Liverpool Firmino

Liverpool star Roberto Firmino wants the club to pick up trophies under Jurgen Klopp. The Brazilian was one of the stars from last season with 27 goals and believes that Klopp has had an incredible impact at Anfield.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the forward was quoted as saying:

“We’ve been doing well, we made a good start under him and we’re dreaming big. We want to keep working hard and win trophies.

“I’m very happy under him and think he’s an incredible coach. I’ve learnt so much from him and that doesn’t only apply to me, but to the whole team. I think he’s excellent.”

Liverpool’s next game is against Manchester City on Sunday and our forward spoke about last season’s 4-3 win over Pep Guardiola’s men.

“It was incredible. It was an amazing game which we managed to win. The adrenaline, combined with the atmosphere on the pitch during such special games, is always incredible. It was sensational.”

The Reds have made a fantastic start to the season with six wins and a draw but facing City will be a stern test on Sunday.

The Brazilian claimed the club wants to win trophies but we have to stay grounded since the season has just begun.

Firmino added: “We’re taking it step by step, trying to play well and win games. We’re just looking ahead and will see where that takes us.”

Liverpool interested in signing 27-year-old superstar from Napoli

Published

Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are interested in signing Napoli superstar Lorenzo Insigne, according to Rai Sport (h/t Metro).

The Italian scored a late winner for the Serie A club in our Champions League loss a couple of weeks ago. The report adds that Chelsea are keeping an eye on the 27-year-old too and would rival the Reds for any bid on the Italian.

The attacker is known to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their time at Napoli. The report adds that any team looking to sign Insigne up would have to stump a huge fee since the player has four years left on his current deal.

The attacker has seven goals and an assist in all competitions for the Serie A side, so far, and helped them to second place in the league last season.

The report adds that Klopp wants more firepower for the Reds and Insigne could be the perfect fit at Anfield.

Liverpool have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as quality wingers and added Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer. However, signing Insigne could make our attack one of the best in the world.

The report adds it would be difficult for Insigne to switch clubs in the winter window and we would have to wait till the summer before we make a bid for the 27-year-old.

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool have been handed a triple boost ahead of their game against Huddersfield on Saturday. The Mirror reports that Virgil van Dijk, James Milner and Mohamed Salah are certain of being fit for the Premier League game.

Milner had injured his hamstring in the 0-0 draw against Manchester City and was expected to be out of action until December, as per the report.

However, the Englishman has made a remarkable recovery, and the report adds that Liverpool’s medics have given him the all-clear to make a comeback.

Milner has to take part in full training on Thursday to have a chance of making it to the team for the Huddersfield game.

Salah and Van Dijk also had injuries during the international break. However, the Egyptian only has a slight muscle strain while the Dutch defender has been dealing with a rib injury that requires pain-killers, as per the report.

“He is ready to play next weekend.”
