Man United have been severally advised by pundits and former players to move in for a striker instead of England international winger Jadon Sancho who is unavailable at their own price.

That may now happen with Red Devils reportedly considering a move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin who has proven to be a player to watch this season after his impressive start.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has now become the youngest English ace to score a hat-trick for Everton when he was magical in the 18 box in Toffees’ game against West Brom last weekend.

It is understood that the Red Devils have been attracted to the youngster even before his hat-trick but the feat has earned him more attention and it could have convinced the club into making a deal for him this summer window.

However, the Red Devils have already learned the price tag for Dominic Calvert-Lewin and that could be a major stumbling block in the deal because they might not be able to meet the £80 million valuation.

It is also believed that Everton will not come down on the fee because they have a great belief that the player will succeed and his value will be increased in the coming years if he continues in this form.

Liverpool will soon be without Belgium striker Divock Origi as he is set to leave the club in the January winter transfer window after a disappointing season so far.

The Champions League game against Midtjylland on Tuesday evening saw Divock Origi put in another disappointing performance after he was given the opportunity alongside other backup players by manager Jurgen Klopp.

The disappointing performance by the 25-year-old have sparked speculations that he will now leave the club as he has not had the best of time at Anfield for the past one year.

Belgium outlet Veotbal reports that Divock Origi does not see a future with the Merseyside outfit again, especially as the arrival of Diogo Jota has relegated him and taken him down the pecking order.

Divock Origi must leave the Reds team in order to save his national team career as leaving Liverpool will give him fresh opportunities elsewhere and playing time.

The report, therefore, claims Divock Origi will join Club Brugge in his homeland in the January window either on a loan deal or he could decide for a permanent move as a place in the Jurgen Klopp’s team is no longer guaranteed.

Divock Origi still has a running contract with the English Premier League title holders until 2024 and a permanent move will be the best deal for him and his suitors if his asking price will be affordable.

The Belgium international has been a very important player in Jurgen Klopp’s team but he is mostly used from the bench to seal wins for the club> that was seen in Liverpool’s Champions League win last two seasons.

However, it is yet to be known if the former Borussia Dortmund boss will release the Belgium international in the January transfer window, knowing how important he can be, coming from the bench in important games.

The expectation of fans and pundits are that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will bring in new signings in the coming January transfer window but it is feared that they could be left disappointed at the end of the day.

Liverpool have lost key players to injury including Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho which exposes their defence to dangers against opponents. The Dutch international is not expected to play again this season while the Brazilian international would be seen later on.

Several names have already been linked for a move to Anfield with reports that the German boss is preparing to bring in a new defender that will serve as cover for the former Southampton defender and also be able to play along with him when he returns from injury.

Liverpool Echo have now reported that there is no assurance that manager Jurgen Klopp will bring in a new defender in the coming January transfer window, adding that he could just decide to stick with his current squad and get the best from them.

This report confirms the claim made by former Liverpool player Adam Lallana who claims that the German boss is happy with the current situation at Anfield as he always likes to be an “underdog”
Adam Lallana added that Jurgen Klopp will surprise many by sticking to his team and getting them to pull the best result that is wished for.
However, the Reds are being linked with Ozan Kabak from the German Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 with reports claiming that they will be making a move for him as soon as the January transfer window.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has described Liverpool’s current situation as being married to injuries as the list of the injured players continues to grow but that has not stopped his team from picking points in the Champions League and the Premier League.

Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken against the proposed European Super League which is being worked out for the 2022 kickoff.

English Premier League outfits Liverpool and Man United are believed to be frontiers in the new development which already has the backing of the world football governing body.

So far, the European Super League is gaining momentum and has received the backing of the American Bank JP Morgan with about $6 billion and that means there is no stopping of it.

Foam Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is now a FIFA staff has expressed his dissatisfaction with the development, arguing that all advantages benefitted by the Premier League will no longer be in place.

“The Premier League has a superiority. Project Big Picture wanted to reinforce this superiority. The other leagues try to destroy the advantage of the Premier League”

He expressed fears that the European League could be the plan of other leagues to frustrate the Premier League because of the advantages they will no longer benefit.

Arsene Wenger also revealed that the only reason why the frontiers of this initiative are getting down with it is because of the financial benefits they will enjoy as investors.

However, North London outfit Arsenal and the manager have not come out clear on their opinion of the development as it is claimed that they are being invited to be a part of it.

Manager Mikel Arteta has refused to give a stand on the matter, stating that the final format is yet to be known but expects something concrete very soon. He, therefore, called on the unity of all to be able to find the right solutions.

Meanwhile, the league is proposed to kick-start sometime in 2022 with 18 top European teams, including Barcelona and Real Madrid expected to be part of it.
