Ex-Liverpool star Murphy advises Wilson to leave

Former Liverpool star Danny Murphy has advised Harry Wilson to leave Anfield. The 22-year-old has been given a chance to impress Jurgen Klopp over preseason after an impressive loan spell with Derby County. But with the Reds already possessing an abundance of attacking talent, Murphy thinks Wilson should continue his career elsewhere. Murphy told bwin: "I can't see Wilson getting the playing time he wants at Liverpooland it's probably time for him to move on.

Arsenal legend Seaman urges Tierney over Zaha

Arsenal legend David Seaman believes the club should prioritise the signing of Kieran Tierney over Wilfried Zaha.

The former Gunners goalkeeper told football.london: "Yes, Zaha is a good player who could do well for the club, and yes I know I would say as a former goalkeeper that the defence is the first place to look at in terms of signing new players - but the simple fact is that the backline needs strengthening. "It's no good having the best players in the world up front if you don't have a solid defence. "It's no ...

The former Reds striker is not convinced that the Brazil international is required back at Anfield, with others having stepped up in his absence Liverpool “haven’t missed” Philippe Coutinho and have no need to bring him back, says Dean Saunders, with the Reds having done a “good deal” with Barcelona that has allowed them to improve without a Brazilian playmaker. Back in the winter transfer window of 2018, the Reds reluctantly agreed to offload a talented South American to Camp Nou. His sale brought a long-running saga to a close and allowed Jurgen Klopp to dip into the market with the funds generated from a big-money deal.
