Liverpool, international break…that must mean bad news and wild rumours! Not really, of course, but there do tend to be a few of each at these times.
One transfer we’re considering…and one we won’t have to
You may have seen Divock Origi linked to Barcelona – but here’s precisely why you don’t need to pay a whole lot of attention to the stories.
It’s very, very unlikely to be a January transfer being pursued – but here’s one that feasibly could be.
Liverpool reportedly scouted Olympiacos’ young attacking midfielder Aguibou Camara recently, in a match against Fenerbahce, and were so impressed they’ve “started asking around” about his availability.
The 20-year-old plays both as a No10 and from the flank and is already a Guinea senior international – so there might be a character reference coming from Naby Keita if the interest is legit.
Senior stars talk
- Sadio Mane is among four players who might be missing for Liverpool’s trip to Atletico Madrid due to quarantine rules after the international break
- Harvey Elliott has posted an injury update as he starts his rehab – but fans are warned to remain patient over a long-term absence
- Nat Phillips has been praised after asking to play for the U21s against Bolton, as he seeks to get his first senior action of the season
Latest Liverpool FC news
- Former Reds forward Taiwo Awoniyi has rattled in eight goals this season already after leaving in the summer – and now has an international call-up too
- Conor Bradley may be set for a position change as his career progresses, having just made his Reds debut as a right-back
- And Marcelo Pitaluga is set for a potential January loan away as the Brazilian goalkeeper continues to impress in first-team training
Latest Premier League chat
- Dusan Vlahovic has refused to sign a new Fiorentina contract, so expect more boring and pointless links with Arsenal and Spurs in January before he inevitably heads to a Juve or Inter
- Max Aarons is one of the right-backs Man United are considering moving for in January and at this point we suspect Ole is trolling the fanbase by signing someone for every position except the defensive midfielder they need most
- Harry Winks wants to leave Spurs in January and will consider a move abroad, presumably because there’s less chance those teams will have watched his level of performance over the last 18 months and might still offer him a salary

Tonight’s late fixture is Italy vs Spain! It sounds like a European Championship final or something, but it’s only the Nations League we’re afraid. Semis, too.
