Happy Toosday FOARites!
Couple of stories here and there which tickled my interest today, so here we go.
Dominic Solanke on-target for the U23’s against Everton
Dominic Solanke was on target for the Reds as they beat Everton 3-1 in the under-23 ‘mini derby’. He scored Liverpool’s opener, netting from the penalty spot.
It was another confidence booster for the 20-year-old striker who has failed to convert his chances for the first team.
Solanke has long been prolific at youth team level but he is struggling to make the step up. He drew a blank against Everton’s first team when they recently met and he got the start.
Yet, he tends to score every single time he steps down to the U23s.
Here’s the big question…
Does Dominic Solanke have what it takes to make the grade in the Senior team?
Monaco will consider bids for Arsenal target Thomas Lemar
And in news which surprises NO-ONE…AS Monaco president Vadim Vasilyev all but admitted over this past weekend that Thomas Lemar will be available to clubs who can afford his price tag. Arsenal failed in a £92 million Deadline Day transfer last August, and Arsene Wenger stated shortly after the summer window closed that he would return again to Monaco this summer with more bids for Lemar.
Seeing how he will probably cost in excess of £100+M in the Summer, is this really the kind trigger which needs pulling by Liverpool?
Or is still a possibility Klopp desires Lemar in spite of Oxlade-Chamberlain’s progression this season (and also as backup on the wings from Mo and Mane) – £100+M backup!
Fat Mido says that Mo Salah is ready to make the jump to Real Madrid
And the dumbass comments don’t end there!
I don’t know who this “The_Dar” fella is…but he is hella funny!
Have a great rest of the day Reds!!!
