This Player Is Destined For Liverpool Says Spokesman

Jack Butland

Liverpool have been linked with a move to sign Stoke City’s goalie Jack Butland in the summer.

It was reported here last night that the England international netminder is one of Jurgen Klopp’s targets in the summer as he hopes to find a long-lasting solution to his goalkeeping department ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Simon Mignolet, who has been the Reds first-choice goalkeeper for a long time was surprisingly pushed to the bench by Klopp, who prefers Loris Karius in his starting lineup ahead of the Belgian.

The experienced goalie is reportedly set to end his time at Anfield Stadium this summer, despite having two years to play in his contract with the club.

Though Loris Karius was impressive in the first period of last season, his performance during the latter stage of the season was nothing to write home about. The most unforgivable error was against Real Madrid in the Champions League final game in Kiev.

The goalkeeper was guilty of two of the three goals conceded by the Merseyside club. Loris mistakes during the game has awakened Klopp to the truth that there is a need to get more experienced and reliable netminder before the start of next season.

Klopp is hoping the Reds capture Butland’s signature from Stoke City, who were relegated to the Championship side.

While predicting Liverpool’s chances of getting Butland, bookmakers Coral – via its spokesman – suggest that Liverpool will end up as Butland’s next destination despite interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

“It looks inevitable thatJack Butland is going to leave Stoke this summer and judging by the number of bets we have taken this morning on Liverpool being his next club, it suggests to us that Jurgen Klopp may have identified his new ‘keeper.” he revealed.

Denis Suarez

Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has emerged as the favorite player to join Arsenal in the current January transfer window.

This is according to bookmakers SkyBet via Football London.

Denis Suarez, 25, is the favourite player to join North London giants Arsenal this month at the odds of 8/13 ahead of China-based forward Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco (9/4), Chelsea centre back Gary Cahill (4/1) and the Barcelona forward duo of Malcom (9/1) and French World Cup winner Ousmane Dembele (12/1).

Gonzalo Higuain

English Premier League outfit Chelsea are the only big side that have completed a deal in this winter transfer window and they are yet to add more before the end of the month.

The Blues are lacking a cutting edge in their attack and they wish to have a solution in order to record a successful second half of the season.

The likes of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud are not in good goalscoring form which makes it necessary for the West London side to make moves for new additions.

However, Chelsea have been linked with Argentina international and AC Milan star Gonzalo Higuain and Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson with the hope of having their signature in this winter window.

Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett has therefore given the hint that the West London side will not be bringing both strikers to the club but will rather move in for one.

According to give, the Argentina international remains the first option for manager Maurizio Sarri but a move will be made for the Premier League striker should the deal for Higuain fails to work through.

Meanwhile, the Italian Serie A side are keen to stop the player from leaving the club this winter window.

Hirving Lozano

It has been revealed that English Premier League side Chelsea might no longer move in for PSV winger Hirving Lozano in this winter window.

This has been traced to the fact that the West London side sealed a move for German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic some days back.

The Blues were the first to announce a major deal among other big Premier League sides for Christian Pulisic and immediately loaned him back until the end of the season.

However, the West London side were interested in the signature of Hirving Lozano but there are suggestions he would no longer move that direction because of the number of wingers already on ground at the Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Italian Serie A outfits Napoli and Inter Milan are all reported to be keen on the signature of the star player and with the latest development from the Premier League side, they will now stand a better chance on landing Hirving Lozano.

The winger is believed to be interested in a move away from PSV and reports claim that he will jump at any luring deal that would be placed on the table for him.

Chelsea are now interested in the signature of attackers that will replace Alvaro Morata, who is not in good goalscoring form.

Marouane Fellaini

Three teams are reportedly interested in a transfer for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

According to the report from the Daily Mirror, the three teams are keen on a £15m raid on Manchester United for the Belgian international star.

Portuguese champions FC Porto, seven-time European champions AC Milan and Chinese Super League outfit Guangzhou Evergrande are all in a battle to sign the Red Devils player.

Manchester United are open to the idea of selling Marouane Fellaini who has been reduced to a peripheral figure at the club since ex-Red Devils striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge of the team.

Norwegian tactician Solskjaer was appointed the interim manager of Manchester United in December after the last permanent manager, Jose Mourinho, lost his job in the wake of a disastrous start to this season.

Fellaini has played just once since the aforementioned Solskjaer became the Manchester United manager.

His sole appearance came earlier this month in the FA Cup third round clash against English Championship side Reading at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in that cup game against the Royals.

He was previously a regular starter while Jose Mourinho was still the manager at Old Trafford.

Arsenal have been boosted with the news that they can get one of their transfer targets for £3m.

Colombian international playmaker James Rodriguez has been linked with Arsenal after falling out with Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac at the Allianz Arena.

The 27-year-old is on a two-year loan deal at Bayern Munich from European champions Real Madrid at the moment.

He joined the Bavarian giants at the start of last season and was a regular fixture in the Bayern team that retained their Bundesliga crown at the end of last season under the guidance of veteran manager Jupp Heynckes.

He has had to endure contrasting fortunes this season in comparison to the last campaign.

James Rodriguez is certainly not a favorite of Niko Kovac as the Colombian has struggled to make the same impact from last season under him.

Bayern are willing to let him leave in the current transfer window with six months left on his loan contract with the club.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal can get him for just £3m which is for the remaining period before his loan spell expires.

Bayern Munich were said to have paid £11.5m for the two-year loan with the option to make his transfer permanent for £39.5m.

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is edging closer to a transfer to Spanish La Liga giants Valencia according to various reports coming out of the British media.

Javier Hernandez is on the payroll of Premier League club West Ham United at the moment.

The Mexican international star is said to have agreed to terms with Los Che but West Ham want to sign a replacement for him before the transfer can be sanctioned according to the publication from The Guardian.

Javier Hernandez left Manchester United to join German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2014 after the Mexican was deemed to be surplus to requirements by then manager Louis Van Gaal.

He joined West Ham United from Bayer Leverkusen at the start of last season but the former Red Devils striker has had a less successful career with the Hammers in comparison to his spell with the Old Trafford club.

Hernandez could follow Marko Arnautovic out of West Ham in this January transfer window with Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai SIPG keen to complete a £35m transfer for the Austrian international star.

The Hammers had earlier released a statement about Arnautovic with the Hammers insisting that he’s not for sale despite the interest from China.
