All the latest Liverpool transfer rumours, with updates on moves for Nick Pope, Xherdan Shaqiri and Jasper Cillessen.

Liverpool are set to bid £15m for Burnley and England goalkeeper Nick Pope, reports The Sun on Sunday.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is understood to want competition for the No 1 jersey at Anfield due to Loris Karius’ horrendous Champions League final performance and Simon Mignolet’s lack of form.

Pope has two years left on his contract at Turf Moor as is viewed as a financially viable alternative to Roma’s Alisson.

Could Liverpool be looking to bring in two goalkeepers this summer? Well, according to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have drawn up a shortlist of replacements for Jasper Cillessen.

Barca do not want to sell Cillessen, who has been linked with Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Napoli, but they will cash in on the Dutch goalkeeper if they receive a lucrative offer for him this summer.

The La Liga champions are keeping tabs on a number of goalkeepers and their preferred choice to replace Cillessen, if the former Ajax man leaves, is Wolfsburg’s Koen Casteels.

Other goalkeepers they are monitoring include Cologne’s Timo Horn and Werder Bremen’s Jiri Pavlenka.

Xherdan Shaqiri insists he will not discuss his future until his participation at this summer’s World Cup in Russia has concluded.
