Xavi ‘wants’ Salah, Championship star linked & new Robbo injury worry – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are signing (supposedly) and selling (if you say so) and keep on working that treatment table (this one’s true) harder than any central midfielder in the top flight.


Teen talent to follow Harvey Elliott’s path?

The Reds have been linked with a few transfers on Tuesday, some rather less likely than others, some with rather less reputable sources than others.

Among the more believable – both the rumour and the outlet – are rumours suggesting Fulham attacker Fabio Carvalho is on our wishlist, with the Reds set to battle Chelsea, Southampton and Real Madrid for his signature this summer.

He’s out of contract at the end of the campaign and looks set to leave, he’s 19 years of age and reasonably versatile – we’ve seen a teenager fit that profile move from Craven Cottage to Anfield in the recent past, after all.

Still want the other one? Fine, Liverpool are after Mikel Merino as an alternative to Jude Bellingham. Did warn you.

And another? Fine, Barcelona are “silently working” on a deal to sign Mohamed Salah which Xavi wants “at all costs”, say Spanish media. Now that’s enough!

  • Jesse Lingard is to become the face of the new Newcastle with a January deal, though it doesn’t actually mention if this is to play football or do all their social media posts
