Liverpool Transfer News Roundup: Reds star on Real Madrid’s transfer radar, midfielder could snub new contract offer, and more

After a resounding 3-0 EFL Cup win against Norwich City, Liverpool will look to continue their impressive form in the Premier League when they face Brentford on Saturday.

The Reds have key fixtures in the future. After their match against Brentford, they will travel to Porto to play Matchday 2 in the Champions League.

Here are the latest Liverpool news and rumours, as of September 23, 20,21.

Real Madrid identify Liverpool star as a potential signing in 2022

According to Defensa Central, Real Madrid are on the lookout for a new right-back and have put Trent Alexander-Arnold on their transfer radar.

The Liverpool fullback is among a group that includes Reece James from Chelsea and Youcef Atal from Nice.

Alexander-Arnold signed a long-term contract last week that will keep him at Anfield through 2025. It remains to be seen how far Real Madrid will go in order to sign him.

The Reds are unlikely to entertain any outstanding bid for the fullback, who is the club’s creator-in chief and a future captain.

Jürgen Klopp attracting interest from Barcelona

Barcelona are in turmoil at the moment, and Ronald Koeman’s future is certainly not secure. The Dutchman is not under a long-term contract and may struggle to stay with the club until the end.

Results have not been good for the Blaugrana, who are now considering Jürgen Klopp as an alternative should they decide to sack Koeman, as per El Nacional.

🥈· Jurgen Klopp is on a 3 man shortlist to replace Ronald Koeman at Barcelona. Joan Laporta is the first to choose Klopp to replace the current Barca manager. Erik ten Hag and Xavi are also included on the shortlist.

Eric ten Haag and Xavi are also being considered, but it remains to be seen if they will all be keen, considering the mess Barcelona are in right now.

Klopp has a contract with Liverpool until 2024 so it is unlikely that the German will leave anytime soon. After his stint with the Reds ends, he will likely take a break.

Christian Falk has claimed that Keita will snub Liverpool’s contract offer unless he is offered a more prominent first-team role.

Keta must remain injury-free and be more consistent to be able to play more frequently. The club’s midfielder has managed so far to stay fit, which bodes well.
