Gary Neville

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has hinted that he is becoming more convinced that Liverpool have a chance of winning the Premier League this season.

This is after the former player turned pundit stated that the Reds are showing traits that gives them the shape as potential winners.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has made frantic efforts to ensure the issues in the club are solved with the recruit of defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in the last January transfer window and also Brazilian number one Alisson Becker from AS Roma to solve the goalkeeping crisis.

However, Neville is of the opinion that the Reds team now look to be in good shape and compact enough to win a title.

According to the United legend, a champion is known to pick up points even when he is not playing well and that is what Liverpool have done so far in the Premier League especially with Klopp’s three attackers looking blunt at the moment.

The likes of Mohamed Salah who was the Premier League highest goal scorer, Saido Mane and Firmino are not in good form at the moment.

The Anfield side are 3rd on the log with 20 points after 8 games in this current campaign.

Emerging reports indicate that Italian Serie A outfit Juventus are close to sealing a move for Chelsea left full-back Emerson Palmieri in this winter transfer window.

The Italian champions are reported to be eager and they are believed to be preparing a bid for Emerson Palmieri in order to beat the competition from their Serie A rivals Inter Milan who are also keen to add him to their team.

Emerson Palmieri is believed to be a good fit for the Italian Serie A team as he started his career in his Italian country home before having a move to the English Premier League.

Emerson Palmieri who joined Rhea West London side from Serie A outfit AS Roma for a fee of £18 million will not be allowed to leave for anything less which means that Juventus will have to pay more than what was invested in the player.

Despite not having a regular playing time at the Stamford Bridge, Emerson Palmieri is known to be a great player who has big potentials and would be able to play at the big stage.

However, the West London side have already made the glaring decision with Emerson Palmieri as he has been unused by manager Maurizio Sarri.

Gelson Martins

Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a move for Atletico Madrid winger Gelson Martins in this January transfer window.

This is according to the publication from Portuguese news outlet O Jogo via Sky Sports.

It was revealed that the Gunners are monitoring his situation at the new Wanda Metropolitano.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for the 23-year-old during last summer’s transfer window when the player was still on the books of Portuguese Super League giants Sporting Lisbon.

He joined Atletico Madrid last summer but he has not been able to make any meaningful impact at the club.

Gelson Martins has started just one league game for Atletico Madrid since the start of the season with seven more appearances coming from the substitute bench.

Arsenal might need to fend off the interest of French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco who are also keen on the Portuguese international player.

Ex-Arsenal striker Thierry Henry is the current Monaco manager and he’s said to be interested in Gelson Martins in his quest to lead his team away from the relegation zone.

The Arsenal legend is under pressure to perform at Monaco and he has already strengthened his team with the signing of ex-Gunners teammate Cesc Fabregas.

Napoli were also not alone in the clubs that attempted to seal the player from Liverpool’s sight as Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona were also understood to be interested in the star player.

IT was a difficult season for Naby Keita in his debut season as he was injured and saw just 8 games which was a big blow but that has since changed as he has become a member of the team as well as making big impact with his presence.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted that Naby Keita has transformed to become a different and better player from what he used to be when plying his trade in Germany stressing that missing out on the player is a big regret for him and his former side.

Philippe Coutinho

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is unhappy with his men’s performance in their defeat to Arsenal last night.

The Blues failed to register a single shot on target in the first half of the game and that was unacceptable to Sarri who ‘blast’ his players after the game.

As a result of the Blues unimpressive display against the Gunners at Emirates Stadium, Sarri has reportedly turned his attention to Barcelona playmaker Phillipe Coutinho.

According to goal.com via The Express, the Italian has called on Abramovich to move for the Catalan’s want-away player.

The highly-regarded media outlet revealed that the Israeli millionaire is now ready to spend £100m on the Selecao playmaker before the end of the current transfer market.

The Brazilian international left Anfield for Camp Nou a year ago and he had a blistering start to life in the Spanish League.

He seamlessly settled down at Camp Nou as he assisted some goals and he also scored some beautiful and eye-catching goals.

However, the 26-year-old couldn’t maintain the tempo and he has fallen out of favour under Ernesto Valverde.

The Argentine manager preferred using Ousmane Dembele in his starting XI and the young Frenchman is doing great at the moment.

Dembele’s fine form means the Brazilian will continue to be a bit-part player at Camp and reports claimed he could be returning back to EPL this month.

Chelsea will have contend with Manchester United for his services. The Red Devils had earlier shown interest in Coutinho and they are doing everything to capture his signature in the January window.

Chelsea still remain in the fourth position despite their 2-0 defeat to the Gunners, however, the gap between both teams is now reduced to three points.

Arsenal defeated the Blues 2-0 courtesy two first half goals from Alexander Lacazette and team captain Laurent Koscielny.

It was the 10th goal scored by French international striker Lacazette in all competitions this term.
