Liverpool are preparing for a huge game against Man United this weekend so most of the news focus is there – but there’s always a rumour or two as well!
Dutch midfielder to replace a Dutch midfielder?
That said, we wouldn’t be complaining if we signed this one: Ajax’s Ryan Gravenberch.
The talented youngster is linked with the Reds by Dutch outfit Soccerlens, who say he’s “closely followed” by the Reds as well as Juventus.
Ajax want to renew his deal, which expires in 18 months, and we may make a move beforehand to keep that price down.

- Curtis Jones is back full to training and fit for the Reds as an extra midfield addition for this weekend – but there’s still no sign of Thiago
- Jurgen Klopp doesn’t have any time for your penalty conspiracy theories and says he can’t influence referees as the Solskjaer complaints rumble on
- Man United can cause any teams problems despite also looking utterly crap, so the boss is keen to ensure Liverpool don’t underestimate the challenge of the weekend
