Here is a roundup of the top Liverpool news and gossip from icfootballnews that we think you guys may have missed today –
LIVERPOOL have been told the asking price that they will need to pay if they wish to sign Inter Milan star Nicolo Barella.
Liverpool have had one of the their worst seasons under Jurgen Klopp and need to freshen up that squad in the coming months.
That has led to so many transfer reports in the media lining the Reds with a number of possible targets – as Klopp wants certain types if players at the club.
Liverpool have been named as one of three Premier League clubs looking to sign Inter ace Nicolo Barella, with reports in Italy claiming that the Reds are prepared to make an offer.
It is said that while Nerazzurri boss Simone Inzaghi remains a fan of Barella, financial issues at the club may leave Inter open to a sale, and while a Champions League club is thought to appeal to Barella, the Reds are seen as a positive destination for the Italy star this summer.
Now – According to Calciomercatoweb, Liverpool have to splash a fee of €100m for Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella if they want to sign him in the summer.
As per the report, Liverpool will not stop after completing the signing of Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister and are ready to go all out for Barella
However, Liverpool may be up against it in terms of persuading Barella to opt for a Anfield switch ahead of the competition for his signature, with Newcastle United and Chelsea also in the running.
LIVERPOOL will continue to be linked with so many players over the next few months as there will surely be alot of transfer activity coming in and out of Anfield
Barella is a very good player that would add something different to the squad and it will be interesting to see if the Reds actually make a move.
MBAPPE PROMISE –
LIVERPOOL target Kylian Mbappe has promised to stay at Paris Saint-Germain next season after being named Ligue 1 Player of the Year for the fourth time in a row.
Mbappe is easily one of the most dangerous players in the world right now and a man that will eventually become the best player in the game – especially with Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi right at the back-end of their careers.
But despite the fact he has a massive contract at PSG – Their latest failings in the Champions League has led to more speculation that he could leave the French giants at the end of the season and test himself in the Premier League or La Liga.
However – Mbappe has now promised to stay at Paris Saint-Germain next season after being named Ligue 1 Player of the Year
Mbappe scored 28 goals in the French top flight to help the capital club secure the league crown once again.
“Next year I will play at Paris Saint-Germain, I still have a contract, I will honour my contract,” he told reporters.
Mbappe made the promise after he was crowned Ligue 1 Player of the Year at the UNFP awards ceremony for the fourth time in succession. The 24-year-old was also named in the Team of the Year alongside Lionel Messi.
Mbappe is one of the best footballers in the game – there is no doubt about that. But at the end of the day he will not reach his full potential if he stays at PSG.
He needs to be in the Premier League, La Liga or even the Bundesliga to even be considered as the best player in the game.
So maybe he will look to leave the French giants at the end of next season?
MAC ALLISTER BOOST –
Roberto De Zerbi has been speaking about the future of LIVERPOOL target Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo amid strong speculation about their futures –
According to recent reports on TyC Sports, Liverpool have now finalised a deal to sign Mac Allister from Brighton at the end of the season.
The report claims that Liverpool will pay Brighton in the region of £70 million for the World Cup winner.
Now – amid the speculation that Arsenal will once again make a move for the man at the end of the season – De Zerbi has admitted that Caicedo and Mac Allister may have played their last games for the club.
He told Sky Sports “I think it can be the last game of Alexis and Caicedo. I’m really sorry, because they are two great great players…
“I think it can be the last game for Alexis [Mac Allister] & Moises Caicedo.
“I am really sorry because they are two great players, but the policy of Brighton is like this. It is right that they can leave, they can play at a higher level.”
Ahead of his anticipated arrival to Anfield – McVennie recently claimed that Mac Allister may be a better option for the club than other top target Jude Bellingham
“The problem with Bellingham was the fee and the wages because he would have wanted top wages,” he told Football Insider.
“Mac Allister is a really good player and that might be more beneficial to Liverpool than Bellingham.
“I think they have got to get two or three players in midfield. It is time for the likes of Diaz and Nunez to step up now.
“I thought Bellingham was a great fit for them but I get it, it is an awful lot of money to spend on one player.“
Despite their poor season – LIVERPOOL are still one of the best sides in the world and adding a few players to the squad in the summer will reignite their quest to win more trophies.
Mac Allister is a man that is ready for that next step in his career and Liverpool will be a big move.
