Welcome to our media clock from Liverpool.com. Maybe not the first, we’ve definitely done transfer summaries and European summaries so I think in some ways it’s not that new at all. Anyway, we thought we were going to step into the world of football in a broad and awkward way for you and have some fun with some of the stories and captions that make the daily lapses.
Liverpool sparked interest in the striker
West Ham star Jarrod Bowen is linked back to Liverpool just weeks after the transfer market closed.
The Reds could reportedly return for the 24-year-old who has impressed again for the Hammers this season.
Bowen has played through the middle of the pitch while Mikhail Antonio was suspended and has proven he can take on that role – something Liverpool would undoubtedly address.
But the price is likely always the crux of the matter: West Ham paid at least £ 22 million for it and could now reasonably be charging almost double that.
Merson makes Alisson claim
Pandit Paul Merson has claimed that Tottenham have as good a player as Alisson Becker in Hugo Lloris.
“He’s a world champion,” Merson said at 90min. “I don’t think he’s getting the recognition he deserves, I think he’s very underrated.
“You don’t talk about him in the same category as Ederson or Alisson, but for me he’s a top goalkeeper and he makes big saves.”
With Alisson and Ederson, however, it is about much more than “big austerity measures” …
Jude Bellingham “Note”
Reece James really doesn’t know Jude Bellingham that well …
For a ‘Roommates’ video on the English YouTube channel, James had to guess who Bellingham would trade jerseys with and chose Frank Lampard over Steven Gerrard, much to the shock of the Borussia Dortmund star.
“It’s Stevie G bro,” was Bellingham’s reply. Quite right too.
Allan Saint-Maximin linked
According to the Newcastle Chronicle, Liverpool are one of several teams linked in a transfer crash for Newcastle United star man Allan Saint-Maximin.
Saint-Maximin’s injury history is far from perfect, but he has been involved in 66 percent of the goals his team has scored this season and he would offer something of a wild card option at Anfield.
£ 30million is the supposed price, with Arsenal and Everton also cited as possible targets for the player who will almost inevitably move on sooner rather than later.
Liverpool take part in the Erling Haaland transfer race
The star of Borussia Dortmund and Norway is being followed by most clubs who can afford him next summer. Mundo Deportivo now claim that Liverpool will definitely be one of them.
The report says the clause put in the deal to sign Haaland is £ 77m – not the £ 68m previously requested elsewhere – and that Liverpool, Barcelona, Real Madrid and more are interested in it are.
“Of course it will be difficult [to keep him]. But I’m not saying that it is completely out of the question, “said Bundesliga club chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke this week.
“We will do everything we can to ensure that our top players remain loyal to us in the future.”
