Liverpool have been urged to make a move for Leicester defender Harry Maguire.
The Englishman stellar displays for both club and country has led to widespread interest from a host of Premiership clubs
Manchester United were understood to be the frontrunners in the battle for his signature but were rebuffed due to his 65 million pounds price tag slapped on him by Leicester
However, the quoted massive figure appears not to have deterred the top guns and it is reported the towering centre-back could make a last-gasp move from the Foxes.
The Reds, in particular, have made a statement of intent by paying the highest figures for a defender and goalkeeper over the past eight months.
And club legend Phil Thompson has urged the Anfield outfit to make a move for Maguire in what he believes would be a formidable partnership with Virgil van Dijk
Thompson told Sky Sports,
I like what Jurgen Klopp has done by trying to strengthen the players behind the front three and get more goals from that area. That part of the team is where you win titles and Fabinho, Shaqiri and Keita can provide that additional firepower. [Adam] Lallana is also back. With one more centre-back, Liverpool can be a real force; I’d be looking at snatching Harry Maguire from under Manchester United’s noses.
However, it appears highly unlikely the Merseysiders would be keen on paying for another defender having already being well stocked in the department.
Manager Jurgen Klopp seems eager on giving the club’s promising young players a shot having witnessed the remarkable development of Trent Alexander Arnold and Joe Gomez
Teenage sensation Curtis Jones is highly rated by the German manager and would be given a chance to feature prominently for the first team this forthcoming season.
Arsenal To Make Third Bid For Kieran Tierney
Arsenal will reportedly make a third bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in the coming days.
This is according to the publication from Daily Record which revealed that the Gunners are preparing a third bid for the Scottish international left-back.
It was revealed that Arsenal will make another £25m for the player with better payment arrangement.
Arsenal had earlier made a second bid of £25m which included £7m in add-ons.
Celtic swiftly turned down that second bid which had just £18m in upfront payment.
Arsenal will offer more in upfront payment from the £25m to meet the financial demand from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.
The Gunners have identified Kieran Tierney as their major transfer target in their quest to sign a new left-back this summer.
They had earlier made a first bid of just £15m for the player.
Arsenal left-backs Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Mineral were unable to meet up with what was demanded by club manager Unai Emery in that position hence the need to sign a new player for that position.
Kieran Tierney, 22, has been recovering from hernia and hip problems but he’s expected to be fit by next month.
He wants the move to Arsenal but the Scottish player won’t force the transfer.
Why Man Utd Turn Down Chance To Sign Gareth Bale
Premier League club Manchester United have turned down the opportunity to sign embattled Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale this summer.
This is according to the publication from the stables of the London Evening Standard which revealed that Manchester United have passed up the opportunity to sign the former Tottenham Hotspur hitman.
Manchester United are long-term admirers of Bale who’s surplus to requirements at Real Madrid after six seasons at the club.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane confirmed that the player is not in his plan at the weekend.
According to him, Gareth Bale will leave Real Madrid for a new club this summer despite the fact that he still has three years left on his current deal.
Bale became a Real Madrid player in the summer of 2013 when he joined the Los Merengues from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur for a then world-record fee of £85.3m.
He held that record for three years before Paul Pogba moved from Juventus to Manchester United for £89m during the summer transfer window in 2016.
Gareth Bale has scored more than 100 goals for Real Madrid since his move to the club six years ago.
The Welsh international forward won four Champions League titles during that period.
Harry Maguire Told What To Do For Dream Man Utd Move
Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has been told what to do to get his dream move to Manchester United during this summer’s transfer window.
Harry Maguire has been linked with a move to Manchester United for the majority of this summer.
The 26-year-old is keen for the move to Manchester United to happen but Leicester City are holding out for a lot of money for him.
He has been advised on what to do to get his dream move by former Premier League player Charlie Adam.
While he was on British radio TalkSport, Charlie Adam told Harry Maguire that he has to force the transfer if he wants to become a Manchester United player this summer.
Harry Maguire has been a long-term transfer for Manchester United dating back to last summer when the former Sheffield United player impressed a great deal for the Three Lions of England at last year’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
He was part of the England team that finished the tournament in fourth position.
Manchester United have already made a £70m bid for him this summer but the Foxes are holding for more than £80m which will make him the most expensive defender in world football.
