Brazilian backs Alves to Liverpool talk, Agent announces midfielder wants summer move, striker officially signs with Liverpool
Here is a roundup of the latest Liverpool news from icfootballnews.
The agent of Leipzig star Emil Forsberg has confirmed that his client is looking to leave the club, having previous been linked with the likes of Liverpool this transfer window.
Forsberg has remained loyal to Leipzig over the seasons despite all the speculation linking him with a big money move to the Premier League with one of its biggest clubs, the Gunners, who have been linked with a move ever since Arsene Wenger was impressed.
But the Gunners interest has wavered over the past few transfer windows and that has led to speculation in the media that Jurgen Klopp may try and secure a bargain transfer deal this summer.
It is no secret that Klopp is seeking to improve his side this summer, as he seeks to add a bit more strength in depth to his side as he seeks to beat off Manchester City for that Premier League title.
Now, Forsberg’s agent has criticised RB Leipzig over broken promises, and to either give his client a pay rise or put him on the transfer list.
“Emil is obviously disappointed, he has a chance to take the next step, and now the people who made promises to him last year do not stick to it,” he said on the TalkSport website.
Liverpool have announced that Divock Origi has committed his future to the club after signing a new long-term contract.
Origi, 24, scored crucial goals against Barcelona and Tottenham in the Champions League last season, as well as a Merseyside derby winner against Everton in the Premier League.
However, in total the Belgian made just 21 appearances across all competitions scoring seven times and contributing one assist, which has led to a lot of transfer speculation that he could leave the club in the coming weeks.
But after his heroics for Liverpool last season, he has become somewhat of a cult-hero after an added-time derby winner against Everton before scoring twice in the 4-0 Champions League semi-final second leg success over Barcelona and then again in the final victory over Tottenham in Madrid.
And he has now earned himself a nice new deal at the club which means he will get the opportunity to help Jurgen Klopp challenge for the Premier League title next season.
“I’m very happy to be able to sign this contract and it gives you a boost at the beginning of the season, as well as the end of the season last year. So I’m very happy,” Origi said on the LFC website.
Liverpool need to delve into their transfer kitty this summer and acquire some more top-class players that will improve the side, and they now have enough money to do that, so they do not need to sell anymore players.
Brazilian legend Kleberson has backed Dani Alves to join Liverpool this summer transfer window and insists he would fit in under Jurgen Klopp.
The PSG right-back has played for a number of Europe’s top clubs, including Barcelona and Juventus, and has still shown over the last few seasons that he is still able to compete at the very highest level on a consistent basis.
He has been long linked with a move to the Premier League, with reports suggesting United even tried to make a move way before he eventually signed for the French Champions Just a few seasons ago, and with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking to improve the squad this transfer window, there has been some claims that the Reds could in fact offer him a switch to the Premier League.
But there has been some speculation in the media over the past few weeks which have claimed that Liverpool may decide to offer the Brazilian a shock deal to make the move to Anfield, as they seek to bolster their squad this transfer window.
And former Brazil ace Kleberson reckons he would be a good fit at Liverpool, telling your-promotional-code.co.uk: “I wanted to get Dani Alves to join me in the MLS! He’s a phenomenal player with amazing quality.
“I feel maybe could fit in well at Liverpool and Klopp would like him as a style of player. He’s very technical, fast and has an incredible temperament in the big games. He’s a winner.”
