A report has revealed three players who could follow Jurgen Klopp out of Liverpool in the summer, while there is January interest in two Arsenal players…
THREE TO FOLLOW KLOPP?
A report in Spain has claimed three Liverpool players could leave in the summer with Jurgen Klopp after the German announced his departure from Anfield.
Klopp will leave the Premier League club at the end of the season after winning six major trophies since joining Liverpool from Borussia Dortmund in 2015.
His departure has immediately led to speculation over who will succeed him in the Anfield hotseat.
Former Reds midfielder Xabi Alonso, who is one of the hottest coaching properties in the world after leading Bayer Leverkusen to the top of the Bundesliga, is the early bookmakers’ favourite while former captain Steven Gerrard is also sure to be in contention.
While there have already been rumours that Mohamed Salah is now sure to leave at the same time as the German with Liverpool lining up his replacement.
And Spanish website Fichajes claims Salah, Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota ‘could leave Liverpool after Klopp’s announcement’ with the Reds set to lose ‘key players in the team structure’.
Salah is ‘considering leaving Anfield’ with Liverpool preparing for more bids from Saudi Arabia for their star man after turning down a £150m offer in the summer.
Thiago, who has struggled to make it out on the pitch this season, and his future are ‘linked to Klopp’s departure’ and Fichajes reckon he will now leave on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.
Jota is described as the ‘third piece on the board’ and Klopp’s exit ‘could open the door to a possible Jota departure, especially given the competition in Liverpool’s attacking department’.
William Saliba, Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Martinelli celebrate a goal.
TWO WINTER DEPARTURES AT ARSENAL?
Arsenal duo Fabio Vieira and Cedric Soares could leave the Emirates Stadium before the end of the January transfer window, according to reports.
The Gunners have done no business so far this winter with no incomings or outgoings at the Emirates but that could change with clubs keen on Vieira and Soares.
And the Evening Standard claims Soares, who has made two appearances in all competitions for Arsenal this season, is ‘attracting interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray’ after entering the final six months of his £100k-a-week contract.
And Football Transfers insist that ‘Monaco and one other French club have enquired about a loan deal’ for Arsenal midfielder Vieira, who has struggled to nail down a place in Mikel Arteta’s first team since joining in 2022.
Despite also suffering with injuries, the report adds that ‘there is still a chance the player could leave in this window, especially with the return to full fitness of Arsenal fan favourite Emile Smith Rowe, and new signing Kai Havertz who has taken up Vieira’s spot.’
