Liverpool vs Bournemouth Live Stream : Premier League new boys travel to Anfield

Published

on

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is plotting a stunning move to bring Napoli striker Edinson Cavani to Anfield before the end of the transfer window.

The Reds chief has placed the Urugyuan at the top of his hit list as he continues his search for a strike that can fill in for the suspended Luis Suarez. Andy Carroll continues to struggle with the anniversary of his record breaking £35 million move from Newcastle fast approaching whilst Dirk Kuyt’s drop in form has persuaded Dalglish he needs a proven centre forward to fire the club back into Europe.

Liverpool v Bournemouth Sat 15th August 2015

Whilst Craig Bellamy has impressed up front the Welshman is always susceptible to breaking down with injury and Dalglish know’s he can’t rely on Carroll and Kuyt to provide goals. Liverpool have scored just four times in as many Premier League games since Suarez’s suspension winning just once and dropping below Arsenal and Newcastle in pursuit of the top four.

Cavani has now emerged as a serious target for the 60-year-old who is toying with the idea of pairing him with fellow countryman Suarez in a devastating attacking partnership. The duo linked up to great effect in the World Cup two years ago and Dalglish is convinced the partnership could turn the club into serious title contenders next season.

The 24-year-old certainly knows where the net is scoring 51 times in 72 games since moving to the Stadio San Paolo in the summer of 2010 but could be coaxed into joining Suarez in England. Chelsea and Manchester City have also been credited with an interest in Cavani but were put off by Napoli’s £30 million asking price although it’s thought Dalglish is willing to spend big to capture the 6ft 2in striker.

    I truly wish they can sign Cavani, he’s truly world class and would have the same impact as Fernando Torres in his prime. We need to sign him and loan out Carroll and Henderson. Lets also bring in xherdan shaquiri, Georginio Wijnaldum and Javi Martinez, then we’ll be a match for any team. Please Mr Dalglish get Cavani

    im praying Ralph’ the only reason this could happen is luis might persuade him we can’t seem to attract this elite type of player at the moment please let it be true he’d fire us to europe. now get danny to talk to christian eriksen.

    Cavani + mvila will bring what we don’t have in the team. Sell Carroll , max ,Cole ,aquilani and Charlie Adam.
    Next summer liverpool should consider selling Kuyt also

    haha….chelsea, man city and I guess Real all put off by the 30 mill price tag.

    January 27, 2012 at 12:35 AM

    Are u sure this man was offered to CFC for 30m and they turned up their noses? Their whole front line including Torres is not worth 30m. Do u think that may have someting to do with the dismall scoring they are getting from their front line?

  15. mr no problem

    January 27, 2012 at 12:46 AM

    yeah would be a great signing, i can’t see Napoli selling Cavani while they are still in Champions league. but anything is possible he’s surely world class. we need about three players but all i heard is pour rumours.

  16. feroz

    January 27, 2012 at 1:07 AM

    if this happen liverpool will have a deadliest strikeforce in the league.add mauricio isla from udinese,eden hazard plus moussa sow from lille,mesut ozil from real madrid and geitan from benfica.comolli do you work wisely thanks!!

  17. Redhouse

    January 27, 2012 at 1:11 AM

    Shaun – would you rather go to a team fighting for the premiership and who is DEFINITELY going to be in the champions league next year, or a squad who are struggling to even get 5th?

  18. RAUL

    January 27, 2012 at 2:00 AM

    Id love this deal to happen but what are the chances of CAVANI coming to kopland. persuasion isnt the only thing first of all the transfer fee must be considered plus wages after all these factors, we will have to hope that Suarez will convince CAVANI to sign WHAT A PARTNERSHIP THAT WOULD BE???

    HOW ABOUT TEVEZ+SUAREZ??
    just a thought

    Signing Cavani will be the best choice of my Liverpool…Sell Carroll

  20. SAY

    January 27, 2012 at 4:33 AM

    the two players Lfc needs to come up are Cavani an Eriksen. Pls king, go for them now that top four is still attainable 4 us and loan some.

    Andy Carroll should go he is a lazy player and buy few good players to build up the team .

    As much as I would like this to happen If it does I’ll eat my hat. Sorry but I think this is made nonsense by some putting 2 and 2 together and getting 30million!

  24. Joshua

    January 27, 2012 at 8:05 AM

    Yes. Cavani and Suarez would be amazing on the same pitch. Loan Carroll to West Ham in the summer for next season. He will play for a small Premier League side and gain experience. Sell Kuyt, Maxi and Aquilani and pick up Granero, and Honda.

  25. Dave

    January 27, 2012 at 8:09 AM

    lmao. why would he go to Liverpool? He would only leave Napoli for a better club, which Liverpool aren’t

  26. Steve

    January 27, 2012 at 8:12 AM

    @Shaun – No one cares about the Carling Cup. Liverpool weren’t even good enough to qualify for the Champions League and will be lucky to finish 6th this season. So what exactly do they have to offer Cavani?

  27. cheslinw

    January 27, 2012 at 8:21 AM

    Why is KK so hesitant to sign a striker or any other player for that matter. We need Cavani whatever the price. Even if Kuyt and Carroll were scoring more we would still need a player of Cavani`s calibre.

  28. muhammed sanni

    January 27, 2012 at 8:39 AM

    Cavani is the most biggest goals hunter in europe for now if liverpool bring cavani to anfield to partner with suarez maybe Liverpool will be able to finish to four this season.

  29. Paaro

    January 27, 2012 at 8:47 AM

    @Steve, we have the money to offer to him, that’s why we should go for him..

  30. mikeob

    January 27, 2012 at 9:09 AM

    Signing on Cavani now will definately open up the floodgates of goals galore and put LFC among the top four.Hopefully,the deal materialises and is not just another hot air rumour.

    i’d rather we signed a winger than a striker.and 8 out of 10 people that commented here criticised Carroll,how disgraceful for Liverpool Football Club.Adam Johnson or Mauricio Isla and the 1st lineup is strong,plus there is depth in the bench too:

    Reina
    Johnson Skrtel Agger Enrique
    A.Johnson Gerrard Lucas Downing
    Suarez

    Man city may well be top of the league for now and you say man city have regular champions league football lol you get a brain it was citys first time in the champions league and the couldn’t even get through qualifying and as for people saying the carling cup is useless at the end of the day its a trophy and one more than most teams are getting this year!

    If we sign Cavani, oh my god! However we need a centre back, two wingers and striker which should be cavani. Would be dreaming if we got lavezzi too. I’m a liverpool supporter, can’t see us buuying 3 worldclass players possibly one and rest probably overated english players. Hope thats not the case and hope we learn the players we’ve bought this season. Carrol needs to go home, we should of kept that 35m and bought cavani last year.

    Dream on he’s staying at Napoli, hes one of the reasons they are performing so well and capable of beating teams like Inter and Juve within the Seria A and the Coppa Italia, Why would he settle for coming to a mediocre Premier team when he is playing a part in building new Seria A champions.

  40. Ebenz

    January 27, 2012 at 1:33 PM

    We need Cavani as soon as possible. We closed our eyes and spent heavily to get Carol and Suarez and Suarez is doing pretty well. For Andy, I sympathise with him. KD has to be proactive to bring on this guy because Luis needs a good partner upfront to take full advantage of his powerful deliveries in front of goal. My expectation when Suarez was bought was that LFC would not sell Torres to allow him partner with the Uruguayan. If we don’t start offloading some guys and buying like Man City, top four will just continue to be a dream for Anfield. Third season running we’ve been out of europe. Glen johnson should be used as a forward player on the right flank, he’s always jittery when used as a left back.

  41. dave

    January 27, 2012 at 1:52 PM

    Cavani looks nice in blue. Mike n Mr ‘no problem’ are quite right. Napoli are really flying at the moment. City don’t need him now, it’ll suit Cavani just fine to move to the Etihad at the end of the season along with Lavezzi, Aguero’s old mate.

    ALL USE SAYING STUFF ABOUT LIVERPOOL THINKING MAN CITY ARE AMAXING ARE STUPID!!! SORRY BUT BEFORE CITY GOT ALL THERE MONEY THEY WAS NOTHING SO SHUT UP!! LFC ARE THE BEST WE HAVE STRUGGLED FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS HAVING MINIMUM AMOUNTS OF MONEY AND WE HAVE STILL WON THE CHAPIONS LEAGUE? CITY HAVE ALL THIS MONEY N CRT EVEN WIN A GOOD CUP… ALL THAT MONEY TO WASTE WAIT TILL YOUR OWNERS SELL USE BECAUSE USE HAVE MADE NO PROGRESS REGARDING HOW MUCH U HAVE SPENT!!!!!

    January 27, 2012 at 3:06 PM

    CAVANI IS WORLD CLASS WE SHOULD SNAP HIM UP BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES. WE ALSO NEED ANOTHER STRIKER TO COMPETE WITH SAUREZ AND CAVANI IF WE GET HIM. SELL CARROLL,ADAM,DOWNING,J.COLE,CARRAGHER.

    WE DESPRATLY NEED A WORLD CLASS CENTRE HALF AND SOME DECENT WINGERS RIGHT AND LEFT. COME ON KING KENNY SORT IT OUT. IN KENNY WE TRUST. YNWA.

    January 27, 2012 at 3:12 PM

    Ok. Not a Liverpool or Napoli fan, but big follower of Italian football so I know whereof I speak.

    This is not, repeat not, going to happen. Note the complete lack of evidence in the article.

    Napoli are a better (by far) side than Liverpool and are still in the Champs League. Liverpool can’t out bid Madrid/City et al for the best striker in Europe (Van Persie apart, perhaps). Cavani will leave in June for Real. Liverpool have no hope.

    Well, you have Carroll. If that counts as hope.

  45. jay

    January 27, 2012 at 3:13 PM

    Cavani would be available in the summer everyone forgets liverpool are still regarded highly in the world thats what attracted suarez bellamy an previous players, we have the buying power for a move like this, to criticise liverpools play is also rubbish as weve completed most passes and hve created the second most chanches in the league, this shows one or two things missing e.g. a striker to pair with suarez or a silver/mata type of player. Cavni is achieveable as Man City, Chelsea have already said they dont need him.

    As for liverpool fans naming names like Hazzard he is already spoken for by two many big name teams where liverpool cant offer him champions league football or 200,000 a week

    Because of Luis Suarez, Sebastian Coates came to Liverpool. Because of Luis Suarez, Cavani will come to Liverpool! It’s a done deal!!!

    Max how do you get LFC to be a bad team? #Who is your team? I bet you we are more decorated than them, but it don’t matter anyway you will see LFC, not next year like everyone is saying but this year. This EPL is going to take so many turns and be such a roller coaster ride. Hold on tight.

  50. will

    January 27, 2012 at 5:25 PM

    Oh yeah and max please remember we have money to that is within the new guidelines. We generated around 300 million pound so that is added to the already fat piggy bank, don’t be fooled.

    January 27, 2012 at 5:31 PM

    I am noticing people coming on this site and saying things off the top of their heads in regards to football and how much they know about the sport, but how much do you really know when you suddenly think Napoli is better than Liverpool. Another thing you “football fans” need to realise Napoli had bought a striker prior to all this news coming out so lets see LFC have money and Suarez, if one doesn’t work the other will. Christian Ericksen, cry your eyes out. Please no bandwagonists please!!!!!!!!!

    January 27, 2012 at 6:29 PM

    Whoever has the most money is usually top dog. Every dog has it’s day. Liverpool are just another dog n should be grateful Mr Dowd tossed them a bone. Enjoy.

  53. road77

    January 27, 2012 at 6:45 PM

    EPIC FAIL. Cavani would leave Napoli only for Real Madrid, Barca or ManUtd. No way for the others…and his price is far away from 30ml

  54. dave

    January 27, 2012 at 7:29 PM

    Real Madrid n Barca maybe, but not Man Utd they too used to be a top dog but these days they are just hoping Liverpool will throw them a bone.

  55. James

    January 27, 2012 at 8:43 PM

    Suarez and cavani would be an amazing partnership, but i somehow don’t see this happening.
    I think he would come to us, but perhaps it’l be in the summer, he’s in the champions league with napoli.
    Chance of being in the same team as suarez and coates would be a big incentive for him.

  56. Shaun t

    January 27, 2012 at 8:46 PM

    To you all Liverpool have the money and the history to make this happen if Jenny wants him, as for the new lads all are doing ok in a year we have gone from a shambles to a squad with depth and some good quality

  58. luke

    January 27, 2012 at 8:48 PM

    It will be the move of the season if we sign him i recon if we do we will finish about 4 or 3 witch would be outstanding because we will be in the champions league as well as being in the carlin cup finel
    COME ON KENNY PLEASE PLEASE SIGN HIM

  59. Vegard

    January 27, 2012 at 10:23 PM

    I have no idea why, but I’d love to see King Kenny play a 4-3-1-2 formation with The same defence, Joao Moutinho as defensive midfielder with Henderson and Downing on the sides, Gerrard to provide the ball to Cavani/Suarez. ^^

    January 27, 2012 at 11:39 PM

    Some hilariously deluded liverpool fans on here. Cavani to Liverpool? Dream on. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Daglish has brought far too many average players and you are already 7 points away from 4th spot – you won’t be in the Champions League next season. Napoli have a far better side than Liverpool right now – there is no chance he would leave while they are still in the CL, and Hamsik/Cavani/Levezzi is one of the most lethal attacks in the world. If Cavani leaves it will be in the summer, to one of the elite super-rich clubs – very possibly Man City.

    Also, to the liverpool fans saying players would choose Liverpool over Man City – get real. I’m not a fan of Man City either, but open your eyes. They are top of the league, have one of the best squads in the world, have unlimited funds to pay for transfers and wages – they are only going to get better, and will be regulars in the Champions League for years to come.

  62. saga

    January 28, 2012 at 5:21 AM

    I wud like to point out a few things
    Cavani is to good a player to be sold for 30m
    Chelsea Manu Manc Real Barca Ac milan nd Inter milan juventus…allof them already have highly paid good strikers whether musfiring(torres) or nt if u take uefa financial fair play rules into account all these big teams will hv to think before paying another player buckets of money therefore liverpool hv chances(slim) of buying him….
    Finally just as a thought…kenny won premier league titles both for blackburn nd liverpool with predominantly british or scottish players…so lets wait nd keep ur fingers crossed

  63. Jimmymck

    January 28, 2012 at 9:36 AM

    Man City have won nothing so cannot claim tO be a big club. If their fans think the premier league title is in the bag they should read some history and see how often teams have had a bigger lead at this stage of the season and not won it. I predict LFC won’t be the only side to take points from them over tge next few weeks as they are missing key defensive players. I see no reason to ridicule a cavani to LFC move. Suarez is his international strike partner and LFC are a big club who finally have owners with plenty of money.

  64. liverpoolfc1025

    January 28, 2012 at 4:27 PM

    I just hope he does come.

    Reina
    Johnson Skrtel Agger Enrique
    Bellamy Gerrard Lucas Downing
    Suarez
    Cavani

    Subs: Doni Carragher Coates Kelly Maxi Adam Kuyt and maybe some new signings

    We should put Carroll and Henderson to a npower championship team so they can mature there like Beckham did.

    only team ive seen batter liverpool this season is tottenham thats because a silly mistake and a couple of sending offs , kenny will make 1 or 2 really good signings in summer which will hopefully resuly it taking our chances = more goals = top 4 for sure , striker , winger , and a defensive midfielder players id like to see , to pair with suarez CAVANI , on the wing Hazard or Erikson , and maybe bring back Mascherano and well be a force , iff not masca then get that defensive midfielder from porto , he throws is challanges and breaks up attacks for a laugh !!

Liverpool target Jadon Sancho ‘looking to leave’ Borussia Dortmund

Published

on

England star Jadon Sancho wants to leave Borussia Dortmund next summer, according to the Daily Mail.

This development comes as the 19-year-old has endured a rocky time of late in Germany.

In October he was fined £86,000, dropped for their crucial match against Borussia Monchengladbach, and made to train alone after he returned late from international duty with England.

Ahead of that match versus Monchengladbach, Dortmund manager Lucien Favre said his player “still has a lot to learn.”

And last weekend Sancho’s relationship with his manager took a further turn for the worse, as he was embarrassingly substituted after just 36 minutes in defeat to rivals Bayern Munich.

Favre confirmed that Sancho’s premature exit from the match was not injury related.

“He was not injured, he trained yesterday,” Favre told reporters.

“I had to go on what I was seeing and, to be honest, it was not good enough.”

Europe’s biggest clubs, such as PSG, Real Madrid and Manchester United, are reported to be circling as a result.

Liverpool, too, are thought to hold a strong interest in Sancho.

In February, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed that he was interested in the player when he left Manchester City in 2017, but felt a deal between the English rivals would have proved impossible.

“We are not blind – we saw him, we liked him, and then we think ‘Can we get him?’ No,” Klopp said.

“English clubs don’t sell to other English clubs.”

Ex-Germany and Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann recently backed his former club’s interest up:

“What I hear is that Liverpool have great interest,” Hamann told Sky Germany.

“I would imagine that next summer they could become one of the bigger interested parties.

“He’s from Manchester City and I do not know if he would come back again, and it’s a thing for Manchester United, too, if they’ve ever been at the rivals.”

It certainly appears that the current Premier League leaders have a winger high on their wish list, as we reported yesterday their possible interest in Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser, as per talkSPORT.

It’s fair to say, though, that Sancho would be a considerably higher-profile and more expensive signing than the Scot should he arrive at Anfield.

Despite his recent troubles, the explosive England international has registered an impressive three goals and five assists in eight Bundesliga starts this campaign.

He is expected to start in tonight’s European Championship qualifier against Montenegro after Raheem Sterling was dropped for his ‘disturbance in a private team area’ with Joe Gomez.

Arsenal monitoring £34m rated Juventus defender Merih Demiral for a potential move in January

Published

on

Arsenal are monitoring the situation of Juventus defender Merih Demiral following his lack of playing time under manager Maurizio Sarri.

The Turkish international joined the Old Lady in the summer but has struggled to live up to his potential thus far, causing him to slide down the pecking order of Juve’s defence.

The 21-year-old has only played one match for Juventus following his move from Sassuolo but has hugely impressed in the international stage, helping his country stay ahead of world champions France in the race for qualification for the European championships.

Unai Emery’s outfit currently sit 6th in the Premier League due to their defensive woes so far this season. The Gunners have the joint-second worst defence in the top half of the table, having already conceded 17 goals in just 12 games leaving them with a -1 goal difference.

Therefore, the Spanish coach has been under immense criticism and a signing of the calibre of Demiral in January could help ease the pressure of the former Sevilla manager and help turn Arsenal’s form around.

Emery is currently the second favourite to be sacked with the bookies setting his odds of leaving at 9/2 with only Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhutl having shorter odds.

A defender is one of the major weaknesses in the Gunners’ squad but Demiral will certainly not be cheap considering his huge upside.

A mark of £34m has been reported as the asking price, which is double that of what Juventus signed him for in the summer. Juve’s Italian rivals AC Milan were also monitoring the defender’s situation but scoffed at the asking price leaving Arsenal as favourites to sign Demiral.

Manchester United have also reportedly had interest in the youngster and with their defensive woes as well, the Red Devils could well be in with a shot to land the Turkish international. Atletico Madrid have also got their eye on the centre-back.

Reports have suggested that Demiral would be open to a move to either England or Spain, but would like to establish his squad status with former Chelsea manager Sarri.

Demiral showcased his obvious talent during his short stint at Sassuolo but the arrival of teenage sensation Matthijs de Ligt has meant that the defender has not gotten the opportunity to feature as often as he would like.

Juventus are heavily stacked in defence with the likes of Georgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, Daniele Rugani and Emre Can all capable of playing centre-back.

Therefore a move to Arsenal could benefit all parties as Juve would be able to cash in for a squad player and the Gunners would be able to have a young defender that could help solidify their defence.

Liverpool linked with move for Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser

Published

on

Liverpool have been linked with a surprise January transfer window move for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser.

The 25-year-old is out of contract next summer and could therefore be available at a cut-price free to bolster the Reds’ forward options.

TalkSPORT’s south coast correspondent Alex Crook broke the news on the radio station’s Drivetime show, revealing:

“My understanding is Jurgen Klopp is lining up a surprise move for Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser.

“He is out of contract next summer and that means effectively Bournemouth will have to sell him in January.

“If you had sold him last summer you might have been talking about the £20-25million mark, but now with his contract running out you might talking around the £10-15m mark.”

Such a low fee in today’s market for a player with more Premier League assists than any other player since the start of the 2018-19 season could represent a great deal for the current league leaders.

It seems unlikely Fraser would get in Liverpool’s first XI ahead of last season’s golden-boot sharers Sadio Mané or Mohamed Salah, but with Xherdan Shaqiri injured and seemingly out of favour, and Divock Origi arguably more comfortable as a central striker, there are definitely minutes to be had for another wide option.

More explosive and direct in terms of dribbling with the ball than Shaqiri, Fraser could provide Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp with the option to utilise the 4-2-3-1 system his side deployed for a spell last campaign, with Mané or Salah starting from a more central area alongside Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool fans in particular will remember the impact Fraser can have off the bench, too, after he scored one and created two more in a memorable 4-3 victory for Bournemouth against the Reds in December 2016, despite only entering the pitch as a 55th minute substitute.

The Scotland winger, however, hasn’t hit the heights of last season thus far, having spent the early weeks of the campaign on the bench.

He recently told the Bournemouth Echo that his period on the bench was “not nice and obviously frustrating,” but he has since regained his place in the side, assisting Harry Wilson, who is on loan from Liverpool, for a nicely-worked goal against Newcastle at the weekend.

TalkSPORT’s Crook not mention whether Wilson, who has proved a hit on the south coast with four league goals already this campaign, could be used as part of any potential deal.

This latest transfer development could come as a blow to Arsenal in particular, who had been more strongly linked to the player since the summer.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this one develops over the coming months.
