Welcome to the Liverpool.com daily Media Digest. From transfers to tweets, it can be hard to keep up with everything going on in the Anfield sphere. Credible, incredible and anything in between: we round it all up in one place here, taking a sideways look at the day’s media goings-on from around the world.
Adama Traoré plan
Liverpool could offer one of three players to Wolves in part exchange for Adama Traoréaccording to reports.
Divock Origi, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain or Nat Phillips could make their way to Molineux as part of a deal to sign the Spanish winger, with Jürgen Klopp supposedly keen to sign him to bolster his attacking options.
Player swaps are incredibly difficult to put together, though, in reality, while Traoré remains an inconsistent and frustrating player, albeit it one with plenty of talent still to be unlocked.
Frenkie de Jong interest
Liverpool might refresh their midfield with the capture of midfielder Frenkie de Jong, according to reports in Spain.
New manager Xavi is said to be a bigger fan of La Masia products Gavi and Nico Gonzalez than De Jong, paving a way for the Dutchman to move to England.
Man City are also interested in the 24-year-old, who signed for Barcelona for around £ 60m from Ajax two years ago.
£ 1.9bn deal agreed
The Premier League has agreed a £ 1.9bn deal with NBC in the US for them to show live games, with Liverpool set to benefit financially from the agreement.,
The league has grown massively in the States in terms of interest, with viewing figures having grown considerably, which FSG will no doubt be encouraged by.

Kylian Mbappé claim
Liverpool are reportedly preparing a massive contract offer worth € 30m a year (£ 480,000-a-week) to beat Real Madrid to the signing of PSG superstar Kylian Mbappé, in a slightly unbelievable and far-fetched suggestion.
Spanish publication Defensa Central report that Liverpool are planning to blow Real Madrid out of the picture by offering him a ‘bumper contract’.
It is further claimed that Liverpool could even push for the World Cup winner in the January transfer window, with PSG possibly set to sanction a sale to the Reds to stop Real Madrid from signing him.
That is because they were unhappy with how Real Madrid tried to sign him last summer and would prefer not to sell to the Spanish giants.

Make of that what you will … but it remains highly unlikely that Mbappé will be pitching up at Anfield.
‘Irresistible’ Dani Olmo contract offer
RB Leipzig forward Dani Olmo is a wanted man, and Liverpool are supposedly leading Barcelona in the chase to sign him up.
The Reds are said to be Barcelona’s ‘main competitor’ and with Klopp’s men ‘willing to offer him an almost irresistible contract’, making them ‘the favorites’.
This comes from El Nacional, who report that Olmo’s growing reputation in Europe means clubs are queuing up for him as the Spanish international continues its rise in the Bundesliga.
Olmo could make a lot of sense for Liverpool, but whether he could be signed at the right price makes to be seen.
