Steven Bergwijn fee
PSV Eindhoven are prepared to sell winger Steven Bergwijn for a bargain fee.
Thats according to Italian website Calciomercato via De Telegraaf, who say Steven Bergwijn is available for £17.5million.
Bergwijn, 21, made his senior debut for Ronald Koeman’s Holland during their 3-0 Nations League victory over Germany last Saturday.
And four goals in ten appearances for the Eredivisie champions has seen a host of European heavyweights linked with his services.
Calciomercato claim Premier League duo Manchester United and Liverpool are monitoring Bergwijn, along with Inter Milan, Torino and Bordeaux.
The Sun also report that United and Liverpool both sent scouts to watch Bergwijn during PSV’s Champions League loss to Inter Milan earlier this month.
Liverpool set Divock Origi fee
Liverpool want upwards of £20million for Divock Origi.
That’s according to the Liverpool Echo, who claim Jurgen Klopp is ready to sell the Belgian international.
Origi, 23, hasn’t played a minute of competitive action for the Reds since returning from a loan spell at Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg.
And Liverpool have made the decision to sell.
Everton, Borussia Dortmund, Wolves and Galatasaray have all been linked with the striker – but it’s unclear whether the quartet would be willing to meet his hefty valuation.
New deal for Daniel Sturridge?
Daniel Sturridge could be awarded a contract extension with Liverpool.
Sturridge, who was awarded the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award yesterday, made four appearances in September and netted three times – including a scorcher against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
And reports suggest the England international will be rewarded with a new deal.
The Sun claim Sturridge could land a £140,000-a-week contract extension that’s dependent on appearances.
Wagner not fooled
Huddersfield manager David Wagner expects a near full-strength Liverpool side for Saturday’s Premier League clash, saying his opposite number Jurgen Klopp could be using his injury concerns as a smokescreen.
Speaking today, Wagner played down suggestions that Liverpool might be without a string of top names after the likes of Mohamed Salah (groin), Virgil van Dijk (rib) and Naby Keita (muscle) suffered injuries on international duty.
Sadio Mane has also had surgery for his hand injury and is a big doubt for the game against struggling Huddersfield.
Wagner, who was Klopp’s team mate at German side Mainz in the 90s, said his friend could be up to his old tricks again.
“I know Jurgen long enough that I know he loves to use some smokescreens,” Wagner said. “Don’t believe everything you read – I expect that most of his players will be on the grass on Saturday.”
