Thankfully, that defence was spared much blushes by Liverpool’s attacking abilities with …

SO LONG COUTINHO, ITS WHAT YOU WANTED. THANKS FOR THE £142 MILLION – Football Article

Southampton are a selling club, mostly to Liverpool with Virgil Van Dijk the latest example.

Why Liverpool should make a wide forward the summer priority regardless of Timo Werner saga – Football Article

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Timo Werner, but the Reds’ summer transfer plans should include a move for another type of forward too. There’s no question that Jurgen Klopp‘s team has become a far more rounded one this year, showing strength and depth in defence as well as attack.
