Liverpool shatter Man Utd and Man City plot plans as Jurgen Klopp takes charge of £77 million worth star who can solve key Reds problem 



After weeks of scouting, Liverpool are reportedly trying to sign Benfica defender Antonio Silva this summer.

The Reds could face competition for his services with Manchester City and Manchester United also interested in the 19-year-old.
Only last summer, Silva signed a senior contract with Benfica until 2027, so the price for his services will be very high.

The centre-back’s contract does indeed come with a £77m release clause, Football Insider have pointed out. With three Premier League heavyweights in competition, Liverpool may have to pay that sum.

Silva has played 26 league games for Benfica this year, scoring three goals.

With the Portuguese giants leading the league by four points this season, the teenager has been crucial to their success.
Silva, a strong centre-back with a long passing range, could end up being a great long-term signing for Liverpool. But only if they can sign him before Manchester City and Manchester United. Klopp plans Liverpool defense overhaul

It is well known, Jürgen Klopp wants to strengthen his defense this summer. In fact, the manager is said to be worried that his backline won’t be able to fight for the titles.

Their lack of depth at centre-back has been revealed by the recent injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate, with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip struggling to replace the injured duo.

This was one of the main factors that allowed Klopp’s side to be seventh in the current Premier League. However, the aging midfielder also proved to be a problem. As mentioned in previous reports, Eintracht Frankfurt centre-back Evan Ndicka, who will be available on a free transfer, is one of Liverpool’s main defensive targets.

Ndicka, on the other hand, would be considered by Napoli as a replacement for Kim Min-jae, who could move to Man City.

For some time there has also been talk of Josko Gvardiol in relation to the transfer to Anfield. But with RB Leipzig imposing an £80m price tag on him, Liverpool can no longer sign the powerhouse.

The Reds may therefore have to look elsewhere for a new centre-back. Silva would be a nice addition as he has the potential to become a top player in the future.

Klopp’s current priority is to secure a place in European competition next season. The Champions League is almost certainly out of reach. However, there is always competition for the Europa League and the Europa Conference League.

What is certain is that Liverpool will refresh both their defense and midfield this summer no matter what.


‘Nothing but injustice’ – National media make Liverpool ‘rescued’ point after West Ham win as David Moyes rages at VAR

A look at how the national media covered Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over West Ham United in the Premier League

Liverpool have rekindled their hopes for next season’s European football after coming from behind to beat West Ham United 2-1 at the London Stadium.

The Hammers took a 12-minute lead when Lucas Paqueta got past Alisson Becker. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side responded six minutes later through Cody Gakpo.

Joel Matip then scored what proved to be the winner in the 67th minute with a powerful header from Andy Robertson’s corner. However, there was drama in the closing stages as West Ham wanted a penalty after Thiago Alcantara had fiddled in the box, but on-field referee Chris Kavanagh rejected appeals and Neil Swarbrick, serving as VAR, agreed the decision. Hammers boss David Moyes was furious that neither man conceded a decision, and below is how the national media and Liverpool ECHO covered the match.

Moyes was right

Kieran Gill of the Daily Mail wrote: “According to Stylist magazine, white shirts are all the rage this season and everyone who is anyone is wearing one. Tell that to Liverpool, who were most tempted to throw their own into the River Mersey.

“But on the sixth attempt, Jurgen Klopp’s men are finally winners in white. They have banned the curse from their away match here at the London Stadium, with West Ham unable to join a list of frustrators which includes Manchester United, Arsenal, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace.”

Before adding: “Moyes was right – PGMOL actually claimed last night that Thiago broke his fall. For Liverpool they are back in fashion and are back in the top six of the Premier League.

“Klopp might be tempted to give it his all for Sir Alex Ferguson and let his team play the second half in something other than those crappy white shirts. They were so cursed that even Liverpool’s Under-21s lost all three tyres. of the Papas Johns Trophy when they wore the stripe.

“Liverpool was controlled”

Gary Jacob of The Times wrote: “In a furious and acrimonious end to the match at the London Stadium, a handful of West Ham supporters stormed the pitch and Moyes approached to have stern words with Chris Kavanagh, the referee, on what was happening.He felt there should have been a penalty last minute as Thiago Alcântara leapt into a tackle on Danny Ings and handled the ball as he went down.Moyes became even angrier after Kevin Nolan, his first-team coach, showed him a replay of the incident.

“Kavanagh waved it off and VAR Neil Swarbrick felt Thiago’s arm broke his fall and the ball bounced to hit him from close range – a move West Ham have yet to make for ensure his safety in the game and secure the Premier League; They are five points above the relegation zone.

He added: “Liverpool have been checked and can move up to fifth if they avoid defeat in their game against Aston Villa after winning a third successive league game for only the second time this season. Jurgen Klopp spoke to want a place in Europe and plan to play Trent Alexander-Arnold in his new role as a hybrid

midfielder next season.”

‘Indecipherable handball laws save Liverpool’

Jacob Steinberg of the Guardian wrote: “Liverpool are not done yet. Jürgen Klopp invented Trent Alexander-Arnold 2.0, unleashing the full arsenal of the right-back by placing him in midfield, stripping him of his defensive responsibilities, and also has more ways to win matches with Luis Díaz fit again.

“If it’s not quite a throwback to the days of minded monsters, it’s certainly encouraging for Klopp. This was Liverpool’s third successive win, which saw them hold on to their slim hopes of finishing in the top four, and it wasn’t without a hard earned fight.

West Ham were tough and creative opponents, though slow to react to Klopp’s substitutions just before Joël Matip headed in the decisive goal, and had cause for anger after failing to receive a penalty when Thiago fielded the Alcântara in the last minutes. “The increasingly incomprehensible laws surrounding handball saved Liverpool. You could say Thiago didn’t get a chance to get out of the way as he lunged at Danny Ings and more or less kicked the ball to the turf, but West Ham were furious at VAR’s refusal to to intervene. David Moyes’ side, who remain five points clear of the bottom three, have seen nothing but injustice.”

“The Europa League is the minimum objective”

Liverpool ECHO’s Paul Gorst wrote: “Liverpool don’t exactly have the perfect timing but there could be something else waiting for them at the end of their end of season replay.

“This narrow 2-1 victory here against West Ham puts Jurgen Klopp on a three-game winning streak in five games unbeaten, which is his team’s second-best streak of the season after four wins in five games in mid-February and early February. March.. It’s starting to look vaguely like consistency, which could bring them something few would have thought possible just a few weeks ago.

Now six and a half points clear of the top four, the Reds will continue to keep a close eye on developments there, particularly when fourth-placed Manchester United visit Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday evening. same night will also be one to be reckoned with.

“It may be too little, too late for Klopp and his players, but they seem determined to at least test the resolve of those above them. Sixth now, the Europa League is the minimum target from now on. Football European, however it may be it comes.”
