Derby close to signing jordan Ibe
This has been a massive transfer window for Liverpool.
This summer saw Liverpool losing their talisman striker Luis Suarez to Barcelona. The Reds made full use of that money and went on to sign nine players in the summer.
And there could be few more transfers possible before the window shuts.
Not necessarily there has to be a new player coming in, but Liverpool might sell few players as well. Lucas Leiva is facing an uncertain future at the club and could be sold with Napoli thought to be showing an interest in the Brazilian.
Another transfer that is likely to happen in the next 24 hours is young Jordan Ibe moving to Derby on a season long loan.
Ibe is seen as one of the brightest stars of Liverpool’s academy and is seen as a long term prospect at the club.
Brendan Rodgers has spoken highly of him in several interviews this summer. He is a superb talent and all he needs now is regular games under his belt.
In the current Liverpool set up, Ibe would face an impossible task to get into the first team, so, a loan move would be ideal for him.
According to John Percy of The Telegraph Derby County are closing in on him and the player is expected to be at the club in next 24 hours.
