Liverpool who have been impressive this season are set to spend big in the summer transfer window in order to challenge Manchester City for the title next season should the Citizens emerge the League Champions by the end of the current campaign.
According to Talk Sports pundit Quinn, the Reds are willing to upgrade their team ahead of next season and Jurgen Klopp is looking at the prospect of adding at least two players to each department.
The pundit also admits Manchester city are in the class of their own but he believes it would take lots of spending and time before the Merseyside club could Rival the Citizens for next season’s League trophy.
Liverpool have reportedly linked with a move for Wilfred Ndidi and Jorginho as they seek for Emre Can’s replacement but they will need to spend big if they must sign either of the two centre midfielders next summer.
Jurgen Klopp will welcome Naby Keita to Anfield stadium next summer and Quinn was very excited that the young and impressive will be moving to the Merseyside club ahead of the season so as to help the team at the middle of the pitch.
Though teams are still competing for glory across the world but Quinn revealed that Premier League has already been won by Pep Guardiola’s team who are 15 points ahead of Manchester United who occupy the second position.
City will clinch the Premier League trophy as early as Saturday if they are victorious over their neighbour Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Liverpool duo to fight for PFA award
So far, two Liverpool players are qualified to fight for the award of the best Premier League player, according to Sky Sports pundit Clinton Morrison.
According to the pundit, Senegal international Sadio Mane and defender Virgil Van Dijk have done well to contend for the award after an impressive season so far. The two Liverpool stars have been consistent in their fine form without any obstruction as a result of injuries or sort.
Virgil Van Dijk who left Southampton in January 2018 has been in sensational form for the Reds and has established himself as one of the best defenders in the league. He has been hailed for bringing the stability in the manager Jurgen Klopp’s defence. This is no doubt a major reason why they are able to challenge for the league title.
Also, Sadio Mane has been in fine form for the Reds team. The goal against Fulham makes it his 11th goal in his last 11 games for Liverpool to set a record of the highest Senegalese goal scorer in the Premier League per season.
So far, he has scored 17 goals in the Premier League and made 1 assist to make him the man of the moment for the Reds team.
Should Liverpool go ahead to win the league title, there is no doubt that Mane would be considered.
Van Dijk makes spectacular claim after Fulham win
There is no doubt that the Fulham win for Liverpool is a big relief as they are now confident that they can further push for the title until the end of the season.
The game was almost lost for the Reds after the former Southampton defender made committed a blunder which cost his side a goal but there was still an opportunity for the manager Jurgen Klopp side to correct the wrong as they ended the game in a 2-1 win.
All thanks to goals from Sadio Mane and James Milner’s penalty, Liverpool are now top on the Premier League table with two points clear off Man City but the Citizens still have a game at hand to recover their top spot.
This makes the race very tough and unlikely for both sides but Virgil Van Dijk says his team can win the Premier League title.
He noted that his team are in a fantastic position and they enjoy all that is happening as they are focused that they will smile at the end of the season.
However, Virgil Van Dijk confessed that they have a big task ahead to win over Man City as well as tackle the games in the Champions League.
Liverpool receive damning message from club president over 27-year-old star
Liverpool have been told by Italian Serie A outfit Napoli that they will not be allowed to land the signature of striker Lorenzo Insigne ahead of the coming summer transfer window.
The Reds team have been linked with the star player for a long period of time but they have not been successful in their bid and there are fears that the situation will remain the same after Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis made it clear that the player is going nowhere.
Lorenzo Insigne has been impressive for Napoli this season, having scored 13 goals and handed 7 assists across all competitions to make him the main man for manager Carlo Ancelotti. It would be an impossible deal to have him leave the club at the end of the season.
The Napoli president has made it clear that Lorenzo Insigne is not in the market for sale, hence the club will not listen to any offers for him.
The president hailed Lorenzo Insigne as an attractive player who is extraordinary, hence there is no way they would want to lose him because there are only a few players like him
Meanwhile, suggestions are that the Reds will have a more robust attack with Lorenzo Insigne should they succeed in convincing Napoli.
Zidane orders Madrid to get him Liverpool race
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has reportedly ordered the club to secure him the signature of Liverpool forward Sadio Mane ahead of the coming summer transfer window.
The France international boss is having his second spell with the Spanish giants and wants to bring in some quality players that will help him return the team to winning ways after suffering some inconsistent results in the past.
This season has been a bad one for the Los Blancos as they were humiliated out of the Champions League by Ajax and they have also crashed out of the Copa Del Rey which makes them ready for a campaign without a trophy, knowing that they are 12 points off the title race.
Senegal international has caught the attention of Zinedine Zidane, who returned to the club last week and there are fears that the Merseyside outfit will have to fight to keep the inform player because the La Liga giants will make efforts to lure him away.
Sadio Mane has now scored 11 goals in his last 11 games for Liverpool which makes him the man of the moment, a development that has caught the attention of Madrid boss.
However, suggestions are that the decision would be left to Sadio to make but he still has a running contract with the Reds team.
Liverpool get £70m fee for 27-year-old target
English Premier League outfit Liverpool have been told they will have to pay the sum of £70 million to be able to secure the signature of their target James Rodriquez who is currently playing in the German Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.
James Rodriquez is currently on a 2-year loan with the Bundesliga giants which is expected to expire at the end of the season.
The Reds have indicated interest in his signature as it is unclear if he would be welcomed back at the Spanish capital especially with the return of manager Zinedine Zidane to the club.
The Bundesliga outfit have got the option to secure the service of the Colombia international on a permanent deal but that will be an option for Real Madrid as they are ready to cash in on the star player.
There are suggestions that manager Jurgen Klopp seeks to have additions at the club so as to be able to create options in his attack for Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino who are not in good goalscoring form at the moment.
However, Real Madrid have dropped the hint that James Rodriquez is for sale but they will not take anything less from Liverpool than the £70 million asking price.
The big EPL record broken by Sadio Mane
Liverpool are still enjoying a good moment especially as they returned to the top in the Premier League table after a 2 – 1 win over Fulham away from home at the Craven Cottage.
With Man City involved in the FA Cup at the weekend, they now have a game at hand but returned back to the second position, all thanks to goals from Sadio Mane and James Milner.
Senegal international Sadio Mane is in hot form for the Reds as he has now delivered 11 goals in the last 11 games for the Merseyside outfit.
The fine form of the Liverpool star has been viewed as a blessing as it is coming when last season hero and Egypt international Mohamed Salah is struggling to find the back of the net.
Sadio Mane has been consistent, including in the Champions League where he scored a brace against German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich to secure a qualification to the quarter finals.
However, Sadio Mane has already scored the highest goals in a Premier League by a Senegalese player in the history of the competition. There are suggestions he will do more before the end of the season.
However, the star player is hopeful to win the first EPL title as a Liverpool player.
How Sadio Mane became the man of the moment for Liverpool
Senegal international forward Sadio Mane has been at the center of Liverpool wins for the past week with his red hot form and that has been the lifting up for the manager Jurgen Klopp team.
Yet again, the star player helped his team with a 2 – 1 win over relegation-threatened Fulham away from the Anfield to return top of the summit with his first goal.
Although, the win was threatened by an error committed by Virgil Van Dijk which ensured that his goal was cancelled but there was still an opportunity to have the mistakes corrected to have a second goal for a complete three points capture.
However, the Senegal international has now scored 11 goals in 11 games to make him an important player in the Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Also, Sadio Mane ’s goal against Fulham makes it his 17th Premier League goals to level up with Egyptian international and Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah and one more to catch up with Man City’s Sergio Aguero.
Meanwhile, popular suggestions are that Liverpool will be helped by the form of Sadio Mane for the title challenge but that will not stop the contest for the title from going down to the end of the season.
Why Andy Robertson is unavailable for international duty
Liverpool left full-back Andy Robertson is reportedly out of the international assignment with his Scotland national team for their opening Euro 2020 qualifier against Kazakhstan.
The Reds star is the latest player to pull out of the Thursday game after claims that he will require a dental surgery which will make him unavailable for the Thursday but he could be available three days later when they feature against San Marino.
Although, Andy Robertson was available for Liverpool’s 2 – 1 win over Fulham on Sunday and that will be his last game before his surgery. The Scotland captain would be replaced by Kieran Tierney.
However, before Andy Robertson withdrew from the game, the Scotland Football Association had confirmed the absence of Blackburn captain Charlie Mulgrew, Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer and Sheffield midfielder Barry Bannan.
Meanwhile, Andy Robertson will be available for Liverpool when they return to continue the contest for the Premier League title at the end of the international break as they now top the league table ahead of Man City.
The Scotland international captain is optimistic that his Liverpool team will be able to deliver a title this season as they have their eyes set on the Premier League and the Champions League as well.
Jurgen Klopp reacts to Liverpool win
Merseyside outfit Liverpool were lucky to have secured all three points against Fulham in their Sunday Premier League clash and that has to be talked about by the club manager Jurgen Klopp.
Netherlands international central defender Virgil Van Dijk had committed a blunder in the game to have headed the ball behind to Alisson Becker but he was unable to get it through as he was punished to concede a goal.
In his reaction to the 2-1 win, manager Jurgen Klopp described it as an average game which ended up with a sensational result to make their victory sweet.
However, the German manager stated that football can be slow at times and not go in the direction it was planned, noting that he did not see any panic as regards the game because his team had reacted to the game positively.
The former Borussia Dortmund man stated that the players have longed been in this situation of having to retain the top spot which means they will no longer be under any pressure as anticipated.
Howbeit, Jurgen Klopp has not won any title since he took over as Liverpool boss, the past three years and has got an opportunity to break the deadlock at the end of the season.
How Virgil almost ruined Liverpool’s season
Liverpool’s best defender Vigil Van Dijk could have ruined the Reds’ season on Sunday after a blunder he committed against Fulham at the Craven Cottage when he headed the ball behind to goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
Vigil Van Dijk showed relief when his side eventually won the game as his mistake ensured Fulham’s only goal of the game.
The Merseyside outfit are now two points above Man City to top the league table and continue the press for the season’s title.
Vigil Van Dijk noted that the most important thing is the fact that his side won the game, stressing that mistakes happen in football but it is always better when you have the opportunity to have it corrected.
The Netherlands international central defender stated that he is not giving an excuse for his mistakes because he should have handled it better.
However, Liverpool are now back in the race and there is no doubt that the contest will go down until the last game of the season with all indications.
There is a bid by the Merseyside outfit to end their Premier League title drought as the last time they won was in 1990. They have got a chance this season with the win against Fulham.
