“It’s a strange coincidence, isn’t it?” – Liverpool star rubbishes rumours linking him with French giants

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has ripped into the rumours that suggested he wanted to leave the Reds for Paris Saint-Germain. The summer signing from Monaco has slowly gotten accustomed to our style and has proved himself in the midfield.

The Mirror reports that Fabinho was linked with a move to PSG when Liverpool were to play the French champions in the Champions League.

The midfielder was asked about the move to Paris and told L’Equipe (h/t Mirror):

“I never thought of going elsewhere. I know a lot of things were written in the newspapers, but it wasn’t true. What’s funny is that this PSG loan story came out just before our Champions League match [in November].

“And I had already experienced a similar story the day before the final of the Coupe de la Ligue between PSG and Monaco [in March 2018]. It’s a strange coincidence, isn’t it?”

The Brazilian was linked with PSG during his time at Monaco, as per the report, and Fabinho admitted that if he wanted to join the French giants, he would have done a year ago.

However, it was great that things did not work out for the former Monaco man as he is proving his worth to the Reds this season.

Fabinho has done a great job as a defensive midfielder and his passing range is pretty good. Last night, he played as a centre-back alongside Virgil van Dijk and excelled in the role.

It was not easy going up against Glenn Murray of Brighton & Hove Albion and the Brazilian did a great job in ensuring that we kept the Seagulls from scoring in the 1-0 win.

Latest Liverpool news: Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum score for the Netherlands against Belarus

The Netherlands made the perfect start in their Euro 2020 qualifying group as they thrashed Belarus 4-0.

Memphis Depay was the star of the night as he scored the first goal in the first minute of the game before his backheel pass allowed Georginio Wijnaldum to find the back of the net in the 21st minute.

The Liverpool midfielder won a penalty which Depay converted and Virgil van Dijk also scored from a cross late on.

Big games coming up for the Netherlands and Liverpool

Van Dijk and Wijnaldum seem to have made it a habit of scoring in internationals. The Liverpool defender scored against Germany earlier in the season, and their next game is a clash against the same opponents.

Germany are yet to play a game in their Euro 2020 qualifying phase and this should be a great clash before the international break ends.

The Reds don’t have an easy game after the break with Tottenham visiting Anfield on 31 March. Liverpool need to keep winning their games and put the pressure on second-placed Manchester City.

The Cityzens have a game in hand on us but we hold a two-point lead over them.

Van Dijk has been the player of the season for the Reds thus far, while Wijnaldum did a great job in the first half of the season.

Several fans were happy that the pair came out unscathed from the tie and were pleased with their win.

Why a move for this Argentine star would take Liverpool’s attack to the next level

Liverpool opinion: Why signing Paulo Dybala would be incredible for Liverpool’s attack

Argentine sensation Paulo Dybala has been linked with a move as Liverpool consider a summer bid for the Juventus star, according to Tuttosport (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The 25-year-old joined the Italian giants from Palermo and has gone from strength to strength in Turin.

Dybala has won the Serie A thrice with Juventus and also has three Coppa Italia titles to his name. The 25-year-old is yet to win something with the national side, but that is a different story.

Liverpool could do with more options in attack

The Argentine is one of the brightest sparks in the Serie A, but he hasn’t been prolific in front of the net this season.

Dybala only has nine goals in all competitions with four assists in this campaign, and the limelight has focused on Cristiano Ronaldo since the move from Real Madrid.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have had a fantastic season with several players chipping in. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have 17 goals each in the Premier League. Virgil van Dijk is one of the best defenders in the world while Alisson has done his bit in keeping us in the title race.

However, the Reds need to bring in quality options for their front three.

Roberto Firmino, Salah and Mane are great as a trio but as soon as one of them is injured, we end up losing a lot of attacking ability.

Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge are decent players but they don’t have the same impact on the pitch as the trio.

Dybala has the ability to play across the front-line or just behind the striker and would be that addition that takes our attack to the next level.

It would provide Jurgen Klopp scope to mix things around with the attack, and also allow the German to rest the attackers in certain games.

The Reds have been extremely reliant on Salah over the past year, and his lack of goals in recent weeks has been taken care off by Mane’s brilliant form.

The Argentine is young, tenacious and has the quality to shine for a team like ours. It will be interesting to see if Juventus are willing to deal with us for the attacker, but there is no doubt Dybala would increase the competition for places at Liverpool and could raise the game of the other players.

Latest Liverpool news: Eden Hazard wants to emulate good friend Mohamed Salah

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard is having another fruitful season at Chelsea. The Belgian has scored 13 times and has 11 assists to his name this season in the Premier League.

The former Lille man was speaking with NBC sports and claimed that Mohamed Salah is one of the players he tries to emulate (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“Mo Salah is one of my good friends and he is doing something incredible.

“I try to look at this player and I try to reach that level.”

The 28-year-old has been the star for Chelsea over many years while Salah has done incredibly well since signing from AS Roma.

Salah has 24 goals in all competitions this season with 17 in the Premier League.

Salah helping Liverpool towards glory

The Egyptian broke several scoring records last season as we reached the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Salah is just one behind Sergio Aguero this season in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot, but we are two points ahead of Manchester City.

The Egyptian hasn’t scored in his last seven games, but Liverpool are in a great position in the Champions League too with a two-legged quarter-final against Porto.

Hazard, for his part, seems to be doing it all for the Blues as they try to finish in the top four. However, Chelsea are currently sixth in the Premier League.

The Belgian has always been one of the best in the Premier League, and it is proof of Salah’s quality that Hazard is trying to copy the Egyptian.
