Samuel Umtiti

Liverpool have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti, as Don Balon claims that the French defender sees the possibility of a move to the Premier League after Barcelona’s humiliating Champions League exit.

The La Liga club were sent packing from the competition despite having a 4-1 lead over AS Roma after the first-leg of the quarter-final. The Serie A club came back superbly in the second-leg, defeating Ernesto Valverde’s men 3-0 and winning on the away goals rule.

While Don Balon has linked us as one of the interested parties for Umtiti’s signature, the player has not signed a new contract extension with the La Liga leaders and has a release clause of €60million.

The Frenchman only joined Barcelona from Lyon last season but has been one of their more consistent defenders. Umtiti is only 24 years old but has already amassed close to 250 first-team appearances for Lyon and Barcelona combined.

Umtiti certainly would be a great addition to the Liverpool side even though we have improved defensively since the arrival of Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutch defender has formed a decent partnership with Dejan Lovren and the pair helped the Reds keep a clean sheet in the 3-0 home win over Bournemouth in the Premier League.

The duo was also great in keeping the Manchester City attack quiet in our Champions League quarter-final tie and only conceded two goals over the two legs.

Signing Umtiti would add a lot of competition in the Liverpool defence and would also provide Jurgen Klopp with options to tinker with.

It will be interesting to see how this news goes. Any club that gets him will have made an excellent signing as Umtiti is a top quality defender.

Wales defeated the Republic of Ireland in a UEFA Nations League game and they have Harry Wilson to thank.

The Liverpool youngster stepped up to score a brilliant free-kick for the away side in the 58th minute.

The 21-year-old was in the news earlier in the season when he smashed in a free-kick at Old Trafford. Manchester United were the opposition for Derby County on that evening and the Welshman’s goal helped the Championship side knock the Red Devils out of the Carabao Cup.

The 21-year-old is on loan at Derby and is one of the brightest youngsters at Anfield. The Welshman certainly got a lot of people talking with his effort against the Republic of Ireland and some fans believed the attacking midfielder has a great future ahead of him.

Alberto Moreno

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has just one start to his name this season and that came in the 2-1 loss against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup at Anfield.

The game will be remembered for an Eden Hazard wonder goal, where the Spaniard was taken to the cleaners by the Belgian.

Moreno has found it tough to reclaim his starting spot in the Liverpool team, with Andy Robertson putting in a number of great performances. The newly appointed Scottish captain is possibly the best left-back in the league and was with the national side during the international break.

The Spaniard was training with the other members of the squad at Melwood and a brilliant video of his was shared. Moreno can be seen doing a couple of quality flicks during training and that got a number of fans interested.

The left-back has been linked (h/t Mirror) with a move to Barcelona in the winter window, and some fans believed this video was a ploy to increase his value ahead of a possible sale.
