Merseyside outfit Liverpool will later in the day drag it out with German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich in the second leg of the Champions League after playing a goalless draw in the first leg at Anfield.

The Reds team are the only Premier League side waiting to confirm their qualification to the next round of the tournament after Tottenham, Man United and Man City to make it an English dominated quarter-final.

However, Man City boss has unwittingly given the chance to Bayern Munich to win over the manager Jurgen Klopp side later on Wednesday when he said hopefully the Bundesliga outfit can scale through.

Suggestions are that he still has the title rivalry in his mind while his attachment to his former club still exists.

However, pundits are of the opinion that Pep Guardiola’s action for the Reds might come back to hurt his side in the Premier League owing to the fact that the Jurgen Klopp team will now have their attention on the domestic league.

Should Liverpool lose out of the Champions League, they will be left with no choice than to focus all energy and attention to their only hope and that could mean overthrowing Man City from the top of the log.

Chelsea winger Willian has been advised to join Italian Serie A champions Juventus from the Premier League giants.

The Brazilian international was told to leave Chelsea for Juventus by his former manager at Shakhtar Donetsk, Mircea Lucescu.

According to Mircea Lucescu, his style of play fits perfectly with the Old Lady.

Mircea Lucescu discussed Willian, Chelsea and Juventus in an exclusive interview with Italian news publication Tuttosport.

According to him, his Chelsea contract is coming to an end and the 31-year-old should consider a move to Juventus where he will link up with Maurizio Sarri.

Italian tactician Sarri managed him at Chelsea last season and his Juventus side has been linked with a swoop for Willian who has less than a year left on his Blues’ deal.

Willian had previously been linked with major European clubs like Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Barcelona and Atletico Madrid but Chelsea were adamant that he’s not for sale.

Despite the short length of his remaining contract at Chelsea, Willian has emerged as a key player for new manager Frank Lampard as the Blues continue to impress in the Premier League.

Granit Xhaka

Former Arsenal striker Granit Xhaka could leave the club for Italy when the winter transfer window reopens in a few weeks’ time as it looks like the Swiss international star is keen to leave the North Londoners after his clash with fans last month.

Granit Xhaka has not played the last four Arsenal games in all competitions since his foul-mouthed rant towards the Arsenal fans during the league game with Crystal Palace in the London Derby clash played at the Emirates Stadium.

Swiss media outlet RSI claimed that Granit Xhaka has been spotted househunting in Milan and that has fuelled the possibility of a move to seven-time European champions AC Milan.

He has earlier been linked with Inter Milan in the summer though it seems the latest news is about AC Milan whose chief executive Ivan Gazidis was on the payroll at Arsenal before he moved to Italy.

Granit Xhaka was dropped as the Arsenal captain earlier this month by manager Unai Emery due to his misdemeanor last month during the league game with Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

He reacted to chorus of jeers and boos from fans during the game while being substituted and that has led to his no-show at the club.

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie is closing in on a move to Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers according to the newest reports from the British media.

Franck Kessie is in his third season at seven-time champions AC Milan after joining the Rossoneri from fellow Italian Serie A outfit Atalanta.

According to Birmingham Mail, Wolves are edging closer to a January transfer for Frank Kessie.

It was revealed that the earlier reports claimed that the Midlands club had agreed on a move for the Ivorian international star since the summer but that is wide off the mark.

Franck Kessie had previously been linked with the London duo of Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Ivorian midfielder was a transfer target for the two London clubs in the summer though the Blues were unable to make any transfer due to the FIFA ban.

Chelsea were handed a transfer ban for two windows after they were deemed to have breached rules about signing players under the age of 18 by world football’s governing body FIFA.

The West Londoners appealed to FIFA over the ruling but their appeal was thrown out thereby prompting them to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) with the ruling expected later this month.

Though United have conceded 12 goals this season, the Sweden international has formed a great understanding with summer signing Harry Maguire at the heart of the defense.
