Reds reach Bissouma 'agreement'

Liverpool have reportedly reached an 'agreement' to sign Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma in the January transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp's side were linked with the Malian midfielder during the summer, but a transfer failed to materialise as he remained put at Brighton.

But according to Fichajes, the 25-year-old will cost in the region of £30million if Liverpool successfully complete the deal.

Muller tipped to become next Jurgen Klopp

Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has been backed to become the next Jurgen Klopp.

It's likely to be a few years yet until Muller explores the possibility of becoming a football coach, but former Germany international Mario Gomez sees this as a likely next route.

“I’m a big fan of Jürgen Klopp,” Gomez told AbendZeitung.

“Regardless of whether I’ve seen him as an expert on television or as an opposing coach on the sidelines: Jürgen Klopp is simply an incredible catcher of people who you always enjoy listening to.

“I once compared that to Thomas Müller. That’s why I also believe that Thomas will be Klopp’s successor – whatever he will do after his active career. But Thomas will take over the Klopp role."

Richards shows sympathy for Alexander-Arnold

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards has admitted he felt sorry for Trent Alexander-Arnold during Liverpool's 3-3 draw with Brentford.

The Bees' final two goals in the game came from playing a ball towards the back post for Alexander-Arnold to clear, with Brenford bodies surrounding him.

The Reds' defender received little cover during the game and Richards felt the 22-year-old should have been given more support.

Speaking on BBC's Match of the Day, he said: “I felt a little bit sorry for Alexander-Arnold on the right-hand side.

“Normally we have someone like Fabinho in there. You get him a cross. He really did well trying to keep inside within the post, his positioning was right, but when you have two or three, very, very difficult.”

Klopp on Mo milestone

Jurgen Klopp recognised Mohamed Salah could well have scored a second goal yesterday against Brentford.

The Egyptian forward scored his 100th Premier League goal for the Reds in the 3-3 draw with the Bees, as Thomas Frank's side battled back twice to earn a point.

Speaking after the game, Klopp told Sky Sports: "Mo would’ve liked 101 today but he will. Again, so many good moments makes it strange to analyse moments football-wise against a really tricky set-up as well.

"The way they defend is not easy to play against but we did really well but we cannot defend the goalie when he chips the ball then we have to defend first and second balls better and that was our problem tonight."
