Liverpool would have to fork out £62million if they are to sign Fiorentina’s rising star Federico Chiesa, according to reports from Italy.
Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Metro) claims that the Serie A side is ready to sell their starlet but will only do so if a club meets the asking price for Chiesa.
It isn’t just Liverpool who want the 20-year-old as the report claims that Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested in the Italian. The Serie A club had slapped a price tag of £44m on the attacker but have upped the price after a lot of interest.
Chiesa can play in a number of positions but played most of his games last season on the right-wing. The youngster can play either as an attacking midfielder or as a wide man and is comfortable on either side of the pitch.
The youngster’s output wasn’t all that great, with 6 goals and 5 assists from 36 games in the Serie A, but he did make four appearances for the national side too and his last appearance came in the 1-1 draw against the Dutch.
While Chiesa is a talent to keep an eye on, it will be a big risk for Klopp to sign him as the youngster has never played in the Premier League and also his asking price is extremely high.
There will be a lot of interest for the 20-year-old from a number of clubs but hopefully, we can stay clear of the Italian and bring someone who would be a guaranteed hit at Anfield.
Liverpool target doesn’t rule out moving to the Premier League in the future
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.
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.
The 20-year-old would not come on the cheap, however, Klopp can make the American better at Anfield. It will be interesting to see what happens in the winter window, and if we get Pulisic, it would be the blockbuster deal of the January window,
“Looks sad, unwilling”, “Cheer up mate” – Some Liverpool fans believe star attacker is unhappy playing for national side
Mohamed Salah was recently in the news after being caught wearing a Playboy shirt. While many commented on his style, the Egyptian posted yet another image before the international break.
Salah is set to play for Egypt in an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tunisia on Friday, and the pressure would be on the Liverpool man to get the three points for the Pharaohs.
The Liverpool attacker shared an image suggesting he was ready to play for the national side.

However, some of his Twitter followers weren’t happy with the picture he selected and believed the 26-year-old was unhappy playing for the Pharaohs.
Salah has been exceptional for club and country in recent years with Egypt making it to the World Cup in the summer.
The Reds reached the Champions League final but Salah had to be subbed after 30 minutes due to an injury.
The 26-year-old has 11 goals for club and country this season and will be important for both sides throughout the campaign.
However, the fans weren’t letting go of the picture easily, and here are some of their reactions from Twitter.
lol the pic tells about how you feel joining national duty

Liverpool target’s agent claims player is happy at current club
Ousmane Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has claimed that the Frenchman is not looking to leave Barcelona.
“The club is happy with Ousmane.
“Dembele doesn’t care about criticisms. Some of them are unfair. He is 20, he plays for Barcelona and he had a great start to the season.”
The agent further claimed that the player has to do better and the Frenchman was sick for a while which led to a few controversies.
Sissoko added that the national team manager and Barcelona’s Eric Abidal were happy with the attacker.
“Ousmane keeps working for a big club, the manager likes him and the same goes for Deschamps. I know Abidal is also very happy with how he is training and working for his club.”
Dembele seems to be doing better when compared to the same time frame last season. The Frenchman has scored four goals from 11 La Liga games and has one from two Champions League ties.
The former Borussia Dortmund player would be an amazing signing for the Reds, but we would have to pay a huge amount to sign him from Barcelona.
The 21-year-old would certainly improve our attack, and it will be interesting to see what our activity would be in the winter window.
