transfer news: Dossena claims Dybala would be a better fit at
Liverpool

Former Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena isn’t sure about Paulo Dybala’s possible move to Manchester United.

The Liverpool Echo claims that the Juventus attacker is in talks with the Red Devils over a move in the summer as Romelu Lukaku could go the other way.

The 25-year-old Argentine is one of the best in the Serie A, but Dossena believes a move to Anfield or even Manchester City would be better.

Dossena was speaking to Tuttomercato and had some harsh words for the Red Devils (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“We are talking about another world football superpower. Manchester United are not ready to win big in Europe so he may as well stay at Juve, hence his vacillations.

“If the team in question had been Liverpool or Manchester City, in my opinion he would have had no doubts.

“United are more of a construction site at the moment, and for this reason I understand indecision -I too would be on 50/50.”

The Italian didn’t have a great time during his spell at Liverpool but he did score that incredible fourth goal in a 4-1 win over the Red Devils at Old Trafford years ago.

Reds not looking
to make big moves

Liverpool haven’t made any big signings this summer and have brought in a couple of talented youngsters.

Dybala could be a great player at Anfield, and he would fit well into the scheme of things under Jurgen Klopp.

The move to United is a little confusing given the lack of Champions League football at Old Trafford.

United are also in a rebuilding phase under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and it is unlikely they will challenge for top honours next season too.

Liverpool are in a great position despite not making huge moves in the window, and it will be interesting to see how we compete with Manchester City this season.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!

Former Liverpool hero warns that Reds star’s form could dip later in the season due to this reason

Latest Liverpool news: Barnes warns Mane’s form could dip later in the season

Sadio Mane has been a machine for Liverpool over the past two seasons. The Senegal star was involved in the World Cup, played almost every game for us last season and then took the national side to the AFCON final.

Barely three weeks after the final, he was back at Liverpool and came off the bench to face Norwich. Mane has bagged three goals in his last two games and should feature for us against Arsenal at the weekend.

Former Liverpool star John Barnes claims that Mane is in fine form due to a lack of rest for the attacker, and we could pay for that later in the season.

Barnes was speaking to the Sport Review and claimed that Klopp would be able to manage this situation (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“Maybe one of the reasons Sadio Mane in fine form is because he’s fitter than everybody else because he hasn’t had the time off, which he could pay for later on in the season, come Christmas time.

“But I’m sure that Klopp will be able to manage that situation.”

Liverpool’s over-reliance on their forwards

Klopp has rotated his midfield several times over the past two seasons but isn’t afforded the same luxury when it comes to the forwards.

Roberto Firmino only missed games when he was injured in the previous campaign, while Mohamed Salah also played in most of the games.

Liverpool have Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi as cover for the pair, but they aren’t on the same level as the African stars.

Salah and Mane are extremely durable, given the number of games played over the past two years, and they seem to be performing at a high level and barely look tired.

Latest Liverpool transfer news: Klopp doesn’t confirm Lovren’s future at club

Jurgen Klopp was speaking to the press ahead of the weekend clash against Arsenal.

The German touched upon a range of topics from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s return to Alisson and Naby Keita’s injuries.

There was some transfer talk during the conference as Klopp was asked about Dejan Lovren’s future.

The Croatian has been linked with a move away in the summer (h/t Calciomercato) and Liverpool cannot buy a player until the winter window.

The European transfer window closes on 2nd September, and Klopp was not going to share any details regarding Lovren’s future (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“No comment on Lovren. A potential transfer or not, I don’t want to talk about it.”

Liverpool need to keep four quality centre-backs

Losing Lovren now would be a big blow as we would only have three recognised senior centre-backs until January. This is a risk that Klopp should not take and hopefully, we can keep hold of the Croatian until the end of the season.

Lovren is fourth-choice at the club, thanks to the form shown by Joel Matip and Joe Gomez but should feature in some of our cup games this season.

Klopp has always been coy with regards to players coming in or going out of the club and hopefully, we aren’t left to rue Lovren’s sale this month.

Latest Liverpool news: Adekanye given reprieve as Liverpool dispute transfer

Bobby Adekanye left Liverpool in the summer to join Lazio in the Serie A. The former Barcelona and Ajax youngster left on a free without making a senior appearance for the Reds.

However, Liverpool believe that the Italians broke the rules to sign the Dutch attacker and opened a case that could have seen the 20-year-old not play for Lazio in the season opener, according to Calciomercato.

FIFA have acted upon this complaint and announced that the youngster has been granted a reprieve and can play for Lazio against Sampdoria in the first game of the season (h/t Calciomercato).

The report adds that the youngster can feature for Lazio until the dispute is completed, and Adekanye could feature for the Eagles on Sunday.

Adekanye struggles to break into the senior side

The attacker has come through the ranks of several quality academies in his short career but he was never able to impress Jurgen Klopp enough to feature in the first-team.

The youngster didn’t feature much in our pre-season this summer and Klopp already has quality wingers in the first-team at the moment.

Impressive youngsters such as Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent can’t break into the side either, with both players spending time away on loan last season.

It would have been difficult for Adekanye to feature for the senior side this season and hopefully, he gets more games at Lazio.
