Deal Close: Liverpool offered big chance to seal transfer for 'excellent' €5m title winner

Red Bull Salzburg (Sadio Mane's old team) are planning to sign one of Liverpool's on-loan young players on a permanent deal this summer.

Andre Wisdom is currently on a season-long loan at Salzburg, and according to sporting director Christoph Freund:

“We will try everything to keep hold of Andre. He has been hugely important on and off the pitch."

RBS Coach Oscar Garcia added:

“I hope he [Wisdom] stays with us. He is very strong and calm on the ball."

Liverpool are reportedly willing to sell, and according to the Liverpool Echo:

"Salzburg have been told it will cost them 5 million Euros to make the arrangement permanent".

Wisdom is having a great season for Salzburg, and over the last few months, he's established himself as a first-team regular, with impressive results:

* Salzburg are currently 12 points clear at the top of the Austrian Bundesliga.

* Wisdom has featured in 11 of the club's last 14 games (9 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss).

* With Wisdom starting, Salzburg have kept 8 clean sheets in a row.

No wonder they want him to stay (!)

Wisdom signed a new 'long-term deal' in May 2016, and after signing the contract, he gushed:

"My future is definitely back at Liverpool because that is my dream".

That dream appears to be dead, but the consolation prize is that Wisdom will end the season with a league title, and the promise of Champions League football next season.
