Liverpool leading three-team race for Deportivo starlet Pinchi

  Liverpool leading three-team race for Deportivo starlet Pinchi Having lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in the January transfer window, you could argue that Liverpool are short of options in the wide areas in attack and the Reds have been linked with a move for Deportivo youngster Pinchi. The 22-year-old is yet to make his debut for the senior Deportivo side in La Liga but is the star man of their B team competing in the Segunda División B Group 1 in Spain’s third tier. Pinchi is a native of A Coruna and came through the ranks at Deportivo, but his form this season, netting six goals in 22 appearances thus far, has alerted a number of top European clubs, with considerable interest coming from the Premier League. His contract with Deportivo expires in the summer and the rapid winger is a reported target for Liverpool, according to the Guardian, who note the Reds have moved ahead of Manchester United and Tottenham in the race to secure his signature.

There were reports that Butland was ready to force through a move to Liverpool, but that appears to be far from the case.

Speaking to The Mirror, Lambert said this:

“I only heard about the story this morning and that Jack had quashed the rumours. Butland is one of the best goalkeepers going around, in Europe terms as well. Without a doubt the boy’s a terrific goalkeeper, a good lad as well.”

“Does it surprise me that rumours fly about? Not really, because rumours fly about all good players and he’s one of the best.”

“He’s too good a guy, too good a pro to be affected by any talk. He’s been terrific since I’ve been here and as a person he’s been great too.”

Carragher claims Liverpool cannot afford to lose Salah .
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has claimed that the club cannot afford to lose Mohamed Salah to Real Madrid. Salah has been linked with a summer move to Madrid after his exceptional start to life at Liverpool. The winger has scored 21 Premier League goals in 25 appearances for Liverpool since his arrival from Italian side Roma. This has reportedly caught the attention of Real Madrid, who are keeping tabs on his development at Liverpool. Philippe Coutinho was sold to Barcelona in January and Carragher says that Liverpool cannot lose Salah so soon after the departure of Coutinho. Speaking to TalkSport, Carragher said this: “Well, fingers crossed. He’s only just arrived so we want to enjoy him for as long as we can.” “There’s no doubt when you are a player that good, it’s not just Liverpool’s problem – it’s any club’s problem if Real Madrid or Barcelona ever come for one of your players.” “Let’s not forget [Cristiano] Ronaldo when he was possibly the best player in the world left Manchester United; he left when Manchester United were still playing European Cup finals.” “It’s very difficult, and in some ways you have to sort of just accept it and try and get the biggest fee you can possibly get – as Liverpool did with Coutinho.” “I’d expect Salah to be at the club for the next few years. The contract that he signed and the position Liverpool are in with Coutinho just going, they can’t afford to let another big name player go.
