Your Liverpool morning headlines as a former Reds defender refused to move while Jurgen Klopp has been given transfer advise.
Liverpool defender ‘treated as dumbest of the dumb’ refused to move for transfer fee
“I had five great years with Liverpool, followed by six bad months.”
For five seasons, Stephane Henchoz was a mainstay in Liverpool’s backline. Signed from Blackburn Rovers in a £3.5m deal from Blackburn Rovers in the summer of 1999, he quickly became a key player for the Reds, forging a famous centre-back partnership with Sami Hyypia as they won the treble and qualified for the Champions League under Gerard Houllier.
Having helped Liverpool forge one of the meanest defences in England, it was no coincidence that Liverpool’s form under the Frenchman faltered when the Switzerland international started to endure prolonged periods on the sidelines through injury.
Jurgen Klopp told to replace Sadio Mane at Liverpool with £47.5m Chelsea forward
Liverpool should sign a surprise replacement for Sadio Mane in Chelsea forward Timo Werner, according to a former Premier League defender.
Werner has seen his game time limited at Stamford Bridge since his £47.5m transfer from RB Leipzig two years ago and his future is seemingly up in the air. The Germany international had been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool before he joined Chelsea.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has already dipped into the transfer market to strengthen his attacking options this summer by securing the signing of Darwin Nunez from Benfica for a fee that could reach a club-record £85m if add-ons are met. It would seem extremely unlikely, then, that he would be considering a bid for Werner.
