Liverpool consider transfer for England stopper

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 19/06/2018 - 16:05

Liverpool have run background checks on Burnley’s Nick Pope as the Reds weigh up moving for the goalkeeper, according to reports.

Pope capped a breakout season for Burnley by clinching a spot in England’s World Cup squad as the Three Lions’ reserve stopper.

The 26-year-old stood in for the injured Tom Heaton at the start of last season, and went on to collect 12 clean sheets and help Burnley finish seventh in the Premier League.

Liverpool are on the hunt for a new goalkeeper this summer, but have been knocked back by their top targets.

Roma star Alisson and Atletico Madrid stopper Jan Oblak are out of Liverpool’s reach and Jurgen Klopp has been forced to redraw his target list.

The Mirror claim Pope now occupies a spot on that list and Liverpool have already run background checks on the Englishman.

A move to Liverpool would cap a remarkable year for Pope, and the Reds have been enquiring about his personality and mentality.

Liverpool have also been linked with Stoke’s Jack Butland and Lazio stopper Thomas Strakosha.

Burnley rate Pope at £18million, which would make the former Charlton goalkeeper the cheapest option on Klopp’s target list.

Liverpool have been put off by the asking prices for Alisson and Oblak, but are expected to sign a new goalkeeper this summer.

HEAD NEWS - Tue, 19/06/2018 - 13:48

Nabil Fekir's agent, Jean-Pierre Bernes, has suggested his client could yet join Liverpool this summer despite the breakdown of the Lyon captain’s £53m to Anfield.

While appearing on French television channel LCI on Monday night, Bernes playfully suggested that Fekir’s future has not been fully resolved.

“[Fekir] did not sign because it is not finished, the story,” he said, when asked about the collapse of the Liverpool transfer by presenter Patrick Chêne.

How Liverpool could seal shock Chelsea transfer raid

HEAD NEWS - Tue, 19/06/2018 - 13:09

Liverpool could in theory be realistic contenders to seal the transfer of Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, according to a report and analysis from the Liverpool Echo.

The Belgium international is notably in the final year of his Chelsea contract and has been linked several times with a big move to Real Madrid.

After Chelsea’s nightmare season in 2017-18 this only seems more likely, with the Blues shot-stopper surely feeling he’s good enough to be playing for a competitive club in the Champions League.

As he edges nearer the end of his deal at Stamford Bridge, the less control Chelsea will have over his future as they may have to accept lower offers for him to avoid losing him on a free next summer, when he would obviously just be able to pick his next club.

Real Madrid have already failed with a £35million bid for Courtois, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, and a previous report from the same source linked the Reds as admirers of his.

Courtois could leave Chelsea and Liverpool have been linked

Given Liverpool’s goalkeeping situation, Courtois would be a major statement signing.

The Echo explain that with other ‘keepers situations this summer, it’s possible Courtois could become one of the most realistic options available to Liverpool.

With Roma shot-stopper Alisson emerging as a target for Real Madrid and Jan Oblak perhaps likely to stay at Atletico Madrid, the Echo explain that this could then leave Courtois himself with few other options if he does want to move away from Chelsea, as seems perfectly plausible given the delay over his new deal.

Reds considering move for Porto star Alex Telles

HEAD NEWS - Tue, 19/06/2018 - 11:52

Liverpool are interested in signing Porto defender Alex Telles, according to Portuguese media outlet A Bola.

Telles, who reportedly has a release clause of £35 million, has been a Porto player since his switch from Galatasary in 2016 for £5.7 million and has gone on to make 62 appearances for the club.

Despite a decent stint for the Portuguese team, the 25-year-old had a far less successful time for Galatasary who loaned him out to Inter Milan.

Inter Milan were equally unimpressed with Telles and decided against making his transfer permanent.

However, Telles seems to be much improved in Portugal and has reportedly caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool who are keen to strengthen in the full-back areas.

The Brazilian bagged three goals and 13 assists for Porto during their most recent league campaign, and played 42 times in all competitions including seven times in the Champions League.

Spurs, Chelsea and Juventus are also said to be monitoring his services after a successful 12 months, but Liverpool has emerged as the likliest destination of all the clubs at the moment.

If Telles does land at Anfield, he’s likely to battle it out with Andy Robertson for a starting spot.

Fekir coy on Liverpool move

Nabil Fekir could yet move to Liverpool after the World Cup Nabil Fekir could yet move to Liverpool after the World Cup Nabil Fekir could yet move to Liverpool after the World Cup

Nabil Fekir remained coy on his future when asked about a proposed move to Liverpool this week.

The France international appeared close to securing a switch to Merseyside on the eve of the World Cup, after negotiations between Liverpool and Lyon reached advanced stages.

Despite reports of an agreement being in place with the club and player, Lyon later came out to announce contact with Liverpool had come to an end and their captain would remain in France.

Fekir has now spoken for the first time since his failed switch, and would not be drawn on Liverpool speculation but revealed his future would be resolved at a later date.

"I am here with France, I am happy, and I am not here to discuss my personal situation. We will see about all that later," the playmaker said during a France press conference on Tuesday morning.

"It was great to see [Lyon president] Jean-Michel Aulas yesterday at [World Cup base] Istra but we did not at all discuss my situation at Lyon."

The playmaker says his knee feels as good as it did before major injury The playmaker says his knee feels as good as it did before major injury The playmaker says his knee feels as good as it did before major injury

The 24-year-old's move to Liverpool was reported to have broken down after concerns arose regarding a knee injury sustained by the player earlier in his career.

Fekir suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in September 2015 and was out as recently as February with a knee contusion, which kept him sidelined for a month.

However, the Lyon captain insists his knee feels as strong as it did before the initial big injury: "My knee is super-good. We work a lot on it, we reinforce it. But I honestly feel like before my injury."

Fekir's agent Jean-Pierre Bernes was asked on French TV channel LCI on Monday night why his client didn't join Liverpool, to which he replied: "He didn't sign because um... it is not over! This is not the end of the story."

Brewster looks set for Reds deal

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Mon, 18/06/2018 - 00:00

Last Updated: 17/06/18 10:06pm

Rhian Brewster looks as though he is set to sign his first professional contract with Liverpool, according to Sky sources.

No deal has been signed yet but it is looking a lot more positive that the 18-year-old will be staying at Anfield.

Brewster's future has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks.

Sky Sports News understands that Liverpool called off an August 7 friendly with Borussia Monchengladbach last month over the German club's interest in Brewster.

Club officials also wrote to Monchengladbach warning them over their conduct in pursuing the teenager.

Brewster secured the Golden Boot last October when England won the U17 World Cup in India.
