Liverpool set to be rebuffed by another player

Liverpool’s plans for the summer transfer window are set to suffer yet another major setback after French newspapers reported that Lille defender, Simon Kjaer is set to say no to a move to Merseyside in a bid to earn a lucrative deal with Turkish giants, Fenerbahce.

The Reds have been following the Lille OSC defender for a few months now and were confident of acquiring his services. However, after seeing the club struggle last season, the Denmark international is much more keen on a move to Fenerbahce where he will have the chance to contest for domestic titles and also a chance to play in Europe by next season.

This is the second time that a player has rebuffed Liverpool this season with Brazil international, Roberto Firmino also reportedly rejecting a chance to play in Anfield in favour of a move to Manchester United.

And with the club still unable to sign a major player so far this summer, the task gets even more complicated for Brendan Rodgers who has a major rebuilding job to do.
