Liverpool morning made the chance of a free transfer and rumours of output of Naby Keita


Here are your headlines for the morning of Liverpool for the 18 June.The reds can repeat the trick from Shaqiri with Fraser

Liverpool could repeat the transfer of Xherdan Shaqiri with the wingman in Bournemouth, Ryan Fraser.

Fraser should leave Bournemouth after he refused an agreement in the short term to extend its current contract with Cherries beyond the 30 June.

As Tom Victor wrote the capacity of the Scots should not be disregarded simply because he plays for a team that fights to avoid relegation.

Although the performance of Fraser have fallen following a brilliant campaign 2018/19, it always displays the number of assists (xA) of 4.0, placing it just below Mohamed Salah (5,7), Sadio Mane (5,2) and Roberto Firmino (5,0).

Given the desire of Jurgen Klopp to pick Shaqiri from Stoke City, recently relegated in 2018, it would perhaps be no surprise to see Fraser in the shirt of Liverpool next season.

But when Fraser was tentatively linked to the Reds before the window of January, the ECHO was understood that Liverpool had no interest in preparing a bid for him with Klopp more than satisfied with the attack options at his disposal.

It remains to be seen if this position could change given the landscape uncertain caused by the coronavirus and the suspension of the football.

Naby Keita tied to the release of the Reds

Naby Keita could leave Liverpool for AC Milan this summer, according to MilanLive .

The midfielder of guinea had arrived from RB Leipzig in 2018 for 52,75 million pounds sterling. Despite its many promises, its progress has been hampered by minor injuries and lack of chances to regain the rhythm.

Information in Italy suggest that the player of 25 years could possibly regain the former boss of Leipzig Ralf Rangnick in Milan, the German is supposed to take over at the San Siro.

The report also suggests that Liverpool is considering the midfielder of Wolverhampton Wanderers Ruben Neves replacing Keita.

But all this seems highly speculative, without any suggestion that the Reds are looking to take forward Keita.

as he prepares to hit the ground running when the campaign of Liverpool resumes.

A change of Guardiola hinted at a plan to reduce the gap to Liverpool

With the title race almost over, and sprinkled, the boss of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola, already seems to be planning for the next season.

For the match of City against Arsenal on Wednesday evening, Guardiola has trusted the centre-back 19 year old Eric Garcia.

The young Spaniard, who starts his third championship this season, has been engaged in the defence of the city alongside Aymeric Laporte.

This new partnership with City suggests that Guardiola is trying to build a new defensive foundation before trying to recover the title to Liverpool the next season.

Garcia has also been quite successful, completing 97% of his passes – before a collision with the goalkeeper of the town, Ederson, who has put an end to his game.

With Phil Foden outgoing also of the bench to score a third late for the City, the approach of Guardiola shows his faith in the youth.
