Rumours are back! They took a break for a month just after the January transfer window, and they are back hitting the headlines across the globe. Fortunately for the Liverpool fans, there is nothing related to Mohamed Salah’s link with Real Madrid or anything, but it is actually regarding a potential return of a former sensation.

Since the £142 million departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, Liverpool have been linked with a host of attacking players and now a new name has popped out. Well, to be fair, it’s not a new one for Liverpool supporters. Remember Suso, who made near to 20 appearances for us without scoring a goal? Well of course you do. The Spaniard, who is performing out of his skin with AC Milan, is now linked with a return to Anfield.

Liverpool, over the previous transfer windows, have been linked with the likes of Thomas Lemar and Christian Pulisic and while these two are becoming more of a ‘dreamy’ targets, a report from Calciomercato has credited the Reds with an interest for Suso. Suso joined Liverpool Academy at a very young age and on his 17th birthday, his exploits earned him his first professional contract.

But by 2013, Liverpool acquired the services of Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho which saw Suso getting a block towards establishing himself in the first-team. Just before the 2013/14 season, he was loaned out to Almeria in La Liga and in January 2015, AC Milan signed him up on a four-year deal.

The Spaniard, by now, has established himself as an integral part of the Milan squad and this saw him being awarded with a new contract back in December 2017. So now according to Calciomercato, if Liverpool tend to acquire him over the summer, they need to spend as much as €40 million, as the figure is now his release clause.

But then again, signing him now won’t be a walk in the park as the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan are interested as well. Only a few days back, the 24-year-old revealed that Inter made an offer for him over the summer, but since his mind is focused on staying with Milan, he decided to sign a new contract.

“Over the summer, Inter did make me an offer,” confessed the Spaniard to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I had just changed my agent and they spoke to him. I don’t know what Milan told my agent, but I had a very clear idea of what I wanted: to stay here and renew my contract.

“I could’ve left even without renewing the deal, but I am happy here. Of course, nothing is ‘for life’ in football, but it’s important to end the season on a high.”

Described by many as a “technically gifted left-footed player,” Suso has scored eight goals in 36 appearances for Milan this season and it now remains to be seen whether he actually makes his mind of moving away or not.

Liverpool youngster Marko Grujic has picked up ankle ligament damage during Hertha Berlin’s 4-2 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, as per Sky Sports.

The Serbian midfielder joined the Bundesliga side on a loan deal and has played four games for them. Hertha are currently second in the competition behind Bayern Munich with 10 points from four games.

Hertha’s general manager Michael Preetz was quoted by Sky Sports saying.

“Marko has managed to make a significant difference to our game in the short time he has been with us, which is why the loss for him personally and for us is very, very bitter.

“Now we will look after him and help him, so that he can play that role as soon as possible.”

The report adds that the midfielder had signed a new deal with the Reds before joining the Bundesliga side on loan and was part of the Serbian World Cup squad in Russia.

Grujic had a huge role to play in Cardiff’s promotion to the Premier League last season and did well in his three starts for Hertha this term.

(Video) Mohamed Salah hands Liverpool jersey to tearful young fan after win over Saints

Mohamed Salah got on the scoresheet against Southampton over the weekend but also there was another moment that is being spoken about on social media.

The Egyptian broke his mini-drought as he scored from Xherdan Shaqiri’s free-kick and he also had a few chances to make it two in the game.

The former AS Roma forward hasn’t been at his free-scoring best from last season but is slowly regaining his mojo in front of the goal.

Wayne Dunlop posted a video of his son on Twitter. The child was holding up a sign after the match at Anfield and Salah gave the youngster his shirt from the game.

It is an emotional video of the Twitter user’s son, Lewis, tearing up as the Egyptian hands him the shirt he wore during the game.

Salah even responded to the video uploaded and Wayne was very happy that his son received such a fantastic piece of memorabilia from Anfield.

The Egyptian is one of the best footballers in the world but it is moments like these that ensure the fans love players more.

Salah could have ignored the young fan and walked down the tunnel but he took time out to make the fan happy.

The Reds lead the Premier League standings at the moment, having won all six of their clashes in the Premier League so far.

Jurgen Klopp dispels injury concern after surprise substitution against Southampton

Published

Xherdan Shaqiri

Xherdan Shaqiri started for Liverpool in the clash against Southampton and was instrumental in our a 3-0 lead at half-time.

His shot was turned into the net by Wesley Hoedt for our first goal and his free-kick was slotted into an open net by Mohamed Salah for our third.

It was a little surprising that Jurgen Klopp decided to take the Swiss star off at half-time and replace him with James Milner.

Shaqiri was our most impressive attacker on Saturday as he played an advanced role behind our front three.

However, Milner came onto the pitch and we played with three central midfielders, something Klopp has used to great effect throughout his time at Liverpool.

The German spoke to the club’s official website as he explained he wanted more control in the game and that’s why he took Shaqiri off.

“I said to Shaq at half-time that I had never brought a player off after such an influential time without an injury. He is not injured. But I wanted to control the game and go back to our normal formation. And that helped, we really controlled it.”

The manager further added that it was not easy to make the change, given how influential Shaqiri was in the first half.

Klopp did explain the change to Shaq but playing the Swiss star had an impact on our defence and that was a problem for the manager.

“The only problem was defensively. Offensively, it was a good idea but, how I said, we have to work on that more often. But he was good and I liked it.”
