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.

Liverpool Eyeing Summer Move For Napoli Midfielder

Premier League title contenders Liverpool are reportedly plotting a summer move for Napoli midfielder Piotr Zelinski.

The 24-year-old has previously been linked with a move to Liverpool.

According to the publication from Calciomercato, the Polish international player is back on the radar of the Merseyside club despite recent reports which revealed that Napoli are close to signing him on a new contract at the club.

Zelinski was recently part of the Polish team that crashed out of last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

Poland and Piotr Zelinski finished bottom of Group F at the tournament behind Senegal, Japan and group leaders Colombia.

Piotr Zelinski came close to joining Liverpool in 2016 only for him to sign for Napoli from fellow Italian Serie A club Udinese.

He has grown to become an important player for Napoli since his move to the club.

The 24-year-old has scored four goals in 26 league appearances to propel them into the top two spots on the Italian Serie A table.

In total, Piotr Zelinski has scored five goals in 36 games in all competitions.

The Liverpool midfield has been heavily criticised for lack of goals and the signing of Zelinski would go a long way to add cutting edge and ruthlessness to the Reds’ midfield.

Liverpool Defender Named On Barcelona Transfer Shortlist For Left-backs

Liverpool star Alberto Moreno is on a three-man transfer shortlist at Barcelona who are in the market for a new left-sided defender.

Barcelona want to sign a backup for first choice left-back Jordi Alba and they have drawn up a list of three players as a result.

Spanish media outlet Sport claim that the three-man shortlist includes Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno, Arsenal star Nacho Monreal and Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis.

Jordi Alba is the undisputed first choice at left-back and the Spaniard recently signed a new five-year contract at the club to further highlight his importance in the Barcelona setup.

Jordi Alba could face the threat of Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno for a spot at left-back next season.

Spanish international left-back Moreno has been heavily linked with Barcelona in the past.

His Liverpool contract will run out this summer and the player is not willing to extend his stay at Anfield.

Alberto Moreno joined Liverpool in the summer of 2014 in a deal worth £12m after helping Spanish La Liga club Sevilla to the Europa League title under manager Unai Emery.

He has not been able to secure a spot in the Liverpool team in recent seasons due to the emergence of first choice left-back Andy Robertson.

Liverpool Chief Gives Big Update On Transfers

Liverpool director Billy Hogan has provided a big transfer update that will be music to the ears of the Reds’ faithful.

Billy Hogan is the managing director at Liverpool and he has revealed that manager Jurgen Klopp will have money to spend when the transfer window reopens.

This is coming on the back of recent reports that Liverpool manager might not be able to strengthen his team adequately due to the planned development on their Stadium.

Billy Hogan allayed those fears in his recent interview with fcbusiness as he confirmed that funds will be made available for the Liverpool manager amidst the Stadium renovation plans.

Earlier this month, Liverpool posted pre-tax profits of £125m for the last financial year and it took into account the £75m signing of Dutch international centre back Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton and the £142m transfer of Philippe Coutinho to Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona.

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool spent the most money during last summer’s transfer window.

The Reds spent £173m on transfers last summer following the acquisition of Naby Keita and Fabinho from RB Leipzig and AS Monaco respectively.

Liverpool also signed Swiss international Xerdan Shaqiri from Stoke City while Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker joined the club from AS Roma.
