Reds 1 of 3 with ‘chance’ of Haaland & injuries to international duo – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are back to hoping no players pick up considerable injuries while on international duty over the coming days – though two are struggling even before playing.


Haaland rumours persist for summer

Going to be a long old year with this transfer rumour, but if we end up with Erling Haaland leading the line in 2022 it’ll be worth it.

That said, European media today speculate that Liverpool are one of three clubs who have a chance of signing him, along with Real Madrid and PSG.

It’s the French club who apparently have the greatest chance – 50%, with a one-in-four shot for both the Reds and Los Blancos. Nothing particularly specific as to why those precise fractions are offered up, mind.

He’d be immense. He’d be cheap in terms of value, even at a mammoth €75m. And he’ll be hugely, hugely in-demand. Newcastle no doubt a sudden challenger!

  • Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard are candidates to replace Steve Bruce. Maybe appoint them both? But get a decent defensive mid assistant behind them this time
  • Raheem Sterling is wanted by Barcelona and Man City want Ousmane Dembele in exchange. Seems a fair trade, a great player being ignored for a perma-injured one to leave as sub?
  • Sardar Azmoun hasn’t been linked to a Premier League side for at least five months, so ARSENAL are back in the frame to sign him this time, because why not?
