From Italy – Liverpool plot move to sign £141million Victor Osimhen to replace fireless Darwin Nunez 



Liverpool splashed big on signing Darwin Nunez last year but the Uruguayan has yet to live up to his price tag.

According to the media, the Reds are interested in securing the services of Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.

According to today’s version of Corriere dello Sport (news photo below), Liverpool are considering signing the centre-forward from Napoli.

The well-known Italian outlet claims that alongside the Merseysiders, Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Newcastle and Bayern are also trying to lure the African.

According to CdS, the new Serie A champions want to keep their superstar striker and will only be allowed to sell him if he receives a club-record offer of €160m (£141m). Chelsea are willing to offer cash plus goalkeeper Kepa and striker Pulisic to meet the asking price, but Osimhen is unwilling to give up Champions League football.

Liverpool need to win their remaining PL games and hope Man Utd and/or Newcastle drop points to earn a place in next season’s elite European tournament.

Nunez scored just 9 goals in 29 Premier League appearances for Klopp. His finishing was a big concern, but it’s clear that he has the quality to do well.

Surely the best option would be to give him one more season as under FSG we cannot expect the club to pay a record £141million to Victor Osimhen. The former Lille striker is currently Italy’s top scorer (23 goals) and would improve any team he joins this summer.


6 young Liverpool players who could make the first team next season

At Liverpool, one academy player has become a fixture in the first team this season while a handful have shown potential – so who could follow next?

In Stefan Bajcetic, the Reds have unearthed a gem just waiting to be polished. The Serbian-born Spaniard now looks set for a long-term role under Jurgen Klopp.

Although Bajcetic’s season ended prematurely due to injury, he showed in his 19 appearances that he can be counted on next season and in the future.

Along with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Curtis Jones and Caoimhin Kelleher, he left the academy to establish himself in the senior team.

There are also other examples such as Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams confirming the club’s focus on youth development as a source for the first team. So who could be an option for Klopp next season?

Marcelo Pitaluga

Age: 20

Position: Goalkeeper

With Kelleher securing a starting XI role and Adrian in the final weeks of his contract, this summer could see big changes to Liverpool’s goalkeeping ranks.

If Kelleher pushes for a move and Adrian’s tenure isn’t extended, John Achterberg and his team will be looking for at least one new signing to back Alisson.

However, as with the current second choice, it’s possible that Liverpool will look to their academy for one of the backup roles.

Pitaluga’s loan spell at Macclesfield was marred by an ankle ligament injury, but he has spent the season training with the first team and visiting Anfield on matchdays with the Brazilian unable to play. – be next. Harvey Davies

Age: 19

Position: Goalkeeper

However, there is a chance that Pitaluga will be passed by a scouser as Davies has progressed with the Under-21s and Under-19s throughout the season.

Davies has been a Liverpool player since U9 level, has developed rapidly in recent years and trains regularly and travels on match days like Pitaluga.

The teenager has kept seven clean sheets in 16 games and conceded just 19 goals. The U21s finished their second season with the best defensive record in the league. He has also been on the bench for the first team seven times this season.

In all likelihood, one of Pitaluga and Davies will remain at No.3 and the other will go on loan, with Alisson showing great potential.

Luke Chambers

Age: 18

Position: Left back, Central defender

Since Klopp is switching to a 3-4-3 system as part of his ‘new LFC’ – as he called it in a recent interview with LFCTV – there are new demands on the manager’s defensive line. Trent Alexander-Arnold comes into midfield at right back while Andy Robertson operates as a hybrid of left back and left centre-back.

The jury is out on Kostas Tsimikas as a backup in that role, but in Chambers the club could have the perfect fit up the ranks.

Chambers is a natural left-back, but has experience at centre-back, both with the Under-21s and on loan at Kilmarnock – and Klopp even used him there during their friendly defeat against Lyon in December.

Conor Bradley

Age: 19

Position: right back

“Our plans are to bring him back, go into preseason, enjoy the steps he’s made and then we’ll decide together what to do from there,” Klopp said of Bradley in April.

“The plans at the moment are to bring him back and keep him, but we’ll see.”

The manager has described Bradley’s loan spell at Bolton as a “victory”, and it’s no surprise why: the Northern Irishman helped his club reach the League One play-offs, scoring seven goals and six assists in 51 games in all competitions. . Whether his wild play at right-back will fit into Liverpool’s new system remains to be seen, but he may have passed Calvin Ramsay in the pecking order.

Tyler Morton

Age: 20

Position: Midfielder

Another player who has impressed on loan – albeit less brilliantly than Bradley – Morton made 46 appearances for Blackburn and assisted four goals before foot surgery ended his season prematurely.

Although he didn’t tear up the Championship like Harvey Elliott did at Ewood Park, the 20-year-old’s time away from Liverpool has shown signs of becoming a talented senior player.

Morton has already made nine first-team appearances for the Reds and in January the club showed a huge vote of confidence by handing him a new long-term contract.

It’s unclear where he fits into Klopp’s midfield rebuild but Morton has every chance of becoming an option. Ben Doak

Age: 17

Position: right winger

During this crazy season, one of the feel-good stories for Liverpool has been Doak’s emergence as a future first-team star.

His luck was partly unavoidable when Klopp made sweeping changes for November’s Carabao Cup clash with Derby, but he definitely took advantage of it.

Doak had a relentless presence down the right flank, looking unmoved both on and off the ball. Although he has yet to add his five appearances, he is still an integral part of first-team training.

There is a compelling theory that Liverpool are looking for youngsters to replace the unbeatable Mohamed Salah – with Kaide Gordon also a contender – and it wouldn’t be surprising if Doak replaced him more often next season.
