Slot still in Liverpool, work permit troubles & Colwill talk resurfaces – Latest LFC News

Arne Slot is in the city as he gears up to officially take over at Liverpool on June 1, but reports have also surfaced over work permit issues for one of his key men from Feyenoord.


Slot days away from starting

The Dutchman is just days away from his official start date, and after being first seen on Merseyside last week, he remains in the city ahead of his June 1 start date.

The Echo‘s Paul Gorst reiterated that he is already in town and will be getting acquainted with his new home ahead of a big move for himself and his family.

With no players to oversee over the coming weeks, there will be plenty of time for talks with Liverpool’s new hierarchy and the little matter of summer transfers!

Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, was spotted leaving the city on Wednesday in a private plane after his final farewell – the new era at Liverpool truly is upon us!

  • Ibrahima Konate is attracting reports of interest from PSG, but the Frenchman continues to hold talks with Liverpool over a new contract
  • Work permit issues are proving troublesome for Liverpool and Etienne Reijnen, a key man for Slot, with the analyst and technical advisor feeling the brunt of the Brexit fallout
