Liverpool transfer news: Basel in talks to sign Liam Millar for £ 2million


What other clubs are interested?

Millar has also sparked interest from the New York Red Bulls, Odense, Blackpool and Charlton Athletic.

The Red Bulls had previously tried to sign him in January 2020 after returning to Liverpool after a loan at Kilmarnock.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Charlton where he scored three goals in 27 league appearances.

Who is Millar?

Toronto-born Millar joined Liverpool academy from Fulham in 2016 and served as the club’s Under-23 captain.

His lone senior appearance was against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup in February 2020.

He made eleven appearances for the Canadian national team.

Who else could leave Liverpool this summer?

Benfica want to sign Liverpool winger Harry Wilson this summer – but initial talks between the clubs have failed over the asking price of € 15million.

The 24-year-old scored seven goals and contributed 12 assists in 37 league appearances for Cardiff City last season. It was his fifth loan after previous stays in Crewe, Hull City, Derby County and Bournemouth.

Liverpool, meanwhile, expect Neco Williams to push for a decision after Euro 2020, with the club set to demand at least £ 10million for the Wales full-back.

Anfield officials understand the 20-year-old’s desire to play first-team football on a regular basis and will reluctantly sell the academy graduate if the right offer is made.
