Adam Lallana Liverpool training

Adam Lallana of Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that Adam Lallana has a role to play at the club despite several injuries in recent seasons. The 30-year-old has just three starts to his name this season and hasn’t registered a goal or an assist this season.

The Reds lead the Premier League table and Klopp believes Lallana is in great shape. The manager added that the Englishman could play four games in a day because of his love for the game.

Klopp further claimed the player always accepts the decision of the manager (h/t Daily Star):

“He is in the best moment since I’ve known him as a person and he will have a big part of our season. That’s cool.

“He always accepts my decisions but then it is about what you make of them, if you are in or out.”

Klopp has mixed things up in the Liverpool team this season, with Naby Keita and Fabinho starting several games. Xherdan Shaqiri has been an excellent signing too, with the Swiss coming off the bench and scoring some important goals.

Lallana’s injury problems started last season but he is possibly the most technically gifted player we have in the team.

Liverpool star’s £4.5m-per-year demand could be a problem as two Serie A clubs are interested

Latest Liverpool transfer news: Dejan Lovren’s salary is a problem for Serie A clubs

CalcioNapoli24 (h/t Daily Star) claims that Napoli are interested in the services of Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren. The report claims that AC Milan and Napoli are offering Lovren the chance of regular football.

The Croatian fell down the pecking order at Liverpool last season, with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip preferred to partner Virgil van Dijk.

The 29-year-old Lovren started 11 Premier League games and did a decent job throughout the campaign, however, the lack of games has left Lovren considering his future, according to the report.

Napoli can offer Champions League football for the centre-back while AC Milan will participate in the Europa League next season.

The problem for both clubs lies in Lovren’s wage demands. The report claims that the Croatian wants £4.5m-per-year in wages and has two years left on his Liverpool contract.

Milan News (h/t Daily Star) adds that Lovren’s representatives were in Milan to discuss a possible move to the San Siro. The report claims that Lovren is interested in playing for the Milan giants and a deal worth £25m is being discussed.

Klopp would have to enter the market to replace Lovren

Lovren has been a quality member of the side and has always given it his all. Should he decide to leave for regular football, we have to sign a replacement. Liverpool had some defensive headaches, with fractures for Matip and Gomez last season, while Lovren also suffered a few injuries.

The Reds cannot go into the season with only three senior centre-backs, and it will be interesting to see what actions are taken regarding Lovren in the summer.

Liverpool FC transfer news: Ajax want £30m for Hakim Ziyech amidst Liverpool interest

De Telegraaf (h/t Mirror) claims that Eredivisie champions Ajax want just over £30m for star attacker Hakim Ziyech.

The Moroccan international was one of their best performers in an incredible campaign as they reached the Champions League semi-final.

The report adds that there could be a battle for the Moroccan as Arsenal and Liverpool have been linked with the attacker earlier.

Serie A side AS Roma have already bid for the 26-year-old while there is interest in Ziyech from Germany and Spain (h/t Mirror).

Marc Overmars, Ajax’s director of football, added that Ziyech would leave in the summer, but the report claims that the Moroccan isn’t keen on any of the bids that the Dutch giants have received.

The 26-year-old scored 19 goals and provided 16 assists for Ajax last season. Ziyech can play in several positions but his best performances came when he was deployed as a winger.

Liverpool could do with a versatile attacker

Ajax’s asking price isn’t too high given the performances of Ziyech last season, and he would make an excellent signing for the Reds. The Moroccan can provide cover for several positions and can take up the role of an attacking midfielder under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have a great team at the moment and a few quality additions could improve us further.

Ziyech would not be a starter for the Reds, but he could be a game-changer off the bench in some of the tighter clashes.

Latest Liverpool news: Virgil van Dijk posts incredible message as he plans for next season

Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk capped off a brilliant season by winning the Champions League. The Dutch superstar did suffer heartbreak in the competition last season as we were beaten by Real Madrid.

The Reds were excellent in the Premier League too but missed out on the title by one point. Van Dijk was in the middle of all good things for the Reds as he helped us to the best defensive record in the league.

The 27-year-old also led the Netherlands to the Nations League final but lost to Portugal. Van Dijk posted an emotional message regarding the season where he claimed that winning the Champions League was a dream.

The Liverpool centre-back added that he is looking forward to more success with club and country, and thanked the fans for their support.

Van Dijk turns Liverpool around

The Dutch defender has been one of the best signings we have made in the Premier League era. His presence at the back has transformed our defence and the defender barely seems ruffled when the opposition attack.

Liverpool did not have a great defence during the first two years of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure but Van Dijk has made us incredibly difficult to break down.

The Dutchman doesn’t make mistakes at the back too, and he should be set for several great years at Anfield. As the defender goes away on a break, many Liverpool fans shared their love for the 27-year-old on Twitter.
