Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had earlier stated that he will not be going into the summer transfer window for big signings.

He stressed that he is happy with his team and will not seek to distract them. According to the German manager, the reason for his decision is based on the fact that none of the big stars will be leaving the club.

However, latest developments have hinted that the words of the German boss cannot be taken seriously.

Firstly, the Reds team have now realised that they really need to strengthen the squad if they must beat the competition from Man City for the English Premier League title. This is now a major concern for Liverpool, knowing that they have not won it in the last 29 years.

Also, Liverpool have been linked with a number of players and it is speculated that manager Jurgen Klopp is the one making the moves.

Thirdly, there is a bid by Liverpool to bolster their attack and give competition to Brazilian international Roberto Firmino.

Also, Liverpool have now been established as a big side after winning the UEFA Champions League title. That has exposed the club to a number of big names that would be difficult to turn down. The likes of Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt is available to Liverpool.

Lastly, Liverpool can boast of having one of the best defence in Europe but they must do more to secure the goal post because of the E.expectations for next season.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has the opportunity to lead his team into the fifth round of the FA Cup but he must navigate the Gunners through a tricky fourth round tie at fellow Premier League side Bournemouth.

Arteta and his Arsenal players would be expected to seal their place in the last 16 of the competition at the expense of the Cherries who ended their wretched run with a 3-1 win at home to Brighton and Hove Albion in their last league game.

Before the win over Brighton, Bournemouth had picked up just four points from the last ten games in the Premier League.

Arsenal and Bournemouth have already met twice this season in the league.

The first meeting ended in a 1-0 win for hosts Arsenal courtesy the first half goal from Brazilian international David Luiz. The game took place in October

The second Premier League game between the two teams this season ended in a draw after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cancelled out the opening goal of the game scored by Dan Gosling for the hosts Bournemouth.

Possible Arsenal XI: Emiliano Martinez; Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, Rob Holding, Bukayo Saka; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil; Gabriel Martinelli, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicholas Pepe.

Krzysztof Piatek

Monday, January 27

AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek has been offered to a Premier League club as per the newest reports in the media in the United Kingdom.

Piatek is now the second choice striker at AC Milan after the signing of club legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic earlier this month.

Swedish football icon Zlatan re-signed for AC Milan this month on a free transfer after the striker ended his contract at Major League Soccer (MLS) giants LA Galaxy.

Krzysztof Piatek scored 30 goals in all competitions for both Genoa and AC Milan in the last campaign but he has struggled to replicate that kind of form in this campaign.

The Polish international signed for AC Milan from fellow Italian top flight side Genoa last year January.

According to the Daily Express, Chelsea have been offered the opportunity to sign Piatek in this winter transfer market.

Krzysztof Piatek could be the answer to Chelsea and their search for a second striker.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard doesn’t see the attacking duo of Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud as the perfect competition for Tammy Abraham.

Tottenham Hotspur are also said to be interested in Piatek who has scored just five goals for the Italian Serie A giants in all competitions.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United have drawn up a four-man managerial shortlist in the event that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is booted out of his job.

Solskjaer has come under serious pressure in recent days but the word out of Old Trafford is that Manchester United bosses still believe that the club legend has what it takes to turn things around after a difficult week.

Senior Manchester United bosses want to back him with new players but that could change if results continue to dwindle.

Manchester United have lost their last two league games against arch-rivals Liverpool and Burnley and that has seen their charge for a top-four place fade.

Those two results came on the back of the injury suffered by Marcus Rashford who’s the leading goalscorer in the team with 19 goals in all competitions.

Rashford will not return to action until two months’ time.

For now, Manchester United have a four-man shortlist of managers to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if the club pulled the trigger.

According to The Times, Ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino heads that list alongside current England national team boss Gareth Southgate.

RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann is also on the shortlist as well as Paris Saint Germain (PSG) manager Thomas Tuchel.
