Liverpool have apparently approached French side Lille with a view to signing their highly-rated young Belgian playmaker, Eden Hazard.

20 year old Hazard was yesterday named as the French league player of the year after a fantastic season where he guided Lille to their first title since 1954. Hazard is being courted by many of the world’s top clubs including Real Madrid, Arsenal and Inter Milan.

But it is Liverpool who have made the first move by asking Lille to keep them informed on any potential developments in Hazard’s future.

Speculation on the youngsters future will rumble on throughout the summer, but with Lille not prepared to let him go for any less than £25 million, it will be interesting to see which of Europe’s big clubs can afford to splash that amount of money.

Bristol City youngster Lloyd Kelly is being tracked by Liverpool after several fantastic performances in the Championship, according to the Mirror.

The 20-year-old Englishman is predominantly a left-back but is comfortable when switched to operate as a centre-back.

Kelly has 18 Championship appearances for City this season and has even scored a goal. The Championship side lie 13th in the league as they try to push up for a playoff spot.

The report adds that Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the England U21 international. The youngster, who seems to be a player for the future, has also trained with the England senior squad under Gareth Southgate.

The report claims that we are looking to sign him in the winter window, but face competition from the trio of Premier League clubs.

The Reds have done well with some of their young players in recent years and Kelly could be one for the coming years. He could make a story similar to Joe Gomez at Anfield.

The latter joined us on the cheap from Charlton Athletic a few years ago and even made his senior debut as the left-back. However, he has now shifted to central defence and has been impressive for the Reds under Jurgen Klopp.

Gomez is out for a few weeks due to injury and hopefully, he comes back stronger as we look to continue our fantastic start to the season.

“It’s time for a change right now” – Former USA international urges Liverpool target to leave Bundesliga giants

Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic has been told that it is time for a change, with the January window around the corner.

The American was a target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in 2016 (h/t Liverpool Echo), but the Reds had their offer rejected by the Bundesliga giants.

The Liverpool Echo adds that the Reds have kept tabs on the 20-year-old and Chelsea are also interested in signing the winger.

Former United States international Alexi Lalas believes it is time for the winger to leave Dortmund for bigger things in the future.

The American told Colin Cowherd (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“There are teams all over the world that would love to have Christian Pulisic right now. I think he’s done a great job in going over to Germany, he’s done a great job at Borussia Dortmund.

“But I think it’s time for a change right now for Christian Pulisic, and a change to an even higher profile team.”

The report adds that the American is out of contract in 2020 and should he refuse to extend his stay at Dortmund, the club could sell him in the coming window.

Liverpool could do with someone like Pulisic in their side, and he would certainly do well under his former boss Klopp.

The American is one of the bright players in the Bundesliga but hasn’t been great in the current campaign for Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool contact Paris Saint-Germain over out-of-contract Frenchman

Adrien Rabiot of PSG

Liverpool have spoken with Paris Saint-Germain regarding French midfielder Adrien Rabiot, according to L’Equipe (h/t Mirror).

The 23-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the season and even Barcelona are interested in the midfielder, as per the report.

The report adds that the Catalan giants have contacted PSG over Rabiot, but so have Liverpool, despite Jurgen Klopp signing Naby Keita and Fabinho over the summer.

Rabiot is unhappy with his wage at the French club, as per the report, and he earns £55,000-a-week which is lower than what some of the other stars earn at the Ligue 1 giants.

The report adds that the 23-year-old is considering his options in the winter window because he will be free to speak to foreign clubs.

We could be given a bit of a boost in procuring Rabiot’s signature as the report adds that PSG are not interested in letting him sign for Barcelona after relationships between the teams soured following Neymar’s move.

The report adds that we haven’t put in a formal bid yet, and it will be interesting to see our plan in the coming months.

The Reds have signed players on a free under Jurgen Klopp with Joel Matip joining from Schalke. Further, we signed Keita a season early before he joined the Reds, meaning there could be the scope of something similar with the Frenchman.
