Ryan Sessegnon

According to Coral (h/t the Express), Liverpool have been made the favourites to sign Fulham’s teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon in the summer.

“Liverpool are leading the chase to sign Ryan Sessegnon, according to the betting, however, it looks like all the top Premier League clubs are interested in the Fulham player, therefore, there could be a bidding war for his services this summer,” John Hill told Coral, as quoted by the Express.

Sessegnon has been in blistering form this season in the Championship, with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal alongside Liverpool being keen to secure his signature, reports the Express.

The 17-year-old Sessegnon, who was recently named the as the Championship’s Player of the Year, has scored an eye-catching 14 goals in 41 appearances for Fulham this campaign. He did make his debut for the Cottagers last season but has been a revelation this term, helping Fulham to third place in the Championship table.

Ryan Sessegnon is a Liverpool target

Tottenham were thought to be the frontrunners for Sessegnon’s signature but currently, it is Liverpool who are at the odds of 6-4 to clinch the deal for Fulham’s wonderkid, as per Coral (h/t the Express).

Such has been the impact of Sessegnon at Fulham that he has looked like a big fish in a small pond. A typical modern full-back, the 17-year-old loves to bomb forward and help his teammates in their attacking endeavours.

Sessegnon has time and again stretched opposition defences on the counter-attack as he drifts infield and beyond the central striker whenever he has played on the left-wing.

The Express states that Jurgen Klopp’s Reds could splash the cash on a new left-back should Alberto Moreno depart in the summer and are ready to turn Sessegnon into an attacker in the near future.

The report also claims that Spurs are at odds of 9-4, while Arsenal are at 7-2. Meanwhile, Manchester City and Manchester United are odds at 4-1 and 11-2 respectively, adds the report.

While Andrew Robertson has performed very well this season at left-back, Liverpool must still sign Sessegnon in the summer as the England youth international is quick, agile, versatile and has a sky-high potential to become a future star.

Sessegnon’s impressive performances for Fulham have made him one of the most sought-after youngsters in the English game. While his attacking threat has often been the talking point, it is astonishing to see the 17-year-old composure when it comes to defending.

Newcastle United interested in signing highly-rated 21-year-old Liverpool starlet

Dominic Solanke

Newcastle United are interested in Dominic Solanke, according to the Newcastle Chronicle (h/t Liverpool Echo). The report claims that the club is also looking at another Liverpool striker, Divock Origi.

The club already have a couple of players on loan from English sides, Salomon Rondon and Kenedy, and would not be allowed to make another loan move in the January window.

Solanke has struggled for game time this season and hasn’t played a single minute of football for the senior side. The 21-year-old did score a goal for the Reds in the Premier League last season and made 21 appearances in the competition.

However, only five of those were starts and the youngster hasn’t featured in any of the cup games this season either. Minutes on the pitch will be tough for the Englishman as Liverpool prefer Roberto Firmino to lead the attack.

Daniel Sturridge has seen a revival in his Anfield career this season and has four goals to his name in all competitions.

Solanke does need time on the pitch to get better and it will be interesting to see if we are willing to let him leave in the winter window or not.

Liverpool injury update: Reds confirm that star attacker has undergone a successful surgery

Sadio Mane

Liverpool have confirmed via their official website that star attacker Sadio Mane underwent hand surgery on an injury he picked up during international duty.

The Senegalese star’s surgery was supervised by our medics and was successful. The report adds that Mane’s recovery will be monitored in the coming days ahead of our clash against Huddersfield on Saturday.

The 26-year-old is on a bit of a goal drought as he hasn’t scored for club or country since September 1. Mane’s last goal came in the 2-1 win over Leicester and the 26-year-old doesn’t even have an assist to his name since scoring that goal against the Foxes.

Liverpool need their top stars to be firing but have a number of injury concerns ahead of the Huddersfield clash. Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita, Mohamed Salah and James Milner all have issues that the club have to keep an eye on but we could see a couple of them start against the Terriers.

The Reds haven’t won a game since their 3-0 triumph over Southampton on 22nd September, but we should start as favourites against a win-less Huddersfield.

It will be interesting to see what Jurgen Klopp does with his team. We don’t have tough fixtures until te game against Arsenal November 3, and this is the ideal time for the manager to rotate the squad.

Barcelona interested in January swoop for 29-year-old Liverpool star

Dejan Lovren Mohamed Salah

Dejan Lovren is on the short-list for Barcelona ahead of the January window, according to Mundo Deportivo (h/t Express).

The Croatian has a couple of starts for the Reds this season, with one coming in the 0-0 draw against Manchester City last week.

The 29-year-old has seen his spot in the starting XI taken up by Joe Gomez. Liverpool seem to prefer a centre-back pairing of Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, and that has seen us concede just three goals in eight Premier League games.

The La Liga champions are facing a bit of a crisis at the back, as per the report. Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen are out for a while and that only leaves Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet as the fit central defenders in the team.

Barcelona haven’t looked invincible this season and have conceded nine goals in eight games. They sit second in the league behind Sevilla and have won just four of their opening eight games in the competition.

Lovren, for his part, recently came back from an injury he picked up during the World Cup. The Croatian looked in decent touch against Manchester City and selling him in January would be a big risk taken by the Reds.

Liverpool only have Joel Matip as their other senior central defender and we need to keep the Croatian at the club until the end of the season just in case there’s an injury crisis.
