liverpool at a (fee) properly below market value.

‘I imagine (Brighton) will be a little bit disappointed with the situation.

“Because it’s happening rather quickly. I thought that we’d got Mac Allister tied up in a situation where someone was going to have to pay top money for him. Top money.

“I’d have wanted more for him. I want these big clubs that come along and take everyone else’s vision and don’t do it themselves, to have to pay the prerequisite price for it.”

Mac Allister is ready for this kind of move – it is perfect timing for him to join a big club.

It is alot of money to pay for the man – but he fully deserves that price tag after the season that he has had – the only worry is now whether or not he will be able to adapt to life at one of the big teams.

There will be all sorts of pressure for him to make an instant impact – but that doesnt hide the fact he is a classy player

Thuram on way?

With Alexis Mac Allister over the line, LIVERPOOL are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign OGC Nice midfielder Khephren Thuram.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp knows that his current side are not good enough to compete with Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and possibly Chelsea for that Premier League title next season.

He knows that he needs to add some more quality to the squad – some more depth and freshness – and that had les to rumours that the exciting Thuram is a man that the club are interested in.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a breakout campaign in the south of France and earned a call-up to the senior national team as well as a place in the Ligue 1 Team of the Season.

And after they sealed the signing of Alexis Mac Allister – according to Football Transfers journalist Jacque Talbot, the Reds and Thuram have agreed to terms as his arrival at Anfield inches closer.

Negotiations between the Merseysiders and the Ligue 1 club are well underway as Jurgen Klopp looks to secure the Frenchman’s signature early in the transfer window.

Former Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has already informed Klopp that Liverpool could be getting a player that is destined for the top of the game: “Khephren is another talented player here,” Ramsey said in February.

“I think he’s definitely got a big future ahead of him if he carries on the way he’s going at the minute. He’s very dangerous, very powerful, a very strong dribbler of the ball.

“Hopefully, he can keep progressing.

‘He’s another player that can go all the way to the top I feel. I enjoy playing alongside him in the middle of the park; I think we have a good balance in there.

‘Now it’s just about adding a few more goals to our games.”
