Afternoon Bulletin

Transfer News:

Simon Mignolet’s career at Liverpool is yet to be decided. The keeper told Belgium media that he will decide whether he will stay at Liverpool after the World Cup. Mignolet lost his spot in the Liverpool team early in the season to Loris Karius.

Emre Can has addressed the rumours of him demanding £200k per week as false news. The midfielder wrote on Instagram: “I’ve just returned from the international duty with the German team and working on coming back from injury. Interesting stories in the press about me in the press! I’m no longer going to comment on any false stories or rumours! Looking forward to getting back on the pitch asap.”

Rumours of Real Madrid being interested in Mohamed Salah have been shut down by Guillem Balague. Real Madrid are focused on signing Eden Hazard and Robert Lewandowski according to the Spanish correspondent.

International News:

Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk was on the scoresheet for Netherlands in the friendly against Portugal. The Dutch captain also kept a clean sheet as they won 3-0.

Joe Gomez may be a doubt for Liverpool’s fixtures against Manchester City in the Champions League. The England defender suffered an ankle injury in the 1-0 win against Netherlands on Friday. It is unclear as to how long Gomez will be out for.

Emre Can was forced to miss Germany’s international friendlies with a back injury. Can initially suffered the injury against Watford and has returned to Melwood. There is a possibility Can could feature against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Club News:

Nathaniel Clyne has stepped up his training as he nears a return to the first team. Clyne hasn’t featured at all for Liverpool this season after having back surgery. With Joe Gomez out with an injury, Clyne may be forced into the team earlier than anticipated.

The entire Liverpool squad will reunite at Melwood on Wednesday as the international fixtures come to an end. Jurgen Klopp will have 72 hours with the team before the early kick-off clash against Crystal Palace.
