Liverpool not only welcomed Nottingham Forest to Anfield but also Steven Gerrard and his family, as Lio Gerrard was made a mascot for the day, which Virgil van Dijk immediately recognized
Although it was Mo Salah who walked onto the pitch with the young Scouser, he and his legendary father were welcomed onto the pitch at half-time to take a penalty in front of the Kop.
As they walked off the field and back up the tunnel, the youngster walked past the players who were set to come on for the second half, and our No.4 recognized him.
In a brief but telling display of the Dutchman’s caring side, he ruffled his hair – something we’d all love the big man to do to us!
According to reports, Liverpool is interested in signing the ‘incredible’ forward praised by Eto’o, and Klopp has made a bid of £29 million for him in 2020.
According to Defensa Central, Liverpool are interested in signing Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze
According to the report, the Reds want to sign the 23-year-old this summer, but they will face competition from Arsenal, West Ham, Everton, and Aston Villa in the Premier League.
The Merseyside club appear to be looking for a right-sided winger to provide cover for Mohamed Salah.
The Nigeria international is nearing the end of his current contract, so he could be available on a cheap deal if the Spanish club decides to cash in on him while his price is high.
Chukwueze is being pursued by Liverpool.
With so many options on the left wing, a right-sided player could be a valuable addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
Chukwueze has 13 goals and 11 assists in 41 appearances this season, proving to be an important player for Villarreal.
It’s easy to see why Premier League clubs are interested in the 23-year-old, who has been dubbed a ‘incredible’ footballer by Barcelona legend Samuel Eto’o.
Liverpool made a £29 million bid for the Nigerian back in January 2020, according to France Football. However, that offer fell far short of the La Liga club’s £54 million valuation.
Instead, Klopp has rekindled his interest in the winger, and the Reds may make a move at the end of the season.
