Liverpool set to land first summer signing

HEAD NEWS - 5 hours 57 min ago

Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg is set to become Liverpool’s first signing of the summer and will undergo a medical on Merseyside this week.

The 17-year-old, who made 15 Eredivisie appearances for PEC Zwolle last season, has been tracked by a number of top sides across Europe with Bayern Munich, Ajax and PSV all having been beaten to a deal by the Champions League winners.

Van den Berg, a Dutch U19 international, has been in London to finalise the deal and will travel north to Liverpool on Wednesday in order to undergo his medical.

The club are keen to wrap up the deal, thought to be €1.9million before add-ons, by the weekend.

The Anfield hierarchy believe Van den Berg has similar potential to that shown by Joe Gomez when they signed him from Charlton.

Liverpool turn down opportunity to sign Real Madrid midfielder

ThisIsAnfield.com - 11 hours 22 sec ago

Liverpool were offered the chance to sign Spanish holding midfielder Marcos Llorente—but turned down the deal before he switched Real Madrid for Atletico.


The 24-year-old, who is uncapped at senior international level, played back-up to Casemiro last season at the Santiago Bernabeu.

A season on the fringes only briefly saw him show his real qualities around December, before an untimely injury put paid to his run in the team, and ultimately to his Real Madrid career.

With Zinedine Zidane telling Llorente he wouldn’t be needed this season, a move had to be arranged, and Llorente’s uncle and agent told Spanish outlet Cadena SER that he contacted several clubs over his availability, with Liverpool a high-profile option.

The Reds, however, were not interested in making the move happen, with Jurgen Klopp completely at ease with his defensive midfield options.

“I contacted various clubs to tell them what had happened, about the conversation between Zidane and Marcos,” said Julio Llorente.

“One of those who were around was Liverpool, but the position of Marcos was covered and he wasn’t a priority.

“Atletico was perhaps the team which took the biggest steps and they convinced us. I think we made the right decision.”

The Reds, of course, spent £40 million just over one year ago to secure the services of one of the best defensive midfielders around: Fabinho.

After a reasonably slow start where he spent time on the sidelines, watching and learning, the Brazilian became one of Liverpool’s most important players through 2019.

Even aside from the No. 3, the Reds have played Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum in the deepest of three midfield roles, meaning there’s plenty of cover for Klopp.

Were more cover or options required, Klopp might have considered using Marko Grujic there—but with Llorente eventually switching Real for Atletico Madrid for around £35 million, it’s clear the Reds didn’t need to spend hugely in this position.

Even so, there are a couple of parallels to the transfer which are interesting to note from a Reds’ perspective.

Had he moved to Anfield, Llorente would have gone from being behind Brazil’s first-choice holding midfield, Casemiro, to behind the man hoping to take that position in the near future at international level, Fabinho.

Instead, a knock-on effect of moving to the Wanda Metropolitano—the last stadium Liverpool played at, of course—likely means that Atleti’s own midfielder, Rodri, will swap los rojiblancos for Man City.

In turn, the Spanish midfielder will be fighting for a spot alongside or instead of another Brazilian holding option, Fernandinho.

It’s nothing the Reds can do much about, and not signing Llorente was the right call to make, but strengthening title rivals as an indirect consequence is still an uneasy comparison to make.

“Won’t find a better No. 2” or “let him move on”? – Liverpool fans debate Simon Mignolet’s future

ThisIsAnfield.com - 11 hours 50 min ago

The future of Simon Mignolet’s Liverpool career remains uncertain, but do fans feel the club should be looking to sell or keep the Belgian stopper?


Much of Liverpool’s summer business has been kept under wraps, but the common consensus among fans was that the Reds would be in the market for a back-up left-back, a versatile forward and an understudy to Alisson.

The latter of which would come as a result of Mignolet leaving Anfield after six years in the pursuit of regular first-team football, after a season and a half on the substitutes’ bench.

The 31-year-old featured just twice across all competitions in 2018/19 but remained an ultimate professional throughout and was the teams’ biggest cheerleader across social media.

All signs had pointed to an imminent departure for the Belgian, but reports earlier in the week suggested that Liverpool “expect Mignolet to remain at the club next season” unless a permanent move emerged which would “excite” him and meet the Reds’ valuation.

It’s a position which contradicts the narrative throughout the backend of last season and has raised the question over what Liverpool’s stance on the matter should be.

Mignolet has often divided opinion over the course of his 204-game career at Liverpool, and while some would be happy to see him and the club part ways, there is also an argument that few other ‘keepers of his ability could serve as a back-up option.

This Is Anfield posed the question of if Liverpool should keep or sell Mignolet this summer to fans on Facebook and Twitter, and the results went only one way.

Of the 25,500 fans who voted on Facebook, 58 percent were in favour of Liverpool keeping hold of Mignolet for the 2019/20 season.

Many lauded his professionalism throughout the years and admitted that they would not feel aggrieved should he choose to leave, but concern remained over whether a suitable replacement could be found in that eventuality.

“Solid number two, great professional, definitely keep him as it’s a lot of effort to find as good a backup happy to sit on the bench all season.

“From a selfish point of view keep but if he wants to leave, I wouldn’t stop him,” Benjy Moss explained.

A view which was supported by Ed Turner, who wrote: “Up to him at end of the day but, personally, I think he has shown excellent professionalism in the last couple seasons as number two and that is not guaranteed with a new signing of similar age and quality.”

“I’d love to keep him but, for him, I’d love to see him between the sticks somewhere permanently. After his professionalism this season, he deserves it,” Shaun Lucas agreed.

“I would love to keep him but he deserves a place to play as a starter,” Tom Steer added. “He’s earned that.”

Adam Buckley was of similar mind but raised the point that any potential deal must suit both the club and player, writing: “He’s been a model pro the last season, treat him with respect and let him move on.

“Not on the cheap but don’t make it difficult for him. Also, his value will drop the longer he doesn’t play.”

Conversely, Paul Myler feels the time is right for Mignolet to leave, as he wrote: “Some people have short memories. Yes, his attitude has been brilliant but let’s not forget the reason we bought Alisson was because Mignolet and Karius are poor keepers who make far too many mistakes.

“If Alisson gets injured, I would not be confident with Mignolet in goal.”

A view echoed by Aaron Maguire, writing: “Being an ultimate professional and a good role model is one thing but how confident would you be if Allison picked up an injury and Mignolet was back in goal for an extended period?”

The outcome was all but identical on Twitter as of the 8,917 fans who voted, 59 percent held the view that the Belgian should remain in Jurgen Klopp‘s squad next season.

Like those on Facebook, the overwhelming feeling was that Liverpool should not stand in Mignolet’s way should he wish to leave but that he would remain a more than capable No. 2 should he stay.

“Better to keep,” @LiverpoolRage argued. “Reserve keeper only plays a few domestic cup games anyway.”

“Depends on what the lad himself wants. If he wants to move on, let him go and find a replacement. If he wants to stay as a number two, no problem with that,” @BrianDurand56 explained.

“If he wants to stay then keep him. It seems a bit pointless trying to actively sell him and pay agent fees etc. to bring in a replacement,” @mc_red23 agreed. “If he wants to leave, then respect his wishes and don’t hold out for anything ridiculous.”

“Won’t find a better number two. Can’t see him wanting to stay though, can get first-team football in another Premier League club,” @andytt87 wrote.

For @LFCZA the situation is reliant on the potential replacement, writing: “Depends on who they bring in.”

As Alisson is the undisputed No. 1 at Liverpool it is clear to see why results from the poll favour Mignolet staying as a keeper of his quality and character is ideal as a back-up option.

The caveat to that is that a lengthy injury or suspension for the Brazilian would see Mignolet thrown into the mix for an undetermined amount of time, and we all know why he was replaced in the first place.

It leaves Liverpool in an interesting position this summer as while tentative links have been made with Southampton‘s Alex McCarthy, nothing concrete has emerged and it could all come down to whether Mignolet is content with another season on the sidelines.

Autism Hour at Liverpool FC's Anfield store

LiverpoolFC.TV - 11 hours 54 min ago

Liverpool FC will take extra steps to make its Anfield store 'autism-friendly' for 60 minutes on the last Thursday of every month.

Between 4pm and 5pm, the store will lower its music and the stadium will cease all tannoy announcements to create a shopping environment that is more comfortable for those with autism.

Autism Hour is supported by more than 8,000 UK retailers and service providers, which allocate 60 minutes to provide autistic people and their families with a break from overwhelming noise and bright lights - the common barriers autistic people face when accessing shops and facilities.

LFC is committed to making Anfield stadium accessible to all. Last year, the club launched a sensory room in the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand, which has a variety of specialist equipment for those with autism or other sensory needs, helping them to experience football matches in a comfortable environment suitable for their needs.
