Selling Dejan Lovren - another gamble

Selling Dejan Lovren - another gamble

Reports in the media today strongly suggest that Dejan Lovren is headed to Italy on a permanent deal. He did not travel with the team to Istanbul, so it's quite possible the rumours are based on reality than your regular summer click-bait. The Croat found himself down the pecking order after representing his country in the World Cup final last summer. After undoubtedly the highlight of his career at that point, Lovren was plagued by injuries for most of last …
The real reason Liverpool shouldn't sign Philippe Coutinho

The real reason Liverpool shouldn't sign Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho’s rumoured availability has resulted in all logic going right out of the window.  With Liverpool failing to add to their squad this summer, fans are desperate to bring him in back on loan. Not just to give the Reds some much needed attacking depth, but to keep the Brazilian maestro away from rivals with Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs all reportedly keen on the Barcelona attacker.  It’s a powerplay. One adopted by various Premier League clubs throughout the …
Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has continuously been linked with a move to Italy this summer. The Croatian centre half, 30, was a rumoured target for A.C. Milan, with the Rossoneri apparently eager to lend a central defender this summer. Now, however, it appears the San Siro side have competition for the former Southampton and Lyon man's signature from their Serie A rival's, AS Roma. According to a report in La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Roma have turned their attentions towards Lovren …
Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

It's the transfer rumour that just won't go away. The will he, won't he. The shall we, shan't we. Does the heart rule the head or is it the other way around. The summer saga (for want of a better word) for Liverpool fans this summer is whether their fallen hero, Philippe Coutinho, will make a dramatic return to Anfield after what has proven to be an ill-fated 18 months at Barcelona. After raking in the capital as a result …
Werner vs Pepe - who is the better fit for Liverpool?

Werner vs Pepe - who is the better fit for Liverpool?

Not long ago now, Timo Werner was the man the entire Liverpool fanbase wanted the Reds to sign. However, with interest from Bayern Munich well publicised and RB Leipzig seemingly not keen on selling the German international on the cheap despite his contract situation, interest in him waned and a new player replaced him as desirable number one.  Reports in France claimed Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team at Anfield liked Lille’s Nicolas Pepe. His 22 goal in Ligue 1 …
How ambitious do Liverpool need to be this summer?

How ambitious do Liverpool need to be this summer?

Most Liverpool fans are still in the process of readjusting to normality after the glorious events of Madrid, but formal preparations for next season will soon be underway. The first members of the squad will reconvene for pre-season training in only two and a half weeks' time and yet, all is quiet on the transfer front. As ever, there have been murmurs from sources across the continent, but we've yet to really be presented with concrete information on a target …
Lorenzo Insigne to Liverpool - is there any substance to the rumour?

Lorenzo Insigne to Liverpool - is there any substance to the rumour?

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is already looking to bolster his attacking options this summer with a big-money bid for Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne. According to the Italian publication, La Repubblica, Insigne could be tempted by the move to Anfield as the Napoli team which so nearly won the Serie A title under Maurizio Sarri last season begins to disband. Their midfield metronome, Jorginho, followed Sarri to Chelsea while the club's record goalscorer, Marek Hamsik, appears to be closing in on a …
Liverpool And The Coutinho Dilemma

Liverpool And The Coutinho Dilemma

I don’t like people messing about with Liverpool Football Club. In the same way others think that ancient scriptures should not be tampered with and that the word of the deities to which they sing should be unbendable, I am of the mind that no one should meddle with the central ethos of the club to further their own means. Of course, this is the textbook definition of zealotry and though I find it bitterly distasteful in others, my own …
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 …
