Report: Liverpool close to signing 28 y/o int’l on a bargain deal

Report: Liverpool close to signing 28 y/o int'l on a bargain deal – originally posted on Sportslens.com Liverpool are close to securing a deal for Aissa Mandi from Real Betis on a bargain deal, according to reports from Daily Star.

However, signing a defender is a necessity following the departure of Dejan Lovren, who has joined Zenit St Petersburg. The Croatia international made the switch after staying six years at Anfield, and his departure leaves a void in the team. The report claims that Liverpool ar...

Report: West Ham make enquiry for 28-yr-old La Liga player Jurgen Klopp is looking at

West Ham United are interested in signing the Real Betis defender Aissa Mandi this summer. The player has been linked with Liverpool as well but recent reports (via Liverpool Echo) claim that the Hammers have asked about the player and they could make their move for the centre back in the coming months. Liverpool want him to replace Dejan Lovren in the side. The Croatian left for Zenit St Petersburg recently in order to play more often. The Reds are certainly a more attractive option than West Ham for any player but it will be interesting to see whether the player is willing to accept a backup role at Anfield. Van Dijk, Gomez and Matip are all ahead of him in the pecking order. At West Ham, he is more likely to start every week. That could tilt things in the Hammers’ favour if the player i...

Lille wish Victor Osimhen best of luck at Napoli

French club, LOSC Lille have issued an official statement to wish former player, Victor Osimhen, the very best of luck after the Nigeria striker completed his move to Napoli.

Lille owner, Gerard Lopez revealed getting ‘multiple offers’ for the Super Eagles ace before manager, Christophe Galtier, confirmed last month that Osimhen will be moving on. Osimhen only signed for the French Ligue 1 club last year from Sporting Charleroi after impressing on loan at the B...

‘Didn’t want it to happen’: Report claims which two PL clubs opposed Newcastle takeover

After 18-long weeks, the Newcastle United takeover saga has come to an abrupt end after the Saudi Arabia-led consortium has withdrawn its bid to buy the club. The consortium, led by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund and also involving Amanda Staveley and the Reuben Brothers, had been waiting for a decision from the Premier League.

Rivaldo: Philippe Coutinho could be a regular at Arsenal or Spurs

Rivaldo says a return to the Premier League is the “best option” for Philippe Coutinho to take this summer, and that the Barcelona flop “could be a regular starter” at Arsenal or Tottenham next season. Coutinho is due to head back to Barca at the end of the season following a loan spell at Bayern Munich, who have already decided against signing the midfielder on a permanent deal. Quique Setien, who inherited the managerial reins at Camp Nou in January, insisted that the 28-year-old could be a part of his plans for next season when addressing speculation over his future during the coronavirus-enforced lockdown. However, Coutinho’s agent revealed this week that there’s been “a lot of genuine interest” in his client over the past few months, and that he would like to secure a move back to Eng...

Report: Manchester City close to signing £30m Liverpool target, verbal agreement reached

After triumphing in their legal battle to have Uefa’s two-year European ban overturned, Manchester City are now ready to spend big in the transfer market.

Predicted Liverpool starting XI: Klopp to make four changes, 25-year-old to start

Premier League champions Liverpool will face Newcastle United in the final game of the season at St James’ Park on Sunday. It has been a memorable season for the Reds, as they won three trophies to add to last year’s Champions League. The most precious one would be the Premier League which finally returned to Merseyside after 30 years. The Reds collected the silverware in midweek after a 5-3 win over Chelsea. With nothing to play for, except trying to set a club record of 99 points for the season, Jurgen Klopp is likely to make changes to the side that won against the Blues in the midweek. Jordan Henderson is injured for this game. Joel Matip is also sidelined until the summer. Adam Lallana hasn’t featured and the club will not take the risk to jeopardise his move away on a free trans...

Jürgen Klopp reaffirms praise for Thiago Alcantara as Liverpool rumours grow

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has once again responded to Thiago speculation, confirming that he’s a ‘great player’ but remaining coy on any potential transfer developments. The 29-year-old has refused to sign a contract extension at Bayern with just one year remaining on his current deal, and the rumours linking him to a Liverpool switch have only grown stronger in time. “I have no idea who will play for me next year, there is nothing to say at the moment,” he told Sky Germany. “Thiago Alcantara is a great player, but also a Bayern Munich player. That’s actually all there is to say. There’s nothing to say!” To further distance himself from the Thiago links, Klopp confirmed that Liverpool will ‘need time’ before they decide to make any summer transfers. “We have a really good squad, we have ...
