What?

According to the report, Tottenham Hotspur have made a bid to sign Diaz this month.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with the 24-year-old in recent weeks, with there being conflicting reports over whether the Reds are actually interested.

This fresh report claims that Spurs have lodged a 60million euro (£50m) bid for Diaz, which is short of his 80million euro (£67m) release clause.

It has also been claimed that Porto swiftly rejected the offer from Spurs, with Porto expected to turn down anything below Diaz's release clause valuation.

Liverpool have been linked with Bissouma ever since last summer, as have Arsenal and Manchester United.

Aston Villa and Newcastle are two of the latest clubs linked with Bissouma in recent days.

The report states that Brighton could be willing to sell Bissouma this month, but only if their valuation of £50million is met.

Who?

Randal Kolo Muani, Nantes striker.

According to the report, Liverpool face competition from Real Madrid for the signing of Muani.

The Reds were initially linked with the 23-year-old last week, with his performances this season attracting interest from across Europe.

Other clubs credited with an interest in Muani include Serie A giants AC Milan and Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt.

The report adds that Real will not make a move to sign Muani until the summer, when his contract with Nantes is currently set to expire and he would be available on a free transfer.
