Livermore heading for West Brom transfer

Hull midfielder Jake Livermore is expected to join West Brom in the next 24 hours after the two clubs agreed a fee of around £10million.

The 27-year-old is heading for The Hawthorns to iron out personal terms and will undergo a medical ahead of a proposed transfer.

Livermore, who has provisionally agreed personal terms with the Baggies, could be unveiled as a West Brom player as early as this evening.

Livermore has featured in every Premier League game this season but Marco Silva will allow the former Tottenham man to move on in order to fund his own recruitment drive.

Silva is hopeful of signing Norway right-back Omar Elabdellaoui, as well as at least two attackers before the end of the January window.

Livermore initially arriving at the KCOM Stadium on a season-long loan from Tottenham in August 2013 before he signed for £8million on a permanent deal in the summer of 2014.

Albion are also interested in Watford striker Odion Ighalo, although they are yet to make a formal offer.

Ighalo, who has scored just twice in 19 games this season, is on Pulis’ radar but the Baggies are only likely to move for a striker if Saido Berahino leaves this month.

They are in talks with Stoke, who have previously offered £20million, over Berahino, who is out of contract at the end of the campaign.

Ighalo has been linked with a move to China and has struggled to recapture the form which saw him score 17 goals for the Hornets last term.

West Brom have money to spend this month, but are keen to avoid a late transfer scramble ahead of the deadline on January 31.

They made an offer of around £18million for Schneiderlin but he moved to Goodison Park in a deal worth £24million.

There was also interest in Jeff Schlupp, having had two bids rejected in the summer, but the Ghana international moved to Crystal Palace from Leicester for around £12million last week.

Albion had doubts over paying the fee having already had a £12million offer turned down last year.

Pulis has guided West Brom to eighth in the Premier League, but they were beaten 4-0 at Tottenham last weekend.

Quiz! How many of Belgium?s 2013 squad can you name?

With Yannick Carrasco in the news on Thursday morning, TEAMtalk thought we’d test your knowledge on Belgian football.

The Atletico Madrid star has been linked with an £86million move to Chelsea, and while his buy-out clause is a little extreme, it does emphasise just how good Belgian football has become in recent years.

TEAMtalk has linked up with Sporcle to bring you the quiz, which will test your knowledge to the limit.

Although 2013 was before Carrasco’s Belgium breakthrough, we’re asking you to name the 23 players who did make up their squad in 2013.

It’s certainly far harder than it sounds – especially when you’re up against the clock.

Paper Talk: Man Utd want 70m man to supply Griezmann; Carrisco link

Manchester United will spend £70million on a supply line for Antoine Griezmann, while Chelsea are hot on the trail of Yannick Carrasco, all in today’s papers.

 

UNITED LINE UP SILVA TO SUPPLY GRIEZMANN 

Manchester United are planning to make a £70million move for Monaco midfielder Bernardo Silva this summer, according to a report.

The 22-year-old is the man that Jose Mourinho wants to load the bullets for Antoine Griezmann, who is another summer target, report The Sun in an exclusive.

Real Madrid are also keen on the attacking midfielder and United face a battle to sign Silva, who is managed by the agent of Mourinho, Jorge Mendes.

“United already plan to land Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann at the end of the season in an £85m deal,” says the tabloid and they will also spend big on Silva.

He joined Monaco from Benfica for £14million deal after a loan-spell in the Principality. He can play across the midfield and has 4 goals and 4 assists this season.

The Portugal international joined Monaco from Benfica in January 2015 for £14million after a loan-spell in the Principality and is under contract until June 2020.

The playmaker can play across the midfield and has scored four goals and created four assists this season.

United were reportedly keeping an eye on Silva back in May 2016, according to Spanish title Super Deporte.

CHELSEA TARGET CARRASCO

 

Chelsea are among a number of clubs keen on Atletico Madrid star Yannick Carrasco, according to the Daily Star. 

The report claims Chelsea are interested the 23-year-old winger as are both Manchester giants, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

The forward only penned a new new Atletico deal in October though and is under contract with the club until 2022, but if fellow stars Antoine Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro move on then Belgium star Carrasco may also decide to depart.

Carrasco is believed to have an £86million buyout clause in his current contract.
