Though Manchester United’s loss to Arsenal meant their weekend slip up didn’t prove too costly, there’s little doubting the fact the resident Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are nervous about the Champions League.
While they remain in the driving seat as it stands, United still retain a chance of finishing in the top four this season and our Merseyside drinkers are hoping for an improvement next season.
So, they’ve not been delighted by reports from Goal. While they do link the Reds with a Serie A attacker, the Kopites in the bar are hoping defenders are Jurgen Klopp’s summer transfer priority.
They claim Roma forward Mo Salah is of interest at Anfield, following his fine form in the Italian capital. Despite a poor spell with Chelsea (though he won the Premier League), the Egyptian has notched 13 goals and registered 10 assists for I Giallorossi.
Liverpool are reportedly considering him as an option in order to improve their attacking line. While the attacking trident of Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino have looked devastating, the absence of any one of them this term has left the Reds a little light.
Roma, for their part, are not thought to want to lose such a key figure.
