Fabinho

As Liverpool star player Fabinho marks his birthday, Manager Jurgen Klopp feels the best birthday gift he can offer the player is his first Champions League start at the Anfield.

Liverpool will be playing the Red Stars Belgrade on Wednesday night in what happens to be a doubleheader game.

Fabinho had joined the Anfield side from French outlet Monaco with a fee of £4-0 million but he has not seen a lot of appearances. That could be changing now as he marks his birthday.

Klopp had hinted that the reason why the former Monaco man has not seen lots of games is because of his slowness in adapting to the style at the club but stated that there could be an improvement.

However, he stated that the player who turned 25 on Tuesday will have a birthday gift of a Champions League start on Wednesday.

The German manager, who noted that Fabinho was a confident and hard guy while with his former side, said he has not shown that character yet and that needs to change.

He stated that he probably might be affected by his quiet and reserved personality but he hopes that can change on the pitch and his former person at Monaco can be brought back to the Anfield.

Italian journalist Nicolo Schira has revealed that Premier League giants Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign two players this month.

The Gazzetta dello Sport media personnel made this known on his official Twitter account as monitored by Football London.

Yannick Carrasco

Experienced Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur has confirmed that North London giants Arsenal have been offered the chance to sign exciting winger Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco.

According to him via the Daily Star, Belgian international attacker Yannick Carrasco has been offered to the Gunners who don’t have the money to sign him.

Terreur further revealed that his wages will also be a problem for the North Londoners.

He earns £160,000 (€180,000) on a weekly basis in China.

Yannick Carrasco is desperate to return to Europe in the current January transfer window after leaving Spanish side Atletico Madrid for Chinese Super League club Yifang Dalian in February 2018.

An Arsenal transfer for Carrasco will be possible on two conditions.

Firstly, he has to take a pay cut on his £160,000 per week salary.

The other condition is that his Chinese club would opt for a loan arrangement with the Gunners for the former AS Roma forward rather than their preference for a permanent deal.

Arsenal have been restricted to possible loan signings this month after it was revealed that the club has no money to spend in this transfer window.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery confirmed the ‘no money’ stance from the club in one of his recent pre-match press conferences.

Mesut Ozil

Arsenal are reportedly prepared to pay midfielder Mesut Ozil to speed up his exit from the club.

According to the ESPN, senior club officials don’t mind paying Ozil after he leaves the club with Arsenal finding it difficult to sell him because of his huge salary.

Earlier reports claim that the 2014 FIFA World Cup winner has already been offered to the Italian Serie A duo of Juventus and Inter Milan by Gunners boss Unai Emery after Ozil failed to adapt to his methods since the start of the season.

ESPN confirmed that there is interest in Mesut Ozil from China and that Inter Milan are also open to a loan deal for the former Real Madrid and Schalke 04 playmaker but his huge salary is a stumbling block to any transfer.

  1. Manchester United officially confirmed star player’s departure

Mesut Ozil is on a weekly pay of £350,000 following the contract that he signed in February 2018.

The recently retired German international star still has two-and-a-half years left on that contract.

Ozil and Unai Emery have not enjoyed a good working relationship since the latter was appointed the Arsenal manager in the summer.

The Spaniard had dropped Ozil on numerous occasions including last weekend’s Premier League London Derby defeat (1-0) at the hands of West Ham United.

jurgen klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been suggested to have a change of mind in his stand on the winter transfer market by club legend John Aldridge.

The Reds are dipped into defensive crisis which could affect all of their efforts all through the season and that is why the Reds legend feels the German boss cannot afford to take the gamble but to add to his squad so as to be able to push through the second half of the season.

Former Southampton central defender Virgil Van Dijk is only central back available at the moment for the team with three other options injured but the German boss feels he can still manage the team without the players.

He made it clear that he is happy with the squad and will not necessarily go into the market for more additions.

However, the Reds legend stated that it would be a better situation for his former side if Joel Matip returns soon as Fabinho cannot continue to carry on despite pulling a superb performance at the defense.

He, therefore, stated that should the Reds survive this winter window with the return of Joel Matip, he expects the German boss to secure new defenders in the coming summer window.

Liverpool edging closer to big deal

English Premier League leaders Liverpool are believed to be close to sealing a deal for Red Bull Salzburg striker Moanes Dabour before the end of this January transfer window.

While the report claims that the Merseyside club are in pole position to land Moanes Dabour, it adds that the Reds are still unsure whether to table a bid or not.

This could therefore delay a deal for the Israel international and the Reds could just miss out on his signature knowing that he has got a number of suitors who are also ready to land him before the end of this winter window.

It is alleged that the Reds are making efforts to replace Dominic Solanke who has gone to join Bournemouth with Moanes Dabour so as to add more options to the team’s attack.

However, Transfer Market Web confirms that the Reds are close to sealing a deal for Moanes Dabour but failed to state when the deal could be confirmed.

The report claims that the Reds are considering to submit an offer of £22 million for the star forward who is also being linked with a move to Fulham, Valencia, and Leeds.

Meanwhile, the Reds are still top of the Premier League table and they hope their current crop of players can help them through.

Daniel Sturridge

Emerging reports claim that Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge is still keen on leaving the Anfield this January winter transfer window as he awaits the right offers.

The report claims that Daniel Sturridge expects to move to the US topflight league MLS, having held talks with some teams in the league.

The 29-year-old is currently in his last six months as a Liverpool player according to his contract which makes him free to speak to suitors in this January window.

Liverpool are yet to have any discussion with the star player over a new deal which signals that he is on his way out.

More so, the fact that he has not been handed playing time as he has failed to break into the team hints that he is not in the plans of manager Jurgen Klopp.

Last season, Daniel Sturridge got offers from China but refused to leave as he was bent on fighting for a shirt at the Anfield which has failed to yield any result.

However, the Reds are expected to listen to offers for the player and hand him is wish to leave or risk losing him for free when his contract expires at the end of the season.

End of the road for Liverpool as target gets new bumper deal

Timo Werner

Liverpool have reached the end of the road in their pursuit of RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner as he is already being offered a whopping deal of £100,000-a-week by his German side, according to Bild

This, therefore, means that the Reds will no longer be able to land the star player as he will not be available anymore excepts if he rejects the offer from his German side.

Suggestions are that the development is more of a blow to Tottenham than the Reds knowing that the North London outfit are also keen on the player and they have got no enough option at the attack.

Tottenham have lost Harry Kane to injury which would have been the best opportunity to land Timo Werner so he could serve as a cover for the injured England international.

Timo Werner has been impressive this season to continue his fine goalscoring form of last season. He scored a total of 42 goals in his first two seasons which makes the club keen on keeping him.

However, the reaction of the German international o the £100,000 offer handed to him would be made known in coming days as he is yet to confirm the offer.

English Premier League outfit Liverpool had thought that they will bring back Steven Caulker to help the squad through the second half of the season, especially with the number of injuries in the team.

But that will no longer happen as he has been snapped up by Turkish side Aytemiz Alanyaspor.

The England international defender is also respected at the Anfield and has been tipped to help serve as a defensive replacement but that will no longer happen with the latest development.

Steven Caulker joined Liverpool on loan in 2016 and was able to secure just six appearances under manager Jurgen Klopp before he found his way out as he could not break into the team.

With the situation at the Merseyside club where Virgil Van Dijk is only available central defender makes it necessary for the German boss to look out for an option and he was believed to be willing to return Steven Caulker on a loan spell knowing that he has improved in his game.

However, the Reds boss might not go ahead with other signings having lost out on Steven Caulker having earlier stated that he was not interested in this winter transfer window especially if his players remain fit although.
