Midfielder on radar

Liverpool have apparently been keeping tabs on Wolves’ midfielder Matheus Nunes for a while now. That’s according to reporter Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, who claims they have been ‘following’ him for months, even before his move to the Premier League. He has caught the eye at Molinuex since his summer switch from Sporting Lisbon.

World Cup winner’s stance

Brighton and Hove Albion’s Alexis MacAllister, who has been linked with the Reds, has revealed his stance on his immediate future. The World Cup winner with Argentina has admitted he is ‘happy’ where he is at the moment and has said, as per BBC Sport: “I feel really good with this club and my team-mates, and everyone who works her. I try not to read too much. I always say I am really happy here and I don’t have any rush to leave. I am focused on the next game with this club.”

Loan latest

Blackpool boss Michael Appleton is reluctant to let any of his loanees leave this month. Liverpool defender Rhys Williams is currently on loan at the Championship side and is due to spend the rest of the campaign there. His manager has told Lancashire Live: “I’m at a point now where I’m more than comfortable having more than five loans, especially with our injury history. I think we’ve gone beyond worrying about having more than five and that being a risk. If anything, it’s almost the opposite and making sure if one or two injuries do happen we remain as strong as we possibly can.”
