Barcelona Favourites To Sign 19-Year-Old Liverpool

Spanish La Liga champions are the overwhelming favourites to sign highly rated Dutch centre back Matthijs De Ligt when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The 19-year-old plays his club football for Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam at the moment.

According to the publication from popular English media platform Daily Mirror, Barcelona are ahead of Liverpool in the race for the Dutch international player.

Mattihijs De Ligt enhanced his reputation as one of the best young defenders on the world football stage when he helped the Dutch national team to a crucial win over world champions France in their UEFA Nations League meeting on Friday night.

De Ligt lined up alongside the world’s most expensive defender Virgil Van Dijk as both centre back duo were hugely influential in the 2-0 win over the French team.

Van Dijk had earlier talked up a possible Liverpool transfer for De Ligt in his pre-match thoughts ahead of the United Nations League against France.

It seems like Van Dijk and Liverpool will have to look elsewhere for a new centre back.

Belgian Shot Stopper To Stay At Liverpool Until Summer

It has been revealed that Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet will stay at Anfield for the rest of the season.

This is according to renowned media outlet ESPN.

It was revealed that the Belgian international goalkeeper won’t be granted his desire to leave the club during the ongoing January transfer window.

The former Sunderland star wanted to leave the club last summer but the move was blocked by the club.

French Ligue 1 side Nice are long-term admirers of the Belgian shot stopper and could make a move for him if he’s available for a transfer.

Simon Mignolet has fallen out of favour at Liverpool following the arrival of Brazilian national team star Alisson Becker from Italian Serie A giants AS Roma.

Alisson joined the Reds in a then world record fee for a goalkeeper.

Liverpool paid £67m for his transfer only for Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to break that record days later with his £71m transfer to Chelsea from La Liga club Athletic Bilbao.

Mignolet played second fiddle to the Reds’ first choice goalkeeper Loris Karius last season and he has retained the same position in the present campaign despite the loan exit of Karius to Turkish giants Beskitas.

Alisson is the undisputed first choice goalkeeper at Liverpool this season.

Tottenham Targeting Liverpool Striker As Replacement For Injured Kane

Premier League title challengers Tottenham Hotspur are ruminating over a possible loan move for Liverpool striker Divock Origi according to various reports coming out of the British media.

According to The Sun, Tottenham want to sign the Belgian international star as a temporary replacement for the injured Harry Kane.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been ruled out of action for the next six weeks after sustaining a serious ankle injury.

Spurs confirmed that Harry Kane suffered ankle ligaments damage during the game against top four rivals Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

The club revealed that the England international skipper is not expected to return to training until the first week of March.

It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will be ready to release Divock Origi to fellow title challengers Tottenham Hotspur for the remainder of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur fell further adrift in the race for the league title when they were beaten 1-0 at home by the Red Devils.

The defeat ensured that Spurs are now nine points off Premier League pacesetters Liverpool.

Divock Origi has been on the fringes of the Liverpool team since he returned to the club this summer from a loan spell at German club VFL Wolfsburg last season.

Liverpool Transfer Target Confirms Salzburg Exit

Premier League leaders Liverpool have received a huge boost after major transfer target Moanes Dabour said that he will leave his club in few days time.

Red Bull Salzburg striker Dabour has fuelled talks about a possible Liverpool transfer after his confirmation that his exit from the Austrian club is imminent.

In his recent interview monitored by Spanish media outlet Estadio Deportivo, the Israeli international star revealed that he will leave Red Bull Salzburg in the next few days.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a transfer to Liverpool in a deal that could be around £22m.

Moanes Dabour has been in sensational form for Red Bull Salzburg over the last two years.

He scored 27 goals to fire the Europa League campaigners to the Austrian Bundesliga title last season and he has continued his goalscoring form this term.

Dabour has found the back of the net 16 terms in the new campaign including six goals in six games during the Europa League campaign in the second half of last year.

He would certainly provide firepower to his next team which could be Liverpool.

The Merseysiders need a new striker after Dominic Solanke joined fellow Premier League side Bournemouth in a £19m deal.

Apart from the Reds, Spanish La Liga giants Valencia are also said to be interested in a move for the in-form Israeli attacker.
