Liverpool: Talks held with left-back; Flanagan speaks out; Everton battle over youngster
Reported target Sead Kolasinac has revealed that talks have begun over a new contract with Schalke as they seek to tie him down to a new contract before he can enter into talks with other clubs on 30th December. The Mirror report that both Liverpool and West Brom are targeting him as the Reds seek to repeat the kind of signing which saw Joel Matip move to Anfield for free from Schalke, so far proving to be one of the best signings of the summer. The Serbian has been in good form for Schalke this season, but his current club are clearly reluctant to allow him to leave.
Jon Flanagan, currently out on loan at Burnley, has spoken of his ambitions to return to Anfield to stake his claim for a starting position at the end of the season as he told the Daily Mail:
“I just want to play regular football and get back into the routine I was in two years ago. I never doubted for one second I’d be back, I’m mentally tough. We’ll see where it goes from there, and hopefully get back to Liverpool and a starting place. My ideal season? Burnley to qualify for the Europa League and Liverpool to win the League.”
Liverpool are also involved in another transfer battle as they hope to bring in Gustavo Viera from… Liverpool, say the Guardian. The Uruguayan 15-year-old is on the books of a Uruguayan team of the same name in the top flight in his home country, but has attracted interest from both Liverpool and Everton as they seek to bring him to Merseyside, alongside interest from Barcelona as they all look to take advantage of his Italian passport meaning no visa would be required.
