Liverpool Agree Personal Terms With Hungary Goalkeeper Adam Bogdan
Liverpool have agreed personal terms with goalkeeper Adam Bogdan who will join on a free transfer on July 1 when his Bolton contract expires.
The 27-year-old Hungary international’s arrival follows that of Manchester City midfielder James Milner and Burnley striker Danny Ings, who are also both out of contract at the end of the month.
Bogdan, who has been capped 19 times by his country, is part of their squad for this weekend’s European Qualifier in Finland.
A statement on the Bolton website said: “Everyone connected with Bolton Wanderers would like to thank Adam for his contributions during his time with the Whites and wish him well in his future career.”
Liverpool have yet to agree a fee with Burnley for the services of Ings with the Championship newcomers entitled to compensation as the striker is under the age of 24.
An initial bid believed to be in the region of £4m has been rejected with the Clarets understood to be looking for a figure closer to £10m for the England U21 international.
With the trio’s imminent arrival at Anfield, Liverpool are hopeful in-demand forward Raheem Sterling will be lining up alongside them in the Premier League next season.
Having rejected a bid of around £25m plus add-ons from Manchester City, they are bracing themselves for an improved offer from the Etihad after chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak promised “high-quality” signings this summer.
Manchester United were first to make their interest known, with Chelsea and Arsenal also sounding out the availability of the Londoner who has two years remaining on his current deal.
And Rafael Benitez, who took Sterling to Anfield from Queens Park Rangers as a 15-year-old, has also expressed his admiration for the England forward
