Huge boost for Liverpool as fans will be very ecstatic to see that yet another payer will miss out of the champion league clash against PSG next week.

After losing Marco Verratti, Gigi Buffon, Dani Alves and Adrien Rabiot, which would shake the inexperienced fraction of the players on Tuesday, Kurzawa will now be left out of the team owing to the injury sustained in the International Friendly.

Paris Saint-Germain may be desiring to win the champions league this season, after ending the contract of Unai Emery to secure former Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel; albeit, we could see more of the same as the only threat against the Reds right now is in the front three.

Kurzawa is a huge loss to Tuchel, reason being that he can play as both a left back and left wing.

Tuchel initially adopted the 3 at the back in a 3:4:1:2 formation while using Kurzawa in the left wing but it appears that he could change his formation back to 4:2:3:1 in other to give Neymar a free No.10 role and as well, risk Angel Di Maria in the left back or perhaps start N’Soki.

Albeit summer signing Juan Bernat is yet to adapt to PSG footballing style so would be left out as well.

Liverpool may dominate the midfield but they still need to be cautious of the the most expensive attacking combination of Neymar, Edison Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.

The predicted line-up against Liverpool.

PSG 4:2:3:1 formation

Areola; Kimpembe, Silva, Meunier, N’Soki; Marquinhos, Diarra; Mbappe, Neymar, Di Maria, Cavani.

Conte will return to the Inter Milan dugout as a replacement for Luciano Spalletti who has run his course with the Nerazzurri.

Romelu Lukaku has three years left on his Manchester United contract at the moment but that’s not expected to get in the way of Inter Milan in their quest to sign the all-time leading goalscorer for the Belgian national team.

The 26-year-old scored 12 league goals for Manchester United during the recently concluded Premier League season but his output was only enough for sixth position.

The interest in Belgium international and Man United striker Romelu Lukaku by the Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan has been confirmed ahead of the summer transfer window.

Romelu Lukaku has not been favoured in the Man United team under manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer as he failed to put up a good performance in the course of last season with just a few goals to boast of.

However, it has long been reported that Romelu Lukaku seeks to leave the Old Trafford and now his wish could be granted with claims that he is on the list of that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaher wants to show the way out.

It is therefore suggested that Romelu Lukaku will not be left without suitors as the new Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is a big fan of the Belgium international and would insist on having him.

Antonio Conte has got plans to rebuild the Inter Milan team to be able to challenge Juventus for the Serie A title but that will only happen with the presence of quality players.

However, Romelu Lukaku is not alone in the wish list of the former Chelsea boss with Nigerian international Victor Moses also mentioned as his number one targets for the coming season.

Mesut Ozil

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright is adamant that the sale of star player Mesut Ozil this summer will be a bad move from the club.

The Arsenal legend talked about Mesut Ozil and transfers during his recent interview as monitored by Goal.

Recent reports had claimed that Arsenal manager Unai Emery is looking to move several first team players on during this summer’s transfer window.

For now, the target for Unai Emery and his Arsenal Players is to deliver the Europa League trophy at the expense of London rivals Chelsea.
