Liverpool ‘suffer blow in their pursuit of Fiorentina wonder kid’ with Federico Chiesa set for Viola stay

Liverpool have suffered a blow in their pursuit of Fiorentina starlet Federico Chiesa.

The Italian winger has been linked with a move to Anfield but Corriere dello Sport report that the club are now confident of keeping hold of their pearl.

Jurgen Klopp was expected to make a move for the exciting prospect but the 20-year-old is now expected to develop further at the Artemio Franchi.

A contract until 2022 will enable the Viola to profit from Chiesa for a few more years until a likely sale like Federico Bernardeschi last summer to Juventus.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp refuses to give up on Emre Can and again insists Daniel Sturridge is going nowhere

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool must do all they can to keep Emre Can at the club – and once more declared Daniel Sturridge is going nowhere.

German international Can is heading towards the last six months of his deal, and the Reds are still some way from agreeing terms over a new contract.

The midfielder, a doubt for this weekend’s clash with Chelsea, wants a release clause in his deal but the Merseysider’s are reticent to hand him one.

As such, amid interest from the likes of Juventus, Can is looking increasingly likely to depart on a free transfer next summer.

However, Klopp is desperate to extend the 23-year-old’s stay at Anfield and is willing to wait until the last available opportunity.

Barcelona considering swoop for Manchester City star as Lionel Messi exit rumours continue

Barcelona are weighing up a shock January swoop as they look for alternatives should their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho again prove unsuccessful.

Boss Ernesto Valverde is desperate to bring in the Liverpool star having chased him all summer, but has accepted that he may have to look elsewhere should the Reds refuse to budge on their stance that the Brazilian is not for sale at any price.

According to Spanish publication Diario Gol , the Catalan’s plan B is to move for Manchester City playmaker Bernardo Silva , who has struggled to adapt to the Premier League since his switch from Monaco and and has been unable to displace any of the club’s established attacking stars.

City chief Pep Guardiola is thought to be a huge fan of the 23-year-old and sees him as a big part of their future, but the lack of game time so far could mean Silva is open to the prospect of moving to La Liga.
