Isco

According to a report from , Real Madrid star Isco will leave Bernabeu at the end of the season and Juventus are crazy about the playmaker.

But claims Isco doesn’t want to leave Real but has offers from City, Chelsea and Juventus, with Liverpool the latest club to express an interest in him.

With Real chief Florentino Perez  ready to sell the Spaniard if he gets the right offer on the table, should Liverpool make a move for one of the gifted playmakers across Europe?

A big yes! Jurgen Klopp should have some serious plans for his side next season. The Reds have performed very well this season, especially in Europe, where they have put one foot in the semi-finals of the Champions League after beating Manchester City 3-0 in the first leg last week. City have a mountain to climb in the second leg and Klopp will be confident of securing a place in the last four of Champions League on Tuesday.

Chelsea’s draw against West Ham last weekend widened the gap between them and Liverpool to 10 points. With just six games left—five for Liverpool—Klopp will be confident of playing in the Champions League next season. The German would be looking to add top players this summer, with one eye on replacing Philippe Coutinho, who left Liverpool for Barcelona in January.

The Reds are boosted by the they received for Coutinho and could make a stunning move for Isco at the end of the season.

The Spaniard has been constantly with a move to Anfield. Isco is one of the most exciting players in his position in Europe at the moment but is finding it tough lately to cement a place in the first team at the Bernabeu.  odds suggest that Isco is likely to play a bench role within the Spnaish team.

Since signing for Malaga in 2013, Isco has developed into one of the most sought-after playmakers in Europe. He did endure difficulties adapting to Real’s style of play in his first season but once he got accustomed, the Spaniard became a treat to watch.

Known for his precise passing and eye for creativity, Isco is a joy to watch when he is on song. He is a supremely gifted and talented midfielder, who can make it to the starting XI of any team.

Isco with his stellar displays for Real has built a reputation in recent years. At Real, it hasn’t been just down to creativity for the Spaniard; in fact, Isco has turned into an all-rounded attacking midfielder with a productive goals output.

Apart from having an eye for scoring goals, Isco also possesses a silky first touch, top vision, excellent passing abilities and top-notch dribbling skills which make him a treat to watch.

Liverpool do have a wealth of attacking talents in their ranks, but signing Isco would make them a much better team, capable of challenging for major honours next season. But it would be difficult for the Reds to lure the Spain international, with claiming Juventus and City also remain interested in signing him.

But make no mistake, Isco is a top playmaker and given the right environment, he could become one of the great attacking midfielders of his generation. He has the pedigree to succeed in the Premier League and his dazzling performances in the first half of this season for Real Madrid are a testament to his qualities that he could become a key player for the Reds.

Without any shadow of a doubt, Isco would be the perfect man to fill the boots of Coutinho in summer.

Liverpool could do with another quality midfielder in their side, despite having several options in the side.

However, Adam Lallana has had a tough time related to injuries while James Milner isn’t getting any younger at 33.

Jurgen Klopp has pulled off some great cheap signings with Joel Matip joining on a free while Andy Robertson and Xherdan Shaqiri have been smart purchases.

The midfielder lauded our efforts at reaching the Champions League final last season and claimed we were growing together.

Winning the Premier League in consecutive seasons is extremely tough, something that Toure touched upon. The former Barcelona midfielder spoke about Manchester City keeping hold of their title this season before adding that he was scared of the Reds:

“This year I know everybody was asking the question of what City are going to do this year.

“And I think we have to see what’s going to happen.

“To be honest, Liverpool are in good, good shape at the moment and I’m very scared of them.

“Liverpool are looking very, very scary this year.”

Mohamed Salah (L) and Virgil van Dijk celebrate for Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk played his 50th game for Liverpool against Brighton, and the Reds picked up all three points thanks to Mohamed Salah’s winner.

The Reds also kept a clean sheet, something that the defender would cherish and the Liverpool website shared some interesting facts from the Dutchman’s 50 games under Jurgen Klopp.

Fortress Anfield

Liverpool established their second longest run without conceding a league goal at Anfield in 2018. The Reds did not concede for 918 minutes as Callum Paterson scored for Cardiff in October to break a streak that started in Feb.

The Dutchman was the only defender to have played in all games that lasted the run.

24 clean sheets

This has got to be the best record of them all with almost half of the games Van Dijk played in yielding a clean sheet.

This season has been better with 13 clean sheets from 22 Premier League games as the Reds have tightened up the back thanks to the signing of Alisson.

Dominating the opposition

Van Dijk has an incredible success percentage when it comes to duels, with the defender winning 71.69% of the 445 contested duels.

The defender also leads the team in clearances (272), blocks (21) and interceptions (59).

Incredible passing numbers

Van Dijk has attempted more passes (3,643) than any other Liverpool player and has an accuracy of 88.64%.

33 wins

The Reds have been supreme this season with Van Dijk leading from the back, and we have lost just one game in the Premier League too.

Liverpool have won 33 of the games that Van Dijk has played in with seven draws and 10 defeats so far.
