| Sport News Today | Fox News
After their 2-2 draw in the Premier League against Manchester City last time, Liverpool are hoping to start in the Premier League now that the international break is finally done and dusted off.
The Reds remain undefeated in the Premier League and are just one point behind league leaders Chelsea. They will face Watford on Saturday.
Along those lines, here’s a look at the latest Liverpool news and rumors as of October 14, 2021.
Fabinho says he is likely to remain isolated and miss Watford’s match
Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has revealed that he and his teammate Alisson Becker might not face Watford this weekend.
The two were in action for Brazil and will have to go through a mandatory quarantine period after playing in a red list country.
Fabinho explained that the duo could head directly to Spain and self-quarantine to face Atlético de Madrid midweek in the Champions League.
“I think we will not play. We will also need to quarantine ourselves, but the club is still studying whether it is better to go directly to Spain to play Atlético and quarantine him there, without having to stay in a hotel in England, ”Fabinho said.
“I think that game against Watford will be very difficult for us, I don’t think we are going to play. Neither Alisson nor I,” he added.
Nabil Fekir says Jurgen Klopp “loved” him as a player
Nabil Fekir’s failed transfer to Liverpool made headlines a few years ago, and the Frenchman has spoken again about what really happened.
The attacking midfielder came close to signing for Liverpool, but talks were suddenly cut short despite a doctor. Eventually, Fekir was reported to have a knee problem that prevented the transfer from happening.
Fekir has revealed that there was no problem with his knee, and the transfer was broken despite Jurgen Klopp admitting to him that he loved him as a player.
“Everything was closed. I passed all the interviews, I spoke to Jürgen Klopp, he told me he loved me, we all did. When we were about to sign, there were problems with my representative and the negotiation broke down. They said it was because he had knee problems, but the truth has been proven over time. My knee is very good, ”Fekir said.
Bayern Munich to sign Liverpool goal if Lewandowski leaves in 2022
Bayern Munich will reportedly attempt to replace Robert Lewandowski with Erling Haaland if the Polish international leaves the club next year.
Lewandowski could look to a new challenge towards the end of his career, so Bayern might have to sign a replacement next summer.
Haaland is likely to be in demand next year, and Liverpool are among several teams interested in signing him. The Reds may lose it considering the finances of the deal, as Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola is likely to demand high salaries for his client.
