Roma Midfielder on Liverpool Radar

Jürgen Klopp could be looking at Leandro Paredes to run his midfield. Hi, kids! Do you like sliding tackles, whipped crosses and 50-yard diagonals? Well, step right up, because Leandro Paredes is basically those three things wrapped in a boyishly handsome Argentinian bow, and he's available at a reasonable price. Jürgen Klopp's yearlong hunt for a tempo-setting central midfielder has been covered exhaustively by rumour mongering tabloids and well-connected journalists alike, and the speculation doesn't look like it's going to abate anytime soon. Roma's Paredes is the last in a long line...
Radja Nainggolan would only move to the Premier League for a celestial body

Radja Nainggolan would only move to the Premier League for a celestial body

Radja Nainggolan to Chelsea is yet another one of those transfer rumors that seems to never die, and while that’s unsurprising given Antonio Conte’s confirmed interest in the midfielder, Nainggolan’s been basically made the King of the Eternal City and there’s almost no reason for him to ever leave. Which is basically also how he answers when asked about a potential move to Chelsea by Sky Sports recently. “Give me the sun I will come. I'm happy. Why give that away to begin again.” Just the Sun then? Bargain, really; we get to keep both the Moon and the stars as future...

The one name Newcastle should push the boat out for in the summer

The one name Newcastle should push the boat out for in the summer

Middlesbrough came close to tying up a loan deal for the player in January, only for the deal to fall at the last hurdle.  If two years ago anyone had mentioned Jesé Rodriguez in the same sentence as Newcastle, eyebrows would have raised with bemusement. The young Spaniard was all not long back from a very serious knee injury that kept him out for 9 whole months. Things were very much looking up. Real Madrid fans seen him as one of their own and clung to the hopes of him breaking out into one of Europe's top stars. On this day two years ago, Jesé was named on the bench for the biggest...

Chelsea-linked Kalidou Koulibaly’s future at Napoli now assured, two weeks after it wasn’t

Chelsea-linked Kalidou Koulibaly’s future at Napoli now assured, two weeks after it wasn’t

It has only been 12 days since Kalidou Koulibaly's agent Bruno Satin cast doubts on the future of his client at Napoli. Bad results for the team in the Champions League and the Serie A, coupled with an apparent bad relationship with egotistical club chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis made Koulibaly's representative claim loud and clear that it would be hard for his client to stay at the club next season. However, in a complete turnaround, Satin practically retracted everything he said earlier this month in an interview on Radio CRC. "We renewed with Napoli until 2021, so Kalidou will stay at...

Playing at Anfield Would be “Something Special” for Reds Target Timo Werner

Young German star Timo Werner may be happy at Leipzig, but it doesn’t sound like he’d turn Liverpool down. If it seems like just a day ago that Timo Werner was saying he wanted to stay at RB Leipzig, that’s because it was. As always, though, there’s really only so much a player can say when asked if he’s looking to leave his current club. And saying he wanted to stay hasn’t stopped more questions being asked. Questions that Werner has given answers to that will only spark another round of rumours linking him with a move to Liverpool to work under Jürgen Klopp. Questions about...

Everton linked with American striker

The Toffees’ love affair with the USA set to continue Bobby Wood might not be playing for the USMNT during this international break but it appears he has no shortage of suitors, especially from the Premier League. Everton, Leicester City and Liverpool have all been reportedly watching the Hamburger SV forward who suffered a back injury this last weekend. The forward has caught the eye this season, scoring nine goals in 23 appearances for the Bundesliga side. He’s also become a key cog of the US national team in the last couple of years, picking up eight goals in 29 national caps....

Wenger pauses Özil and Alexis contract talks

The earliest either players’ contract statuses will be resolved will be this summer Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez’s contract extensions will not happen until summer at the earliest, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said earlier today. That would leave both players with only 12 months remaining on their contracts, which would force Arsenal’s hand at selling knowing they simply cannot start the 2017-18 season with either of them on the roster without an extension signed. After all, the very last thing Arsenal would allow is for Özil and Alexis to talk freely with any club they desire...

2016-17 Arsenal Roster Evaluation: Center Back

Is Arsenal set at the back heading into the 2017 offseason and summer transfer window? What became a position of progressing worry has further blossomed into a rosebush of danger, with big nasty pointy thorns that drip acid and harbour flesh-eating catepillars that would make even the hardiest Pokemon Go users cringe. That was master wordcrafter Phil AlsoNamed on the center back position heading into the season prior to the Shkodran Mustafi signing but following the knee injury to Per Mertesacker. Now seven months into the 2016/17 season, how are things looking at the back? First Team Per...

Divock Origi Talks “Frustrating” Second Season at Liverpool

Divock Origi Talks “Frustrating” Second Season at Liverpool

His numbers are similar to a year ago, but the expectations—including Origi’s for himself—were for a step forward. On paper, the numbers don’t look bad. On paper, Divock Origi has eight goals and four assists in 34 appearances across all competitions this season for Liverpool, a healthy return for a 21-year-old striker still learning his trade. That hasn’t stopped a creeping sense of disappointment. Not because people don’t believe in Origi’s talent, but because it’s a similar return to last season, and what was in his first year a sign of promise for many is, in his...

Ashley Cole, still keeping it classy

Ashley Cole, still keeping it classy

Silence is golden. There are ways to do things, and there are ways not to do things. For instance: you don’t show up at someone’s house uninvited, kick off your shoes, plop down on the couch, and demand that someone brings you a beer. You don’t go to someone’s house for dinner, take two bites of your food, then throw it on the floor and demand that the hosts order a pizza because you don’t like what you were given. And, when you leave somewhere, you should really leave with some grace and dignity, or at the very least, you should leave quietly. This is a lesson that, even a decade...

Toby Alderweireld wants to earn as much as Harry Kane, and he should

Few Spurs players have earned the right to be a top wage earner as much as Toby. Toby Alderweireld is perhaps now in the minority as a Tottenham Hotspur player who has not yet received a contract extension in the past season and a half. But there are few Spurs players who deserve it more. Today, the London Evening Standard is reporting that Alderweireld is holding contract talks with Tottenham, but is holding out with hopes that he will join Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris at the top of Spurs’ wage scale. Toby is currently on a deal that pays him £50,000/wk, which was highish for a Tottenham...

Özil hasn’t started since the first leg of Bayern tie and is set to leave this summer, but struggling to find destination According to The Telegraph, Turkish club Fenerbahçe have emerged as a possible destination for Arsenal’s Mesut Özil should he leave the club this summer. The article itself has a host of damning details about Arsenal, Özil, and the situation as a whole. Arsene Wenger seems resigned to losing Özil, a player he personally convinced to join from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013.

Despite Poor Run, Newcastle Still in Control

Winless in three consecutive matches, the Magpies still lead the Championship Let’s face it, the last fortnight has been extremely disappointing. With just two points in their last three games, Newcastle seems hard pressed to string together a complete match. Against Reading, the defense had a strong showing, limiting the Royals to a single shot on goal. However, the offense was severely lacking, giving up the majority of the possession and failing to score despite taking 13 shots, including five on goal. The Fulham match was a full scale breakdown. Keeper Karl Darlow allowed three...

Rumour Mongering: Reds Offer Triple Wages for Bayern Munich and Real Madrid Target

There aren’t many better young left backs than Theo Hernandez, and reports have Liverpool going hard for him. Another summer nears, and as always, Liverpool appear more than a little uncertain when it comes to the left back position. James Milner has done a solid job for the team this season despite lacking top end speed, but at times it shows that he isn’t a natural at the position, and behind him Alberto Moreno remains a question mark. And today, there are rumours in Spain courtesy of La Cadena SER that claim Liverpool are frontrunners for promising 19-year-old French born, Spanish...

Man of the Match: Oxford United 2-4 Bolton Wanderers - Filipe Morais

The Portuguese pocket rocket has done it again It feels like a lifetime ago since Bolton Wanderers had a player we could all get excited about. Enter Filipe Morais, the 31-year-old Portuguese winger, signed on a free transfer in early 2017. What a revelation this lad has been; he offers something we haven’t seen for as long as I can remember - his winding runs and lethal crosses proving far too much for opposition defences to handle. He was fantastic against Oxford, racking up another goal and assist without much of a fuss. His goal wasn’t an easy finish - under increasing pressure from...
