Liverpool fans will be hoping that the international break doesn’t bring about any fatal injuries as it could have a massive impact on their title push. Of course, with Spurs to come once the Premier League season gets back underway there’s a lot of pressure on the Liverpool players to deliver.
If the Reds can overcome the challenges of Chelsea and Spurs they’ll find themselves in a very commanding position with a number of easier fixtures to come, including the likes of Cardiff City and Huddersfield.
Although, it appears as if the Reds are giving the summer transfer window some attention at this moment in time, as according to Bild correspondent Christian Falk (who is a reliable journalist) on his personal Twitter account, Liverpool are still interested in signing Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Chelsea youngster hasn’t exactly enjoyed many minutes on the field in the current campaign as Maurizio Sarri has adopted a policy that doesn’t really promote the younger players. So, it would make sense for the Englishman to weigh up his options ahead of the summer, with a move to Anfield providing him with more of an opportunity.
Although, the 18-year-old’s potential arrival could put one particular Liverpool player’s future in doubt.
Xherdan Shaqiri has been key for the Reds in the current campaign, with arguably his most memorable match coming against Man United at Anfield as he grabbed a brace. But, he’s never been able to nail down a permanent spot due to the Reds’ immovable front three, and Hudson-Odoi’s arrival certainly wouldn’t help his cause.
Indeed, the Switzerland international has had to settle for being an unused substitute in Liverpool’s last four Premier League fixtures and may not be used much from here on in, so Hudson-Odoi moving to Merseyside could force Shaqiri out of Anfield in the summer transfer window as he’d receive even less minutes next season.
