Latest Liverpool news: Corentin Tolisso and Arjen Robben expected to miss Liverpool clash

Bayern Munich host Liverpool in a second leg Champions League round of 16 tie on Wednesday.

The tie is poised well at 0-0 and the Reds know a scored draw will be enough to see them through to the next round.

Liverpool were without the services of Virgil van Dijk in the first leg, but the Dutchman should be back in the starting XI after serving his suspension.

The Bundesliga’s website decided to run through the huge clash at the Allianz Arena and reported a couple of players are out of the tie.

Arjen Robben and Corentin Tolisso will not feature in the tie. The report adds that Kingsley Coman is also a doubt for the tie, but is hopeful of making the team for the second leg.

A couple of huge replacements for Munich

Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich are out of the tie due to suspension, and the report claims that Franck Ribery and Rafinha are expected to replace the pair.

We could target the experienced by ageing Rafinha down the right, however, the Reds have to be wary of the threat possessed by Ribery.

The Frenchman is still a quality winger, and it will be interesting to see how we do in this tie.

Bayern come into the tie in great form having scored six past Wolfsburg in the league, however, the Reds also scored four in their win over Burnley.

Sadio Mane seems to be the main man for the Reds having bagged a brace in the win while Roberto Firmino also did a great job scoring a pair.

There are doubts regarding the fitness of Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Milner for the tie. Hopefully, Trent is fit for the clash and has a great game in midweek.

Latest Liverpool transfer news: James Rodriguez could be on his way to the Premier League

Sky Sports Germany (h/t Mirror) reports that James Rodriguez will not extend his stay with Bayern Munich and wants a new club in the summer.

The 27-year-old joined the Bavarians on a two-year loan deal in 2017 from Real Madrid, and the report claims that the Colombian has struggled to settle at the Bundesliga club.

Rodriguez has put up some great performances for the Bavarians this season and scored 7 goals in the Bundesliga.

Bayern had the choice of signing the Colombian permanently for £37million, but the report claims that Rodriguez isn’t interested in staying at the club.

The report adds that the 27-year-old will meet with agent Jorge Mendes and discuss his future move, and he isn’t interested in staying at Real Madrid too. Zinedine Zidane is back at the club, and he doesn’t see Rodriguez in his plans, according to the report.

Liverpool interested in Rodriguez

The report claims that Liverpool are interested in the Colombian but so are a couple of other Premier League sides.

Manchester United and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the 27-year-old, and the report claims that Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in Rodriguez.

Liverpool already have a fantastic first-team under Jurgen Klopp but could do with another attacking midfielder in the side.

Rodriguez’s time at Bayern has been average, to say the least, and there is no surety if he will fit into the scheme of things at Anfield.

The Reds play a high-energy game under Klopp and it will be interesting to see who we sign once the season is complete.

Boost for the Reds as Klopp provides positive news over two Liverpool stars returning to fitness

Latest Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp provides a positive update on two Liverpool players

Jurgen Klopp provided some positive news regarding Roberto Firmino’s return to the first-team.

The Brazilian missed our last three games and is working to regain fitness ahead of the Champions League final against Tottenham.

The forward is at our training camp at Marbella, and Klopp claimed that the Brazilian still needs to be looked after (h/t LiverpoolFC.com):

“Bobby looks really good [and] he is now part of training. It was not too long out, but of course we are still careful and want to make sure nothing happens.”

The manager added that Firmino had played in some of the smaller games with the rest of the players and it was “the first step to play football.”

“Today he was in around about 70 per cent of the session. Tomorrow he will probably be in completely, we will see, then hopefully it will be fine.”

More good news for Liverpool

Firmino returning to fitness for the final would be a huge boost to our attack.

The Brazilian has a great relationship with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, and the trio could cause Tottenham all sorts of problems.

Klopp also spoke about another injured player as Naby Keita is making a return from an abductor injury sustained against Barcelona at the Nou Camp:

“Naby is, I would say, a bit ahead of schedule, but that doesn’t mean anything for the final.”

The German added that the player is running and doing some work, and spoke about Keita possibly playing in the Africa Cup of Nations in the summer.

“For me, it would be good if Naby would be 100 per cent fit and could play the Africa Cup of Nations, to be 100 per cent honest.”

However, Klopp confirmed that Keita would not be playing in the tournament if he wasn’t completely fit, and claimed that the medical staff would work to get the Guinea midfielder back to his best.

Liverpool have just over a week before the final and hopefully, we have Firmino ready to go against Spurs at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Liverpool FC transfer news: Sheyi Ojo close to joining Steven Gerrard at Rangers

The Daily Star reports that 21-year-old winger Sheyi Ojo will sign a new five-year deal with Liverpool and then be on the move.

The English youngster was on loan at Reims last season but only made three starts for the Ligue 1 side. Ojo did play 18 games in all competitions for the French side, but most of them came off the bench.

The report claims that Ojo will be joining Rangers after signing a new deal with the Reds. Gers manager Steven Gerrard used his connections to sign a couple of players from Liverpool last season.

Ryan Kent was a success at the club, and the report claims that Gerrard is looking to keep the Englishman for another season.

However, Kent is expected to move to another club, and the report claims that Ojo would be his replacement for the Scottish giants.

Ojo needs to play regular football

The report claims that Ojo is highly rated at Anfield, and it should not come as a surprise if he is loaned out for another season.

The English winger will find it difficult to get regular minutes under Jurgen Klopp next season. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane could do with some competition, however, Ojo hasn’t proven his ability in a top league yet.

It will be interesting to track his development next season and see if he performs better than Kent at Rangers.
