Liverpool are likely to break their transfer record for AS Roma attacker Mohammed Salah.
The sporting director of the Italian side Monchi confirmed the interest from the Merseyside club. Roma are hoping to get more £35 million for the player. The director admitted that the player could join Anfield this summer even though talks have been stalled over the transfer price for the 24-year old star.
Jurgen Klopp wants Salah to join the team ahead of the pre-season training in early July. He wants the new player in his attacking team as he searches for a top defender to help with the woes of last term.
“For Salah, there is an offer from an English club but the price will be set by Roma, not the buyers. As I’ve said before, Roma is not a supermarket. Roma is a team that will represent Italy in Europe. We came second in Serie A and out idea is to keep as good a team as possible,” Monchi claimed. ...continue reading LIVERPOOL TO BREAK RECORD FOR SALAH
Jurgen Klopp has opened up on the future of defender Mamadou Sakho, and he says that he does not want to be drawn on conclusions just yet.
The former Paris St Germain defender fell out of favour withKlopp in the summer. After having just played a key role in the club’s revival last season, he did not feature in the first half of the season. Sakho was frozen out of the action, but Klopp finally provided him with the escape option. The defender was allowed to leave the club on a loan deal until the end of the campaign, and Crystal Palace took full advantage of his presence.
Sam Allardyce was able to bring in Sakho on a loan deal until the end of the season, and this transfer has worked like a charm for the London outfit. After struggling with a relegation throughout the campaign, Crystal Palace have been able to secure four wins in the last five league matches – including a 3-0 win over Arsenal and a 2-1 win over Chelsea. ...continue reading Klopp Refuses to Be Drawn into Questions about Mamadou Sakho
Jurgen Klopp reckons that playing a day after Christmas or even on the New Year day is okay, but, just a couple of days after the New Year day again is a little harsh.
Public thinks from its own point of view that it’s their holiday time, they have to work from Monday to Friday every week, while the players have their work cut out only on the weekends or at worst, maybe on one of the other week days, but, that too very rarely
So, what’s the problem if the players have to work a little bit more for just one week, playing three games, from the 26th of December to the 3rd of January, even if that’s tough, they can have a number of non-working days in the other remaining weeks of the year. ...continue reading Jurgen Klopp dont want any game after New Year
With all the football clubs busy making the most of the transfer window, Liverpool is no different.
They are looking at Jonas Hector, who is a defender of the Koln team. It seems that he would be available for a fraction of the original asking price. Hector was said to be moving to Anfield and newspapers quoted that he was looking for a price tag of £25million. There were reports of interests being generated by the player by teams like Barcelona and Tottenham who are Premier League rival for Liverpool. It was reported that the offers were for £15m. Barca unveiled that they would be taking up Lucas Digne, who would be joining their camp from the Paris Saint Germain team
. The Spurs team seems to have locked down on Danny Rose. Hence Liverpool is now in a position to sign up Jonas Hector. The Reds have more good news as the offer would probably be for £17million which would be good enough for the player to be willing to join up.
