Paper Talk: Exciting winger fuels talk of Liverpool move

A Liverpool attacking target has fuelled talk of a potential Anfield switch, while Tottenham could turn to Germany for Mauricio Pochettino’s replacement, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.

 

LIVERPOOL ATTACKING TARGET FUELS TALK OF MOVE

Liverpool transfer target Ryan Fraser has fuelled reports that he could be on his way to Liverpool in 2020.

Fraser joined the Cherries from Aberdeen in January 2013 and is the fourth longest-serving player at the club.

However, the 25-year-old has stalled on a contract extension this year and is set to leave Bournemouth when his contract expires in June.

Liverpool are known to be one of a number of the clubs monitoring the Scot’s situation, alongside Arsenal.

And both clubs will have been encouraged in their pursuit of the player following a recent interview he gave with the Daily Echo, which suggested he was unsettled on the South Coast.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to strengthen a forward line that already includes dynamic trio Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

But with Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana both being tipped to move on in the search for regular first-team football, Liverpool will be in need for new recruits and Fraser’s direct attacking style certainly fits the Merseyside club’s profile.
