One of the summer signings in Liverpool opened his account for the club last night. Diogo Jota came off the bench to take a 3-1 Premier League win over Arsenal.
With Jota at Thiago and Kostas Tsimikas in Jürgen Klopp’s squad, attention has turned to the players who could leave Anfield this summer.
Dejan Lovren was the most famous sale this summer, while longtime midfielder Adam Lallana left for free after his contract expired.
However, there could be more players on the way before the European transfer deadline next week, while others could follow suit after October 5th, with Liverpool still allowed to do business with EFL clubs for another 11 days.
Liverpool strikers wanted by clubs in four countries
Liam Millar is in great demand after a successful loan stay in Scotland last season. Clubs from across Europe are reportedly interested in the Canadian striker.
The Canada international scored two goals for Kilmarnock on two separate loan stints before returning to Anfield to make his senior Reds debut in last season’s FA Cup.
According to Football Insider, nine clubs have entered the race for the 21-year-old, who can be loaned out again.
Those interested include six championship teams as well as Dundee United in Scotland, Rayo Vallecano in Spain’s second place and the Dutch PEC Zwolle, from which Liverpool signed Sepp van den Berg in 2019.
Millar has not extended the 82 minutes he played for Liverpool against Shrewsbury Town last season, but has eight caps for the Canadian senior team.
Burnley remains keen to seal the Wilson deal before the deadline
Burnley is still looking for a new mass player and hasn’t given up hope of hitting a deal for Harry Wilson in the coming days.
Liverpool are believed to want a fee north of £ 15m for the Wales international who was on loan at Bournemouth last season. The current offer from Sean Dyche’s side is said to be £ 12 million, with a further £ 4 million in fringe benefits.
According to LancsLive, Burnley remains confident of closing a deal before the Monday deadline, but the Clarets are in competition with Leeds United and Fulham, who are also named as potential candidates.

The reds confirm the loan of two goalkeepers
Liverpool have further tightened their squad following the new signings this season. The last urgency was to unload two goalkeepers who, as things stand today, are still a long way from the first team.
Both Loris Karius and Kamil Grabara were loaned out last season, but the pair remain on Liverpool’s books for the 2020-21 season.
With Alisson and Adrian both ahead of the pair and Caoimhin Kelleher making further progress, the Reds looked for buyers for the pair and have now found suitable targets.
Liverpool confirmed on their official website that Karius will join Taiwo Awoniyi, a loan player from the Reds, at Union Berlin, who finished 11th in the Bundesliga last season.
Grabara has joined AGF Aarhus on a second loan after spending the 2018/19 season with the Danish team.
The Polish U21 goalkeeper spent the last season in Huddersfield Town in the championship after signing a long-term deal with Liverpool in 2019.
