Why Burnley hold the keys for Liverpool’s potential Domenico Berardi move

Liverpool’s quiet summer

Liverpool have had a quiet summer on the incomings front, with only Ibrahim Konate arriving on Merseyside. Meanwhile, several fringe players have departed, and a number of senior players have had their contracts extended, meaning that despite the illusion, it has not been a bad window.

Nevertheless, when other sides around them continue to spend record-setting amounts, it is easy to think it has been.

In fact, Klopp hinted ahead of the new Premier League season that players would have to leave the club before he made any further signings, saying that:

“You have to make changes from time to time, but then there must be room to do it. We do not want more players.”

Since these comments, Shaqiri has been subject of significant interest from French side Lyon, but the Ligue 1 outfit have, as of yet, been unable to find the money to make an offer deemed acceptable by Jurgen Klopp.

Lyon, in turn, are awaiting an injection of funds from Lyon, with the Lancashire outfit having made a bid for winger Maxwel Cornet.

This sale would, in turn, allow Lyon to purchase Shaqiri, which would free up a squad space in Klopp’s Liverpool side.

Berardi hands in transfer request

Meanwhile, long-time Liverpool target Domenico Berardi has, as per several Italian outlets, handed in a transfer request today.

The winger fits the profile that Liverpool are looking to add to their squad this summer, with Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane both due to miss a month of Premier League action through Africa Cup of Nations commitments for Egypt and Senegal respectively.

Liverpool will reportedly have to fight off interest from Fiorentina and AC Milan, but Sassuolo may prefer to sell abroad, especially to the more money-heavy Premier League.

To make the deal work, however, the Merseyside outfit are reliant on a favour from Sean Dyche and his side.
