Liverpool are in the midst of a busy summer window as they look to build upon a brilliant season which saw them transform into challengers on the European stage once again. One area of focus for Jurgen Klopp this summer has been midfield, with Fabinho confirmed as a new arrival alongside Naby Keita in the centre of the park. The Reds have also targeted a move for Lyon star Nabil Fekir, but that deal collapsed at the last minute after a knee issue was uncovered during his medical. What is clear is that Klopp is targeting a strong midfield next season, and will inevitably look to add to that after the breakdown of the Fekir deal. And now an opportunity may have arisen for the Reds as they look to add in that area, with Calciomercato reporting that super agent Mino Raiola has offered PSG star Marco Verratti to Manchester United. The Italian outlet claim that the Italy international has been told to lose weight by new PSG boss Thomas Tuchel, with Real Madrid and Juventus monitoring the situation.========================================================= References: -https://live4liverpool.com/2018/06/view-from-the-kop/liverpool-must-hijack-verratti-offer/
Liverpool are set to make a second bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson after both Real Madrid's and Paris St Germain's interest in the Brazil World Cup star cooled report the Daily Star. The Reds interest in the 25-year-old has been documented for several months but among the various twists and turns, it seemed that Jurgen Klopp's hopes of landing him had been dashed last week as he supposedly closed in on a move to the Bernabeu. ========================================================= References: -https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/liverpool-return-alisson-second-bid-14801955
Tottenham's new stadium took another giant step towards completion as work continued in laying the retractable NFL pitch.The pristine green surface has started to light up the north London club's new 62,062-seater stadium.Tottenham's new stadium has been hailed as one of the country's most revolutionary to date and part of the design includes the retractable pitch to cater for both football games and NFL matches. The football pitch will be rolled out in three sections to overlay the NFL turf with the first American football match pencilled in for October 14 when the Seattle Seahawks play the Oakland Raiders.That is part of the ten-year agreement between Spurs and the NFL and it will come as welcome relief to those across the Atlantic to see the turf begin to be laid. Pictures of the ongoing construction shows four big screens have been put in place in each corner of the ground, while an LED lighting display hugs the exterior of the new arena.Lettering on the outside of the new stadium was a landmark moment the club shared on Monday as the personal touches to the club take hold. Mauricio Pochettino will wait with interest for the announcement of Premier League fixtures on June 14 as he will then discover where Tottenham will begin the 2018-19 campaign.It is hoped the stadium will be complete and ready for the start of August but they may request to play the first month of games away from home in a bid to tie up loose ends. Liverpool placed a similar request as they redeveloped their main stand and wanted to switch a fixture from home to away.
Nabil Fekir has provided fresh details on his Liverpool transfer saga and revealed how he has met with the Lyon chairman while in Russia. The Frenchman, who is currently representing his nation in the World Cup, looked set to complete a move to Merseyside ahead of the tournament's start date. He had a medical with the Anfield club and was about ready to put pen to paper before the £53million transfer suddenly broke down. Neither Liverpool nor Lyon have given a specific reason as to why the deal failed to materialise, amid claims the Reds sought a second opinion after Fekir's medical raised concerns over an old knee injury. ========================================================= References: -https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/nabil-fekir-provides-fresh-details-12740851
