Paper Talk: Liverpool plan ambitious £140m triple swoop; Arsenal chase defensive man mountain

Liverpool have been linked with a triple swoop for ¬£140m worth of talent, while Arsenal hope to fix their defensive woes by swooping for Porto’s defensive lynchpin, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.



Liverpool are attempting an audacious swoop for three players they hope will further strengthen their new-found defensive resolve.

The Reds finished the season with the fourth-best defensive record in the Premier League in 2017/18, but had the season started 10 matches in, Liverpool would have had the best.

Their new-found defensive steel was hugely helped along by the £75m January arrival of Virgil van Dijk, but Jurgen Klopp knows he will need to further strengthen his backline if the club are to mount a push for the Premier League title next season.

As such, the Daily Mirror reckons Liverpool are now ready to make AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma their new No 1 goalkeeper target and will spend up to £70million to land the young Italian.

A clause in Donnarumma’s contract allows him to leave Milan after they failed to qualify for the Champions League and Klopp believes the goalkeeper is more obtainable than Alisson Becker at Roma.

Liverpool have also reportedly targeted swoops for Newcastle defenders Jamaal Lascelles and James Tarkowski, according to the Independent.

The duo are rated at around £35million apiece and are seen as cover and competition for both Van Dijk and, more likely, Dejan Lovren.

Although Liverpool would unlikely sign both, the addition of all three players, including Donnarumma, the papers seem to think the triple deal would set the Champions League finalists back a cool £140m.

Premier League prize money: Man Utd earn more than champions City

The final figures given to Premier League clubs in prize money, TV fees and central commercial deals have been released, with Manchester United earning marginally more than Manchester City.

Both Manchester clubs earned a little under £150m, with all clubs receiving a minimum of £87.9m from TV deals alone.

That means West Brom received over £94m from the Premier League despite ending the season rock bottom of the division.

The figures have also been released for parachute payments to relegated clubs, with Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Hull all receiving over £41.5m at the end of this season.

Cardiff will receive their final parachute payment of £16.5m before being promoted back to the Premier League, where they could be joined by Fulham.

Southgate explains selections as England name youthful World Cup squad

England manager Gareth Southgate has included one or two surprise names in his 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.

The biggest shock is probably the inclusion of Liverpool’s teenage right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has enjoyed a brilliant breakthrough season with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Man City’s versatile star Fabian Delph is also included, despite being yet to feature in a squad under Southgate.

Tottenham defender Danny Rose and Manchester United wing-back Ashley Young are also included, alongside Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

There were, however, no places for Joe Hart, Adam Lallana and Jack Wilshere.

Explaining his 23-man selection, Southgate said: “I believe this is an England squad we can feel excited about. I have a mix of youth and experience and I feel the balance of the squad is good, in terms of its character and in terms of its positional balance.

“We have a lot of energy and athleticism in the team, but players that are equally comfortable in possession of the ball.

“The style of play we’ve been looking to develop has been over months, not just the last few weeks.

“The team are improving – we want to continue that momentum in our friendlies and into the World Cup.”

England announced their 23-man squad with the video, below:

Quartet linked as star youngster is tipped for shock Man Utd exit

Scott McTominay will reportedly be allowed to leave Manchester United this summer – if Jose Mourinho lands his preferred top two central midfield targets.

McTominay, 21, has come through United’s academy to become a regular of Mourinho’s first-team squad and has made 23 appearances in all competitions this season.

However, he could find himself squeezed out of the picture next season, with Mourinho plotting the arrival of two big-name arrivals in his central midfield area.

Mourinho is thought to targeted a summer swoop for Shakhtar Donestsk star Fred – with talks set to be well down the line with the ¬£40m-rated Brazilian – while Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic remains the United manager’s No 1 choice to replace the retired Michael Carrick in midfield.

With Marouane Fellaini now expected to stay at Old Trafford after a change of heart and with Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba other options through the centre, it means McTominay could reportedly be allowed to leave the club on a season-long loan.

It’s reported that United have already fielded a number of loan enquiries for the midfielder – the club’s inaugural Manager‚Äôs Player of the Year winner – with both Burnley, Wolves, Watford and Huddersfield said to be among those keen.

United will reassure McTominay he still has a long-term future at the club before sending him out on loan, but having been heartened by the progress Timothy Fosu-Mensah has made at Crystal Palace, believe he too could reap similar benefits.
