Leaked: deal to sign left-footed sensation + Liverpool can agree deal for €50million ace

In Saturday’s Liverpool Roundup, the Reds beat Norwich City 3-0 in the first game of the season and Issahaku confirms his move to the club.

Liverpool beat Norwich City 4-0

In their first game of the 2021/22 Premier League season, Liverpool won 3-0, thanks to goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

It was a dominant display and while the summer has mostly been about the lack of transfer activity, the Reds did the business on the pitch.

It was particularly good to see Virgil van Dijk back on the pitch and the Dutchman was able to complete the full 90 minutes despite not doing so during pre-season.

Fabrizio Romano reveals long-term negotiations between van Dijk and Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk was in long-term discussions with Liverpool and today it was finally announced as the Dutchman recommits himself to the club.

The news was announced on Friday morning and is a huge boost just as the 2021/22 Premier League campaign is set to get underway.

Fabrizio Romano, who reported at the end of 2020 that Liverpool were already initiating talks with van Dijk, says the Reds have been in long-term negotiations with the Dutchman over his now official contract extension.

FSG must atone for Super League fiasco with summer signings

FSG still need to answer for their Super League nonsense and with the club yet to add a second signing, the Americans seem unlikely to break from their transfer model.

When principal owner John W. Henry grovelled and begged for Liverpool fans’ forgiveness, supporters thought they might get major transfers as a kind of apology.

I think many of us forgot who we’re dealing with and it’s fair to commend the owners for securing contract extensions for the likes of Virgil van Dijk but marquee signings like the one that brought the Dutchman to the club in the first place simply aren’t in FSG’s plan for the Anfield outfit.

Liverpool could risk missing out on Mbappe

According to Le Parisien, Real Madrid are ready to submit a bid worth €120million (£102m) to sign Kylian Mbappe and Liverpool risk missing out by waiting until next summer.

The report claims that the La Liga giants are looking to take Mbappe to the Santiago Bernabeu and are ready to launch a massive bid.

If Mbappe wants to leave, Liverpool must act fast as it would no longer be feasible to wait to sign him when his contract expires in 2022.

Liverpool can agree deal to sign Saul

Liverpool can sign Saul Niguez for €50m (£42.4m) before Deadline Day if they submit the right bid.

Spanish news outlet AS claims that Diego Simeone has no place in his squad for Saul after Rodrigo de Paul joined the club.

Sport suggests that the player will be sold if a €50m (£42.4m) offer is received despite the fact that his contract includes a €150m (£127m) release clause.

Florian Neuhaus will not leave Borussia Monchengladbach

The LFC Transfer Room held a Q&A with Florian Plettenberg a couple of weeks ago and he revealed to them that there were multiple calls between Klopp and Neuhaus.

He said: “[The transfer is] not likely this window. There were calls between [Jurgen] Klopp and [Florian] Neuhaus’ management.”

Now, the journalist has relayed news from Max Eberl, manager of Borussia Monchengladbach, and it seems as though Neuhaus will not leave the club.

Liverpool clearly wanted to sign Neuhaus, who would have cost €40million and while his press resistance might have made him the ideal replacement for Gini Wijnaldum, I’m relieved.

Issahaku leaks his move to Liverpool

Despite being refuted by well-trusted sources in England, Anfield Central reported news in June that Liverpool had signed Fatawu Issahaku and the player has confirmed it on his social media.

We reported the news on 17th June and despite an attempt from Manchester United to hijack the 17-year-old’s move to Merseyside, he has confirmed that he has joined Liverpool.

A trusted Ghanian source told us on 25th June that the deal was complete and that there was an “arrangement in place to sign the 2021 U20 AFCON Player of the Tournament.”

He has now reshared a video to his Instagram that is confirmation of the move and should clear up any doubt that he has joined the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp ‘appreciates’ Todd Cantwell

Liverpool reportedly want to sign Cantwell and the Englishman perfectly fits the FGS model for transfers.

90Min claims that Jurgen Klopp ‘appreciates’ Norwich City’s Cantwell and West Ham United’s Jarrod Bowen and wanted to sign Ismaila Sarr but Watford weren’t willing to sell for £30m.

Cantwell, unlike Bowen, is a player that could really fit in at Liverpool and has massive potential to be a great player in the Premier League.
