Liverpool FC transfer news: Carragher wants Reds to sign Maddison

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher wants the Reds to sign James Maddison of Leicester City.

The English midfielder had a fine debut season for the Foxes after joining from Norwich City in the previous campaign.

Maddison was excellent in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend and created several chances for the away side.

James Maddison

Liverpool didn’t sign a senior outfield player in the summer but Carragher believed that the Leicester City man is the one that the Reds should target (h/t Mirror):

“I think he is the one player outside of the top six who Liverpool should be looking at.”

Carragher was speaking on Sky Sports (h/t Mirror) and believed that Maddison is the player who could take us to the next step even though he would cost a lot of money:

“People have been talking about Coutinho coming back, but obviously that hasn’t happened as he has gone to Bayern Munich, but if you are looking in the Premier League, yes he will cost a lot of money, but he should be the one Liverpool are looking at if you are going to that next step up.”

An expensive signing for Klopp’s side?

The Reds have several midfield options in their current team but there isn’t one player who can create chances for the attackers.

Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are two attack-minded midfielders but they aren’t as creative as Maddison.

The 22-year-old has grown since his move to the King Power Stadium and it will be interesting to see how he performs this season.

Brendan Rodgers has worked well with young talent in the past and our former manager seems to be getting the best out of Maddison.

Sander Berge

Genk want €25m for Liverpool target Sander Berge

Sander Berge has been recently linked with Liverpool after featuring for Genk in the Champions League (h/t Express).

The 21-year-old Norwegian faced us twice in the Champions League and has also attracted the interest of other clubs.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Calciomercato) claims that Napoli have made the 21-year-old their priority signing in the coming months.

Napoli are facing a bit of a crisis in recent weeks with the players also facing off against club president Aurelio de Laurentiis.

Berge came through the ranks at Vaalerenga and moved to Genk in 2017. The Belgians have slapped a €25million price-tag on his head and the report claims Napoli will make a move in January (h/t Calciomercato).

However, due to Napoli’s asking price, Napoli might shelf their move till the summer (h/t Calciomercato).

Berge is also a regular for the Norway national team, and it will be interesting to see if he is on the move soon.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was seen speaking to the player after the Champions League clash at Anfield too (h/t Express).

Big decisions lie for Berge

Berge has to take the right decision regarding his future with first-team football a requirement too.

Napoli have done well in recent seasons despite making managerial changes in the past.

However, Liverpool have also handed chances to young players under Klopp, and we could do with more talents coming in the future.

Boost for Liverpool as this defender’s knee injury might not be too serious

Joe Gomez

Joe Gomez’s England injury isn’t considered serious after knee scan

Joe Gomez’s time with England during this international break was cut short after injuring his knee in an accidental collision.

The Liverpool defender has seen a lot happen over the past week at the Three Lions camp. He was involved in a bust-up with Raheem Sterling which saw a cut appear below his right eye.

Sterling accepted his mistake in the bust-up but there was more to come. The Liverpool defender came off the bench against Montenegro and was booed by some sections of the England fan.

Gomez has had a tough time with Liverpool too as Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren are ahead of him in the pecking order.

He did come on for the final few minutes against Manchester City, and we need all our players to be fit for the rest of the season.

Dominic King of the Daily Mail allayed some fears about the extent of Gomez’s injury.

The journalist tweeted about Gareth Southgate’s update regarding the 22-year-old and how it wasn’t serious:

Gomez’s injury troubles

The youngster has had his issues with injuries in the past too. Last season, the centre-back suffered a fracture in the win over Burnley and was out for almost six months.

His initial recovery didn’t go well and the youngster had to go under the knife. Liverpool had several problems in the centre-back spot then and fielded Fabinho in some games.

Joel Matip

This season has also been tough on the defenders with Joel Matip suffering a problem too. The Cameroon centre-back hasn’t played for us since the 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

That leaves us with just Virgil van Dijk and Lovren as the fit centre-backs, and hopefully, Gomez is not out for long.

Paris Saint-Germain enter the race for Liverpool target Jadon Sancho

Paris Saint-Germain have also entered the race for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, according to the Express (h/t Daily Mail).

Liverpool have been linked with Sancho recently (h/t Liverpool Echo) and the player would not be available on the cheap.

Big price on Sancho’s head

The 19-year-old has taken the Bundesliga by storm since joining from Manchester City.

Sancho is now a regular for the England national team and has a couple of goals for the Three Lions in this campaign too.

The English winger can play on either side and has four goals and five assists to his name for Dortmund.

However, Dortmund are open to an exit in the next summer and could sell him for over £100m (h/t Daily Mail).

Sancho has also been singled out for criticism in decent weeks by Dortmund. The winger was also been fined and dropped for the clash against Borussia Monchengladbach.

It will be interesting to see what happens with the English talent in the summer. Liverpool could do with more attacking options to provide competition and cover for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

However, spending over £100m certainly is a big ask even if we have spent huge on Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk recently.
