Watford enquire for Alberto Moreno

  Watford enquire for Alberto Moreno Watford have lodged an official enquiry for Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno, according to IBTimesUK. The Reds defender had a superb game against Bayern Munich in Liverpool’s recent friendly, but looks likely to be surplus to Jurgen Klopp’s requirements ahead of next season. Liverpool have already signed Andy Robertson from Hull in this window for a fee of around £8m, offering a rotational option to James Milner. This could spell the end of Moreno’s time at Anfield, with Watford seemingly keen to bring him in this summer. Marco Silva’s side are somewhat weak on the left hand side of defence, and Moreno would undoubtedly bolster the Hornets’ options, while offering competition to Jose Holebas. It’s stated in the report that Silva is a big fan of Moreno’s speed and technical ability, and a move is most certainly plausible if Klopp is content with the two defensive options at his disposal at left-back. Moreno signed for the Reds back in 2014 but has failed to tie down a regular place in the starting line-up.

Klopp's side upped the ante in the second period and Salah won a penalty which was scored by Firmino with considerable ease. The former Chelsea man then got the goal his play deserved, but in the end it wasn't enough with both sides taking a point a piece.

Silva handed a debut to just one of his seven new summer signings, Nathaniel Chalobah started in midfield after he made a permanent move away from Chelsea. Newest acquisition Andre Gray was on the bench. Meanwhile Salah made his first start for Jurgen Klopp's side, lining up on the right of a three pronged attack with Mane and Firmino.

Klopp tried to inspire and kick-start his team into action, but Liverpool looked very flat after going one down, Tom Cleverley causing more discomfort when he sent over a looping cross that Mignolet just about dealt with. 

After the home side's strong start, they were about to be undone by a goal against the run of play on 29 minutes. The Reds' Player of the Year for last season, Mane was slipped in after a superb passage of play which saw Emre Can split the Hornets defence and the 25-year-old finished with aplomb. 

For all of Liverpool's relief, they were to be right back to where they were a few minutes previous as Doucoure put Silva's men 2-1 ahead on 32 minutes. Cleverley found himself in acres of space on the right-hand side of the box and after Trent Alexander-Arnold failed to clear his low cross, the Frenchman finished from close-range. 

The Merseysiders' frustrations were clear to see when Mane was booked for a late tackle on Doucoure, but Salah almost opened his account when he toe-poked over from close range. The half-time whistle gave Klopp the chance to re-rejuvenate his troops as the home side went in the much happier of the two. 

Whatever the German gaffer said at the interval it clearly had an effect. Salah got through on goal and was hauled down by Heurelho Gomes with the referee awarding the Reds a penalty. Firmino stepped up and sent Gomes the wrong way with Liverpool equalising for the second time of the afternoon. 

Then, that man Salah was involved again in a mad few minutes which saw the capture from Roma put Klopp's side into a 3-2 lead. Dejan Lovren chipped a delightful ball through and Firmino latched onto it and steered his attempt goalwards. The ball looked to be looping wide, but Salah came charging in and knocked it in from almost the goal line.

The Hornets really lost their sting after they fell behind for the first time during the game. Gray was brought on in their third and final switch, but it was Joel Matip who almost increased Liverpool's lead but his header hit the bar. 

Other chances of note came from Lovren and Salah as the Reds tried desperately to put the game out of reach. Divock Origi and James Milner were introduced late on, the latter replacing Salah who had looked superb throughout the second-half. 

Then, right at the death, Britos headed home after the ball bounced back up from the crossbar after Richarlison's effort. Mignolet parried it onto the underside of the bar and Britos headed in from a yard out to send Vicarage Road into raptures. 

Liverpool submit offer for teenage star Victor Mollejo .
Liverpool have made an “important” offer for Atletico Madrid’s teenage sensation Victor Mollejo, who made his senior debut for the club on the weekend in their friendly against Leganes, according to a report on the Mirror. The 16-year-old has attracted interest from clubs all around Europe and Atletico Madrid face a battle to hold on to one of their finest young talents. Mollejo is considered as the brightest prospect in the whole of the Atletico academy and this was shown as Diego Simeone gave the youngster his debut on the weekend. The young striker is keen to follow in the footsteps of his footballing idol Fernando Torres as he wore the number 35 shirt, the same one which Torres wore on his debut for the Spanish club and the Reds will be hoping that he will follow Torres’ career path also by joining the Anfield club. The forward has represented the Spanish national side at under 16 level and has also shown his prolific form in front of goal as he managed to find the back of the net 30 times for the youth team last year. Liverpool are keen to enhance their academy and challenge the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City and bringing in Mollejo could do this. The Reds have a ban on signing academy players but would hope to agree a deal to sign the youngster when the ban is lifted.
