    Reds wanted to sign top young attacker & bizarre Neuhaus claim – Liverpool FC Roundup – Liverpool FC

    Liverpool’s transfer plans get a real looking-at in today’s media, both for the summer ahead…and the summer just past, which didn’t play out as might have been expected.

     

    Top talent was top priority

    Careful dealing in the transfer market has been one of the key factors in getting Liverpool to the top of world football – and it was designed to help us stay there, too.

    The Reds, while strengthening Jurgen Klopp‘s squad and winning trophies, were also hoarding cash to be ready to splash out on “a generational talent or a real difference-maker”, with the likes of Jadon Sancho a prime example.

    Sadly, the Covid pandemic has wiped out most of those plans, with cash reserves diminished and the club likely to have to sell a top player to buy in another one.

    Add in the likes of Real and Barca not being cash-rich themselves these days and the biggest of bids are unlikely.

     

    A rumour which makes very little sense

    Let’s break this rumour down and see how far we go.

    The Reds are keen on ‘Gladbach’s midfielder Florian Neuhaus – OK, fine. We’re on board here.

    We see him as a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum, who is soon to be out of contract. All good – some style differences, sure, but Gini wasn’t exactly like he is now when he signed, either.

    He has a release clause – we like that, €40m is hefty, but reasonably attainable if the club are convinced of his stardom.

    And, Bild say, his club are keen to keep him. We can understand that, too.

    But then: to sign him, Liverpool will have to make an “immoral offer” which is well above his release clause to tempt the club into letting him go.

    Erm, what?! Are we missing the point of a release clause somewhere, or are BMG planning to go all ’40+1′ on us?!

    At the centre of everything these days, the Liverpool supporters! Except the stadium, of course – although even that will (hopefully) be changing soon…

    • Everton are among the sides hoping to convince Ivan Toney to do an Ollie Watkins and leave Brentford to bang in a load of Prem goals instead
    • Daniel Levy will give the next Spurs manager the chance to say “err, no ta” to bringing Gareth Bale back next season – assuming they can actually attract a boss who doesn’t go elsewhere in the end
    • And Leeds just won’t give up on the dream of having a former LFC U23 winger in their line-up and will make another bid for Ryan Kent, now at Rangers, in the summer

     

    Badly timed ‘report’ of the day

    Early-ish on Tuesday, Sky Italia claimed Roma’s first choice for a new manager this summer would be Maurizio Sarri.

    About four or five hours later, Roma lol’d at the report and announced Jose Mourinho was confirmed as the incoming boss instead.
