LIVERPOOL-DARWIN NUNEZ LINKS FULL STORY
Benfica striker is linked with a move to Anfield. Klopp is keen on bringing the young striker to the team. The feeling is mutual as he wants to join Liverpool over Manchester United. Although, there is one problem. Liverpool is reluctant to do business at Benfica’s asking price. The asking price is £85m. Liverpool doesn’t want to be drawn into a bidding war with Manchester United. United has also shown interest in the talented Portuguese striker. However, those close to Benfica have indicated they are open to a structured deal. The Portuguese side would like Liverpool to pay an initial £68 million upfront and £17.1 million in add-ons. Any potential deal would depend on a potential sale of Sadio Mane and Takumi Minamino.
HOW COULD LIVERPOOL LINEUP IF POTENTIAL TRANSFERS DO GO THROUGH
Allison is going to be the number one keeper. Caoimhin Keller is going to be the backup goalkeeper. The centre-back options expected are Virgil Van Djik, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip. The fullbacks expected are Trent Alexander Arnold and Andy Robertson. The midfield options are Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho, Naby Kieta, Harvey Elliot, and James Milner.
