Liverpool told Tonali best in Italy, Jimenez message sent, Reds told to sign up Havertz in Liverpool roundup…
Liverpool and Arsenal transfer target Sandro Tonali has been widely dubbed ‘the next Andrea Pirlo’
Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been talked about alot during the coronavirus, with both expected to do some transfer business in the summer and improve on what they currently have.
Liverpool are on the verge of becoming Premier League Champions, so only need to add some depth to the side in the summer as Jurgen Klopp will be keen to keep this club heading forwards.
Arsenal on the other-hand are seeking to get back into the same level of Liverpool and are expected to spend some serious money on improving the side, especially as Mikel Arteta could lose some of his star players.
And they have both been linked with a move for Tonali, who has been setting the Seria A alight over the past few seasons, so much so, that Andrea Pirlo has come out and claimed he is the best player in the Italian League.
“He is very good but he is different from me on the pitch,” Pirlo told Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport.
“He has everything to be a champion but he is more a midfielder for a two-man midfield.
“He could already play for a great team; he is the best in this league.”
Brescia owner Massimo Cellino has previously claimed Liverpool have spoken to him about the three-cap Italy international, while United were last year linked with a swoop to sign the wonderkid.
“In my view, he’d be better off remaining with Brescia,” the former Leeds United owner said.
“The other day, his agent and his parents were telling me about this €50m evaluation. I replied that for me he is worth €300m, which means I don’t want to sell.”
The father of Wolverhampton Wanderers striker and Liverpool target Raul Jimenez has admitted his son is flattered by transfer rumours linking him with a move to several European giants.
Jimenez has become one of the most talked about players this season after another impressive campaign with Wolves, which he has shown his true ability and quality on that pitch on a weekly basis.
His performances this season has led to alot of speculation in the media about his next club, with the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, United and Juventus have all been suggested as potential destinations for the 29-year-old who has scored 22 goals this season.
Now, his father has come out and admitted that his son is flattered by all the interest that has been shown: “Raul has always said so, it’s something very cool” Raul Jimenez Snr told Medio Tiempo.
“He’s very happy at his club, hopefully getting into positions for Champions League and Europa League at the moment. Always for him, all of that will be very gratifying, very cool to hear those comments.
“Right now is the time of rumours, God willing the league hopefully resumes next month and that’s where we are right now.
“The rest, there is nothing. He’s only commented on what he sees that they publish, but nothing at the moment.
“Later if there is something different, it will be seen. But now, yes, they are mere speculation and rumours.”
Liverpool require a player in the mould of Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes, and have been urged to sign Kai Havertz
The season may be stopped and there may be time between now and the summer to discuss possible targets for Jurgen Klopp, but that has not stopped all the speculation linking the club with a £100 million move for Bundesliga sensation Havertz.
Havertz has become one of the most sought after players in the game, as he has scored 20 goals and provided four assists in all competition this season, meaning that this will be his most productive campaign to date.
Liverpool know that they need to improve in key areas of the pitch if they are to challenge for that Premier League title again in the coming years, and have been linked with a move for Havertz for some time now.
Now, ex-Liverpool star Jan Molby believes sought-after Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz a very good option for Jurgen Klopp.
“It might hurt me to say this a little bit, but if you look at the impact Bruno Fernandes has had at Manchester United, now I would love Liverpool to sign that type of a midfield player,” Reds legend Molby told Hotel Tia.
“A midfield player that brings something different to what James Milner or Naby Keita or Georginio Wijnaldum or Jordan Henderson brings.
“Who would that be? We could go back to Germany, they play Monday night, Leverkusen, the young boy Kai Havertz looks a really, really good player.”
Havertz is still very young and has many years of developing to do, so yes he does not need to make that move to the premier League just yet.
Liverpool would be a very good move for the lad to make, but right now, do Liverpool actually need to spend so much money on acquiring his services? or can they wait a couple more years?
However, it will be interesting to see just whom Klopp spends his money on because surely he will be looking to improve key areas of the side in the summer window?
