Coach Jurgen Klopp has insisted the Liverpool club does not need to be in the “best” state to win the first Premier League title in history.
Premier League officials are currently aiming to restart the season in mid-June, while the Liverpool club is only six points away from the championship.
Since the Premier League was launched in 1992, the Merseyside team have been unable to get their hands on the title, and the last English championship they have won has been in 1990. Before the return of this season, Klopp of Liverpool tried to ease all the pressure on his team, which was 25 points behind Manchester City.
Liverpool hunt for new stars
Liverpool are looking to recruit Talles Magno – who is likened to “new Neymar” at a low price after COVID-19.
Talles Magno is only 17 years old but has had a full season with Vasco da Gama in the Brazilian National Championship (Serie A). This talent is also a familiar star in the young teams of Brazil.
Playing off the left wing, with good speed and personal techniques, Talles Magno is expected by many to be Brazil’s “new Neymar” despite his poor scoring ability. After 17 appearances for Vasco da Gama, Talles Magno scored only 2 goals. In the youth team, the achievement of Talles Magno is much higher. He has scored 5 goals in 10 matches for Brazil U17.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool scouts tie up Talles Magno. In addition to the ability to kick the wings, this 17-year-old talent can also play in the center. Liverpool also believe that this is the right time for them to recruit this young striker, because Vasco da Gama is having difficulty because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Vasco da Gama has struggled with large debts in recent years. The situation with them is worse because of the impact of the disease. To cope, Vasco da Gama is ready to let their young talents go cheaply. Two years ago, they sold promising star Paulinho to Bayer Leverkusen for £ 17 million, much cheaper than the player’s price then.
Of course, it is not easy for Liverpool to achieve the goal. Currently, several major clubs also pursue Talles Magno, including Paris SG and Benfica. In particular, Benfica has bid 2.5 million pounds but was rejected.
