Klopp's update on Oxlade-Chamberlain's expected lay-off

LiverpoolFC.TV - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 19:56

Jürgen Klopp has revealed the expected length of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's injury lay-off and detailed the agreed approach taken to his rehabilitation by the club, player and manager.

The Liverpool midfielder is likely to miss the vast majority of the 2018-19 season and competitive game time before the end of the campaign would be a bonus.

Oxlade-Chamberlain sustained multiple ligament damage when attempting a tackle during the first half of the Champions League tie with AS Roma at Anfield in April.

The 24-year-old underwent surgery eight days after suffering the injury – his only operation – which was a complete success.

The estimated length of his lay-off was not revealed at the time at the request of Oxlade-Chamberlain, who did not want the news to distract from the Reds’ ongoing Champions League run and the excitement surrounding it.

His rehabilitation remains in line with the timeframe outlined following his surgery.

“It feels like now is an appropriate time to tell people that for Ox this coming season will be about focusing on recovery and rehab,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.

“We have known this from pretty much the day after he got the injury and after the successful surgery, we were sure of it. I hope everyone treats this information responsibly. There has been no change, no setback – it’s exactly on the schedule we expected and planned for. The new information is that we’re now giving more detail publicly.

“It is typical of Ox that he didn’t want the news to overshadow the end of the season and, to be quite honest, we thought we could wait and tell people at an appropriate time.

“His surgery – which he had on the day of our second leg in Roma – has been completely successful and his recovery has started superbly well.

“But the truth of the matter is that we are preparing this season knowing he will not be with us on the pitch for competitive matches for the majority of it. If we do see him back this season it will be a bonus.”

The decision to provide further detail on Oxlade-Chamberlain’s recovery at this time was made with a view to alleviating any unrealistic pressure on a return date for the No.21.

Klopp, the club and the player himself are in total agreement on ensuring his rehabilitation is right rather than rushed, with the future firmly in mind.

“It is so important – because of how valuable and important he is to what we are looking to do here in the coming seasons – that the focus is on doing this right and not rushed. Ox is completely on board with this approach,” added the manager.

“He is such an outstandingly good person and someone who even when not playing is integral to the heartbeat of Melwood.

“I cannot wait to have him back with us for matches, but we will wait for him and we will show the patience that is required to make sure he comes back ready to continue where he left off: as one of the most outstanding performers in European football in that moment.”

Liverpool complete deal for Alisson

LiverpoolFC.TV - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 18:36

Liverpool have completed the signing of Alisson Becker for a world-record fee of 75m Euros (£67m) subject to the Roma goalkeeper passing a medical, according to Sky in Italy.

The 25-year-old is scheduled to depart Rome within the hour and will undergo a medical with the Reds in the next few days.

Sky in Italy understands the Brazil international has already agreed personal terms and will sign a five-year deal at Anfield.

Alisson is set to become the most expensive goalkeeper in history, with Liverpool surpassing the £34.7m fee Manchester City paid for Ederson in 2017.

Alisson will become Jurgen Klopp's fourth signing of the summer, joining fellow new arrivals Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri at Anfield.

The Brazil international, who featured at the World Cup in Russia earlier this summer, made 49 appearances for Roma last season.

He was part of the side that suffered a 7-6 aggregate defeat to Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Harry Wilson: How Derby loan move happened

LiverpoolFC.TV - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 18:31

Harry Wilson is certain a loan spell with Derby County this season is the ideal next step in his career.

Having impressed with Hull City during the second half of last term, scoring seven goals in the Championship to help the Tigers ease any relegation fears, the Welshman attracted significant interest this summer.

Liverpool tied Wilson down to a new contract earlier this month before discussing another temporary departure to help the 21-year-old gather more experience.

A season-long loan move to Frank Lampard’s Derby was then confirmed on Tuesday.

“I was delighted to sign the new deal. To sign a new deal with a club as big as Liverpool was brilliant for me,” Wilson explained to RamsTV.

“I sat down with the right people and discussed what they felt would be best for me this season; we decided that a loan move would be.

“Liverpool always want the best for their players so between me, Liverpool and my agent, we decided to narrow it down to a few teams.

“Derby were one of them and come the end of it we decided this would definitely be the right place for me.”

Former England midfielder Lampard took charge of the Rams in May and will look to lead the club to promotion to the Premier League in 2018-19.

Wilson revealed his presence in the dugout was a contributing factor to the decision to join Derby. “That is a big attraction,” said the attacker.

“Seeing the career he had as a player, the things he has done in the game have been brilliant. I’m really looking forward to getting into training and learning a lot of things from him.”

Liverpool close in on Alisson after agreeing mega deal

HEAD NEWS - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 14:25

Liverpool have clinched an agreement worth around £66 million inclusive of add-ons with Roma for Alisson, which is a world record fee for a goalkeeper.

Talks had progressed well on Tuesday, with a resolution speedily reached after the Reds upped their initial offer allowing the 25-year-old to press ahead with the move.

Barring any late counter bids and twists, the Brazil international should sign a five-year contract with the Anfield side after undertaking his medical and agreeing personal terms, with those formalities potentially finalised by the end of the week.

Alisson, not short of interest in his services this summer, has been a long-term target for Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool made checks on him in January, but had already laid down the foundation for a deal last year.

The club’s endeavour to recruit him as well as the manager’s ambitious vision meant the Merseysiders stole a march on Chelsea, who are navigating Real Madrid’s pursuit of Thibaut Courtois.

The Blues are yet to submit an offer and it is understood that is a result of Alisson making clear his preference is Liverpool.

Roma would welcome an auction, but there are currently no indications that one will materialise.

The blockbuster fee almost doubles the British-record outlay for a goalkeeper, with Ederson having cost Manchester City £34.7m last summer.

It also eclipses the €52m Juventus parted with to sign Gianluigi Buffon from Parma in 2001 by €18m.

HEAD NEWS - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 14:11

Liverpool have agreed a deal worth £67 million with Roma for goalkeeper Allison as the Brazilian edges closer to Anfield.

It is now up to the 25-year-old to join Jurgen Klopp or wait to see if Chelsea match the Kop bid.

Liverpool have permission to meet the 25-year-old to discuss personal terms.

No medical is scheduled yet. Liverpool are awaiting the response of the Brazil international before pressing ahead with the world record deal for a goalkeeper.

They are aware of interest from other clubs, but only Liverpool have met Roma’s valuation at this stage.

Liverpool hope their long-term interest in the keeper – they first tried to sign him in January – will give them the upper hand should Chelsea decide to match the valuation.

Now it looks like he has his man, although Liverpool will want the formalities complete before declaring victory in pursuit of one of the most highly-rated goalkeepers in the world.

Liverpool agree fee to sign Alisson from Roma

HEAD NEWS - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 14:06

Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Alisson after agreeing a £66million fee with Roma for the Brazilian goalkeeper, Goal can confirm.

The Reds have been in intensive talks with the Serie A club this week, and now have permission to speak to the player about a move to Anfield.

The deal would make the 25-year-old the most expensive goalkeeper in history.

Alisson, it is understood, is open to the idea of a move to Merseyside, but Liverpool could face competition from Chelsea, who look set to lose their own goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, to Real Madrid.

Liverpool, though, are growing confident they can win the race, which would mean they have broken the world transfer record for both goalkeepers and defenders in the last seven months.
