Liverpool and Egypt international forward Mohamed Salah has not been in particularly great form so far this season, and he has been criticised by pundits. While Erling Haaland is banging in the goals for fun for Manchester City, Premier League title rivals Liverpool is not having much joy with Salah. Salah has scored ‘just’ two goals and given two assists in six Premier League appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side so far this campaign. The 30-year-old forward has also scored one goal in two UEFA Champions League matches for Liverpool this campaign.
Now, those stats are not poor at all, but there have still been criticisms of Salah, probably because of the high standards that he has set over the years. Former Arsenal star Paul Merson and Liverpool legend Graeme Souness are among those who have questioned Salah’s form this season. (more…)Continue reading »
According to 90 min, Liverpool and Manchester United have retained their interest in Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane, despite claims that he will not be sold this summer. The reigning Bundesliga champions could be open to selling the former Manchester City attacker for the right price. Sane returned to Germany with Bayern Munich a couple of years ago after four seasons with Manchester City. The attacker did not quite set the Premier League on fire but showed flashes of brilliance, accumulating 37 goals and 46 assists in 134 matches across all competitions for the Citizens.
Sane eventually forced a move to Bayern Munich in the 2020 summer transfer window and has made 91 appearances for the Bavarian giants since then, scoring 25 goals and providing 28 assists. There were reports that with the arrival of Sadio Mane, Sane could fall down the pecking order, fuelling rumours of a possible summer exit. All such reports were shot down by Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, who dismissed reports linking the German international with a return to the Premier League amid links with Liverpool and Manchester United.

Liverpool attacker Xerdan Shaqiri looks to have already found an escape route from the English Premier League club after they revealed a confirmation that they have officially agreed to sell the player to French Ligue 1 club Olympique Lyon this summer. The Switzerland international forward has long been deemed surplus to requirements at Anfield after falling out of favor with manager Jurgen Klopp and losing a place in the starting XI of the team. He told the club earlier this summer that he had made up his mind already and was ready to look for another club while the transfer window was still on and Lyon were the most serious club that shows interest in signing him.
Lyon opened talks with Liverpool about signing the player but it did not go without a hitch in negotiations.

Lyon eventually returned with another bid and it was indeed a bigger offer they brought the second time. The French club increased their offer to £9 million and it matched Liverpool’s demands so a deal was struck between the two clubs for the transfer of the player. (more…)Continue reading »

This time around, the club in question is English Premier League giants Liverpool and the player they are rumored to be targeting is Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé. This is not the first time that the Reds will be linked with a move for the France international forward but it is somewhat appearing more serious now than it has ever been.
Although there are a lot of expectations that Mbappé may be leaving Paris Saint-Germain anytime soon, only a few of the believers of his potential future PSG exit will expect him to move to Anfield and that is because he has always made it clear that he would fancy a move to Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid.
