Video: Liverpool sign up a ‘Dribbler’ as goalkeeper

Top English football club, Liverpool, who are capable of challenging Man City to lift the EPL trophy this season are by far one of the strongest team.

The Reds were closed to lifting the UEFA Champions League trophy last season before they lost to Real Madrid in the final.

But the Jurgen Klopp led squad have made some massive changes to their squad to avoid a similar case this season.

As the club had gone ahead to bring in new players as they spent extensively in the summer transfer window.

In fact, the Reds were named as the club that spent the most in the English Summer transfer window spending a total of £170 million.

Liverpool didn’t just buy ordinary players but talented ones like Nabil Keita, Fabinho, Shaqiri and Alisson Becker.

Of the four signing, only the duo of Keita and Becker have started for the Reds this season and they have been wonderful.

In fact, Liverpool new signing, Alisson Becker is more of a dribbler than a goalkeeper.

The Brazil international was seen in a risky position dribbling Brighton forward during the weekend game at Anfield.

Klopp is happy with the performance of the goalkeeper but not with dribbling performance.

He also weighed in with 17 assists for Bayer Leverkusen this season.

Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is reportedly in contention for the vacant managerial job at Juventus this summer.

The Italian champions will have to appoint a new permanent manager after it was revealed that current boss Maximiliano Allegri will leave his post at the end of this season.

According to trusted Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea manager Sarri and Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi are contenders for the Juventus job.

Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi was said to have held discrete talks with senior Juventus officials about the possibility of becoming the club’s new manager.

Simone Inzaghi has a contract that runs till next summer at Lazio and Juventus officials will have to discuss compensation with the capital club if they want to poach their manager.

For Chelsea boss Sarri, his time at Stamford Bridge might be coming to an end with recent reports claiming that the Blues are eyeing club legend Frank Lampard as his replacement.

Former Chelsea midfielder Lampard has done a very good job at English Championship club Derby County since he was made the manager last summer.

The ex-England international star has led Derby County to the brink of a return to Premier League football after leading the Rams to the final of the Championship Playoffs where they will face Aston Villa.

Leandro Trossard

This is the second time the English Premier League outfit Arsenal will be indicating interest in the signature of star forward Leandro Trossard for a move to the Emirates Stadium.

The first contact was reportedly made in November before the January winter transfer window but a deal did not happen.

Now that the Gunners are in search of a wide forward, Leandro Trossard’s name has again popped up in the wishlist but he has got a word for the Arsenal team.

The Belgian forward made it clear that he will not be leaving Genk for anything because he is happy at the club.

According to him, the major priority is to see his family happy and that will only be achieved if he remains at the club.

Leandro Trossard stressed that he is ready to fight for a starting role in the Genk team to be able to secure more playing time.

Meanwhile, the North London outfit are looking forward to having a better team ahead of the coming season while there is a need to replace England international forward Danny Welbeck who is leaving the club in the summer window.

Howbeit, Arsenal will be missing out of the Champions League for the third consecutive time but that could change if they are able to secure a win against Chelsea in the Europa League finals.

The North London outfit Arsenal are reported to have made their first contact with Spanish La Liga outfit Valencia for the signature of their star goalkeeper Norberto Murara who is also known as Neto.

The London outfit is set to part ways with their legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech now that the season has ended with the former Chelsea stopper already announcing his retirement from active football in the course of the season.

This has forced Arsenal to move out in the summer transfer market for a goalkeeper who will serve as an option to Bernd Leno ahead of the coming season.

Petr Cech has been the first Choice goalkeeper since he arrived at the North London outfit but everything changed with the coming of the former Bayern Leverkusen stopper in the last summer transfer window.

Bernd Leno came directly into the team to emerge as the first choice goalkeeper ahead of the former Chelsea stopper.

Just like the usual practice, Bernd Leno kept the English Premier League games while Petr Cech took charge of the Europa League games.

Now that he will be leaving the club, the Valencia goalkeeper who has a contract running with the Spanish La Liga outfit until 2021 is reported to have a release clause of €80 million.

Transfer Hope!!! Arsenal target leaves club for free

This remains another opportunity for the North London outfit Arsenal to have their long-term target Juanfran at the club.

It is reported that Juanfran has already played his last game for the Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid as he would be leaving as a free player.

Reports in March had claimed that Juanfran agreed to extend his contract at the Spanish capital for another year on the condition that he would be handed 25 starting appearances in the league but that did not happen eventually.

Juanfran only saw 22 appearances which did not meet the condition for him to have another year stay at the club. He will, therefore, be leaving as a free player.

Having refused an approach by the North London outfit earlier on, Arsenal could return to lure the player as he would be a free player in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal have got the big need of a right Fullback ahead of the coming season with Hector Bellerin and Stephan, all looking inconsistent in their performance in the course of the just concluded season.

There is no doubt that securing the signature of Juanfran, the North London outfit would have made a major step in solving their defensive crisis for the coming season.

There is no doubt that the English Premier League outfit Arsenal are keen to land a replacement for the outgoing goalkeeper Petr Cech for the coming season.

Petr Cech announced his decision to quit active football at the end of the season and could be set for a coaching role at his former side, West London outfit Chelsea.

The Legendary goalkeeper has got an opportunity to leave the stage when the ovation is high by retiring with the Europa League title as Arsenal will be playing Chelsea in the finals, later on Thursday.

However, Arsenal are reported to have indicated interest in the signature of 20-year- old goalkeeper Markus Schubert on a free transfer from 2. Bundesliga club Dynamo Dresden, if reports from Germany are to be believed.

Schubert seems to be the solution for the defensive crisis at the Emirates Stadium after making 43 appearances for the second-tier German club and keeping 12 clean sheets. His performances earned him call-ups to every German national side up to the u21s, so he’s clearly thought of highly in his home country.

It is, therefore, unclear if Markus Schubert will accept to be a third choice goalkeeper behind Emi Martinez but one sure thing is his coming to fight for a shirt.

The emerging report reveals that 2 French Ligue 1 outfits Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are both keen to land the signature of North London outfit Arsenal Starlet Tyreece John-Jules ahead of the summer transfer window.

Tyreece John-Jules only signed his professional contract with the Gunners team in 2018 with the deal expected to run until 2020 which means the contract is due for a renewal or he would be made to leave the club as a free player.

This is why the two French Ligue 1 outfits have come out to try their luck for the signature of the Arsenal young striker and they are already reported to be preparing an offer to land him as soon as the summer window is opened.

Tyreece John-Jules has shown big prospect as a youth player and that is already receiving attention from other top European clubs. This means Arsenal must act fast to hand Tyreece John-Jules a new deal at the club to be able to keep Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco out of his sight.

It is important to note that John-Jules scored 16 goals and provided eight others in 30 appearances for the academy this season while his link-up play is a major strength that has helped him out.

West Ham United are reportedly interested in a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero this summer.

According to the specific report from the London Evening Standard, the Hammers are in need of a new backup goalkeeper and the aging Willy Caballero fits the bill.

Argentine international Caballero joined Chelsea from Premier League champions Manchester City and he has played second fiddle since he became a Blue.

The Hammers want to make him their second choice goalkeeper behind first choice Lukasz Fabianski.

Polish international shot stopper Fabianski has been in sensational form for the Hammers since his transfer from Swansea City last summer.

West Ham United were said to have paid around £7m to sign Fabianski from already relegated Swansea City.

The former Arsenal goalkeeper made the most saves amongst the Premier League goalkeepers at the end of the league season in the top flight of English football.

Willy Caballero has few months left on his Chelsea and he’s likely to leave this summer for West Ham United probably though a deal is still far from happening.

He was the understudy to Thibaut Courtois before the Belgian shot stopper left for Real Madrid last summer.

Courtois was replaced by Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in a world-record deal for a shot stopper.

Isco Chelsea on red alert

Real Madrid midfielder Isco will reportedly snub the transfer advances of Italian Serie A champions Juventus to stay at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

The Spanish international player has been constantly linked with a move away from Real Madrid this summer but popular Italian transfer news portal Calciomercato confirmed that the player has decided to snub all the interested clubs including Premier League giants Liverpool.

Isco endured a frustrating time during the four months under Santiago Solari before he was sacked earlier this season.

Real Madrid sacked two managers before they brought back French football legend Zinedine Zidane at the start of March.

Ex-Spanish national team manager Julen Lopetegui was the manager that started this season at Real Madrid before the former FC Porto boss was booted out of office after just three months.

Lopetegui paid the price for a poor run of results after making a bright start to his dream job.

The aforementioned Solari was with the Real Madrid Castilla (youth team) before he was appointed manager on an interim basis.

His appointment was made permanent after a blistering start but he was unable to sustain it just like what was obtainable with Julen Lopetegui.

Isco was a relieved man after Solari was sacked earlier this year having been frozen out of the Real Madrid squad by the Argentine tactician.

This is according to well respected journalist Guillem Balague.

The Spanish media practitioner spoke about the young Ajax Amsterdam skipper while he was on BBC Radio 5 Live as he said that the Reds are in the frame to sign him.

Liverpool will have to contend with other major European clubs in their quest to sign De Ligt.

Spanish champions Barcelona were thought to be the overwhelming favourites but the La Liga giants have found it difficult to negotiate a transfer successfully with the player’s agent, Mino Raiola.

Others interested include Italian champions Juventus and Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Matthijs De Ligt has shown maturity beyond his years after leading Ajax Amsterdam to their first domestic double for over a decade.

He’s the youngest skipper in the history of Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam after being handed the armband at the age of 18.

De Ligt was instrumental to Ajax Amsterdam and their league triumph this season at the expense of rivals PSV Eindhoven.

Apart from the Dutch Eredivisie title, Ajax also won the Dutch Cup via the 4-0 defeat of fellow top flight side Willem II.
