Liverpool transfer news – Jonathan David future, Steven Gerrard talks, Roberto Firmino prediction

Liverpool broadcast news, rumours, gossip and speculation including updates on Roberto Firmino and Max Kilman as well as reactions to Bournemouth defeat

And to make matters worse, Tottenham Hotspur took advantage of the Reds’ slippage to consolidate their hold on fourth and last place in the Champions League.

Away from the action on the pitch, Roberto Firmino is set to leave Liverpool this summer, as is well documented. And now the interest in the Brazilian striker has also appeared in MLS.

At first it was claimed the Reds were ‘very impressed’ with Wolves defender Max Kilman.

Transfer the gossip aside, we’re also keeping you up to date with the latest news after Gary Lineker was brought in to withdraw from the BBC’s Match of the Day presentation last night. Matt Beard hails Liverpool’s ‘best’ signing after win over Tottenham

Matt Beard has been full of praise for signing Fuka Nagano in January after the midfielder helped Liverpool to an impressive comeback against Tottenham in the Women’s Super League.

The Reds fell behind thanks to Rosella Ayane’s 17th-minute goal before Emma Koivisto’s deflected shot brought it level at Prenton Park. Missy Bo Kearns then capitalized on Liverpool’s pressure by scoring the winning goal after 35 minutes.

However, it was Nagano’s composure in the penalty area that proved crucial in the build-up; The Japan international played a superb ball to Koivisto who brought the ball back in the way of Kearns. It was another example of Nagano’s superb pedigree, with Matt Beard once again gushing over the 24-year-old’s quality. “I thought Fuka was great for the second goal, the way she slowed it down and just let Emma through the right,” the Liverpool manager said. “(Leighanne) Robe said on the bus the other day that she was the best signing Liverpool Women had ever made and what she meant by that was her personality.”

Speaking of which, Liverpool are now the opposite of what they feared so much under Jurgen Klopp.

After Liverpool’s latest away defeat, the slick quips flew in jest with more than a shred of truth.

It has been claimed that Jurgen Klopp’s side have decided to show solidarity with Gary Lineker and his flashy colleagues at BBC Sport by ensuring there are no highlights from their 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth when a no-moderate Match of the Day later aired that evening. Gallows humor indeed. Apart from an offside goal, a missed penalty and a first-half clearance from the line, the dryly humorous point about Liverpool’s poor performance was well done on social media on Saturday afternoon.

The defeat was the eighth in a largely miserable league campaign which saw seven of them take to the streets. It was their worst escape from Anfield since 2010/11, when Roy Hodgson was put out of his misery mid-season and the Reds eventually recovered enough to finish sixth under Sir Kenny Dalglish.

A sad comeback of just 12 points from 13 away games has been the key factor in Liverpool’s struggles this season. For this reason, they are six behind the top four heading into mid-March. Klopp is well aware of that and said after Saturday’s game: “I’m worried, yes. I see it. I see it in European venues.”

Liverpool take big step towards WSL safety as Emma Koivisto shines against Tottenham

Liverpool took a big step towards Premier League survival with a 2-1 win over Tottenham in the Women’s Super League.

The Reds started the day eighth – two places and two points clear of their visitors – and entered the pitch at Prenton Park to recover from back-to-back defeats to Leicester and Arsenal. Spurs, meanwhile, went into Sunday’s match having lost their last eight games in the WSL, although Rehanne Skinner’s side beat Liverpool 1-0 in the reverse fixture in October.

Matt Beard made three midweek changes to the squad that lost at Meadow Park, with six of his senior players still sidelined with injuries. However, Spurs saw their attacking ranks boosted by the return of England striker Bethany, who had scored three goals in three appearances for the club before kick-off since moving from Chelsea to Brisbane Road in January.

Aldridge is willing to sell Salah

John Aldridge has admitted Mohamed Salah’s departure from Liverpool could be an option to consider this summer.

The Egyptian international failed to convert a penalty in the Reds’ 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth, a result which saw Tottenham Hotspur regain control of their Champions League run. In response to Salah’s failure in yesterday’s loss, ECHO columnist Aldridge raised the possibility of selling the 30-year-old to fund signings.

He told Sunday World: “Over the last few seasons Klopp’s side have had too much pace, power and desire to deal with these relegation strugglers. But all that has changed – and I’m looking at the language body of Mohamed Salah and there is something wrong.

Take his missed penalty out of the equation and he put on a performance that lacked passion – and I hate to write negative things about a player who is an all-time great Liverpool player. There may be some debate as to whether selling Salah this summer and using that money to reinvest in the team could be an option, but that idea can wait until the end of the season. From now on, Salah has to lead Liverpool as a senior striker, and he didn’t do that at Bournemouth.”
