 Deal Almost Done Liverpool  have it in mind of signing a  succesfully midfieder klopp’s smile’s……….

The forward is set to depart the club after eight years.

Liverpool star Roberto Firmino is reportedly a target for the reigning European champions Real Madrid, among multiple other clubs according to the latest reports.

Firmino, 31, is set to depart the club after eight years at Anfield and will be a free agent at the end of the current season.

Despite being allowed to leave Liverpool, Firmino has plenty left still to offer, especially considering he’s produced 12 goals and five assists across this season as a back-up forward as the signings of Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo have seen the Brazilian’s game-time drastically reduced.

He has a wealth of experience for club and country and could go onto sign for one of a number of clubs including Real Madrid, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that ‘4-5 clubs’ are in the race to sign Firmino, but no negotiations have started, with just internal discussions about the player being conducted so far.

Despite the fact that Karim Benzema is still scoring at a regular rate (the Frenchman has scored 30 in all competitions this year) he is now 35 and Real don’t currently have a back-up forward for that central role.

His signing could allow the Benzema to be rested at a more regular rate which can only be a bonus at this stage of his career.

Firmino could arrive as a perfect alternative to Benzema and the Brazilian’s link-up and deft touch would allow the likes of Rodryo and Vinicius Junior to thrive, in a league that isn’t as competitive as the Premier League.

His Champions League experience would be key as well, having reached three finals during eight years on Merseyside.

Since 2015, Firmino has played 361 games since joining from Hoffenheim, scoring 110 goals and registering 79 assists during that time.

His integral role as Jurgen Klopp’s focal point in their famed front-three with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will never be forgotten on Merseyside and the forward has been a relevation since arriving in England.


Liverpool make move for “incredible” £50m PL “hero”, just imagine him & Van Dijk – opinion

The Wolves midfielder is as robust as they come…

Liverpool are in pursuit of Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves, and are now believed to have made their move to tie up a deal for the Portuguese ace.

What’s the latest on Ruben Neves to Liverpool?

That’s according to Football Insider, who claim that the Old Gold are set to accept a £50m bid for their most coveted asset with just one year remaining on his current deal and no resolution in sight.

The report continues to claim that the Reds have requested to be kept informed about potential developments in the situation, and with the 26-year-old completing an emotional lap of honour after his final home game of the term against Everton it appears that a departure is forthcoming.

Barcelona are also interested, with Spanish sources previously indicating that La Blaugrana had the lead in the race, but Ansu Fati’s refusal to be included as a makeweight in a prospective transfer has left Liverpool ready to pounce.

How good is Ruben Neves?

Liverpool will target several midfielders capable of making a marked improvement on Jurgen Klopp’s squad this summer, with Europa League football the destination after failing to qualify for the top four.

James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all departing at the end of their contracts, while captain Jordan Henderson and pass master Thiago Alcantara are both 32, with the captain 33 in one month’s time.

The “incredible” Neves – as lauded by former teammate Hugo Bueno – is at the peak of his powers right now and has been the centrepiece of Wolves’ success since rising from the Championship and reaching a Europa League quarter-final, forging 252 appearances, scoring 30 goals and providing 13 assists.

The 39-cap machine has been robust and dynamic from his conducting role this term, which is evidenced by his average Sofascore rating of 7.26, scoring six goals from 34 outings, completing 83% of his passes, averaging 0.9 key passes per game and making 2.3 tackles, 2.4 clearances and 1.5 interceptions each match.

Having been a “hero” for his side during his time at Molineux, as lauded by journalist Matt Maher, the midfield titan would provide composure and steel to the Liverpool centre, bolstering the ranks with his tenacious, unflinching demeanour on the pitch.

His arrival would only serve to enhance the endeavours of centre-back Virgil van Dijk, who has been criticised for some of his performances this season amid Liverpool’s strife.

The club’s issues this season have largely been a product of negligence on the transfer market over the past several years, with Thiago the only senior midfield signing since 2018, and for all the Spaniard’s prowess with the ball, there is a belief that he has “slowed” the Reds down with his distinctive style of play – as per club legend John Barnes – with his injury record also less than admirable.

Van Djik has consequently suffered from the absence of control and energy in the midfield this term, with one journalist branding him “nonchalant”.

While the Dutch titan is not the most tackle-happy centre-back in the Premier League – he ranks among the bottom 4% of centre-backs across Europe’s top five leagues over the past year for tackles per 90 – this is largely a product of his commanding style of play and efficacy in timing his defensive movements to inhibit opposing attacks.

Equally, the former Southampton man is also adept at sweeping away the danger when it presents itself, as he has made 4.2 clearances on average per game in the Premier League this term and won 70% of his contested duels.

A sturdy conductor would not only reignite the Reds midfield but serve as a buffer for the back four, and with Van Dijk not quite so imperious anymore, renewed vitality in the mould of Neves would only serve to enhance his side’s prospects of success next season and beyond.
