Second Serbian On The Way
After signing Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic from Red Star Belgrade last week, Liverpool are reportedly heading over the road to Partizan Belgrade to tie up a deal for exciting 19-year-old winger Andrija Zivkovic.
Unlike Grujic who returned to Red Star on loan, Zivkovic is ready to leave Partizan straight away as his contract runs out in the summer, and reports in his homeland suggest that Liverpool have muscled in ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea to tie up a cut-price deal for his services.
Meanwhile, the Reds are also keen to bolster their dwindling defensive ranks by bringing in defender Steven Caulker on loan from QPR.

Better Call Saul
Manchester United apparently need more solid, defensively minded midfielders, and that means that Louis van Gaal is looking at Atletico Madrid youngster Saul Niguez.
Saul is one of the most highly-rated young midfielders in Spain, and Van Gaal believes he can snap him up for around £18m, which will probably please whoever is in charge at Old Trafford next season.

Gunner Get Nolito?
And staying in Spain, Arsenal are reportedly closing in on the Celta Vigo forward Nolito for an oddly specific sum of £13.4m.
The 29-year-old has broken into the Spain squad this season and was believed to be a target for his former club Barcelona, but he – quite wisely – thinks he’ll get more game-time at the Emirates Stadium.
