Ben Woodburn

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has agreed to let his 18-year-old forward Ben Woodburn leave on loan to Championship side Sunderland for the rest of the season, as Black Cats manager Chris Coleman is looking to strengthen his squad in order to get his side above the relegation zone. (Daily Mail)

Sunderland are currently sitting at the bottom of the Championship table with just 22 points from 26 fixtures. And in order to help his side bounce back, Sunderland boss Coleman is looking to bring Woodburn and is happily willing to give the 18-year-old as much game-time as possible to continue his development.

Woodburn is rated highly by the Liverpool faithful but the fact that he has hardly been offered regular football has been a stumbling block in his progress. The 18-year-old has only made one appearance for the Reds this season, which came in the 2-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City in the Carabao Cup in September.

However, as things stand for Jurgen Klopp, he has already stated that he is in no rush sanction any loan deals as he wants to keep his squad up and running for the rest of the season and for all right reasons. But the case of Ben Woodburn has proved to be an exception as Klopp has agreed to sanction a loan move, which will no doubt help Sunderland in their fight to avoid relegation.

Coleman has insisted he wants players, or youngsters we should say, who are talented and keen on proving themselves, rather than having a player with immense experience but with no desire to fight.

“It’s all about hunger,” Coleman said, per the Daily Mail. “You can have £50million in the bank and 500 games under your belt, but if you’ve lost your appetite then you can’t come here or shouldn’t be here.

“Give me an 18, 19, 20-year-old who is climbing with a bit of fight and fire in his belly, I’ll take that all day long. I’ve seen some players who have been around the block kidding themselves, thinking they still have that bite, that burning desire, but maybe they’ve lost it a little bit.

“Finance has softened them up. Maybe they’ve got a perception of themselves that is actually not true. But I don’t care, 17? 18? If you’re ready and capable, come here.”

Do you think the loan move is the right thing for Woodburn?

Ousmane Dembele

James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo has claimed that the Reds are not interested in launching a bid for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele in January.

Liverpool have been linked with a massive £85million (h/t Liverpool Echo) deal for the French forward, however, the report claims that Jurgen Klopp is not willing to buy players in January as he believes the team can challenge on all fronts.

The French attacker joined the Catalan giants from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £135million (h/t Liverpool Echo), but injuries have hurt his progress at Barcelona.

Pearce did believe that Klopp could spend in the winter window only if we are dealt with a number of injuries.

Liverpool are second in the Premier League and have a decent chance of making it out of their Champions League group too.

However, some fans were not happy with the report from Pearce and wanted the club to sign an attacking midfielder in the winter window.

Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic hasn’t ruled out playing in the Premier League someday. The American is one of the best youngsters in the Bundesliga and was brought to Borussia Dortmund by Jurgen Klopp.

The Express reports that Liverpool have been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

Pulisic was quoted by the Express as saying:

“England, the Premier League, is a league where lots of kids dream of playing.

“So there is no reason why maybe one day I won’t play here.”

The Express adds that Klopp bid £11million for the American in 2016 but Dortmund rejected that offer. Pulisic has helped the club to the top of the Bundesliga this season and has two goals and two assists.

The report adds that Manchester United are also interested in the 20-year-old, and could rival any bid made by the Anfield giants.

The American added that he is enjoying his season with the Germans and knows that tabloid tales are part of the game.

Pulisic would be a wonderful addition to the team, and the youngster can play in a number of positions in the attacking third.
