Happy Monday to you all as we are back once again to begin the week recapping some of the biggest news headlines from over the weekend for Liverpool Football Club.

The transfer rumor mill is in overdrive at the moment while a talented youngster has made strong progress from a serious injury. A long-time defender is also leaving the club this summer. Let's take a look at some of the biggest news headlines to start the week.

Ben Doak fit and has a strong chance for the Euros

The 18-year old saw his season cut short in late 2023 as the result of a torn meniscus in his knee. He was on the verge of really seeing his Reds career take off as he was being given some first team opportunities.

As it were, Doak has made a fine recovery and has been training for the last several weeks. He was a surprise inclusion in Scotland's provisional squad for the Euros this summer which shows how aware coaches are of his sublime talent.

It is looking very likely that he will make the trip to Germany, but the two upcoming friendlies with Gibraltar and Finland will be key for him to shake off some rust and show what he can offer.

He might not play a starring role this summer, but the fact that he is able to participate will have Reds fans excited for the coming season.

Defender Adam Lewis leaves after 19 seasons with Reds

This might come to a shock to a lot of people to hear the name Adam Lewis in conjunction with being connected to Liverpool for nearly two decades.

Lewis, a Scouser in his own right, joined the Reds as a U6 player and has been a part of their Academy setup for the next 19 years. Now 24, his contract will be expiring this summer and there are no indications that Liverpool will be giving him a new one.

He has spent the last two seasons on loan playing for Newport County in League Two. He's also had stints with Amiens SC, Livingston FC and Plymouth in addition to several runouts with the Liverpool U21's side.

For his part, Lewis has made his intentions clear going forward. He spoke to BBC Sport about his future; "I love Newport, I've had chats with the gaffer and the club but I'll always have my options open, I'd love to stay here, I would, but that's something I've got to speak to the gaffer and the club about."

Khephren Thuram could be had from OM Nice at huge discount

The Reds have been linked to almost everyone under the sun in recent weeks but this is a report that could hold some merit to it.


According to TuttoJuve, Thuram is available for a mere €15-€20 million this summer. The numbers being quoted last summer when the Reds were interested were double that amount.

This is a move that seems extremely feasible and makes logical sense for the Reds to pursue as Thuram is still young and plays a dynamic game from the midfield. He was one of the the leading assets in Nice securing Europa League football this past season.

If the costs are legitimate, it seems like a no-brainer move for Michael Edwards and his team.
