Zeca (L)

Liverpool target Zeca is ready to take the legal route to get his contract canceled. This is not an ideal way to settle things for any professional, but the 23-year-old defender has mounted a legal claim against his current club Santos, a report from the Mirror claims.

The player has claimed that the club owes him money and that he has been threatened by the fans. This could mean a resurrection of interest by the Reds in the left-back.

Liverpool were monitoring Zeca a year ago and were reported to be mulling over a bid. However, the Reds pulled out of this as the Brazilian Under-21 international was not eligible for a work permit.

It was easy in the past, for players to get a work permit, but considering the rise of South American footballers earning it easily, the rules have been tightened. That has curbed the easy movement of players to Europe. The work permit issues are now a thing of the past as the left-back landed himself an Italian passport in the summer. That makes him eligible for a move to European clubs.

His legal issues with Santos has put the Reds on high alert as we now believe it could open a door for their bid. Zeca is a gold-winning member of the Brazilian team at the 2016 Rio Olympics but has fallen out of favour with his club’s fans after taking to social media to criticise them.

The player’s camp claims that he is unhappy with the lack of security provided to him and he feels threatened at Santos. His lawyer also claims that contractual obligations are to be settled.

Reports indicate that the Sao Paulo-based club are ready to accept a £2m deal for the player, who could leave for nothing in the summer. A court hearing has been set up for the case in April but it is understood that the Brazilian club will not stand in his way if he finds a club before that.

Will that club be Liverpool? We strengthened the left-back position in the summer by signing Andrew Robertson from Hull City. That, coupled with the fact that Alberto Moreno has improved his form, augurs well for Jurgen Klopp.

Should Liverpool take advantage of the situation and go for Zeca?

Blow for Liverpool as Chelsea look set to seal £60million deal for Bundesliga star

Christian Pulisic

Chelsea are set to win the race for Borussia Dortmund sensation Christian Pulisic, according to reports from the Daily Mail (h/t Metro).

The 20-year-old American has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United in recent weeks, but the report claims the winger wants to join Chelsea.

The report adds that Jurgen Klopp has been trying to sign Pulisic for a number of years, but Chelsea could announce a summer deal for the American in the coming month.

The American has been one of the most exciting players in the Bundesliga for a couple of years, and losing him to Chelsea would be a huge blow.

Christian Pulisic

The report adds that the American wants to leave in the summer and that Dortmund want to cash in on the player. The fee for the youngster has not been decided between Chelsea and the Bundesliga side, but the report claims it is around £60million.

Pulisic has somewhat been overshadowed by the form of Jadon Sancho as the English youngster has helped Dortmund to an unbeaten start in the Bundesliga.

The youngster is used more as a substitute these days in the Bundesliga by Dortmund and a fresh challenge will do him some good.

“This one is definitely the answer” – Former Tottenham boss claims this Liverpool star is the signing of the season

Alisson Liverpool

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood shared his opinion on who the best signing has been in the Premier League this season.

The Englishman went for a goalkeeper and named Alisson while discussing the signings with Robbie Savage on BT Sport (h/t Express):

“They needed to fix a problem they had, and a goalkeeper was obviously a problem for Liverpool.

“They’ve tried to sign goalkeepers in the past and it hasn’t been the answer – this one is definitely the answer.

“He’s outstanding on his feet, he sets the moves off very quickly but most importantly, he keeps the ball out the net. He makes big saves at the right time.

“He has quiet periods in games then he makes a huge save – and that is, for me, a tell-tale sign of a world class goalie.”

Alisson

Alisson has made several top quality saves since joining Liverpool. The one against Eden Hazard vs Chelsea, the point-blank save off Andre Gomes in the Merseyside derby and his latest was the incredible last-minute save in the Napoli tie.

Sherwood talked up that save in the Champions League and claimed it was Peter Schmeichel-esque. The Englishman also claimed that the Brazilian would have saved the Demba Ba goal during that incredible 2013-14 season where we missed the title.

“You can’t win zero without a good goalkeeper. Right now, Liverpool, they haven’t got the best but they’re right up there with the top three keepers in the Premier League.”

“Dont know where he goes from here now” – Some Liverpool fans concerned about youngster returning from loan deal

Ovie Ejaria and Jurgen Klopp

Ovie Ejaria is set to return to Liverpool and end his loan spell with Rangers early. The club released a statement regarding the 21-year-old who scored two goals in 28 games for Steven Gerrard’s side. The release added this was the best move for all involved.

“However, following discussions between the two clubs, as well as Ejaria and his family, it has been determined an early return to the Reds is in the best interests of all parties concerned.”

The release thanked the Scottish giants for helping the 21-year-old Englishman, and it will be interesting to see what the next step for the youngster would be.

Ejaria is one of the highly rated players in our youth system but for some reason, things just did not work out for him at Rangers.

We have another star on loan at Rangers in Ryan Kent, and the winger has been doing pretty well at the club. Many Liverpool fans chipped in with their thoughts regarding the return of Ejaria, and here are some reactions from Twitter.
