Liverpool eye ex-Arsenal defender

Mon, 01/25/2021 - 10:26

Liverpool have reportedly made contact with Sokratis Papastathopoulos as they look to address their long-standing weakness at centre-back.

Sokratis, 32, only left Arsenal last week as he agreed to terminate his contract at the Emirates after two-and-a-half seasons.

Meanwhile, Liverpool remain hugely depleted at centre-back following the serious knee injuries suffered by first-choice pairing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

Liverpool 'have made contact with former Arsenal defender Sokratis

Mon, 01/25/2021 - 09:38

Liverpool have reached out to former Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos as they step up their search for defensive reinforcements, according to reports.

Jurgen Klopp's side have been ravaged by injury this season - particularly in defence - with key centre-back Virgil van Dijk a long-term absentee while Joe Gomez and Joel Matip have also been out for some time.

Klopp has previously made no secrets of his desire for a new defender and the club have now acted by making first contact with Greek international Sokratis, as reported by the Athletic.

Liverpool and Man Utd to go head-to-head in Upamecano transfer chase

Sun, 01/24/2021 - 09:40

Liverpool and Manchester United are reportedly set to 'go head-to-head' for the signing of RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, with a host of European clubs also watching the in-demand Frenchman.

Klopp is an admirer of Upamecano and sees the 22-year-old as 'a natural future partner for Van Dijk' at the heart of his defence but must match the swift moves made by United, according to the Mirror.

Upamecano has a £38million release clause inserted into his contract with Leizpig, which officially comes into play at the end of the current campaign.

Wed, 01/20/2021 - 09:38

Liverpool and Manchester City want to sign Adama Traore but Leeds United consider the Wolves winger out of their price range, according to reports.

The Spain international has previously attracted interest from clubs across Europe, including Barcelona, due to his dribbling abilities and lightening speed.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Liverpool, City and Leeds are the clubs most interested in making a move for the winger this month. However, Leeds Live claim the prospect of Traore moving to Elland Road is 'pure fantasy.'

Leipzig set to lose Upamecano in summer but won't sell in January

Thu, 01/14/2021 - 13:15

RB Leipzig are not considering selling their centre-back Dayot Upamecano this month even though he can leave in the summer for a cut-price €42m (£37.4m).

The 22-year-old Frenchman has a release clause that comes into effect in the summer but it is way below his market value so several clubs have asked Leipzig whether a January deal would be possible.

However, with Julian Nagelsmann’s team involved in the Bundesliga title race – they are two points behind the leaders, Bayern Munich, after Saturday’s defeat by Borussia Dortmund – and set to face Liverpool in the Champions League last 16, they are not considering selling their defensive linchpin halfway through the season.

Liverpool interest in Brighton defender

Thu, 01/14/2021 - 09:19

As the clamour for Liverpool to bring in a January centre-back goes on, the club themselves are taking a more considered view.

With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez expected to be out for the majority of the campaign and Joel Matip's ongoing inability to prove his fitness for any lengthy period, Jurgen Klopp's options have been stretched to breaking point.

One player who is of genuine interest, however, is Brighton's Ben White.

Liverpool make decision over David Alaba free transfer after talks

Thu, 01/14/2021 - 08:56

Liverpool have decided not to pursue a move for Bayern Munich contract rebel David Alaba despite speaking to the versatile defender’s representatives about a free transfer, according to reports.

The 28-year-old is out of contract with the Champions League holders this coming summer and has rejected fresh terms, with a move away from Bavaria now a virtual certainty. 

He is believed to be close to agreeing a pre-contract with Real Madrid – having been free to talk to foreign clubs from the start of the month – though Liverpool had also been interested.

Liverpool eyeing transfer move for Napoli star Nikola Maksimovic

Wed, 01/13/2021 - 08:46

Liverpool are scouring the transfer market for possible new additions at the back this month and are reportedly looking at Napoli defender Nikola Maksimovic to boost their title chances.

Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, widely regarded as one of the finest centre-backs in Europe, has long been linked with a move to Anfield but the 29-year-old’s eye-watering price tag continues to put off potential suitors. 

According to Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol, Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis told presenter Jim White that Koulibaly would not be going anywhere unless the Serie A outfit received an offer in excess of £100million.

Leipzig hint they're willing to listen to offers for Dayot Upamecano

Sun, 01/10/2021 - 10:45

RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has opened the door to a possible transfer for centre-back Dayot Upamecano after insisting that the Bundesliga club will always consider selling their assets for the right price.

The likes of Manchester United and Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for Frenchman Upamecano, who is considered one of Europe's top young players.

Julian Nagelsmann's side have previously seen their star names leave, with Timo Werner's £47.5 million switch to Chelsea the most high-profile example, and Upamecano could well be the next to head out the exit door.

The Reds are in the market for a central defender and while it's unlikely they will enter the January transfer window, Michael Edwards is continuing to plan for the summer.

Liverpool transfer stance on Sven Botman and Ozan Kabak revealed

Thu, 01/07/2021 - 09:35

Liverpool have made contact with representatives of Schalke defender Ozan Kabak, but are unlikely to pursue a deal and are minded to wait until the summer to reinforce their defence.

Liverpool, however, according to the Athletic, are unlikely to do business this month and cooled their interest in Kabak with Schalke valuing the player at €25m.

The 20-year-old Turkey international is now said to be likely to join Serie A giants AC Mian, while Liverpool have no interest in Lille centre-half Sven Botman who has been heavily linked with a move to the club this week.

Wed, 01/06/2021 - 16:17

RB Salzburg forward Patson Daka claims he will go on to emulate Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Liverpool stars Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

The Zambia international joined Salzburg's feeder club, Liefering, in 2017 after coming through the ranks at Nchanga Rangers and Kafue Celtic in his homeland.
