Fabrizio Romano opens up on Liverpool’s lack of transfer activity

Published

Italian transfer expert and Sky reporter Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that the English Premier League title holders, Liverpool will not sign any player or a central defender in this January winter transfer window.

The Merseyside outfit have been hit with serious injury situations that have left Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez out for a lengthy period and Romano has confirmed exclusively to Anfield Watch that little is now going to change with the Reds’ stance in this window:

Amid so much speculation in recent weeks, “Obviously, in this window, it’s been really complicated for all the top clubs to make any moves,” Romano said.

“Every top club is having problems in this window so the position for Liverpool was they would only go for important players if available this month, as has been the case in the last few years and that’s why they’ve won trophies.

“Liverpool have said if they can’t get their top targets they won’t sign anybody and they’ll stay with their current team, this has been the mentality for the last few years and it’s been perfect because they’ve won everything.

“It’s also so smart because they are saving money for the future to do something important in the summer, as they did with Diogo Jota last summer.

“They prefer not to sign players like Sokratis. He was offered to Liverpool but they said ‘no’ and that they prefer to keep with the current team, they prefer this mentality and that has been the key in recent years for Liverpool and it will continue like this.

“I don’t expect anything big in the coming days because if they wanted a centre-back they’ve already had three weeks to sign one and they’ve now got Joel Matip back from injury.

“Obviously, they have problems [with the centre-back situation] but with this market and with the difficult economic situation for top clubs, spending money on centre-backs that they don’t trust isn’t smart for Liverpool.”

Meanwhile, manager Jurgen Klopp has kept faith with the players available to get back into form and return to winning ways.

“I know much better than you imagine how many bad things happen out there. What we try to do, and we do this in positive times as well, is we cut out the outside world when we come together, so we focus and talk only about football.

“Yes, of course, there are much more serious problems out there, but at the moment when we are on the pitch the only problem we can solve, the only thing we have to focus on is the football problem.

“We have the chance to sort the football problem and that is what we do. We want to get something tomorrow night obviously, and we will try absolutely everything.”

Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

How Liverpool fans react to Callum’s transfer rumours

Published

on

Chelsea star, Callum Hudson-Odoi has been tipped to leave the Stamford Bridge before the transfer window shuts and Liverpool fans have been discussing the prospect of the winger heading to Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp has only made one signing and Reds supporters are still hoping there will be a last-gasp addition of Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has been mentioned as a possible option for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

The England winger has gone down the pecking order in Thomas Tuchel’s squad and could move away from Stamford Bridge before the deadline passes.

Learning of the interest and possible move, the fans have gushed to the social media to talk about it.

Some believe he would be a solid acquisition.

@indykalia: “Anyone think Callum Hudson-Odoi would be perfect for Liverpool?”

@kop_for_ever: “At this point our fanbase will say yes to any forward other than Origi”

@okekemezie1: “He is good. Just needs to find a good environment and coach for him. Remember two years ago Bayern wanted to pay big money for him, [they] wanted him badly.”

@SamuelLFC: “I’d take any attacker at this point”

@LFCryan_: “Would be a great signing. Being used poorly by Chelsea and I still believe has the talent to be one of Englands best players in the future. When he was a youth player he was miles ahead of the other players.”

However, a number of Reds fans are unsure as to whether or not Hudson-Odoi is the right kind of profile.

@KopDXB19: “Doesn’t suit our system as he plays in Mo [ Salah ]’s position. He prefers to go on the outside and get crosses in for a type of striker we just don’t have!”

@AndrewH48696976: “Personally I would prefer we make a big offer for Raphinha (now that Leeds are signing Dan James). Raphinha more a Liverpool type player with pace, dribbling skills and can finish.”

@medical_photo: “If he can’t get near Chelsea’s first 11 how on earth would he get near Liverpool’s? He needs to go to someone like Southampton and play 30 – 40 games in a row so it can be seen if he is a player with real potential or a player who used to have potential.”

@JpNOkwuba: ” Is he different, or better than Ox? I feel we should go for a player capable of going straight into the team, a player that can confidently play instead of Mane or Salah. I’m not sure that player is Odoi.”

Liverpool given big transfer mandate, could be next season

Former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood has urged Liverpool to be in the race for Tottenham forward Harry Kane next season.

Harry Kane was linked with a move this summer transfer window but that did not happen. Reports had linked him with a move to Man City but the Etihad team seem not to be interested anymore.

The England international has now been tipped to still make the move in the coming summer transfer window.

Harry Kane has a asking price of £150 million but Daniel Levy is unwilling to lower it for the 28-year-old.

Sherwood is now suggesting that Liverpool could be an option for the forward as a move could happen next summer window.

“For me, it looks like it might be now or never,” he said on Sky Sports.

“Harry Kane, at the end of next season, I think he stays there for the whole season, even though he said that he is staying ‘for this summer’.

“Other teams, like Man City probably go for Erling Haaland now. On a £70 million buy, so that blocks the pathway. He won’t leave for leaving sake.

“He will leave because he needs to go to a club where he knows they can win.

“Now, that’s probably Liverpool in the Premier League, Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea. It won’t be Chelsea now because they have signed Romelu Lukaku.

“I can see him staying there for the remainder of his career.

“That could be the only one, couldn’t it? Man United because Ronaldo isn’t going to be there forever.”

Kane made his first Premier League start of the season on Sunday as Tottenham continued their perfect start to the campaign with a 1-0 win over Watford. He was expected to push for a move away from the North London club but he did not.
