Liverpool have confirmed their first four signings of the Arne Slot era and are prepared to spend £128m to sign them. Leeds have held talks over making the Borussia Dortmund star their first signing of the summer, with Arsenal given the green light to make a £128m move. 65m striker.

SLOT’s first Liverpool contract is closer to being ‘more than 50% complete’.

Liverpool are set to sign the first signing of the Arne Slot era at Anfield, with the deal for Feyenoord defender Rutsharrell Gertruida reportedly now more than 50% complete.

The Dutch coach was officially confirmed as Jurgen Klopp’s successor on Monday, less than 24 hours after the charismatic Germany coach said his final farewell to a sunny and emotional Anfield.

Slot, who signed an initial three-year contract at Anfield that is scheduled to start on June 1, leaves Feyenoord after leading the Eredivisie side to two major trophies in two seasons.

However, work to strengthen Liverpool’s squad is well underway with Slot already clarifying a number of areas he would like to strengthen, with defense seen as an area of ​​the side that needs to improve.

As a result, we understand that Slot wants to make at least one, and potentially two, defensive additions ahead of next season. Now it appears that the first of them is already being finalized in the form of Geertruida.

The 23-year-old has shown versatility in the Feyenoord slot, playing as a league back, centre-back and even a holding midfielder during his time with De Quipp.

However, with his contract with the Rotterdam giants expiring in the summer of 2025, Feyenoord are expected to sell the seven-capped Dutch star this summer.

A well-known player to Slot, Virgil van Dijk and Cody Gakpo, Geertruida will fit in easily at Anfield and is now poised to become the first signing of a new era on Merseyside.

Geertruida opened up the importance of Arne Slot.

The player refused to reveal anything about his future when asked by 1908.nl, but was quick to highlight the impact Slot had on his career.

“I cannot give a clear answer to the question of whether the Excelsior at home was my last game,” he said.

“I have very little to say about that yet. What I’m trying to say is that asking for a lot of money for a signature is ridiculous. There are no further contract renewal discussions. It’s annoying when that kind of stuff gets reported in the media. Because that’s not right.

“The appreciation for the trainer was evident. He has changed a lot and we have made a big leap forward football-wise. I was a defender but played a lot in midfield. The slot was very important to my career.”

With negotiations to confirm the player’s new contract stalled, Liverpool’s new sporting director Richard Hughes is expected to secure the player’s contract at Anfield on a four-year deal as his first undertaking at Anfield with an offer worth €25m (£25m). It’s possible. 21.4m) would likely be enough to persuade Feyenoord to sell.

Liverpool want three more big-money signings after Feyenoord player

However, Geertruida is not the only defender Liverpool plans to sign, and according to reports in Spain, Manchester United is currently considered the most likely team in the race to sign Antonio Silva.

The Benfica defender has developed under the coaching of Roger Schmidt and is currently regarded as one of the best young defenders in world football.

Silva, who has made 90 appearances over the past two seasons, has also made nine appearances for Portugal, drawing comparisons to Manchester City’s standout defender Ruben Dias.

With a €100m transfer clause, Silva won’t come cheap as he has recently come under scrutiny from Manchester United and Real Madrid.

However, with both clubs prioritizing other targets – United want Jarrad Branthwaite’s Gleison Bremer, while Real are chasing Leny Yoro instead – Liverpool have had clear success in signing him.

And talks are reportedly currently underway to secure a move to Liverpool, with the Merseysiders hoping to secure his signature for an initial €50m (£42.7m) fee, with a fee that could be incentivized through a range of add-on options. I’m doing it.

Slot also wants to strengthen Liverpool’s midfield and attacking options, with Benfica midfielder Orkun Kokcu in mind.

The Turkish midfielder, worth €25 million, has struggled to settle in Portugal and could be on the move again this summer. And with Atalanta determined to demand a whopping €60m fee for Teun Kupmeiners, the former Fenebahce player, with 26 caps, appears to be an ideal alternative.

The PSV star also wanted a huge contract

And finally, Slot is reportedly keen on signing PSV Eindhoven winger Johan Bakayoko.

Liverpool officials see the Belgian as a long-term replacement for Mo Salah, and he certainly has the numbers to back it up, with 28 goals and assists this season.

Liverpool have planned an investment of almost €50m to sign the 21-year-old, who is expected to make a big impact at Euro 2024 this summer, according to journalist Sacha Tavolieri.

The signing of all four players will set Liverpool back a combined €150m (£128.2m) and will help the Merseysiders close the gap on Arsenal and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League next season. wish.
