Jean Michael Seri

Liverpool are getting ready for a winter transfer window tussle with Manchester City as latest reports indicate that the Premier League duo is all set to battle it out for the signature of Jean Michael Seri. The Ivory Coast international, currently at OGC Nice, is attracting eyeballs from across Europe but latest reports indicate that the Reds and the Cityzens are in pole position for the youngster.

According to the Daily Mail, the Reds are preparing a big-money move for the 26-year-old. Interestingly, it was only in August that Nice reportedly turned down a £35.2million move for the player from Barcelona.

That came right after the Catalans were flush with transfer money of Neymar. It was reported at that time that Seri was close to joining the Spanish side, but that the bid was rejected by Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere, much to the dismay and disappointment of the player.

Now, it is being reported that City and Liverpool have entered the fray and have had their scouts watch Seri extensively this season. The report also talks about further scouting from the Premier League giants before making a move.

Paris Saint-Germain is another interested club, but Seri has set his sights on a move to England – according to sources – either in January or the next summer.

As you hear with every target across Europe, Arsenal were also interested in the player but did not go ahead with a formal approach. The player is currently recuperating from an injury that has prevented him from playing for almost a month.

So, can Liverpool cut through the traffic and get their man? Liverpool are looking increasingly likely to lose Emre Can, most probably to Juventus. RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita is scheduled to join the club next summer, but manager Jurgen Klopp is looking to add more quality to his ranks.

Pep Guardiola and City are also on the lookout for a central midfielder as Fernandinho and Yaya Toure are looking like a pale shadow of their old selves while Ilkay Gundogan is injury-prone.

If the Reds can show the prospect of more game time than anyone, including City, a deal for Seri may not be difficult.

(Video) Liverpool sends fans down memory lane with memory of fantastic goal



Fabio Aurelio Liverpool

Liverpool pulled a rabbit out of the hat by signing Andy Robertson from Hull City. The Scot wasn’t a big name then and didn’t cost us much but he has been incredible since breaking into the first-team.

The newly appointed Scotland captain is easily one of the best left-backs in the world and is only getting better with game time.

Although Liverpool have finally signed a dependable left-back, that wasn’t the case for many years as Alberto Moreno and Jose Enrique never seemed to fulfil their potential.

The Reds were a little unlucky with one player and that was Fabio Aurelio, the Brazilian. The former Valencia player was a Red for six seasons but made just 87 appearances in the Premier League.

The left-back was known for his incredible delivery and had a fantastic moment or two. His goal against Manchester United at Old Trafford is one of our greatest moments post the Champions League win in 2005 and FA Cup in 2006 and the Reds wished the 38-year-old on his birthday.

The Brazilian was great at set-pieces but his injuries prevented him from reaching his potential. Rafa Benitez got the best out of the now 38-year-old but the defender had to retire a few years ago as injuries caught up to him.

Former Liverpool star claims he wants to play under this manager



Kevin Keegan Liverpool

Kevin Keegan’s managerial career can be remembered for his rant against Manchester United and slumping behind the advertising hoardings after Liverpool beat Newcastle 4-3.

The former England star was one of the best during his time as he picked up a couple of Ballon d’Ors and won numerous titles as a player for the Reds.

Keegan certainly knows a thing or two about winning trophies and in a recent interview with the Guardian, the former England captain added that out of the current managers, he would love to play under Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds play attacking football but Keegan claimed he saw a bit of himself in Klopp and hence, would have played under our manager.

“I’d have to go for [Jürgen] Klopp because he’s like me.”

“He is going to tackle someone one day.

“I was very close to it [too]. When someone was breaking away and it was near the touchline, and I was stood there, I was very close one day to bringing him down. I really was.”

The 67-year-old is right about Klopp’s passion for the game and that is one reason why we are doing so well. The German has turned us into one of the best sides in the country and it is time for him to break his trophy duck at Anfield.

The Reds last won a trophy in 2012 but with Klopp at the helm and the players producing incredible performances, we may have something to cheer about at the end of the campaign.

“Wasn’t his best goal”, “He scored better” – Some Liverpool fans are certain Puskas had better goals last season



Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah came third in the best men’s player category at the recent FIFA awards but the Liverpool star did pick up the Puskas Award for the best goal of the season.

The winning moment came against Everton on 10th December 2017 as Salah jinked past a couple of players before curling the ball into the net.

The effort was adjudged to be better than Gareth Bale’s strike against us in the Champions League final and Cristiano Ronaldo’s effort against Juventus in the same competition.

Salah was on a tear last season as he broke the Premier League scoring record with 32 goals in the competition. The forward had a number of magical moments and a few fans were convinced this wasn’t the Egyptian’s best goal of the season.

There were brilliant efforts against Watford and Tottenham that come to mind. The 25-year-old hasn’t been on fire this season but the award should come as a handy boost for the remainder of the campaign.
