Why Liverpool Should Return for Julian Draxler

Why Liverpool Should Return for Julian Draxler

Following a superbly eye-catching Confederations Cup, the stock of one former German wunderkind turned peripheral star seems to have not been higher. Julian Draxler, formerly of Schalke and VfLWolfsburg, is a name hitting the rumour mill once again, with the news that Paris Saint-Germain are set to continue on their path to utter and total supremacy via the purchase of Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe. A forward arsenal of Mbappé, Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Àngel Di Maria, Lucas Moura, Goncalo Guedes and Javier …
Liverpool's Uncharted August

Liverpool's Uncharted August

Early in July we all  had our favorite Liverpool writer we looked to for transfer intel, but those usually clued-in were mostly silent.  Into the void stepped a new batch of ITK’s with exotic ties to unnamed “sources” from far away lands. We quietly hoped they had it right.  They didn’t. Curiously, they were all telling similar tales, that Liverpool would at least have the second of their top three targets leaning on walls and swapping stories about their Istanbul …

5 Players In Need Of A Loan Move This Summer

Liverpool are set for a crucial summer transfer window with quality additions needed to get the squad ready to fight on all fronts ahead of a new campaign. Mohamed Salah has started the trend, making the move from AS Roma in a £36.9million deal. The ex-Chelsea man’s high-profile move sees him as the club’s new record transfer, replacing Andy Carroll, much to the delight of the fan base. Plenty more players are expected to pose for the infamous Melwood lean, …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

With Arsenal stalling on a new deal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool are among a number of clubs linked with a summer move. That’s caused somewhat of a stir from the fan-base, with the reaction varying from apprehension to excitement. If the Ox decides to seek pastures new, Netbet have Liverpool as the favourites to land the attacker. Joining Southampton at the age of seven, Chamberlain propelled himself into the first-team picture in 2010, making his debut at the age of 16. An …

Scouting Luan - The Silky Brazilian

The rumours are coming thick and fast, and while Liverpool stumbles their way towards one form of European football – preferably the Champions League – Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his resolve to improve his team significantly in the summer. Included in that improvement would be a backup attacker, who’s able to fill in when the likes of Firmino, Mané and Origi are unable to maintain the demanding schedule of a team making strides in Europe. Much will be made …
Why I would pay the £20m for Jonas Hector

Why I would pay the £20m for Jonas Hector

Jonas Hector is one of the latest players to be linked to Liverpool, with 1.FC Köln reportedly wanting £20m for the left-back. The sale of Brad Smith leaves Jürgen Klopp with no other specialist in the squad for that position to rival Alberto Moreno, whose injury has prompted the links with Hector to resurface. The club were also said to be in pursuit of Leicester City youngster Ben Chilwell, but with him signing a new contract, it appears any deal …
What Ruben Neves would bring to Liverpool

What Ruben Neves would bring to Liverpool

The link to Ruben Neves is a strange one. It's not out of the ordinary to see a player of his profile being linked with a move to Liverpool in the media. He's young, talented and has a huge resale value if he lives up to his potential. He ticks the boxes. It's that formula, the basic profile for many FSG signings, which makes linking players to Liverpool fairly easy for the press in their quest for clicks. What is …
Don’t Get Down over Transfer Talk

Don’t Get Down over Transfer Talk

Wimbledon. The British Grand Prix. Glastonbury. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. All much loved and well established summer staples. For Liverpool fans, online transfer speculation can be added to that list. Once football seasons end (and occasionally before they draw to their usual disappointing conclusion for supporters of the Reds), fans’ attention diverts immediately to transfer talk. Initially, supporters assess the squad for weaknesses based on the previous nine months of frustration and heartache and identify areas of the team they …
Alternatives to Gladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud

Alternatives to Gladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud

As things stand Gladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud is currently the top target for Liverpool this Summer. Reliable journalists like Paul Joyce reported Liverpool's interest a few weeks back and since then most of the reports from various online publications highlight this. As we all know though, things can change with Liverpool and how they brief the media. Next week another player could be the 'top target' and the club will be 'doing all they can to sign them'. Liverpool's recent …
What would signing Mario Gotze mean for Coutinho?

What would signing Mario Gotze mean for Coutinho?

Early last week German tabloids started to report that Bayern Munich weren't in contract negotiations with Mario Gotze to have him commit his future to the club. That's not to say he won't be offered a new contract but by all accounts Bayern tend to get their contract sorted before Christmas. With less than 18 months remaining on his current Bayern deal could the little German be on the move this summer, and would a reunion with Klopp be something …
