What the papers say

Liverpool have fallen short of Norwich’s valuation of left back Jamal Lewis, with the Reds offering £10million but the Canaries expecting close to double that, reports the Daily Mail. The paper adds that Jurgen Klopp’s side could add youngster Yasser Larouci as a makeweight in their next offer.

Meanwhile, another relegated club are looking to keep hold of their talent with Bournemouth turning down a deal for Aaron Ramsdale, the Mail says. The Cherries want around £25million for their goalkeeper, with Sheffield United offering £12million.

Eric Garcia is looking to make a move away from the Etihad but Manchester City will only let the defender go to Barcelona for a fee in the area of £30million, says the Daily Mirror.
