Latest Liverpool transfer news: Reds unwilling to sell Roberto Firmino despite PSG interest

The BBC (h/t Daily Star) reports that Liverpool have no interest in selling Roberto Firmino and have not entered negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain over the star attacker.

The report claims that PSG have set their eyes on the Brazilian as they look to improve their squad but the Reds do not want to part with the former Hoffenheim star.

PSG were knocked out by Manchester United in the Champions League and even lost the league cup final recently. The Reds are coming off a fantastic league campaign, with Firmino playing a key role in the side.

The Brazilian scored 16 goals and 7 assists in all competitions, but he does a lot of work off the ball too.

Liverpool have no plans to sell any of their stars

The report adds that Liverpool do not see themselves as a selling club and we could end the season with the Champions League returning to Anfield.

The Reds face Tottenham in the final on 1st June, and we are favourites to land the title ahead of our clash in Madrid.

Liverpool have an incredible side at the moment, and the report claims that there won’t be any huge changes in the summer.

Klopp explains why he chose to leave out 30-year-old Liverpool star for Napoli clash

Jurgen Klopp explains decision to leave out Dejan Lovren against Napoli

Dejan Lovren hasn’t played a single minute for us this season after being linked with an exit from Liverpool in the summer (h/t Express).

The Croatian has fallen down the pecking order since the rise of Joel Matip and Joe Gomez, and was even left out of the squad for the trip to Napoli.

Liverpool start the defence of their Champions League crown against the Italian giants but Lovren will not feature in the team.

Jurgen Klopp explained his decision to leave Lovren out of the team but suggested that this was a tactical move (h/t Express):

“As an example, Dejan Lovren is not in the squad and I have no explanation for that other than two centre halves on the bench is probably not necessary.”

Klopp also highlighted that Xherdan Shaqiri was brought in as he provides options for a few positions and adds to the creativity of the team.

Tough times for Lovren

The 30-year-old will have to fight for a place in the starting XI and that will not be easy given the form of Matip and Virgil van Dijk.

The pair has been excellent over the past nine months or so and has helped us to a great start in the Premier League.

It will be interesting to see if Lovren gets a few games in the domestic cup competitions.

Jurgen Klopp clarifies agent’s comments about weather impacting his future

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has clarified his agent’s comments regarding the English weather impacting his future at the club.

The German’s agent, Marc Kosicke, spoke to Sporx and claimed that the English weather would play a role in his time at Anfield.

However, Klopp clarified that his agent was only trying to make a joke about the weather (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“I think he wanted to make a joke! But now I have to be serious because I could make a lot of jokes about the weather, especially when I am sweating like crazy (in Napoli’s media room).”

The manager added that was just “German humour” and no one understood it. However, Klopp did suggest that the weather isn’t always the best in Liverpool:

“The weather in Liverpool is not always nice, especially in winter, but in March and September, it is nicer than you would imagine.

“I came in October 2015 and and you could sing a song ‘Don’t move to Liverpool in October’ and until March, for five months, it was not too cool and it was harsh.”

Klopp doesn’t mind the weather in England

The German did reveal that he spoke about the wind in a few games but says that this isn’t enough to see him leave the country.

Klopp also added that he was fine with the current weather in the country and he enjoys it:

“I am completely fine with the weather in Liverpool. It’s pretty much the opposite of this room right now! So I enjoy it quite often actually.”

The manager finished by saying that his agent was having a joke and no one actually got it.

Jurgen Klopp confirms Divock Origi is out for a couple of weeks

Divock Origi picked up an injury in our 3-1 win over Newcastle United and had to be replaced by Roberto Firmino.

The Belgian was taken off in the first half after hurting his ankle, and will not feature for Liverpool against Napoli.

The 24-year-old scored some important goals for us in the Champions League last season, and Jurgen Klopp provided an update on the striker (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“The update on Div is that it is not too serious.

“We expect him [to be out for] between one and two weeks, but it depends a little bit on when he can deal with the pain.

“It is nothing really; it’s a feeling, but it should be fine.”

Good news for Liverpool

The Belgian might not be on the same levels as our first-choice front three, but he is a decent player to have on the bench.

The former Lille striker is the back-up to Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, and this update from Klopp is a bit of a relief for us.

Liverpool have some big games coming up after this week, with Leicester City, Tottenham and MK Dons (Carabao Cup) on the horizon.

Origi should feature in some of these games as we need to give a bit of a break to the likes of Mane, Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

The trio has started the season in blistering form, and hopefully, they remain injury-free for the majority of the campaign.
