Seri back on the radar and Juve in for Emre Can — Liverpool Transfer Rumour Round-up

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 19:38

Transfer rumours continue to circle over possible ins and outs at Liverpool before the January transfer window shuts.


While most winter windows tend to be filled with outlandish claims and improbable links, many of those featuring the Reds this season seem to be valid, or at least a good fit.

Of course Liverpool won’t end up buying three or four more after Virgil van Dijk‘s arrival, but there’s still the possibility of another new addition to Jurgen Klopp‘s squad.

More likely still is an exit for one or two familiar faces, following on from Philippe Coutinho‘s sale and Marko Grujic‘s exit on loan.

Here is a complete round-up of the latest rumours concerning the Anfield corridors…

Juve confirm approach for Emre

It has been on the cards for weeks, but now it’s confirmed—Emre Can has been approached by Juventus over a summer move.

At present there’s no agreement—Emre himself alluded to as much—but the Turin giants have clearly earmarked him as a key target.

Able to discuss terms freely now over a summer move, Can will doubtless be on the radars of several big clubs thanks to his soon-to-be ended contract.

The German international is, however, still open to the possibility of signing a new contract and extending his stay at Liverpool.

Continual progression, a key role in the team and a strong finish to the campaign could be vital to keeping him beyond summer 2018.

Sturridge tipped for move to Europe

Sky Sports report Sevilla have been in touch with the Reds over a loan move for Daniel Sturridge.

However, no official bid has yet been made and Liverpool are thought to want a permanent move which meets their demands.

Previous rumours have put those demands at around the £30 million mark, while Sturridge’s wages have also been cited as prohibitive for some clubs.

Inter Milan are credited with an interest again elsewhere, as they have been in recent weeks, but Sevilla may make more sense for Sturridge, who wants game time to secure a World Cup spot.

The Spanish side have rotated between Wissam Ben Yedder and Luis Muriel up front this term, but they have netted just five and three goals in La Liga respectively.

It seems a more realistic battle for Sturridge to find a starting role than by heading to Inter, where he would be up against 18-goal Mauro Icardi.

Reds in a four-way battle for Seri

Much of summer 2017 centred around would-be moves by various clubs for Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri.

Barcelona had the strongest rumoured interest, though the Reds and other sides were also in the mix—only for the Ivory Coast international to remain in Ligue 1.

Now with just 18 months left on his deal and a €40 million release clause in place, he’s back on clubs’ radars.

The Mirror report Liverpool in a Premier League-wide battle, up against Man United, Man City and Chelsea to snare his signature.

While the suggestion is that the quartet will be in for Seri in the summer, that sort of figure—around £35 million—would barely register for most of those teams if they opted to move right now.

It’s a drop in the ocean compared to the fee received for Coutinho, or the potential money being spent on Alexis Sanchez by the Manchester clubs.

So it’s not entirely inconceivable that, if genuine, the interest could be brought forward by the Reds—particularly after not being able to bring in Naby Keita earlier than planned.

Goretzka remaining in Bundesliga

One of the potential replacements for if Emre Can departed on a free transfer, Leon Goretzka shares similarities with the Reds’ No. 23 and his present situation.

He’s a German central midfielder, out of contract in the summer…and able to discuss terms now with new clubs.

Liverpool had been credited with an interest and made their feelings known to the Schalke man.

But Goretzka’s camp didn’t offer too much in the way of encouragement, report the Echo.

Instead, the Anfield club believe he’s likely to remain in the German top flight, making the switch instead to the league’s most powerful club, Bayern Munich.

It would follow a familiar pattern in the league where the best homegrown players are snapped up by Bayern, strengthening their own team and damaging their rivals at the same time.

Mario Gotze, Mats Hummels, Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy have travelled that path of late and Liverpool look set to miss out as the trend continues.

Klopp wants to keep Woodburn around

Young forward Ben Woodburn had been tipped for a loan move for the remainder of the season after playing just once this term for the seniors.

Sunderland was the most likely destination after Chris Coleman, his former boss with the Wales national team setup, took over at the Wearsiders.

But Sky Sports report that the move is now off.

Speculation elsewhere has suggested Jurgen Klopp has personally put an end to the possibility of Woodburn leaving, following the sale of Philippe Coutinho.

If the above Sturridge rumours are true, of course, it stands to reason that the boss wants another attacking option available to him.

For now, Woodburn remains a Liverpool player, but he will certainly hope for more action in the second half of the season.

Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk have returned to Liverpool training ahead of their clash with Swansea on Monday night, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Van Dijk, who missed Sunday's 4-3 win over Manchester City with a tight hamstring, could be in line to make his first Premier League appearance for Liverpool since his £75m transfer from Southampton.

Henderson has been sidelined from first-team action for a month after suffering a hamstring injury in the Reds' 3-3 draw with Arsenal on December 22.

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side can continue their momentum after ending Manchester City's 22-game unbeaten start to the season with a win at Swansea.

Van Dijk will be hoping to build on his strong start to life at Anfield, after he scored a late winner in the Merseyside derby against Everton to ensure Liverpool progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Alberto Moreno was also present at training, the former Sevilla full-back has been out injured since December, however Andy Robertson has laid down his claim to Klopp with a string of impressive performances in recent weeks.

Premier League questions

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 18:09

Will Paul Pogba continue his fine form? We look at this weekend's key questionsWill Paul Pogba continue his fine form? We look at this weekend's key questions Will Paul Pogba continue his fine form? We look at this weekend's key questions

Will Arsenal and Man City bounce back from defeats? Will Paul Pogba continue his fine form? And will Paul Lambert get off to a winning start?

Brighton host Chelsea on Sky Sports Premier League at 12.30pm on Saturday, while Tottenham's trip to Southampton is on the same channel on Super Sunday at 4pm.

On Monday Night Football, we have Swansea v Liverpool from the Liberty Stadium at 8pm on Sky Sports Premier League.

Will Batshuayi step up to the plate for Chelsea? (Brighton v Chelsea, Saturday 12.30pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League)

Michy Batshuayi will have a good chance to fill the shoes of suspended and out-of-form striker Alvaro Morata in Chelsea's visit to Brighton, live on Sky Sports Premier League on Saturday.

Michy Batshuayi could replace Alvaro Morata for Chelsea on SaturdayMichy Batshuayi could replace Alvaro Morata for Chelsea on Saturday Michy Batshuayi could replace Alvaro Morata for Chelsea on Saturday

Chelsea are on a winless run of four in all competitions and have scored just once in those games, against Norwich in the FA Cup.

Brighton may be fancying their chances against a Chelsea side that looks short on confidence of late, however they themselves have recorded just 17 goals in the league this season, with only bottom-of-the-table Swansea scoring fewer.

Kane to pile more misery on struggling Saints? (Southampton v Tottenham, Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League 4pm)

Premier League top-scorer Harry Kane will look to add to his 20-goal tally this season as Tottenham travel to Southampton on Super Sunday.

So'ton vs Tottenham

January 21, 2018, 3:30pm

Kane scored another two goals last week in the impressive 4-0 win against Everton, and also recorded a hat-trick against the Saints on Boxing Day, which saw him set a new record for the most top flight goals scored in a calendar year (39 goals).

Tottenham 4-0 Everton Tottenham 4-0 Everton

Mauricio Pellegrino's side were unlucky not to take all three points last week against Watford, and will be desperate to overturn a run of 10 games without a win in the league - which has seen them slip to just one point above the drop zone.

Will struggling Swansea handle Liverpool's in-form attack? (Swansea v Liverpool, Monday Night Football, live on Sky Sports Premier League, 8pm)

Liverpool head into this encounter on the back of ending Manchester City's unbeaten start to the season with an impressive attacking display at Anfield.

Swansea vs Liverpool

January 22, 2018, 7:00pm

Live on

Liverpool's front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah scored three more goals to take their combined tally to 50 in all competitions this season.

Liverpool 5-0 Swansea Liverpool 5-0 Swansea

Strugglers Swansea returned to the foot the table after West Brom's win against Brighton so will be keen to claim an unlikely win on Monday Night Football at the Liberty Stadium.

Liverpool hit five with no return in the reverse fixture of this on Boxing Day, so Swansea will be determined to seek revenge under new boss Carlos Carvalhal.

Arsenal to get back to winning ways? (Arsenal v Crystal Palace, Saturday 3pm)

Arsenal head into Saturday's London derby with in-form Crystal Palace in urgent need of a win following a poor recent run of form.

Arsene Wenger's side have slipped to sixth in the Premier League, and eight points adrift of the fourth and final Champions League berth, after failing to win any of their last five matches in all competitions.

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal host Crystal Palace on SaturdayArsene Wenger's Arsenal host Crystal Palace on Saturday Arsene Wenger's Arsenal host Crystal Palace on Saturday

In fact, the Gunners' last victory came against Palace at Selhurst Park on December 28, while their previously dominant home form has also disappeared.

After a run of 12 consecutive league wins at the Emirates, Arsenal have now won just one of their last four in north London, meaning they can afford no more slip-ups against the Eagles.

Will Pogba continue his recent good form? (Burnley v Man Utd, Saturday 3pm)

Paul Pogba will be relishing Manchester United's trip to Burnley on Saturday afternoon having been in eye-catching form since his return from suspension.

Pogba's two assists in the Monday Night Football clash with Stoke City took his tally for the season to nine in just 13 Premier League games, with no player having recorded more than the Frenchman, who also managed two more in United's previous fixture at Everton.

Man Utd 3-0 Stoke Man Utd 3-0 Stoke

At Turf Moor this weekend, Burnley - who themselves have not won any of their last seven contests in all competitions - will need to pay close attention to a player who has been directly involved in 14 goals in his last 14 top-flight encounters (four goals, 10 assists).

Will the Baggies make it back-to-back wins? (Everton v West Brom, Saturday 3pm)

West Brom ended their 20-game winless run in the Premier League with a much-needed 2-0 home victory over Brighton last time out.

Alan Pardew's side remain deep in trouble though ahead of their trip to Merseyside to take on Everton on Saturday afternoon, with the Baggies 19th in the table and two points from safety.

So what better time for West Brom to record back-to-back league victories for the first time since their opening two matches of the campaign against an out-of-sorts Everton team who have not won themselves since beating bottom-of-the-table Swansea City at Goodison Park on December 18.

Will Paul Lambert silence his critics with a win in his first game in charge? (Stoke v Huddersfield, Saturday 3pm)

Paul Lambert will be keen to get off to a good start as Stoke City boss with his side having won just one of their last eight Premier League games.

Lambert was seemingly the third-choice candidate behind Quique Sanchez Florez and Martin O'Neill for the hot-seat, which has left many Stoke fans underwhelmed by the appointment.

West Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League winsWest Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League wins West Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League wins

Huddersfield at home will surely be as good a chance as any prove those critics wrong in his first game; the Terriers themselves were turned over 4-1 last week by West Ham.

Watford to return to winning ways at Leicester? (Leicester v Watford, Saturday 3pm)

Watford will be looking to return to form against Leicester City, who were unlucky to not gain all three points from an impressive display away against Chelsea last time out in the league.

Watford's last win in the Premier League actually came against Leicester on Boxing Day, and they can consider themselves fortunate to escape with a point against struggling Southampton after a contentious last-minute equaliser.

Watford 2-2 Southampton Watford 2-2 Southampton

To have a chance of winning, Watford will surely have to keep a close eye on in-form winger Riyad Mahrez, who has been directly involved in a goal in five of his last six games in all competitions for Leicester City (two goals, four assists).

West Ham or Bournemouth to push themselves further away from the drop zone? (West Ham v Bournemouth, Saturday 3pm)

Both West Ham and Bournemouth will be looking to record back-to-back wins in the league after impressive victories against Huddersfield and Arsenal respectively.

West Ham have not recorded two league wins in a row since January last year, and will be buoyed by their recent upturn in form under Manager David Moyes.

Bournemouth, however, lost 3-0 at League One Wigan on Wednesday night in the FA Cup, but will look to pick up where they left off in the Premier League.

Both teams can move up to 10th with a win on Saturday and will want to further distance themselves from the drop zone.

Man City to bounce back with a win against Newcastle? (Man City v Newcastle, Saturday 5.30pm)

Table-topping Manchester City suffered their first defeat of the season in a thrilling 4-3 defeat against Liverpool on Super Sunday.

City have been dominant in the Premier League this season but were blown away by a stunning second-half display by Liverpool.

Liverpool 4-3 Man City Liverpool 4-3 Man City

Pep Guardiola will have a good chance to bounce back against Newcastle, who themselves could only manage a point against bottom club Swansea in their last game.

VAR to be used for Reds' FA Cup tie with West Brom

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 17:59

Anfield will see the use of a video assistant referee for the first time in its history when Liverpool take on West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup fourth round later this month.

The Football Association have announced VAR will be in place for the tie, which will be played on Saturday January 27.

It’ll be the first time the Reds have played a competitive fixture with the technology in operation.

Three previous FA Cup ties have used VAR so far this season, most recently on Tuesday evening when Kelechi Iheanacho became the first player in English football history to have a goal awarded following consultation with a video assistant referee in Leicester City’s third-round replay against Fleetwood Town.

VAR to be used for FA Cup 4th round clash against West Brom at Anfield

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 17:56

The FA have confirmed that a video assistant referee will be in place for Liverpool’s home FA Cup tie against West Brom on January 27.


It was originally a possibility for the Reds to feature in a third-round clash using VAR technology—but a Merseyside derby against Everton, as it turned out to be, was thought to be too high-profile a game for a testing ground.

Now the FA have confirmed on Thursday that VAR will be in use at Anfield for the fourth round instead.

It will be only the fourth time the technology will have been in use this term as England trial VAR in the FA Cup.

The visit of West Brom comes after the Reds’ next fixture, away to Swansea on Monday night, and will be shown live on BT Sport.

A midweek FA Cup replay between Chelsea and Norwich saw the use of VAR criticised after several high-profile refereeing decisions were not overturned.

Sevilla approach Liverpool over Daniel Sturridge loan move

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 17:33

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is a target for Sevilla, and the Spanish club have reportedly made contact with the Reds over a move.


Sturridge has been behind Roberto Firmino for a centre-forward spot this season, while even Dominic Solanke—still without a goal for the Reds—has been preferred at times.

The No. 15 has missed the last nine matches with injury and the Reds have not shown too many signs of missing him, roaring to a five-match win streak of late and scoring 15 goals in the process.

Inter Milan have previously been rumoured to want Sturridge for the remainder of the season, while Premier League clubs including West Ham have also been mentioned.

Now Sky Sports report Spanish side Sevilla want to take the England international on loan until the end of the campaign—though no official bid has been made yet.

Liverpool are thought to want a permanent move over a loan deal if Sturridge is to depart Anfield this month.

The striker has played only around 500 minutes this term, scoring three goals, the most recent of which came against Maribor on November 1.

It continues a downturn in fortunes for Sturridge, who had such an exciting and explosive start to his Liverpool career—but which could end in a disappointing fade-away.

The Reds could be left somewhat short in attack if he does indeed depart, following Philippe Coutinho‘s sale to Barcelona, but Sturridge wants more game time in the second half of the campaign to win himself a World Cup spot with England.

A permanent move might be best for all parties, but the Reds have yet to see any willing suitors come forward to match their demands.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson returns to training ahead of trip to Swansea

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 17:17

Jordan Henderson is back in training with the first team, with the Liverpool captain having been sidelined through injury since December 22.


The No. 14 has been absent from the midfield line since going off against Arsenal, missing four Premier League matches and the FA Cup win over Everton since then.

In his absence, the centre of the park has changed somewhat, with Philippe Coutinho being sold, Emre Can taking over as the regular No. 6 and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain moving in from a wing role to the centre on more than one occasion.

Now Jurgen Klopp will find his options boosted once more with the news that Henderson has returned to first-team training.

The Reds don’t play again until Monday evening, leaving another three days of training ground action for Henderson to prove his fitness and be involved.

He has completed 14 full 90-minute outings in the league this season, along with a further four in cup competitions, after suffering two years of regular injuries recently.

While Henderson may have a big battle on his hands now to regain his first-team berth immediately, with performances and results impressive in his absence, there will again come a time for Klopp to rotate heavily.

Liverpool remaining fighting on three fronts heading into the second half of the season and a fully fit Henderson could play a valuable tactical role.

While he has most frequently been used as the deepest midfielder in a three this term, Henderson could perform a similar role to that which Oxlade-Chamberlain has at times as the fluid midfield switches from a three to a four, drifting into the channels in-play.

Furthermore with Emre Can‘s future still unresolved, it’s vital Klopp has all his players fit and available and fully focused on completing a successful season—hopefully with Henderson lifting silverware at the end of it.

Liverpool reject loan approach for Ben Woodburn

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 16:27

Sunderland had been hoping to sign Ben Woodburn on loan for the season, but Liverpool have rejected the approach and will keep him at Anfield.


Woodburn burst onto the scene last term, scoring in the League Cup against Leeds and playing nine times for the senior team overall.

But this year has been more about developing in training and with the U-23s, with Woodburn seeing first-team action just once.

It has led to a surge in interest in the 18-year-old with Championship sides hoping to snare his services for the second half of 2017/18.

Sunderland were the front-runners, with Chris Coleman—previously Woodburn’s boss with the Wales national team—having taken over as manager at the Stadium of Light.

But Sky Sports now report the deal is off, with Woodburn set to stay at Anfield.

Further reports suggested Jurgen Klopp put a stop to the potential move, with the Reds boss concerned at a potential lack of cover for his senior side after the sale of Philippe Coutinho.

With the likes of Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge still featuring in the gossip columns, and Marko Grujic having gone out on loan, Woodburn could yet prove a valuable resource for the Reds.

He can feature as a second forward, a wide option or even as a No. 8 creative midfielder—all roles Coutinho took up this term prior to his departure to La Liga.

Despite just 45 minutes of senior action to his name this term, Woodburn was on the bench at Burnley recently and could also feature in the FA Cup against West Brom.

He has also captained the Reds in the UEFA Youth League, where they won five of the six group games.

Sevilla make Sturridge enquiry

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 16:26
By Sky Sports News

Last Updated: 18/01/18 1:53pm

Sevilla have made contact with Liverpool over a loan move for striker Daniel Sturridge, but are yet to make a formal offer, according to Sky sources.

Sturridge joined Liverpool from Chelsea in January 2013, but his spell on Merseyside has been blighted by a succession of injuries.

The 28-year-old has featured only nine times in the Premier League this season, with manager Jurgen Klopp preferring to play Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in attack.

Transfer Talk: Who leads Sanchez race?

Will Manchester United beat Chelsea to the signing of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez? The Transfer Talk panel discuss.

Sky in Italy understands Inter Milan are also interested in signing Sturridge, who has 18 months remaining on his current deal at Anfield.

Klopp previously stated that Sturridge would need to put aside his concerns over a lack of first-team action for the good of the club.

"I can imagine a player with his quality is not happy that he is not starting all the time, but that's all," said Klopp.

"The situation with the player is completely OK. At this moment we are in November and need all our players - even if he feels a little different.

"There is around one-and-a-half months before the window opens and I don't think about things like this. There are so many games before then and I need all of them (his players)."
