EPL: Jurgen Klopp might have found new Van Dijk already

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has very little choice to call upon in the defence when his team resumes their Premier League action at the weekend as a number of his defenders are currently injured.

Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk will not be available for selection again this season after his injury against Everton in the Merseyside derby while Fabinho has been ruled out for injury as well. Joel Matip cannot be trusted with his fitness level as he has been inconsistent as a result of injuries.

Jurgen Klopp can now boast of Joe Gomez as the only senior centre-back which will force him to turn his attention to Rhys Williams as the January transfer window is yet to be opened for reinforcement.

With the teenager set to feature regularly for Liverpool, he could be the new Virgil Van Dijk and the revelation for the season despite having little experience with first-team football.

However, he is known to have some great qualities that can be compared to that of the injured Dutch defender which could be the weapon to stop opponents and help the team. He is good on the hair.

The 19-year-old has contested 17 aerial duels so far, and won 12 of them, an average of 70.6 per cent, more than some of the big players in the league. He also has the highest of 6-foot-3.

However, Rhys Williams might not impress immediately at Anfield but with Jurgen Klopp willing to invest faith in him, the opportunity might be what he has been waiting for to make a name for himself.

Meanwhile, it fears have been expressed in a report by Liverpool Echos that the German boss might not consider the signature of any player in the coming transfer window and that will no doubt leave the fans disappointed but consistent wins could also convince them.

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United did not sign England international winger Jadon Sancho last summer transfer window but that does not mean a deal will not go down later in the future.

The Red Devils have made the former Man City academy player their first choice but they were unable to agree on a fee with the German Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund and that put an end to the saga.

However, Borussia Dortmund have released a statement hinting that Manchester United could still get Jadon Sancho to sign at the Old Trafford, but made it clear it will only happen in the future.

The club clearly stated that they expected Jadon Sancho to remain at the club for AT LEAST ONE MORE SEASON. This means he could be leaving the club in the coming summer transfer window.

Commentators have expressed the possibility of an agreement between the two clubs for a deal to happen in the next summer window but that was not stated anywhere by either of the clubs.

The Red Devils will now move ahead with their transfer activities by looking out for an alternative so as to rebuild the squad in January.

Sergio Romero

English Premier League club Man United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is unhappy at Old Trafford and he is reported to be in conflict with the club for not sanctioning his sale in the last summer transfer window.

Sergio Romero has gone down the pecking order at Old Trafford from the second choice to the third owing to the return of Dean Henderson.

The South American reportedly had offers from several clubs but Manchester United refused to let him leave. Everton were keen give him the opportunity of regular playing time, according to leading journalist Gianluca Di Marzio but the Red Devils denied him the move.

Sergio Romero is unhappy at Manchester United and has been in conflict with the club,. His wife was first to speak out by blasting the Red Devils for not respecting the decision of her husband despite his contribution to the team in the past.

However, it will be a big surprise to see Sergio Romero at Manchester United after the January winter transfer window because he is desperate to leave the club and has suitors both in the Premier League and abroad.

Everton are believed to be interested in Sergio Romero while MLS clubs are also hoping to agree on a deal for him but that will depend on Man United.

David De Gea has been favored for the first-team role despite his unsatisfactory performance last season but the door is opened to Dean Henderson to nail down a regular first-choice shirt.

Manchester United are now stabilized with a number of wins across all competitions.

Sami Khedira

Manchester United have reportedly been linked with a shock move for Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira.

According to The Sun, the 2014 German World Cup winner has emerged as a target for Manchester United as he’s about to be released from his contract at Juventus.

Sami Khedira has been declared surplus to requirements at Juventus by new manager Andrea Pirlo.

Club legend Pirlo has been appointed the Juventus manager this summer on the back of the dismissal of Maurizio Sarri.

Pirlo has six midfielders in his team following the summer arrivals of Arthur and Weston McKennie and the aforementioned Khedira will be the man to make way in January despite the fact that he still has one year to run on his Juventus contract.

Brazilian international Arthur signed for Juventus from Barcelona in a swap deal with Miralem Pjanic, while young American international McKennie has joined on loan from Schalke 04 in the German Bundesliga.

Sami Khedira joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2015 and he has won the league title in each of his five seasons in Turin.

He has not been a regular for Juventus in recent seasons. The German made just one assist in the league last season as he was restricted to 12 games.
