No encouragement from Newcastle kingpin over Liverpool transfer talk

Liverpool transfer target Jamaal Lascelles has given no indication he is ready to leave “massive” Newcastle United.

The England hopeful is on Jurgen Klopp’s wanted list, according to The Independent with Liverpool chasing a new centre-back.

Lascelles is one of two defensive targets on Klopp’s wanted list with Burnley’s James Tarkowski the other name in the frame as the Champions League finalists look for a long-term partner for Virgil van Dijk.

Toon skipper Lascelles though has not entertained the latest talk though, although it’s not clear just when the Newcastle Chronicle obtained the thoughts from the former Nottingham Forest man.

“This is the happiest I’ve been,” Lascelles told The Chronicle. “I’m playing week in, week out. And I’m the captain here, the fans love me, and I’ve got a good relationship with them because I love them. And we’re doing well, too.

“I’m very happy here. You hear things, you hear rumours and stuff, but I’m a young player and I need to be playing football at a good club – and that’s what this is.

“Overall it’s been an unreal season as far as I’m concerned, both for me personally, and more importantly for the club.”

Lascelles was linked with a £30million move to Chelsea in March by the Daily Mirrorwhile earlier this month the same tabloid claimed Everton were lining up a £25million move for the player, who was also understood to have been watched by Tottenham.

The centre-back, who made 35 appearances this season, seems more than happy on Tyneside with The Chronicle detailing a “beaming smile” when asked about all the speculation.

“This is the happiest I’ve been,” Lascelles added.

“I’m playing week in, week out. And I’m the captain here, the fans love me, and I’ve got a good relationship with them because I love them. And we’re doing well, too.

“I’m very happy here. You hear things, you hear rumours and stuff, but I’m a young player and I need to be playing football at a good club – and that’s what this is.

“Overall it’s been an unreal season as far as I’m concerned, both for me personally, and more importantly for the club.

“This is the right club for me at the right time We have a huge fanbase, an amazing manager, and this club is massive. It has so much history.

“As captain, I want to see how far we can go – and potentially take it back to where it belongs.”

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 LOOKING TO MAKE TRANSFER STATEMENT

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.

Klopp out to beef up Liverpool defence with Prem-based duo

James Tarkowski and Jamaal Lascelles are two of the surprise names on Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool transfer list, a report has revealed.

Despite spending £75million on Virgil van Dijk in January, Klopp wants to add another nameto his ranks and beef up his options at the centre of defence.

Dejan Lovren, who looks set to start the Champions League final on Saturday, only signed a new contract at Liverpool in April, but rather than replacing the former Saints man, Klopp wants more depth to his squad.

And The Independent claims that Burnley’s Tarkowski, 25, and Newcastle’s Lascelles, 24, are under consideration this summer.

The report suggests Klopp, who added four signings last summer, is chasing “three to four players in the close-season window”.

That includes a goalkeeper, whom the paper believes will be Jack Butland, another attacker, but centre-half is a priority position and one of Tarkowski or Lascelles will be pursued, with the duo believed to be valued at around £35million apiece.

Tarkowksi, who has made 33 appearances for the Clarets, helping them into seventh-placed finish, has been named on the standby list for England’s World Cup squad.

Lascelles has been equally as impressive, helping Newcastle survive in the top flight and only signed a new contract until 2023 last October.

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.
