Liverpool are big fans of £80m Premier League star, he’s ‘one to watch’ this summer

Image
Although Liverpool have more pressing matters to deal with right now, talk has started to ramp up over the summer transfer window. Before then, the Reds are still pushing to win all four trophies they’re competing in this season. There’s also the necessity to bring a new sporting director and manager to Anfield ahead of 2024/25. Nevertheless, that hasn’t stopped rumours flying around about who Liverpool could target in their first summer without Jurgen Klopp since 2015. One of the loudest links so far has been to Wolves forward Pedro Neto. And addressing such questions in a fan Q&A for The Athletic, journalist David Ornstein says it’s ‘no secret’ that Liverpool like Neto. “Neto is having a brilliant season and that naturally makes him one to watch in the next transfer window,” Ornstein explains. “First thing to say is there’s no guarantee he leaves Wolves. He’s under contract until 2027 and the club are on course for a much higher finish than they would have budgeted for, which str

Report: 24-year-old Liverpool player now set to come back and start the Carabao Cup final vs Chelsea

Jurgen Klopp does not have a lot of wiggle room with his Liverpool team ahead of Sunday’s Carabao Cup final. Having been able to call on just 14 senior players for Wednesday’s win over Luton Town, the Liverpool manager is being badly restricted by injuries. Nevertheless, there is still the possibility to bring some fresh legs in to face Chelsea at Wembley. Looking at the Reds team news ahead of the game today, the Liverpool ECHO report that Klopp is set to make at least one change to the XI that beat Luton. That is set to come at centre-back, where Jarell Quansah is ‘likely’ to make way for Ibrahima Konate. Konate was an unused substitute midweek, seemingly with the final in mind. He’ll reportedly be back in against the Blues. The ECHO suggest that Klopp could actually surprisingly make up to four more changes. The most likely would pertain to be Andy Robertson coming in at left-back, with the other possible switches said to be fitness related. It wasn’t really a surprise to see Konate

Liverpool could beat Man City to exciting $54m transfer who might be ideal Thiago successor

Liverpool should not be copying Chelsea too often when it comes to transfers, but there is one kind of deal that should be repeated — albeit for a much lesser fee. The Stamford Bridge side made history when it broke the record for the most expensive Ukrainian player ever, bringing in Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk. Now, it should be Liverpool's turn to shop in Ukraine in order to sign an exciting young talent ideal for Jürgen Klopp's midfield. Ukrainian football, despite the difficulties back home with an ongoing conflict against Russia, is still going strong, and more and more young talents are making a name for themselves at top European clubs. Mudryk is just one example among many, and while he has not shown it fully at Chelsea yet, his talent level remains clear. As the U21 European Championship last November proved, he is not the only one, with Ukraine qualifying for the semi-finals, beating Croatia and Romania en route, before being knocked out by Spain. On the bac

Liverpool closest club to "exquisite" transfer in first post-Klopp deal

Any transfer plan that Liverpool may have had ahead of this summer was likely thrown into doubt when Jurgen Klopp announced that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season. That said, the Reds are now starting to think about their next era and just who could come in to hand their new manager an instant boost. The focus has naturally been on Liverpool's managerial candidates, with Xabi Alonso at the forefront of those rumours following how he's impressed in Germany. The Spaniard's Bayer Leverkusen side sit top of the Bundesliga and unbeaten in all competitions so far this season, making him the reported top target to replace Klopp. Liverpool's Alonso rumours have come with links to the likes of Florian Wirtz and Piero Hincapie, who have both starred under the former Real Madrid midfielder this season. Alonso's 3-4-2-1 system would certainly shake things up at Anfield away from Klopp's classic 4-3-3 and potentially create the need for certain arrivals.

3 reasons why Xabi Alonso could pick Liverpool over Bayern Munich

Image
Xabi Alonso is now expected to have a choice between Liverpool and Bayern Munich this summer. Here's why he could pick the Reds. It appears that Xabi Alonso will have a big decision to make this summer. The Bayer Leverkusen boss is flying right now, with his team performing as one of the absolute best in the world. That has massive clubs interested in his services. What makes things particularly interesting is that Alonso reportedly has a career plan that sees him only really interested in moving to three clubs - Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Liverpool are in the market for a new manager, of course, with Jurgen Klopp stepping down at the end of the season. Alonso supposedly tops their shortlist of replacements. The Times now claims that Bayern Munich expect to move on from Thomas Tuchel this year. They also have Alonso as their primary target, creating a race for his services. Alonso gave himself limited options for his next club but he's still somehow set to face a

Report: Liverpool looking into signing Sheffield United player as Blades struggle to get contract talks finalised

Sheffield United could face a battle on their hands when it comes to keeping Oliver Arblaster, with Liverpool apparently keen on the midfielder. Arblaster has recently returned to the club and is now pushing himself back to full fitness in the hope of featuring between now and the end of the season. Indeed, Chris Wilder has said himself he is looking forward to working with Arblaster, after stopping a second loan spell being approved in January. However, there is also a worry at the club that Arblaster has yet to sign a new contract and according to Liverpool site Anfield Watch, the Reds are keeping an eye on the Blades youngster. It’s claimed that Arblaster is among the young players Liverpool have eyes on as potential signings as the club look to build beyond Jurgen Klopp’s exit in the summer. The Reds have given chances to a number of young players like Conor Bradley and Jarrell Quansah this season, while others such as Harvey Elliott have progressed into first-team regulars. Liverp

Report: Barcelona really want to sign £34m Liverpool player, they think he's their best option

As we slowly start to move towards the summer transfer window, rumours are swirling around Liverpool. From claims that Kylian Mbappe has explored a move to Anfield, to suggestions that Virgil van Dijk could leave. It’s set to be a busy time for the Reds after Jurgen Klopp leaves. Perhaps the most tedious of all those sagas is the discussion over Mohamed Salah’s future. Salah has been excellent again for Liverpool this season but the suggestions that it’s his last at the club haven’t gone away. Largely, that talk has centred on the possibility of the Egyptian moving to the Saudi Pro League. However, Mundo Deportivo today report that Salah is actually being looked at by Barcelona. The La Liga giants are said to be looking for a wide forward and have reportedly identified Liverpool’s No.11 as the absolute best option on either wing. However, as much as they love Mo, there’s a problem. Barcelona simply cannot afford to sign him. Instead, they are claimed to be more realistically looking at
