THE BREAKING NEWS: “We’re ready to sell FOUR Arsenal stars to raise money for Kylian Mbappe”- Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke discloses that he is willing to sell FOUR Arsenal players who are becoming a liability to the club in order to bankroll the signing of Kylian Mbappe. Real Madrid has given up on the €180 million-rated French superstar.
Arsenal will sell four players to cover the transfer of a Liverpool fan, as Real Madrid makes a move for Kylian Mbappé.
Arsenal may sell four more players in January to fund the signing of a professed Liverpool supporter, as Real Madrid makes a bid for Kylian Mbappé.
After a dismal Premier League tie with Luton Town on November 5, Liverpool returns to play in midweek, taking on Toulouse in the Europa League. A win for Jürgen Klopp’s men would ensure qualification to the knockout stages and European football beyond Christmas.
Furthermore, it would allow Klopp to rest more of his key players for the next two group-stage games, with the games against LASK and Union Saint-Gilloise being inconsequential in the larger scheme of things.
Klopp has a few injury concerns going into the game against the French, with Virgil van Dijk, Curtis Jones, and Ryan Gravenberch all out due to illness, hamstring and knee injuries.
Van Dijk is expected to return for the game against Brentford, while the status of Jones and Gravenberch is unknown. Following tonight’s game against Toulouse, Liverpool will host the Bees in the Premier League before the year’s last international break.
Klopp will want his team to have plenty of momentum heading into the big league game against Manchester City on November 25. Here, Liverpool.com scans the other major clubs in the Premier League and around Europe to see what’s going on at the other clubs.
Arsenal will offload four players.
Arsenal may be forced to sell four players in the January transfer window in order to sign Brentford striker Ivan Toney.
According to The Athletic, the likes of Emile Smith Rowe, Thomas Partey, Aaron Ramsdale and Eddie Nketiah could all be sold in the winter window in an effort to sign Toney, who has confessed to being a Liverpool fan in the past.
“I’ve always been a Liverpool fan, but I’ve always liked watching Arsenal and how they play,” Toney remarked on the Diary of a CEO podcast. “But yeah, I’m a Liverpool boy, a Liverpool fan at heart.” According to the report, Brentford values Toney at $122 million (£100 million/€114 million).
According to Liverpool.com, Arsenal appears to be doing a lot of work in the winter transfer window by selling four players in order to sign one. Furthermore, there is no dispute about his potential, but Brentford’s assessment of Toney appears astronomical, especially given the player’s lengthy suspension.
Real Madrid ‘gives up’ on Kylian Mbappé.
Real Madrid has been chasing Kylian Mbappé for years at this point, but according to Spanish media, Los Blancos have finally given up. According to Spanish publication Cadena Ser, Madrid believes that after years of pursuing Mbappé, the French superstar isn’t worth the financial burden due to his age (25 in December), salary, and signing on demands.
Florentino Pérez appears to have finally acknowledged defeat in his pursuit of Mbappé, even if he leaves Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer at the conclusion of the season. It’s unclear where Mbappé would go if not to Real Madrid.
According to Liverpool.com, one would think that Madrid’s potential exit from the Mbappé chase gives Liverpool an even better chance of signing him, but his wages and signing on fee would simply be too much for the club, and so the pool of teams Mbappé could sign for is depressingly small for a player of his immense talent.
Real Madrid remains his most likely destination, even if the current report implies it is concerned about the economy (which cannot be a surprise).
