The Ivory Coast international joined PSV two years ago after leaving French club Toulouse, and since then, he has made a significant impact in the Eredivisie.

He has currently played 98 games for the Dutch team, scoring eight goals and dishing out six assists.

James Milner has been forced to start more games than Reds manager Jurgen Klopp would have preferred due to the team’s injury issues.

Even though he may be dependable, the 36-year-old lacks the midfielder’s creative flair and has lost several yards of speed. Thiago Alcantara made his injury comeback in Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League opener against Napoli.

However, Liverpool’s Champions League group stage roster has been changed to exclude Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita.

The former Arsenal midfielder and the international for Guinea are both now out with injury.

Jordan Henderson, the team’s captain, is also out after hurting his hamstring in a 2-1 victory over Newcastle United on August 31.

The Reds’ season has gotten off to a dismal start due to the dearth of talent on the bench.

They have only accumulated nine points from their first six league games, placing them eighth in the standings.

On September 7, Napoli defeated the Merseysiders 4-1 in group stage of the UEFA Champions League.

Liverpool began proceedings in the second-half with far more aggression and intent and actually came close to finding an effort via unlikely scorer Ibrahima Konate.

The Frenchman raced into the opposing half in a manner some might suggest was Joel Matip-esque before attempting to catch Kepa Arrizabalaga off his line with a speculative effort.

The shot went just wide of the post in what was a clear warning sign for Graham Potter’s men.

The Liverpool confirms midfield transfer as Jürgen Klopp explains plan and Diogo Jota injury update

Liverpool have confirmed a January transfer move while Jürgen Klopp has been speaking about his summer plan and offered a Diogo Jota injury update.

Jürgen Klopp has told his team that the Reds would be making significant changes amid a transfer overhaul, but that won’t happen until the summer when several of his players’ contracts expire.

“At Borussia Dortmund, it was clear when I left (in 2015), I said something has to change,” Klopp said in the second part of his press conference. “It is a different situation (here). Either the manager’s position changes or a lot of other things change.

“So, as far as I am concerned, what I hear — unless someone tells me (different) — I will not go. So that means maybe there is a point where we have to change other stuff.

“We will see but that is for the future, like summer or whatever. Not now. I have space and time to think about it.

“We have to play better football now. We cannot play and say: ‘OK, these are the problems but next season we don’t have them anymore’. That is a really long time. I cannot promise we will fly tomorrow but what I want to promise is that we really fight and everyone can see it.”

But if they manage to finish in the top four this season, it will be much easier to make such changes. Without Champions League football for a season, it will be considerably more difficult to sign Jude Bellingham and other major targets.

Jürgen Klopp has offered an update on Diogo Jota’s fitness as he continues his recovery from the long-term injury that has already forced him to miss the World Cup.

“I don’t know exactly how long but he looks really good,” Klopp said in the second part of his press conference. “He’s out there on the pitch doing a lot of stuff already. Another few weeks?”

When asked if Jota would be available for the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal matchup against Real Madrid next month, Klopp said: “From my point of view, yes but I don’t know.”

Colombian winger Luis Díaz is also on the recovery trail. He posted an update from the AXA Training Centre on social media yesterday.

At the AMEX Stadium on Saturday night, two goals in the second half from Solly March and another from substitute Danny Welbeck condemned Liverpool to a 3-0 Premier League loss.

In response, Klopp expressed his deep concern by evaluating the reverse without comparison over the course of his 22 years as manager.

“It’s my job to make the right line-up and set up the right tactics,” said the Reds boss. “I had really nice moments doing that but, I’m not sure if it’s because it’s only a few minutes since the game, but I can’t remember a worse game.

Klopp has already conceded the Gakpo deal limits what the club can do in the remainder of the window – but there is still plenty of time for them to spring a surprise.

Gvardiol decides future

Josko Gvardiol, a defender for RB Leipzig, has expressed his love for Liverpool amid recent transfer rumors, but he has also said he will stay with his current team until at least 2024, quelling any rumors that he might be moving to Merseyside.

At the World Cup in Qatar, the Croatian center back dazzled, drawing admiring glances from all across Europe, including Chelsea. Gvardiol’s admission that it would be a “dream” to wear Liverpool’s crimson uniform gave Liverpool a much-appreciated advantage.

The Dutch attacker displayed the back of his shirt to reveal: “Gakpo 18,” which was a wonderful way for the club to announce his selection as he passed past our awards that are on display in the AXA Training Centre.

The 23-year-old joins Takumi Minamino, Alberto Moreno, Dirk Kuyt, Antonio Nunez, John Arne Riise, Erik Meijer, Jean-Michel Ferri, Michael Owen, Phil Charnock, and Ronny Rosenthal as the 11th player to wear the number since the Premier League’s inception.

The former PSV player wore the same jersey number for the Under-21 team at his old team and twice for his country; now, at Anfield, the legacy of his relationship with the number will continue to flourish.
