Liverpool were able to capture Fred’s signature from Monaco last night for £41.7m, according to report from the Merseyside club.
Despite signing the impressive midfielder, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not yet contended with the players he has at the midfield positions.
According to French media outlet L’Equippe, the German manager remains coy on getting Lyon’s playmaker Nabil Fekir in the summer.
In the report, Klopp is willing to break the bank for his signature ahead of next season. Fekir is valued at £61m by the Guardian and Klopp is ready to meet his price tag before the start of next season.
However, The Times are reporting that the Reds have joined Manchester United in the race for Monaco’s £90m-rated player Thomas Lemar.
Thomas Lemar is being tracked by José Mourinho since January, and he is ready to reignite interest in the Frenchman’s services in the summer.
With Naby Keita — who will join the Reds from RB Leipzig, Fabinho, Lemar, Lallana, Mane, Firmino, Salah and Fekir, you would imagine how many goals Liverpool would score in the coming season.
Let keep our fingers crossed and see how Liverpool fare in their negotiations with Lyon and Monaco for Fekir and Lemar’s signature respectively
Man United To Revive Interest In Real Madrid Star
Premier League giants Manchester United will reportedly revive their interest in Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.
The Welsh international star has been a long-term target of the Red Devils dating back to his time with Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester United were keen on signing him before he left Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid for a then world-record fee of around £85.3m.
The new interest of Manchester United in Gareth Bale was revealed by The Sun who claim that the Red Devils could sign him if England fail to negotiate a deal with the European Union (EU) as regards Brexit.
The failure to agree on a deal on the part of England will mean that Gareth Bale will have to leave Real Madrid and Spain thus paving the way for Manchester United to swoop for him.
Gareth Bale has been a wonderful servant for Real Madrid in his almost six-year stay with the Champions League holders.
The 29-year-old was part of the Real Madrid team that won a third successive Champions League title via a 3-1 victory over Premier League table toppers Liverpool in their final clash in Kiev.
Bale produced a Man-of-the-Match (MotM) display as he scored two goals to lead Real Madrid to victory.
Chelsea tackle Manchester City for Tottenham’s want-away star
Chelsea are in crunch battle with Manchester City for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen who is reportedly ready to end his stay at Wembley stadium this month.
The former 26-year-old playmaker still has a running contract with Spurs until 2020 but the North London club have offered him a contract extension which he reportedly turned down.
According to the Sun, the Danish star is willing to end ties with Mauricio Pochetino’s men and he’s far from reaching an agreement with the club’s hierarchy over a new deal.
Having seen the turn out of events between the two parties, top European clubs are keeping a close eye on Eriksen’s signature as they hope to lure the pacey player out of Wembley.
Spanish media outlet AS reported on Monday that La Liga side Real Madrid are keenly interested in the Denmark international and Santiago Valverde could make an official bid for his services this week.
The Santiago Bernabeu outfits are far from last season’s form and Solari is willing to add some world-class stars, including the Tottenham man, to his squad this month.
Chelsea are also linked with Eriksen’s services as Sarri continues to find a solution to his attacking problems.
In the report, AS suggested the former Napoli manager is willing to release Davide Zappacosta — who has fallen out of favor at Stamford Bridge — to any suitor in order to create space for the Tottenham man.
However, no club made an official approach towards signing the player and he still remains an integral part of Mauricio Pochetino’s side.
95% done deal, Arsenal to sign £14m-rated playmaker on Monday
Arsenal are close to completing their much-anticipated move for Spanish midfielder Denis Suarez who is wanted out of Camp Nou this month.
Daily Star report that the Gunners have reached a £14.2m agreement with the Catalans and they could confirm the player’s signature as soon as next week Monday.
The 25-year-old midfielder isn’t rated by Ernesto Valverde as the manager often left out of his match-day squad and he is said to be heading to the Emirates stadium.
Unai Emery worked with Denis while he was with Sevilla but both parties didn’t spend much time together before the player’s loan deal came to an end.
It should be recalled that Emery told reporters last week that he’s hoping to add more quality players to his attacking frontline but he’s facing a huge financial setback.
The Daily Star also said the Spanish tactician might sanction Mesut Ozil’s speculated move to Atletico Madrid so as to fund his move for Denis Suarez.
As a result of Arsenal’s financial instability, Unai Emery is set to pull out of the race for Belgian midfielder Yannick Carrasco.
According to the Sun, the Gunners are likely to cool their interest in the Dalian Yifang’s player having failed to meet his price tag.
Should the Gunners hierarchy fail to raise fund to boost their chances of winning Carrasco’s services, Manchester United will be in a firm position to capture the Belgian star.
The Red Devils are said to be eyeing a possible move for his services and Arsenal’s financial crises gives them a huge chance of luring Carrasco to Old Trafford.
Finally, Chelsea invite Barcelona for talks over tar player’s deal
English Premier League side Chelsea will be happy to have Spanish La liga giants Barcelona come forward for talks over a deal for France international Olivier Giroud.
The Spanish La Liga outfit are reported to be considering a move for the former Arsenal player and the West London side are willing to hold talks for a possible deal as Chelsea will be ready to let him leave.
Barcelona are believed to be in search of a striker with former Liverpool man Luis Suarez losing out of form and would need a backup.
Olivier Giroud has not been in the best of form for the West London side since joining the club. Although, he has been defended by manager Maurizio Sarri, stating that he might not score goals but has been able to provide assists and help to pressure the defence.
The World Cup winner has scored only 10 goals in his 42 appearances for the West London side since he joined last January.
However, the Blues will not mind having Olivier Giroud leave the club this winter window and he is believed to be given out for about £13 million which would be well affordable for Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Sarri is keen on Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain as the player to strengthen the team for the remaining half of the season.
Carragher cries out over latest Liverpool transfer decision
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has grumbled over the decision of his former side to let right full-back Nathaniel Clyne leave the Anfield to Bournemouth on loan this winter window.
Nathaniel Clyne was last week announced to have joined the Premier League newcomers in order to secure more playing time after recovering from a back injury which sidelined him for about 257 days.
It has been very difficult for Nathaniel Clyne to return back into the manager Jurgen Klopp’s team since his return which makes him clamour for a move away from the club to be able to regain his form.
However, the Liverpool former player hailed Nathaniel Clyne as he noted that he will bring the needed consistency at Bournemouth with his ability.
Carragher expressed shock at the report that Nathaniel Clyne had left the club as he expected a player of such quality to be made to remain, stressing that he will add more value to the team.
According to him, Nathaniel Clyne was involved in the Reds game against Man United and was impressive which is enough for the manager to keep him.
However, suggestions are that Nathaniel Clyne would be made to return to the club at the end of the season should he give in an impressive performance at Bournemouth.
Liverpool finally make claim on Coutinho’s possible EPL return
Reports over the weeks have linked unsettled Barcelona star away from the Nuo Camp back to the Premier League to play with the West London side Chelsea.
The player has not had life good with the Spanish LA Liga outfit so far this season as he has been relegated to bench roles and also favoured behind France international Ousmane Dembele.
Philippe Coutinho forced a big money move of about £142 million to Barcelona last January transfer he had a better debut season but with latest development, he could just be on his way out after reports claim he is already considering the various offers available for him.
The West London side Chelsea are keen on his signature with the hope to land him in this winter transfer window as it has been established that he is unsettled.
However, the former owners of the Brazil international have claimed that he is ready to leave anywhere he wants to as they are not interested in having him return to the Anfield.
The Reds are believed to have moved on away from the Brazil international especially with the coming of Mohamed Salah who has been in good form to hand hope of a title win to the club this season.
Confirmed! Morata on his way to Spain
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata will be on his way to Spain to join La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid in coming days, before the end of this winter transfer window.
This is after Sky Sports report that the West London side are already in advanced talks and that a deal could fall in place that will ensure his move.
The former Real Madrid player has fallen out of favour in the manager Maurizio Sarri team as a result of the lack of which makes him linked away from the club.
Earlier reports claimed that Alvaro Morata’s agent stormed London to hold discussions with the West London side in a bid to sort out the departure of the Spanish striker.
Sevilla were reported to be keen on the striker as they hope to take advantage of the situation at the Stamford Bridge but they might not succeed with Atletico Madrid looking to be winning the race.
However, Chelsea are reported to be ready to let him leave for a fee of about £45 million so as to bring in a new replacement for him to the Stamford Bridge.
Alvaro Morata is expected to link up with Diego Costa who just left the Stamford Bridge this last summer window.
Jurgen Klopp approaches management for one more signing
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp might have had a change of mind towards this January transfer window as reports claim he has approached the management, requesting them to sanction just one signing for him.
The stand of the Reds team was that there will be no addition this winter window after the German manager claimed that he is happy with his squad and would only be forced out in cases of emergency.
The essence of the latest decision according to feelers is for the former Borussia Dortmund boss to add depth to his team as the challenge for the first spot gets tougher.
So far, the Reds have lost of their defenders with Joe Gomez already out for a while before he was joined by Dejan Lovren on the injury list.
Daily Record reports that the German boss will seek to have a defensive midfielder or a central defender before the end of the winter transfer window.
Although, no specific name has been mentioned as who would be coming in, but the report only revealed that he is keen on the addition.
However, the Merseyside club boss is looking forward to winning his first Premier League title since he took charge of the team some three years ago.
Arsenal Must Offload Ozil To Sign 25-Year-Old Attacker
Premier League giants Arsenal will need to offload controversial midfielder Mesut Ozil in their quest to sign China-based winger Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco.
Yannick Carrasco plays for Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang at the moment.
Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb revealed that the Gunners can only afford the huge financial salary of the former AS Monaco and Atletico Madrid winger if they can get the wages of Mesut Ozil off the books at Arsenal.

Mesut Ozil has lost his starting place at Arsenal since Unai Emery took over and reports claim that the Spanish coach has already offered to two Italian clubs namely Juventus and Inter Milan.
Arsenal will find it hard to get Mesut Ozil and his £350,000 weekly wages off the wage bill at the club.
2014 World Cup winner Ozil signed the contract in February 2018 and he still has two-and-a-half years left on the three-year deal that he signed last year.

Without the German, Arsenal were beaten 1-0 by their hosts with Declan Rice getting the only goal of the game.
