Premier League table-toppers Liverpool have already contacted the agent of Nice wonderkid Pedro Brazao over a potential transfer this month.

This is according to the Daily Mirror via one of its publications as the Reds try to steal a march on their rivals in the bid to sign the 17-year-old winger.

European sides like Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Sporting Lisbon are also interested in the player who has made one appearance for French club Nice this season.

Popular media outlet Foot Mercato had earlier revealed that the Reds and PSG have made contact with the player.

Pedro Brazao could be the third signing for Liverpool this month though that depends on the agreement with Nice since the player has a long-term contract at the club until 2023.

Liverpool are keen to move swiftly in the transfer window to sign Pedro Brazao ahead of the other clubs.

The Reds adopted a similar strategy for Japanese international Takumi Minamino whom they signed at the start of this month.

Liverpool were able to sign the Japanese attacker ahead of arch-rivals Manchester United before they added Joe Hardy to their ranks from Brentford.

He is not the first Brazilian teenager to join Real Madrid in the last one year as the likes of Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. have also joined the Los Merengues as teenagers.

Arsenal have been very active in the Brazilian transfer market and that’s partly due to club legend Edu who’s the sporting director at the Emirates Stadium.

Edu is a former Arsenal midfielder who also turned out for the Brazilian national team.

He was instrumental to the signing of young forward Gabriel Martinelli who has been in sensational form for the Gunners in his first season with 10 goals in all competitions.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Several Manchester United fans took to the social media to express their frustrations at the result from the latest Premier League visit to Liverpool on Sunday evening.

Solskjaer was called a fraud by the Manchester United fans as their were a lot of Ole Out comments on social media during the game.

Manchester United were missing the services of several key players and that played a major role as the Red Devils were completely dominated from start to finish.

Liverpool had a dominant first half against Manchester United and they were rewarded with a powerful header from Virgil Van Dijk before Mohamed Salah scored his first ever goal against the Red Devils to wrap up the points in added time.

Manchester United fail to close the gap on the top four to two points with a win over Liverpool, while the Reds were able to extend their lead at the Premier League summit to 16 points.

Xerdan Shaqiri

Italian capital club AS Roma have turned their attention to former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj who is on the payroll of Spanish La Liga side Real Sociedad.

AS Roma are looking for a replacement for wide midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo who will miss several months after a serious knee injury.

Zaniolo is also a big doubt for the 2020 European Championships later this year as a result of the big injury which he sustained during the league game at home to Italian champions Juventus last week Sunday.

His injury marred the game which saw Juventus return to the Italian Serie A summit after several weeks in second position behind fellow title challengers Inter Milan.

Juventus beat AS Roma 2-1 in front of their fans to make it four straight league wins.

Roma had two immediate options for Zaniolo’s replacements but they have been rebuffed in their quest to sign one of the two options.

AC Milan winger Suso and Liverpool star Xerdan Shaqiri were the options for AS Roma.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp categorically said that Shaqiri is not for sale.

Roma have turned their tentacles to Adnan Januzaj who has scored four goals in 12 appearances for his Spanish club.

He’s available on loan with the option of a permanent transfer for £12.7m.

Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has predicted where opponents Manchester United will finish at the end of this Premier League season.

Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with the quality of Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season and in his latest press conference, the Liverpool boss said that the Red Devils have the quality to finish in the top four places thereby securing qualification into the Champions League for next season.

Jurgen Klopp backed Manchester United to finish the season strongly by nabbing one of the four Champions League slots available for Premier League teams.

Manchester United are the only team to have denied Jurgen Klopp victory in 21 games, although they where beaten by Liverpool in their latest encounter (2-0).

In their previous encounter, Liverpool needed a late strike from substitute Adam Lallana to seal a point in the first game after a first-half strike from Marcus Rashford had given the Red Devils an advantage.

Both teams settled for a 1-1 draw in that league meeting in October 2019.

Klopp doesn’t have a good record against Manchester United with just three wins from 11 games in all competitions including just one win from the last eight games which was the 3-1 win in the corresponding fixture last season.
