Liverpool fans are unimpressed after Bobby Duncan scores for Fiorentina U19s

Liverpool’s quiet summer went completely crazy during the final days of the transfer window.

The Reds didn’t make any major signings as they consolidated their Champions League win by tying several players to new deals.

Liverpool did bring in a couple of young players and moved for experienced keepers, but were unable to keep hold of Bobby Duncan.

The 18-year-old featured during the pre-season for the Reds but his agent Saif Rubie went on a tirade against the club and Michael Edwards.

Rubie’s outburst even targeted Jamie Carragher later on, and it was no surprise that Duncan was allowed to join Fiorentina.

The agent had claimed that Duncan was promised first-team football for the Reds and was expected to leave the club on loan for more experience, however, the move was made permanent to the Serie A side.

Duncan scores a fantastic goal for his side

The 18-year-old bagged a wonderful goal for Fiorentina recently and shared a clipping from the game against AS Roma.

However, many supporters found out that this game was for the U19s and not for the senior side.

La Viola’s senior side beat AC Milan during the weekend and the U19s beat Roma 3-0.

Duncan might have scored a fantastic goal, but he has moved down a notch as he featured for reserve side for the Reds.

The youngster could have also been in the squad for some of the Carabao Cup games this season, and many Liverpool fans highlighted that things haven’t gone as planned for Duncan.

Liverpool scout Schalke star Amine Harit over possible move

Liverpool have sent a scout to watch Schalke midfielder Amine Harit in action, according to Il Corriere dello Sport (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The 22-year-old has five goals and two assists from 11 Bundesliga games this season. Harit is of Moroccan descent and can play in a number of positions.

The Schalke star primarily is a midfielder but has played on the right side this season for David Wagner.

The report claims that Klopp could use his personal relationship with Wagner to try and seal a move for the 22-year-old.

Liverpool in need of a midfielder?

Klopp might have some decisions to make in the summer regarding our midfield options.

James Milner and Adam Lallana are in their 30s while Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson are 29.

Lallana is also a free agent at the end of the season and hasn’t featured much for the Reds in recent seasons.

We have three midfielders who are 26 or below with Fabinho starring for us this season. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems to be coming back to form while Naby Keita’s injury woes continue.

The Reds also have Marko Grujic out on loan, and the Serbian has done a great job over the past 18 months or so at Hertha Berlin.

Liverpool didn’t make any major moves in the previous summer, however, we can always do with more young talent joining the side.

Sander Berge has been recently linked with Liverpool after featuring for Genk in the Champions League (h/t Express).

Napoli are facing a bit of a crisis in recent weeks with the players also facing off against club president Aurelio de Laurentiis.

Berge came through the ranks at Vaalerenga and moved to Genk in 2017. The Belgians have slapped a €25million price-tag on his head and the report claims Napoli will make a move in January (h/t Calciomercato).

However, due to Napoli’s asking price, Napoli might shelf their move till the summer (h/t Calciomercato).

Berge is also a regular for the Norway national team, and it will be interesting to see if he is on the move soon.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was seen speaking to the player after the Champions League clash at Anfield too (h/t Express).

Big decisions lie for Berge

Berge has to take the right decision regarding his future with first-team football a requirement too.

Napoli have done well in recent seasons despite making managerial changes in the past.

However, Liverpool have also handed chances to young players under Klopp, and we could do with more talents coming in the future.

Boost for Liverpool as this defender’s knee injury might not be too serious

Joe Gomez

Joe Gomez’s England injury isn’t considered serious after knee scan

Joe Gomez’s time with England during this international break was cut short after injuring his knee in an accidental collision.

The Liverpool defender has seen a lot happen over the past week at the Three Lions camp. He was involved in a bust-up with Raheem Sterling which saw a cut appear below his right eye.

Sterling accepted his mistake in the bust-up but there was more to come. The Liverpool defender came off the bench against Montenegro and was booed by some sections of the England fan.

Gomez has had a tough time with Liverpool too as Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren are ahead of him in the pecking order.

He did come on for the final few minutes against Manchester City, and we need all our players to be fit for the rest of the season.

Dominic King of the Daily Mail allayed some fears about the extent of Gomez’s injury.

The journalist tweeted about Gareth Southgate’s update regarding the 22-year-old and how it wasn’t serious:

Gomez’s injury troubles

The youngster has had his issues with injuries in the past too. Last season, the centre-back suffered a fracture in the win over Burnley and was out for almost six months.

His initial recovery didn’t go well and the youngster had to go under the knife. Liverpool had several problems in the centre-back spot then and fielded Fabinho in some games.

This season has also been tough on the defenders with Joel Matip suffering a problem too. The Cameroon centre-back hasn’t played for us since the 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

That leaves us with just Virgil van Dijk and Lovren as the fit centre-backs, and hopefully, Gomez is not out for long.
