Liverpool is considering a move for Monaco’s young talent Aurelien Tchouameni as Champions League winners Divock Origi and Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain face a potential exit at Anfield amidst interests from Premier League sides West ham and Southampton respectively.


The Reds face competition from Serie A side Juventus in a bid to secure a move for the 21-year-old.


The Ligue 1 young player of the season made 44 appearances across all competitions, scoring four goals and providing four assists in the process, catching the eye of a host of major European clubs.

It is believed that Monaco values him at around £25.5million and the Reds are thought to be seriously considering making a move with a bid worth that fee.


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is looking forward to bolstering the areas in which his squad is lacking before the summer transfer window closes at the end of August.


The Merseyside club has only made one signing this summer, completing a move for French defender, Ibrahima Konate from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig at the start of the transfer window.

Klopp is also keen to improve his midfield, with the likes of Internazionale’s Nicolo Barella and Athletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez reported of interest recently.


Chamberlain could make a return to St Mary’s with The Saints eyeing a loan move for the England International, 10 years after leaving Southampton to join Arsenal.


He then went on to join Liverpool in 2017 for £35million but has struggled with injuries in the last four seasons, missing a total of 74 matches due to injury in this time.

The 27-year-old could leave Anfield with Liverpool open to offers after he only managed 13 games in the Premier League last season.


West Ham is looking to capitalize on the reduction in Divock Origi’s asking price at Liverpool as they begin negotiations for the Belgian forward.


Despite signing a new deal as recently as 2019, Liverpool is open to offers worth £15million for the 26-year-old, a drop from the £20million valuation of the player in January.

Wolves had been linked with Origi during the winter transfer window but it is the Hammers who are now leading the hunt for the striker.

Jurgen Klopp has good news for Liverpool fans

Jurgen Klopp provided a team update during his pre-match press conference ahead of Liverpool’s encounter against Brentford.

Klopp claims the Reds had picked up a few knocks following their clash against Arsenal on Thursday night. The boss, on the other hand, maintains that the medical team has informed him that all of the players involved should be able to play against the Bees.

With star players away at the African Cup of Nations, the Reds need to make sure they don’t have any more selection concerns, and happily, despite a few knocks, they appear to have gotten through a physically demanding match against the Gunners relatively unharmed.

“As far as I know there are no real injuries. We got knocks last night, Robbo got a knock, Virg got a knock, Millie got a knock, but directly after the game, the medical department told me they would all be fine, but we will see. There are no ‘injuries’ so far, so it should be the same squad available like for the game against Arsenal,” Jurgen Klopp said.

Following the postponement of their Carabao Cup match, the Reds’ fixture slate has become extremely crowded, so fitness and injuries will have been a major concern.

Fortunately, it appears that Liverpool will be able to field a relatively strong XI against Brentford this Saturday, and while Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Naby Keita will all be absent, this update has given Liverpool the best possible opportunity of beating Brentford this weekend.

Liverpool player wants to leave, Reds willing to accept his request

Liverpool player wants to leave, Reds willing to accept his request

Neco Williams wishes to leave the club this month, and the club is willing to let him go.

Williams, according to Sky Sports, is concerned about his lack of game time as the World Cup play-offs approach.

Williams does not want his lack of regular game time at Liverpool to force him to fall out of contention for a place in the Wales national squad.

Williams appears to have no chance of breaking into Liverpool’s starting lineup, with Alexander-Arnold always in form.

The Reds are ‘sympathetic’ to Williams’ situation and will allow him to leave if the right offer is made in.

Williams, who was dubbed ‘excellent’ by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain earlier this season, could leave on loan or permanently, with Liverpool reportedly open to either option.

Because of Conor Bradley’s progress at Liverpool, the Reds aren’t entirely opposed to losing Williams and elevating the Northern Irishman.

Both Leeds United and Aston Villa were interested in signing Williams this summer and could be viable options this month.

Leeds are in need of defensive reinforcements, and Williams might be the right back of the future.

Although Villa have Matty Cash at right back, Williams can provide strong opposition for Liverpool veteran Steven Gerrard.

Expert issues ‘shock’ verdict on Ricardo Pereira comeback date

Expert issues 'shock' verdict on Ricardo Pereira comeback date

Despite a broken leg, Leicester City’s Ricardo Pereira might be out for as little as “six to eight weeks.”

According to Ben Dinnery, who operates the Premier Injuries website and has a background in medical and data analysis, this is the case.

In last Wednesday’s League Cup match at Anfield, Tyler Morton, 19, of Liverpool, avoided a red card for his rash challenge on Ricardo Pereira.

As reported by The Sun last Sunday (26 December), Brendan Rodgers stated that Pereira had a “fractured fibula” as a result of the challenge.

It was the right-first back’s game back following a 12-match layoff due to a hamstring injury.

But, as Dinnery says, Pereira’s injury isn’t as serious as the average person may think.

“We say broken leg and think it’s always long-term, but it shocks some people to know that’s not always true,” he told Football Insider‘s, Adam Williams.

“It’s a fractured fibula, so it’s non-weight-bearing. He isn’t exactly pain-free but on the scale of injuries, it isn’t too serious.

“There have been examples of players returning in four or five weeks. I would suggest in this instance that it is more likely to be six to eight weeks.

“If we were looking at an ACL then it’s a significant amount of time on the sidelines, so he’ll be grateful it isn’t that.

“I’m not aware of any plans for surgery, so we can assume that it is non-displaced and doesn’t need any fixation.”
