Welcome to Liverpool.com’s daily Media Digest. From transfers to tweets, it can be difficult to keep up with everything that is happening in the Anfield sphere. Credible, incredible, and anything in between: we’re bringing it all together in one place here, taking a side look at media news from around the world.
Thrilling winger tied
Liverpool are interested in signing Villarreal forward Arnaut Danjuma from the Spanish side after watching him closely, according to Football Insider.
Danjuma has only moved to La Liga from Bournemouth for just over £ 21million this summer, with Liverpool watching him during his time in the league.
The 24-year-old Dutchman has scored 15 times and assisted seven times in 33 league appearances last season, while since moving to Spain he has two out of five in La Liga and one goal and one assist in two League games. champions.
The goals, it seems, translate into the elite, but given that Villarreal has only recently spent quite a large fee on him, trying to convince them to sell for a reasonable price so quickly might turn out to be worth it. prove difficult.
Liverpool stars unhappy with FIFA ratings
FIFA 22 is out and Liverpool players aren’t particularly happy with how they’ve been rated.
Andy Robertson and Virgil van Dijk were caught on camera handing out VIP copies of the game to their teammates on Friday, but brought bad news to many.
Mohamed Salah is down from a rating to 89 (“I scored more goals last season than the previous season!” Was his response), while Curtis Jones was shocked to find that he was not rated. than at 73.
Joe Gomez (rated at 82) was also unhappy, saying: “It’s a mess… it’s a mess, I don’t want it!”
Joël Matip was another not to be impressed, although Virgil van Dijk was quick to joke about the Cameroonian’s dribble score.
“68 dribbles? Kidding with EA Sports? Said Van Dijk. “I am launching a petition so that Joël with 85 dribbles at least!”
Bisouma’s interest “remains”
Yves Bissouma is said to be “always” a transfer option for Liverpool and Manchester United, although the Reds never replaced him during the summer.
The Brighton man is desperate to join a Champions League club and has some obvious qualities that Jürgen Klopp might like, but after taking in £ 50million for Ben White the Seagulls don’t need the money .
Speaking on the transfer window podcast, Duncan Castles stressed that Liverpool “remain interested” in the player due to his “statistical profile”, but it remains to be seen whether the Reds will take a step.
Bisouma wouldn’t be cheap and there are better value options.
Preston confirms Liverpool talks
Preston has confirmed that Sepp van den Berg will hope to be eligible to play against parent club Liverpool in the Carabao Cup meeting between the teams later this month.
The Lancashire team say they have contacted the Reds and are awaiting confirmation of a decision one way or the other.
Asked about his reaction to the draw, Van den Berg said: “I had mixed feelings. To be honest, I was just happy to play a great team in the next round, but then again I know it was is Liverpool, so it’s still my club.
“I already knew in advance that if it was Liverpool I might have a hard time playing, but just seeing the reaction from everyone at the club and the fans you can see that it ‘it’s a really big game for everyone here, so he’s a great opponent to play. “
Klopp a wanted man
Laughing reports in Spain suggest Barcelona are fielding Liverpool boss Klopp to replace the late manager Ronald Koeman.
According to El Nacional, Klopp is on Barcelona’s list of potential candidates, alongside River Plate boss Marcelo Gallardo, Xavi Hernandez, Roberto Martinez and Andrea Pirlo.
Koeman is yet to be sacked and players including Frenkie de Jong quickly backed him up after the midweek Champions League loss to Benfica, but it seems to be a matter of time before the start of the former boss of Everton.
One thing is certain, however: Klopp will not be his replacement.
