Rumours are back! They took a break for a month just after the January transfer window, and they are back hitting the headlines across the globe. Fortunately for the Liverpool fans, there is nothing related to Mohamed Salah’s link with Real Madrid or anything, but it is actually regarding a potential return of a former sensation.
Since the £142 million departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, Liverpool have been linked with a host of attacking players and now a new name has popped out. Well, to be fair, it’s not a new one for Liverpool supporters. Remember Suso, who made near to 20 appearances for us without scoring a goal? Well of course you do. The Spaniard, who is performing out of his skin with AC Milan, is now linked with a return to Anfield.
Liverpool, over the previous transfer windows, have been linked with the likes of Thomas Lemar and Christian Pulisic and while these two are becoming more of a ‘dreamy’ targets, a report from Calciomercato has credited the Reds with an interest for Suso. Suso joined Liverpool Academy at a very young age and on his 17th birthday, his exploits earned him his first professional contract.
But by 2013, Liverpool acquired the services of Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho which saw Suso getting a block towards establishing himself in the first-team. Just before the 2013/14 season, he was loaned out to Almeria in La Liga and in January 2015, AC Milan signed him up on a four-year deal.
The Spaniard, by now, has established himself as an integral part of the Milan squad and this saw him being awarded with a new contract back in December 2017. So now according to Calciomercato, if Liverpool tend to acquire him over the summer, they need to spend as much as €40 million, as the figure is now his release clause.
But then again, signing him now won’t be a walk in the park as the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan are interested as well. Only a few days back, the 24-year-old revealed that Inter made an offer for him over the summer, but since his mind is focused on staying with Milan, he decided to sign a new contract.
“Over the summer, Inter did make me an offer,” confessed the Spaniard to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I had just changed my agent and they spoke to him. I don’t know what Milan told my agent, but I had a very clear idea of what I wanted: to stay here and renew my contract.
“I could’ve left even without renewing the deal, but I am happy here. Of course, nothing is ‘for life’ in football, but it’s important to end the season on a high.”
Described by many as a “technically gifted left-footed player,” Suso has scored eight goals in 36 appearances for Milan this season and it now remains to be seen whether he actually makes his mind of moving away or not.
Liverpool in the race with Man United to sign 20-year-old promising Championship defender
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.
“We want to be as successful as possible” – Jurgen Klopp praises players after record-breaking start to the season
Jurgen Klopp has hailed the Liverpool players for their record-breaking start to the season. The Liverpool Echo reports that our tally of 42 points from 16 games is the best during this stage of a top-flight season.
We achieved that landmark with a 4-0 demolition job of Bournemouth on Saturday and moved to the top of the Premier League table after Chelsea’s win over Manchester City.
Klopp further gave all the credit for the feat to the players (h/t Liverpool Echo):
“I think I said a few years ago that we have to write our own history.
“It’s important but it’s not the most important thing in the world that we beat any team’s record from 30 years ago or whatever.
“The thing is that we want to be as successful as possible. Nobody knows what that means. This league is so difficult to play.”
The manager even had time to joke about the points tally we have achieved so far this season.
“To have 42 points, I usually had that in April, and now it’s December. That’s massive. It’s exceptional, and the boys deserve all the credit for that because they fight for each yard.”
Liverpool looked great in the win over the Cherries but it felt like we had more in the tank. There are a couple of tough matches coming up for the Reds as we face Napoli in the Champions League and Manchester United at the weekend.
We have to beat the Italians to make it to the next round of the European competition, and the pressure will be on to put Carlo Ancelotti’s men to the sword.
Klopp will already be planning the downfall of the Serie A side, and if we play to our potential, there could be a fantastic match at Anfield in midweek.
“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 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.
“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.
The youngster has been upstaged by Jadon Sancho, who is playing better than him at the moment.
