Tielemans has transfer message, £60 million Man United hijacking, Liverpool told to sign Prem midfielder
Here is a roundup of the latest Liverpool and Manchester United news
On-loan Leicester star Youri Tielemans has told the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal that he is unsure on his future.
There has been a lot of speculation about whom Spanish boss Unai Emery could try and acquire during the summer transfer window to improve the squad, and get the side challenging for the Premier League title once again.
And there has also been some talk that United could make a move for Tielemans, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also looks for players that could come in and help improve the side.
And one name that has been mentioned in recent weeks is that of Tielemans, who completed a temporary switch from Monaco to Leicester and has quickly become a popular figure at the King Power Stadium, notching up three assists and one goal in his league appearances.
.And now Tielemans has admitted he is unsure what will be happening with his future during the summer transfer window.
‘Normally, I’ll go back to Monaco this summer, unless something moves, but that’s not the case at the moment,’ Tielemans told VTM.
‘When things go well, of course, you want it to stay that way. ‘
“But I do not know how it’s going to go or how much Monaco are going to ask.’ (Read More)
Liverpool must target Leicester midfielder James Maddison to add some creativity to their workhorse midfield, Steve Nicol has told Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool boss Klopp has put together one of the best squads in football over the last few seasons with some smart transfer deals, and he looks set to improve the squad once again in the summer.
The German knows he needs to add a bit more depth to his midfield, especially with James Milner and Jordan Henderson getting on in years, and Klopp reportedly feels that an adequate alternative needs to be signed.
And that has led to speculation that Liverpool may look to rival Arsenal for the services of Maddison, who has become one of the most hard-working players in the Premier League this season.
Leicester have pretty much built a side around him and will not want to part ways in the summer window, but some reports have suggested that a fee of £20 million could tempt Leicester into seeling.
And Nicol has urged Klopp to splash the cash and try to sign Maddison, as the Liverpool side needs to be tweaked a little in the transfer window.
“Klopp’s recent three in the middle of the park for Liverpool, over the last couple of years particularly, has been about gaining possession back, about closing the opposition back, about working really hard and then getting the ball to the front three,” Nicol told ESPN.
“I would love to see a little change in that with somebody like Maddison, who no question has already shown in the Premier League, from the middle of the park, he can open defences up, he can create chances.” (Read More)
There has been some reports which have claimed Arsenal are ready to battle Manchester United to the signature of Harry Maguire.
Arsenal have one of the best attacks in world football and have got to the Europa League final with their ability to score more then they conceded.
However, the back-line is simply not good enough and Unai Emery will need to delve into his transfer kitty and improve the back-line.
And reports on the Sun website have now claimed that Arsenal are ready to rival United for the signature of Maguire.
United have been tracking Maguire all season and were ready to try and complete a transfer deal during the January window, but Leicester did not want to sell the big man and he had no intention of leaving.
But he wants to play in the Champions League and right now United cannot offer that to him, especially as they are so far behind their Premier League rivals, it could take a few seasons for them to get back to their best.
