    Reds ‘in touch’ for Serie A centre-back & Ocampos wants Anfield move – Liverpool FC Roundup – Liverpool FC

    Liverpool have to get back to winning ways and a couple of back-to-back victories could change much of the negativity. Let’s hope the Reds are putting this week to good use.

     

    Ocampos keen on Reds switch

    A couple of days ago we brought you the rumours that Liverpool were looking at Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos, a powerful and tricky wide forward who scores for fun when on-form.

    There was even an inclusion in the rumour that we might consider adding Takumi Minamino to the deal as a part-exchange option.

    Today, the news out of Argentina is that Ocampos himself is very keen on the move – he “wants it to be done”, reports El Intrasigente.

    As an additional intrigue, there’s apparently pressure from his former club River Plate to see that the transfer gets done – as they’re entitled to 3.5% of a future deal, which could be worth a couple of million for them.

    One to watch…

     

    Three-way pull for Milenkovic

    Onto centre-backs, then. No doubt there will be another half-a-dozen linked with the Reds between now and the summer, but there’s a strong chance Nikola Milenkovic will be on the move.

    He has just over a year to go on his Fiorentina deal and, quite frankly, he’s a better performer than a team heading in the wrong direction. He’ll be off to a bigger club – with three reported as interested so far.

    Sky Sport (Germany edition) journalist Max Bielefeld reports that Borussia Dortmund have held talks with his agent and the club, but also “recently in touch” were Liverpool and Man United.

    He’s big, powerful, decent in the air and plays right side of the two (or indeed the three with La Viola).

     

    Top to bottom

    There will be no respite in the search for perfection, even if that seems a long way off right now. They all know how they got there in the first place, and will fight to do so again.

    • Jose says he’ll be remembered at Spurs for the good times, not the bad, after clocking up a fifth loss in six league games. Wonder which half of a match he’s talking about? (BBC)
    • Dan James says new United signing Amad is “unbelievable” but, to be fair, anyone who can change direction on the run probably looks incredible to James (Independent)
    • Arsenal headline today’s totally irrelevant transfer news with the suggestion they want to sell Reiss Nelson (FFT)

    Stupid “dive” of the day

    There’s a fine line between amazing ingenuity and unbelievable idiocy. This player was not remotely close to the line. He was just an incredible moron.
