Wednesday Liverpool Round-up: Competition For £50m Hit-man, Jamie Carragher In A Fiery Twitter Exchange



Reds Face Stiff Competition For Italian Hitman

Insigne is being targeted by Liverpool.

Italian forward Lorenzo Insigne is subjected to a tug of war between multiple clubs this summer. The Napoli star who has been on fire this season will cost around £50 million with Napoli proving to be tough negotiators in the past.

The Calciomercato reports that Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Arsenal are the clubs showing renewed interest in Insigne, 25. However, it is widely believed that the player will favour a move to Liverpool over the other two teams.

A £50 million fee is touted while contract extension talks are already underway between Insigne and Napoli.

James Milner Admits Youngsters Weren’t Helpful

Meanwhile, James Milner believes that the senior players in the team did not offer much help to the youngsters in the 2-1 comeback win at Stoke.

Youngsters Ben Woodburn and Trent- Alexander Arnold were the surprise starters in the game but they were withdrawn at half-time after not being able to create sufficient impact. The Brazilian duo of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino both entered the fray and helped the team to a remarkable comeback which saw them score twice in quick succession.

However, James Milner believes that the senior players let down the youngsters and did not help them much, reports the Liverpool Echo.

“I think at this stage of the season every three points is important, especially after going 1-0 down,” he said. 

“We didn’t play well in the first half and the two boys coming on (Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino) made a big change for us.

“Nothing against the two young boys who started the game, we probably let them down as senior guys, we didn’t play well and didn’t help them out.

“We managed to get going in the second half, could have scored a few more and Simon (Mignolet) made two unbelievable saves at important times in the game.”

Jamie Carragher Shreds Richards Keys Into Pieces

Jamie Carragher is slowly becoming a famous personality on Twitter. He already has one million followers and he is known for brutally trolling famous football related celebrities.

The latest to fall into this trap is Ex-Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys.

It all started when Keys called into question Carragher’s description of Arsenal players as “cowards” following their latest awful performance in the 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Keys clearly thought Carragher went over the top and tweeted accordingly

And Carragher wasn’t having any criticism of it

But Keys – clearly not understanding that the former defender is a pro at this sort of thing – wouldn’t let it lie there, and he tried to come back with the age-old Twitter slight which follows around everyone who used to play for Liverpool in the Premier League.

And that was like a red rag to the former Red.

From there, Carragher’s takedown was swift fierce and brutally honest.
