Liverpool boss Jurgen klopp speaks on his ideal Sadio Mane replacement as they look to hijack Man United target

Sadio Mané still has a year left on his contract after what appears to be his final appearance for Liverpool.

Sadio Mane established himself as an Anfield legend during his tenure with the club, scoring an amazing solo goal against Arsenal as soon as he joined.

He was also a major figure throughout Jürgen Klopp’s tenure, but after won every title possible at the highest level of English football, few would blame the 30-year-old for looking for a fresh challenge. After all, he’s been in the Premier League for eight years.

But the Reds can’t simply move him on for sentimental reasons. While no player deserves the right to decide when his Liverpool career comes to an end more than Erling Haaland, Liverpool must proceed with prudence in the summer, when Haaland is expected to join Manchester City.

When Mané returned from the Africa Cup of Nations, Klopp appeared to have discovered a new tactic, with the Senegalese international deployed as the middle man between Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool’s front line, which had previously struggled, suddenly boasted a mix of talent that nearly secured one of the most remarkable title comebacks in Premier League history.

For that reason alone, Liverpool cannot afford to lose Mané without first securing a successor.

There’s no questioning the brilliance that Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota bring to the team, but depth is a key aspect in determining whether or not the Reds can continue to dominate on all fronts.

Darwin Nunez, a striker for Benfica, could be the man to replace Mané. Klopp is now without a target striker who can make a difference from the bench, with Divock Origi poised to go.

Last season, Origi’s presence provided Liverpool with a crucial change of style in difficult games, allowing the Reds to win against Norwich City, Wolves, and Everton.

Nunez, 22, would join the club at an age when his worth is only going to rise despite recent rumours claim they are aiming for at least £80 million to sell him.

After being able to reach a £37 million initial fee contract with Porto for Luis Daz, the Reds would need all of their negotiation skills.

Despite scoring 32 goals in 39 games last season, Nez’s game is bound to have faults that he must address.

In those games, he only had four assists, and some of his passes left a lot to be desired, especially considering how Liverpool uses its centre-forward.

However, as a pure striker, the Uruguay international has the ability to soar under Klopp.

Before coming to Merseyside, the German coach had a track record of developing strikers, having worked with the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But, even better, the Reds would swoop in for a Manchester United transfer, with Erik ten Hag eyeing Nunez as his first big signing.

Liverpool set to seal three deals before the January transfer window deadline tonight

Liverpool set to seal three deals before the January transfer window deadline tonight

The January transfer window closes at 11 pm tonight, and Liverpool could yet do a few deals before then.

Liverpool is likely to have a low-key January transfer deadline day today, but given how unpredictable the final few hours of the winter transfer season can be, numerous moves are still possible.

With the acquisition of attacker Cody Gakpo from PSV for an initial £37 million, the Reds have only made just one signing so far this month.

Despite needing midfielders, Jurgen Klopp’s team appears content to wait until the summer to make changes to their squad.

The top target is Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund will then become available as Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-contracts Chamberlain expire.

Another target is Matheus Nunes of the Wolves. Liverpool decided not to sign the Portugal international last summer, and they would have done so this month if it weren’t for FIFA regulations that prevent him from joining the Merseyside club until the following campaign.

This is because he has already appeared for Sporting Lisbon and Wolves this season.

One midfielder who could potentially be a late addition today though is Sheffield United’s, Sander Berge.

Liverpool’s interest in the Norwegian dates back to his days at Genk, who they played in the Champions League group stages in 2019-20. Genk’s sporting director back then confirmed the Premier League giants were following him “carefully”.

The 24-year-old did not play for Sheffield United against Wrexham in the FA Cup on Sunday and manager Paul Heckingbottom explained: “He’s not here because we have been asked not to use him. Our club is speaking to other clubs regarding him. It’s a club decision to protect that asset.”

The Blades must settle their debts and are subject to a transfer embargo. Berge might sell for less than the club-record £22 million they forked for in 2020. That makes it possible for a last-minute swoop.

However, Newcastle are also looking into a deal and appears to be the more likely contender now that Jonjo Shelvey has been permitted to go for Nottingham Forest.

Klopp, after all, said at the weekend: “No, no, nothing will happen in this transfer window. That’s it, all good.” And the German is unlikely to be bluffing. More likely is that Liverpool’s final 24 hours of the window will be concentrated on exits.

Nath Phillips

But there might not be as many of those as in past years. The Reds are not in a position to let many players leave, but backup defender Nat Phillips is on the verge of leaving.

Although a loan-to-buy arrangement is also possible, Phillips might be moving to Galatasaray for £10 million.

The solid defender, who only stayed in the summer owing to Virgil van Dijk’s injury, is much sought after by German clubs. In order to make Phillips’ departure possible, Rhys Williams has been called back from a loan stint at Blackpool.

Liverpool transfer – Fabrizio Romano confirms Liverpool talking to player they want to sign alongside Jude Bellingham this summer

Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Liverpool signing Matheus Nunes in the summer is a ‘serious possibility’.

The Merseysiders continue to be focused on Jude Bellingham above all else, though are expected to conduct further business in the next window if finances allow.

“I think it’s a possibility, for him to join Liverpool. I would not say a done deal but for sure they’re having conversations on the player’s side, on the club’s side.

So Liverpool want Matheus Nunes and Jude Bellingham,” the Italian journalist told the Born and Red channel (via Rousing the Kop). “Let’s see if they’re able to bring in both of them but this is the plan for the club.”

Whether finances allow, of course, is another question entirely, and the extent to which it will be dependent on qualification for the Champions League remains something of an unknown amid the uncertain landscape of the club’s ownership situation.

Amid Fabinho’s ongoing struggles, a more pertinent question is perhaps whether the two midfielders mentioned should be considered enough in the way of incomings.

Liverpool won’t want to cut off Stefan Bajcetic’s pathway in light of his stunning performances of late but equally our No.3 can’t be relied upon, on current form, to provide an alternative option.

Perhaps that means the pursuit of a more senior option is necessary, though that leaves us in a difficult position when it comes to deciding the fate of our Brazilian international if the quality of his performances don’t improve before the end of the campaign.

Report: Liverpool could land Chelsea star N’Golo Kante in shocking deal

Liverpool are exploring signing Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante to strengthen their midfield, according to reports.

Liverpool wants to aim to turn around the Reds’ fortunes by bringing N’Golo Kante to Anfield in what would be a spectacular cross-Premier League trade.

That’s according to one report that says that the Merseysiders are looking at the iconic Chelsea midfielder as an option. Kante has been injured all season, following an injury sustained early in the season against Tottenham Hotspur, and is yet to feature under Graham Potter.

But with Liverpool seeking midfield reinforcements – and potentially shelling out for a big rebuild – Kante could be an ingenious solution.

According to Catalan outlet El Nacional, via Football365, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has made the request to ownership Fenway Sports Group to bring the World Cup winner to Liverpool in the summer.

Kante’s contract expires at the end of the current campaign, and it’s unlikely that Chelsea would renew it. Bringing in Kante for nothing could be a wise option with Liverpool needing to rebuild this summer and a hefty bid for Jude Bellingham rumoured.

However, the 31-year-old has experienced injury problems in the previous two seasons, and since Klopp hasn’t been able to rely on the physical wellbeing of players like Curtis Jones, Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara, Arthur Melo, Jordan Henderson, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in recent seasons, adding another injury-prone midfielder might not be a good idea.

especially in light of the pay. Kante would not be cheap because he is most likely one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League right now and Kante is valued at €30m by Transfermarkt

After being substituted for goal-scoring Harvey Elliott at the hour mark, our No. 27 began his comeback from injury by finding himself in some precarious positions out wide.

It’s fantastic to see that the Uruguayan is capable of these typically high octave performances since his willingness to run and apply pressure to the defense nearly won the ball back high up the pitch.

Paul Robinson, a former goalkeeper for Tottenham, believes the Reds should sign Ryan Gravenberch, a Dutch international, on a late-season loan from Bayern Munich.

The retired England international told Football Insider:

“Gravenberch has not played much this year. He has been a bit-part player at best for Bayern Munich. He has so much potential. Let’s not forget he is still just 20. I think he is a good player from what I’ve seen of him.”

“Perhaps he needs a new manager. He could flourish under somebody like Jurgen Klopp. If Liverpool can get him on loan, why not? It is an area that we all know they need to look at. I would not be against that move.”

Also READ  Watch: FSG table insane bid for 3 world class players as they give conditions to join Liverpool.

Gravenberch is a talented central midfielder, who won multiple league titles with Ajax under the management of Erik ten Hag.

The 20-year-old made direct contributions to 9 goals in all competitions last season, including 7 (2 goals and 5 assists) in the league-championship campaign.

The Dutch Eredivisie giants sold him to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window for a fee of £21.9 million (25 million euros).

However, the youthful midfielder has primarily served as a bench warmer since going to Germany. The Netherlands player has only played 221 minutes in the competition and has yet to start a league game for the Bavarians.
