The most recent news regarding the Liverpool transfer window, including updates on Rayan Ait-Nouri, Ryan McAidoo, and Virgil van Dijk’s future.

Fearing that Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk would leave Anfield this summer, clubs all over the Saudi Pro League are reportedly very interested in signing him.

The Dutch international’s contract is scheduled to end in the summer of 2019. Reports indicate that negotiations on a possible renewal are presently at a stalemate, while the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) is scheduled to meet with the player’s representatives in the upcoming weeks to discuss a deal.

“The Big Four”—Al-Ittihad, Al-Ahli, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr, and Neymar’s Al-Hilal—are among the PIF-controlled teams in the league. All four of these teams have big salaries for star players who have joined the league recently, with Van Dijk being the next big target that the entire league is vying for.

Journalist Abdel Hamad claims that Liverpool is “in pole position” to capture Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Rayan Ait-Nouri this summer.

In addition to exhibiting strong defensive abilities, the Moroccan striker was a major threat to Premier League opponents last season. If they decided to make the transfer, the star would make a nice addition to new head coach Arne Slot’s side for the upcoming campaign.

With just two years remaining on his present contract in the Midlands, Slot may find a new asset. Wolves had previously been said to value the player at £40 million and are reportedly willing to entertain bids in that range.

In addition, Ryan McAidoo, a product of Chelsea’s development academy, will join Liverpool this summer in anticipation of Slot’s first season as manager.

The England youth international is said to have made up his mind to transfer to Anfield and has reportedly turned out a move to Chelsea’s north London rivals Arsenal, despite the Blues’ alleged best efforts to hold onto the talent.
