Coutinho clause denied

Sanches in possible Juve switch

Renato Sanches has been offered to Juventus, according to Sport Mediaset.

The Lille midfield has been able to revive his career in France and was able to showcase his quality with Portugal at Euro 2020.

Liverpool are on the look out for a new midfielder and have been linked with the former Benfica man.

Arsenal have also been linked with Sanches, who endured a difficult and forgettable loan spell at Swansea back in 2017.









Reds agreed deal for highly-rated Clark

Liverpool have agreed a fee for the highly-rated Newcastle teenager Bobby Clark, according to the Evening Chronicle.

The 16-year-old midfielder set to join the under-18s at Anfield.

The Reds are looking to add homegrown talent to bolster their academy ranks, as they are no longer allowed to sign overseas players under the age of 18.
