No Koulibaly discount, Cavani would have been good option, Upamecano message sent in Liverpool news roundup….
Manchester United star Edinson Cavani would have been a good signing for Liverpool, claimed Steve Nicol.
Cavani shocked many in the world of football over the transfer window when he decided to leave PSG on a free deal in order to seek one more big challenge in the game, and in the end, it was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that convinced him to make the move to the Premier League.
The new Manchester United front-man is PSG’s record goal-scorer with 200 goals in 301 games, and many believe that he will struggle to score gaols with Manchester United this season and beyond.
He is not the same player that he once was and is coming towards the very end of his playing days in the game, but despite the fact he has struggled to make much of an impact at United, Nicol has opened up and suggested that he would have been a good option for Liverpool.
Liverpool may have one of the best attacks in world football, but they dont really have many options on the bench if things are not going right, and Nicol has claimed that Cavani would have been a good option for Jurgen Klopp to have.
The former Liverpool ace told ESPN: “Edinson Cavani is a good option coming off the bench for any team.
“I wouldn’t have had a problem if Liverpool had signed Cavani for coming off the bench with 20 minutes to go.”
Liverpool transfer target Dayot Upamecano is ready to play for Bayern Munich, claims Former RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick believes
Upamecano has become one of the most in-demand young defenders in the game right now and has been attracting interest from all the Premier League’s big clubs, with Chelsea and Liverpool leading the chase for the Frenchman.
However, it seems that Bayern will now fancy their chances of getting a deal done, after France international Upamecano was recently backed to become a world-class star by current Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann and his former boss Rangnick believes he is good enough for the European and German champions.
Bayern are likely to lose David Alaba and Jerome Boateng at the end of the season and will have to invest in their back line. Asked if he believes he would excel in Bavaria, Rangnick told Sport1: “Why not? Bayern know this player well, you can assume that. Physically, Bayern saw that in direct duels: no one will run away from him.
“He might still have one or two risky balls too many in a game, but he will certainly learn in the next few years.
“I got to know Upa and his family over many years. They not only make decisions that sound good to them in terms of his image, but they also make decisions based on the feeling of what is best for the player himself.”
Liverpool will get no discount on Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly in January, Jurgen Klopp has been told.
It is no secret that Jurgen Klopp made a transfer mistake over the summer to not spend the money and sign a new defender that would come in and add some much needed depth to that back-line.
The injuries to Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, who have been the preferred option at back for Klopp, is a massive concern for the club while Joel Matip cannot simply stay fit enough to make that spot his own.
That has led to alot of speculation in the media that that Klopp will need to spend in the transfer window in order to add a new defender to the back-line, and he has been linked with a move for Koulibaly over the last few weeks.
Koulibaly is one of the best central defenders in the game right now and the man that has been touted as the ideal partner for Van Dijk at the back, but he will be on the market for £63 million in the next window.
Italian publication Area Napoli claims that there would be no discount on offer, as President Aurelio De Laurentiis is said to be unwavering in his £63million valuation having rebuffed bids from Man City and Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
It will be interesting to see if Liverpool do make a move for Koulibaly because they had the opportunity to sign the powerhouse in the summer window, and they did not take it then.
Will Klopp want to spend £63 million on a player that is not proven in the Premier League?
