Liverpool &#039;handed Nabil Fekir transfer deadline by Lyon&#039;

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 17/07/2018 - 13:15

Liverpool have reportedly been informed they have until the end of the month to reignite interest in France World Cup winner Nabil Fekir.

A report in French newspaper L'Equipe claimed on Tuesday that Lyon want the player's future sorted before August as they look to plan for the new season.

Jurgen Klopp is keen to sign an attacking midfielder this summer with Fekir having been scouted extensively last season.

Following the failed deal, Fekir linked up with the France squad for the World Cup and appeared as substitute in their 4-2 win over Croatia in the final in Moscow on Sunday.

Speaking earlier this week, Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas believes there's a chance Fekir will still end up at Liverpool this summer, but would be more than happy for the 24-year-old to stay at his hometown club.

Alisson and his agent have Liverpool fans excited with latest update

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 17/07/2018 - 12:03

Alisson Becker is expected to hold talks with Roma on Tuesday over his future – with speculation intensifying over an imminent bid from Liverpool.

Reports in Italy claim the Brazil international will have discussions with the Serie A side after returning from a break following World Cup duty.

His agent Ze Maria Neis, who looks after the goalkeeper as part of his Neis World Sports agency, is believed ready to speak to Roma and explain his client wants to leave.

While Roma have yet to receive a concrete offer for the player, it's suggested they are braced for an imminent offer with Liverpool and Chelsea most strongly touted.

And there have been signs pointing to an imminent departure for Alisson, who has removed Roma from his Instagram bio.

That follows a move where Ze Maria Neis liked a photoshopped imagea of Alisson wearing a Liverpool shirt on Instagram.

For their part, Liverpool had been monitoring the Brazilian but believe prising him away from the Serie A side would prove difficult given the player's believed price tag in excess of 70million euros – although there are indications that, should Alisson press for a move, Roma may have to lower such demands.

Roma are wary of having their fingers burned after last year selling Mohamed Salah to Liverpool for what now appears a cut-price £36.9m.

There has been no contact with Roma and as yet no change in the Reds' stance from earlier this year when they informed Alisson's representatives not to expect a bid this summer.

Tuesday&#039;s Liverpool transfer rumours

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Tue, 17/07/2018 - 11:00

Last Updated: 17/07/18 9:09am

Could Lyon's Nabil Fekir be joining Liverpool after all? Could Lyon's Nabil Fekir be joining Liverpool after all? Could Lyon's Nabil Fekir be joining Liverpool after all?

Jurgen Klopp's side may reignite their interest in a World Cup winner as we round up the latest transfer rumours on Tuesday, July 17.

Nabil Fekir's on-off move from Lyon to Liverpool could be back on, according to reports in the Metro.

The France international playmaker was on the verge of joining the Reds prior to this summer's World Cup, only for the transfer to collapse at the last minute.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports News reported in June that Danny Ings would be leaving Liverpool this summer in order to pursue first-team football.

However, so far there has not been a move for the striker, who had been linked with Southampton, only for the Daily Echo to now suggest that the deal for the player will not go through.

Elsewhere, Liverpool defenders Joel Matip and Joe Gomez may line up alongside Virgil van Dijk in the heart of the club's back four.

And that is because Croatia centre-back Dejan Lovren is set to be given an extended rest period following his country's run all the way to the World Cup final.

Experience, game time & highlights: How every Liverpool player fared at the 2018 World Cup

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 16/07/2018 - 21:28

Eight Liverpool players went to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and half of them stayed there until the end of the tournament.


The Reds contingent did themselves and their club proud, whether they were regular starters or playing a supporting role at international level.

Eight of Jurgen Klopp‘s squad from last season were selected, while a ninth has recently joined who was in Russia—Switzerland’s Xherdan Shaqiri.

Aside from being extremely entertaining to watch for fans, the World Cup is a pinnacle of sporting achievement which the players themselves can be justifiably delighted with being a part of.

Here we look back at the past four weeks and lay out exactly who achieved what in Russia, starting with those who exited earliest first.

Mohamed Salah, Egypt

Stage reached: Group stage, 4th
Appearances: 2
Total World Cup minutes: 180
Best moment: Scoring his nation’s first goal from open play since 1930

Salah was always facing a race against time to be fit for the finals, after his Champions League final-ending shoulder injury.

He eventually sat out the first match and Egypt conceded a costly late goal; Salah returned and scored twice in two games but couldn’t inspire his team to an historic win.

Some off-field issues also clouded his time in Russia and perhaps it wasn’t quite as special in the end for the Egyptian King as it might have been.

Marko Grujic, Serbia

Stage reached: Group stage, 3rd
Appearances: 0
Total World Cup minutes: 0
Best moment: Being named in the squad

It was a watching brief for Grujic, who was a surprise call-up to the 23 in the first place.

No doubt the experience will have done him the world of good in being part of the squad and having the excitement build—but he’ll be frustrated to not have featured.

Serbia could have gone through but a costly defeat to Switzerland was the defining match. More success at international level is no doubt ahead for Grujic in future.

Sadio Mane, Senegal

Stage reached: Group stage, 3rd
Appearances: 3
Total World Cup minutes: 270
Best moment: Skippering his nation at the finals

Mane led his Senegal team into a very open and exciting Group H, and they were headed to the last 16 until the final minutes of the third game.

Playing both as a hard-working wide man and a playmaker behind a striker, Mane was key for his team and his early performances were impressive.

He perhaps didn’t quite hit the heights he’s capable of in the final group game as Senegal crashed out, but this was still a decent showing in Russia from the forward.

Xherdan Shaqiri

Stage reached: Last 16
Appearances: 4
Total World Cup minutes: 351
Best moment: Scoring a brilliant late winner in a crucial match

He wasn’t a Red heading into the tournament, but he certainly is afterward.

Shaqiri was a key figure for the Swiss as they held Brazil to a draw, then produced a massive turnaround against Grujic’s Serbia.

From a goal down, Shaqiri dribbled late on in the match and produced a cool, composed finish to win the game 2-1 and all but seal passage to the last 16.

Another tournament where his importance to the national team was highlighted.

Roberto Firmino, Brazil

Stage reached: Quarter-finals
Appearances: 4
Total World Cup minutes: 82
Best moment: Scoring moments after coming on in the last 16

One of the great mysteries of the 2018 World Cup will be why Brazil boss Tite continually went with Gabriel Jesus up front instead of Firmino.

The Reds’ No. 9 was continually more impressive when coming on for the ineffective Man City forward, and more than once was a catalyst for Brazil to find the right result.

He scored against Mexico to wrap up progression to the last eight, but didn’t earn the start his performances deserved.

Simon Mignolet, Belgium

Stage reached: Semi-finals, 3rd
Appearances: 0
Total World Cup minutes: 0
Best moment: Bronze medal

Simon Mignolet went as Belgium’s backup goalkeeper, and stayed on the bench throughout.

His team-mate Thibaut Courtois picked up the Golden Glove award, which highlights the challenge ahead of Mignolet for game time.

There’s no telling what role he played in the dressing room of course and presumably he was a supportive squad member, but there’ll be perhaps a tinge of regret for the stopper that he wasn’t able to feature at the finals.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, England

Stage reached: Semi-finals, 4th
Appearances: 1
Total World Cup minutes: 79
Best moment: Appearing at the World Cup at 19

Having impressed enough last term to earn a call-up for the finals despite being uncapped, it wasn’t quite the fairytale end to the season many might have expected.

Keiran Trippier was England’s wing-back and he impressed, keeping Trent on the bench throughout—other than the final group stage match against Belgium.

There, the teenager showed flashes of ability in his crossing and good work on the ball, but the tempo of the game and an entire team being switched around prevented any real quality in the performance overall.

What an experience for him, though, learning and watching the seasoned pros and being caught up in the hype and the excitement.

It won’t be the last major tournament he plays at, that’s for sure.

Jordan Henderson, England

Stage reached: Semi-finals, 3rd
Appearances: 5
Total World Cup minutes: 482
Best moment: Being widely recognised as one of England’s best performers

He’s had to do things the hard way, has Henderson, but this tournament perhaps opened the eyes of some non-Liverpool fans as to why he is so important to England.

When he was absent, the midfield was easily cut through and lacked a presence; when he played, his passing, tackling and leadership were all evident.

A very fine tournament from the Reds’ captain indeed, who even wore the England armband for a brief period—no doubt a proud moment at a World Cup finals.

Dejan Lovren, Croatia

Stage reached: Final, runner-up
Appearances: 7
Total World Cup minutes: 651
Best moment: Playing in a World Cup final!

Forget for a moment whether you love or loathe Dejan Lovren, he is to be applauded for playing a key role for his national team in arguably their most proud footballing moment.

An ever-present other than the dead-rubber third group game, when he came on as sub, Lovren was the centre-back of choice for Croatia and showed every side of his game in Russia.

Mistakes were present, but so too was his infallible self-belief, his penchant for big tackles and clearances and a whole lot of determination.

Lovren did what comparatively few other footballers will ever do: he reached, and played, in a World Cup final.
