Surprise Origi Juve links & 4 Reds out for Chelsea – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool and the rest of the world head into 2022 tonight – and we finish this year in familiar fashion, with absences and dodgy transfer rumours!


Origi off to Juve?!

We are sometimes told to take transfer links with a pinch of salt. We suggest this one you take with the entire salt mill!

Divock Origi is on the watchlist for Juventus and they have made the “first steps” in prepping a January bid for him, say Gazzetta.

Weirdly, they say they only want him as an additional attacking option if Alvaro Morata stays – he’s wanted by Barcelona – and that they might look elsewhere if Morata leaves.

It’s all very odd and doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but there you go.


Injuries, Covid…the usual

  • The Reds are linked with a free transfer move from ‘Gladbach but it’s not Denis Zakaria – instead it’s central defender Matthias Ginter

  • Sven Botman is on the wanted list for Newcastle‘s rebuild, a year after he was heavily linked with the Reds. Sad downgrade that, though maybe not as bad as Kabak’s situation…
  • Alexander Isak is one of the strikers Arsenal are looking at as they look to finally become a relevant side again
