Liverpool Transfers

The Latest Liverpool FC Transfer News, Stories and Updates have been added below for 2016 – 2017

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Ever since the appointment of Brendan Rodgers as the new manager at Liverpool following the sacking of Kenny Dalglish at the end of the season there have been many widespread rumours regarding new arrivals at the club. Rodgers has clearly stated he is looking to bolster his options in the closed season and there has been much speculation about the players he may bring in and the players that may find themselves on the way out of Anfield.

One of the main stories regarding Liverpool this summer is the future of misfiring striker Andy Carroll who cost the Merseyside club thirty five million pounds at the start of 2011. The striker is thought to be the target of many premier league sides with former club Newcastle said to be leading the chase for the players signature. Rodgers has neither stated that Carroll will leave or stay this summer amid growing speculation that the player does not feature in the managers plans as he attempts to change the style that Liverpool have become so accustomed to playing in recent years.

Belgian international Kevin Mirallas is thought to be on the top of Rodgers list this summer as the Olympiakos player has been in sensational form for the Turkish side ever since arriving from St Etienne two seasons ago. The player has managed to put away thirty four goals in forty nine starts for his current side which is a phenomenal record but Liverpool may need to fend of interest from some of Europe’s top clubs if they are to sign the striker who has a six million pound get out clause within his current contract.

Liverpool are also said to be firm in the frame to sign want away Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby as the twenty one year old tops the list of several of the top sides in Europe. Schalke though have been very quiet on this matter as they are said to not be interested in the slightest of losing one of their most influential players with Arsenal, Everton and Manchester United also said to be in for the player.

The signing of former Roma striker Fabio Borini has been seen as a major coup for Rodgers this summer as he has worked with and been a huge admirer of the player for some time. The twenty one year old has been in great form for his previous club and is seen as a great prospect for the Merseysiders. The Italian can also play as an attacking midfielder which will be another great boost for the squad as the long term future of Steven Gerrard is not as clear as it once was due to his ill fated injury prospects as he reaches the twilight of his career.

By: Colin1
In reply to <a href="https://www.footballfancast.com/opinion-2/football-blogs/liverpool#comment-40690">Jay Wright</a>. Hodgson hasn't really got a lot to choose from. The whole team needs changing. Unfortunately you need funds for that.

By: Stephen cogley
Not only is it the managers fault I also think the players should look at there displays. There trying to blame it down to ownership under hicks and co but look at man utd there in debt don't like there owners but where are they in the league so there just looking for any excuse. What excuse have they got for getting beat on sun by everton was the grass to long lads or was it cos you didn't care. The manager needs to go after all he picks the team and he is not picking the correct system we need 4 4 2 with Torres and kuyt as the 2. When kuyt first came to us he played up front as a forward and scored loads put him back where he should be.

Think the manager should be sacked NOW before it gets worse did you see him laughing at the end of the derby defeat when he was shaking hands. No manager should be that happy his team got beat. Give the job to king kenny

Roy to blame not Benitez as others have stated. the best he has done at LFC is to sell good players and bring in British rejects and outcast from other PL teams. Let any body out their state the quality that make the two British players Roy bought that suits LFC (KOncasty and cole no i mean cooled).Can one compare koncesky to insua or compare Cole to Reira. P'se get rid of Roy before its too late. This one season performer is a very big liability to the team with his tactics of no-wing play but overlap by defenders.

    Related: Southampton v Manchester City: Premier League – live!

    That’s Liverpool’s 24th consecutive home victory in the Premier League. Is that even legal?

    Peep peep! Liverpool move to 89 points with victory over Aston Villa. They were sluggish for an hour but upped their game after a triple substitution and eventually broke down a diligent Villa defence. Sadio Mane belted the first of the bar, and the young substitute Curtis Jones sealed victory with a couple of minutes remaining.

    90+3 min Neco Williams replaces Andy Robertson for the champions.

    90+1 min Alisson makes an outstanding save, showing superb reflexes to dive low to his left and push Grealish’s shot round the post. He is formidably good.

    90 min Five minutes of added time.

    It was a good team goal. Robertson floated a cross beyond the far post, Salah cushioned a header back towards Jones, and he adjusted his feet smartly to hit a shot that deflected off Mings and into the net.

    Curtis Jones wraps up victory for Liverpool!

    88 min Villa are running out of time. Defeats are not ideal when you’re trying to avoid relegation but they will surely take a fair bit of confidence from this performance. Their next two games - at home to Manchester United and Crystal Palace - are huge. They have to win at least one of those, especially with Watford likely to beat Norwich in the week.

    87 min “Completely agree,” says Ronan Fitzgerald. “He’s incredible on the ball. Maybe just his style is so effortless and nobody gets near him so people don’t notice. Brilliant finisher too. And incredibly consistent.”

    Superb in the really big games, too.

    86 min Jones blasts over the bar from long range.

    85 min Villa bring on Indiana Vassilev for Trezeguet.

    85 min “Alright Rob, tin hat time,” says Digvijay Yadav. “Stam or Van Dijk?”

    That’s a delightful bit of mischief. They are so similar: intimidating strength and speed, oodles of self-confidence and quite brilliant one on one. Probably van Dijk by a nose, simply because of his impact on the rest of the defence. Stam had less midfield protection, van Dijk got more goals. Can you imagine them together.

    84 min Curtis Jones replaces Naby Keita for Liverpool.

    79 min Tyrone Mings is struggling after landing awkwardly. He limps to the sidelines for more treatment and then comes back on. Villa really don’t want to lose him for the rest of the season.

    77 min “Mane!!” says Matt Dony. “Never in doubt, Rob. It’s what champions do. (As well as being tonked 4-0 by your closest rivals, obviously.)”

    There’s a rich tradition of new champions behing hammered in meaningless games. But I doubt any team will do it with as much style as Bayern Munich in 1974: “We arrived fairly drunk and lost 5-0.

    76 min Reina makes a fine save, flying to his left to beat away Firmino’s curling shot. It came after a quick one-two with Salah on the edge of the box. Liverpool are playing some terrific stuff now.

    76 min Sadio Mane is a glorious footballer. He’s the best attacking player in the best team in the world, yet it still feels like he’s underrated.

    74 min A double change for Villa: Ally Samatta and Jota replace El Ghazi and Davis.

    73 min Salah appeals unsuccessfully for a penalty after being touched on the shoulder by Hause.

    Alexander-Arnold plays an excellent pass into Keita on the edge of the box. He slides an imaginative angled pass across the area to Mane, who hammers it in off the bar from 10 yards. That goal has been coming ever since Jurgen Klopp made those substitutions on the hour.

    68 min Time for the drinks break. A draw wouldn’t lift Villa out of the relegation places, but it would be a helluva result. The last time Liverpool failed to win at home in the league was January 2019.

    65 min Another corner to Liverpool, which Reina punches clear. A storm is coming, Frank says.

    64 min Villa break four on three, with Grealish on the ball. He moves smoothly past Henderson and hammers a shot from 20 yards that hits van Dijk.

    62 min It might be a trick of the mind but it already feels, only a couple of minutes after those substitutions, like the real Liverpool are back. The pace has definitely increased.

    61 min “Liverpool have yet to score a goal as champions,” says Justin Kavanagh. “Clearly they are not up to the pressure on this rarefied perch. KLOPP OUT!”

    That is patently ridiculous: nobody in their right mind would claim Liverpool are back on their perch after one league title.

    60 min Jurgen Klopp has seen enough. He makes three changes, bringing on Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino for Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho and Origi.

    59 min Origi plays in the underlapping Robertson, whose superb low cross is put behind by Taylor.

    58 min van Dijk plays a dreadful pass, straight to Douglas Luiz, but redeems his error with a good tackle on El Ghazi in the area.

    56 min Oxlade-Chamberlain’s dangerous cross is well claimed by Reina.

    55 min “Happy Sunday Rob,” says Peter Oh. “A decade ago I used to hope for and celebrate Pepe Reina clean sheets. But today I’d like to see him on his back a few times as the ball settles into his net. Heck, get a beach ball on the pitch if that’s what it takes. It is summer after all.”

    That’s a great idea. They should exorcise all the ghosts of 1990-2020 - the slip, the PlayStation years, the beach ball, the Istvan Kozma - in one celebratory afternoon.

    53 min The resulting corner is headed back across goal by Mings and bounces up kindly for Origi to clear. That could have gone anywhere.

    52 min: Chance for Villa! Grealish leads a four-on-two break, waits for the right moment and plays in El Ghazi to his right. He slashes a low shot to the near post that is palmed behind by the diving Alisson.

    51 min Grealish’s fierce shot is beaten away by Alisson, though he had been flagged offside.

    50 min Liverpool look a bit busier than they did in the first half. Alexander-Arnold sprays a majestic pass to Origi on the left, but he runs into traffic and eventually Keita wafts a cross out of play. Origi and Mane have swapped positions.

    48 min A terrific, trademark cross from Alexander-Arnold is missed by Salah and bounces across the face of goal.

    47 min As a former Premier League champion I can assure you it is very difficult to retain the same intensity once you have won the title. And if you don’t believe me, look at this example of Liverpool in 1982-83. I’m not saying they eschewed sobriety for a month, I’m not saying that at all.

    46 min Peep peep! Villa begin the second half, and lump the ball straight out of play.

    Some half-time reading

    Related: Paul Parker: 'I'd bring the lager. Rocky would bring brandy and Babycham'

    After watching such a listless first-half performance, on the back of a heavy defeat at Manchester City, it is surely time to ask the most difficult of questions: has Jurgen Klopp taken Liverpool as far as he can?

    Peep peep! The good news for Villa is that they are deservedly level at Anfield. The bad news is that there is approximately 0.02 per cent chance of Liverpool playing as poorly in the second half.

    45+2 min Keita did brush Douglas Luiz’s heel, but I don’t think it was strong enough to knock him over. It was a delayed fall as well. But Douglas Luiz was convinced it was a penalty.

    45+1 min Three added minutes. Villa appeal for a penalty when Douglas Luiz goes over under a challenge from Keita, I think. VAR decides there was nothing in it.

    45 min It’s been a dreadful half, in terms of entertainment, but that suits Villa just fine.

    44 min Grealish will continue, at least until half-time.

    41 min Grealish is struggling again with his right ankle.

    40 min Another good low cross, this time from Trezeguet, is claimed by Alisson.

    39 min Grealish teases Alexander-Arnold and puts in a terrific cross that is headed behind by Robertson at the far post.

    37 min Salah has Liverpool’s first shot, a volley from a narrow angle that Reina saves comfortably to his left.

    36 min McGinn is booked for flattening Oxlade-Chamberlain.

    36 min “Sure looks like Reds are super motivated to go for points record,” says George Meikle. “Or maybe not at all.”

    I think they are, and I’m certain Klopp is. But the subconscious mind is a funny old game.

    35 min A good break down the right from Trezeguet, whose cross is just too deep for El Ghazi.

    33 min Douglas Luiz cracks a bouncing ball straight at Alisson from the edge of the area. Villa, almost unbelievably, will be starting to fancy their chances today.

    30 min The corner did hit Konsa on the hand after he missed a stooping header, but I wouldn’t say his arm was in an unnatural position.

    28 min Salah wins a corner for Liverpool. There’s an appeal for handball when Alexander-Arnold’s outswinger drops onto the body of a Villa defender. We haven’t seen a replay and play has continued.

    27 min Dean Smith will be thrilled with how the match has gone so far. Despite all Liverpool’s posession, Pepe Reina hasn’t had a save to make.

    23 min The drinks break presents Jurgen Klopp with the opportunity to tell his team what they’re doing wrong.

    21 min Grealish’s free-kick is headed over by Konsa near the penalty spot. It was a half chance at best.

    20 min Robertson is booked for a foul on Douglas Luiz. Liverpool are well off the pace - or, at least, well off their pace.

    16 min It looks like Grealish is okay. It’s not a great match at the moment, with Liverpool not at their sharpest.

    13 min Grealish is going to try to run it off.

    12 min Grealish is being treated for a problem with his right ankle. This is a worry for Villa, though he doesn’t look in too much pain.

    10 min Liverpool keep the ball for 90 seconds or so before Oxlade-Chamberlain overhits a pass to Alexander-Arnold.

    7 min It’s been a fairly low-key start, with Villa seeing plenty of the ball.

    4 min Salah goes down in the area after a slightly clumsy challenge from Douglas Luiz. Paul Tierney waves play on and there’s no suggestion that VAR is going to get involved.

    2 min Villa win an early corner down the left. Douglas Luiz works a short one with McGinn and dumps a cross into the middle that is cleared by Oxlade-Chamberlain.

    1 min Peep peep! Liverpool kick off from right to left.

    Villa’s players have formed a guard of honour for the Liverpool players. No sign of Bernardo Silva though.

    “The end-of-season medals were interesting in the pre-internet era,” says Phil Podolsky. “You suddenly saw some guys you had no idea were part of the team. Just as you had to wait for the first games of the season to learn about all the new players signed during the summer. Good times.”

    You mean there was a world before the International Champions Cup?

    Liverpool’s 2-1 win at Villa Park in November, when they were a goal down with four minutes remaining, was one of the most important of the season. Had they lost that day they would have been only three points clear of the champions Manchester City. Eight days later, after routing City at Anfield, they were nine clear.

    Godspeed, Villa department Liverpool have won their last 23 Premier League games at Anfield, an English top-flighr record. And in the last two league seasons, their record at home is P35 W33 D2 L0 F99 A22.

    Hello. We’re all friends here, so let us speak frankly. This is not the triumphant homecoming that Liverpool envisaged as they rampaged towards their first title in 30 years. But the first game at Anfield since Liverpool were confirmed as champions is still an opportune moment to celebrate an immortal group of players who have climbed Everest in record time. The pubs are open, Britain is Great again; what else are we going to do?

    Liverpool would have been of a mind to put on a show even before their 4-0 defeat at Manchester City on Thursday. Now they will want to make Villa - and City - pay for that mild embarrassment. If Liverpool win five of their last six games, they will break City’s records for the most points (100) and wins (32) in an English top-flight season. One thing’s for sure: I wouldn’t fancy being an Aston Villa defender for the next few hours.

  • Sun, 05 Jul 2020 17:44:46 +0000: Sadio Mané gets Liverpool back on track against wasteful Aston Villa - Liverpool | The Guardian

    On the surface the scoreline reflects what might be expected when newly crowned Premier League champions meet relegation-threatened visitors who cannot keep a clean sheet away from home. But this was a glaring opportunity missed for Aston Villa. Liverpool were in procession mode yet they still made it 17 wins from 17 Premier League home games this season thanks to Sadio Mané and Curtis Jones.

    Mane’s breakthrough and Jones’s first Premier League goal, arriving a day after he signed a new five-year contract with his boyhood club, made it 300 goals in 127 games at Anfield under Jürgen Klopp. His team have dropped an astonishing four points from the last 111 available on home soil and are unbeaten in 57 league games at Anfield.

    Critics are already out in force after Liverpool lost to City but the German is well practised in ignoring knee-jerk judgments

    Liverpool have lost three games in the past two Premier League seasons, but as the most recent defeat was by four goals it has already been suggested that the new champions have been enjoying their title success a little too much.

    Jürgen Klopp has heard it all before. Not on Merseyside, where he has just delivered the first title since 1990, but in his native Germany, where he followed up his unexpected Bundesliga title with Borussia Dortmund in 2011 with an even more unlikely retention a year later. “We didn’t do anything different the second season, all we did was continue to train hard and try to keep improving,” the Liverpool manager said.

  • Fri, 03 Jul 2020 21:30:55 +0000: Jürgen Klopp promises title medals to entire Liverpool first-team squad - Liverpool | The Guardian
    • Premier League rules set five appearances as trigger
    • ‘These guys will get a medal, even if I produce one myself’

    Jürgen Klopp believes every member of his first-team squad should be presented with a Premier League winner’s medal, regardless of the appearances they have clocked up, and has promised to manufacture more or give away his if necessary.

    “If you play one game you should have a medal, if you play no games you should have a medal,” said Liverpool’s manager as he questioned the rule which sets five appearances as the trigger. “I don’t know who thought of five games, who came up with that idea, but I don’t think it’s a good rule because people don’t understand how important the squad is to win a championship. You train five million times a year and if you don’t train at the highest level you have no chance to win a championship.”

    Liverpool’s captain talks pressing, politics, what makes Jürgen Klopp angry and the mentality that breeds success

    “Through tough times, you can forget how much you love the game,” Jordan Henderson says. “You can take it for granted a little bit. When you’re a small kid, you don’t really think about trophies and winning things. You’re just thinking about playing football. But as you get older, your dreams get bigger. When you get to 16, 17, 18, it comes down to winning at all costs. Doing anything you can.”

    We’re talking about trophies, and fulfilment, and happiness. When does pure enjoyment, the thrill of the game, give way to something larger? Why do footballers fixate so much on silverware, measure their lives in medals? At what point does it stop being about the taking part, and become about the winning?
