Jones returns ahead of Man United & Gravenberch ‘followed’ by Reds – Liverpool FC Roundup

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?

Jurgen Klopp has consistently said we don’t need to directly replace Gini Wijnaldum, so naturally we’re still linked with a whole load of centre mids.

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.

  • Erling Haaland will ask for £600k a week wages if he moves to the Premier League, or roughly the interest earned by Newcastle‘s ownership group every three and a half seconds
  • Donny van de Beek wants to leave Man United, presumably because he last played in about February, but he won’t head back to former club Ajax
  • Mikel Arteta was worried Emile Smith Rowe would leave Arsenal this summer, which is always a nice positive sign when the boss realises a player is out of the depth of his team
