Buvac Update

Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac has agreed terms with Fenerbahce, Bosnian journalist Haris Mrkonja confirms - but he is not the club’s first-choice target.

According to his sources at Turkish publication Sporx, Fener are still in talks with other coaches despite having an alleged deal with Buvac.

The Bosnian was widely expected to return to Liverpool next season, but the current reports cast doubts over his future alongside Jurgen Klopp.

Default Denis Cheryshev, Aleksandr Golovin and Liverpool's latest transfer poser

One game, that's all it has taken. One game for Liverpool supporters to rip up their list of transfer demands and scribble down some new ones.

That's the impact a World Cup can have.

The summer's tournament began on Thursday evening in one-sided fashion as hosts Russia thrashed a desperate Saudi Arabia 5-0.

Russians rejoiced. The Saudis were subdued. And some Reds fans couldn't help themselves.

The performance of several Russian players prompted them to reassess who they want to see stepping out at Anfield for the opening Premier League game of the season against West Ham United.

First up, Denis Cheryshev.

The Villarreal left winger didn't even start on the bench for a Russia side considered the worst in generations and missing several key players through injury.

Indeed, it took an injury to another regular starter, the unlucky Alan Dzagoev, for Cheryshev to be thrust into the fray midway through the first half.



The 27-year-old made the most of his opportunity, showing clever feet to score Russia's second before the break and then contributing their fourth with a brilliant long-range finish with the outside of his left foot.

From an also-ran to a national hero, it was quite the turnaround for Cheryshev.

Liverpool were linked strongly with the player during his time at Real Madrid, where he spent four years but only played seven times before moving to Villarreal in 2016 after previous loan spells at the Yellow Submarine as well as Sevilla and Valencia.

Then there's Aleksandr Golovin.

At 22, he is, with some justification, regarded as Russia's great new hope having impressed after coming through the ranks at CSKA Moscow.

Against Saudi Arabia, his crossing provided two assists and his well-struck free-kick set the seal on Russia's dominant win.

Even before the tournament, though, Golovin was reportedly being monitored by Manchester United and Arsenal, although claims after Friday's game suggested he was close to agreeing a move to Juventus.

Some Liverpool fans, though, now want the Reds to reappraise their targets.

Of course, they should know better than to be seduced by efforts in a World Cup opening match.

Look at El Hadji Diouf and Salif Diao, who had both already agreed a move to Anfield before starring for Senegal in their shock win over France in 2002.

We all know what happened next.

The World Cup is a superb showcase, the ideal shopping window. But they've never been the sole barometer of a player's worth.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho 'angered' by Liverpool fixtures for 2018/19 season

Jose Mourinho has been left 'angered' by Liverpool's 2018/19 fixture list, with the Reds facing six home games following their six Champions League group stage games.

The Premier League's 20 clubs discovered their schedules on Thursday morning, with Liverpool hosting West Ham on the opening day.

And they were also handed six Anfield fixtures directly following their Champions League exploits - including games with Everton and Manchester United.

United boss Mourinho, however, is said to be angry after Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have all been given an even split of three home and three away games on those match days.

The Times claims Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettinho are 'relaxed' over the situation the schedule has raised, but the Portuguese coach is mindful of the difference, and is 'likely' to address it next season.

Liverpool, of course, face six away trips before their European exploits, including Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Jurgen Klopp will not discover his side's fate in the Champions League until August 30, where the Reds are expected to be placed in pot three as they look to go one step further and lift their sixth European Cup.

Default Roma owner denies Alisson transfer claims - but what does it mean for Liverpool?

Roma owner James Palotta has been forced to go public and deny Alisson's move to Real Madrid is imminent.

The Brazilian goalkeeper has been linked with a move away from Italy this summer, with Liverpool keen observers over the past year.

But the club informed the player's representatives earlier this year to not expect a bid, seemingly paving the way for Real Madrid to make their move.

Palotta had been quoted confirming the move - at a price of 78million euros (£68.1m) - but has now moved to deny those suggestions.

“I have read with much amusement the quotes attributed to me about the transfer market," he said. "In fact I was joking around with a group of guys and responded sarcastically with a reference to the popular rumours on Twitter and in the papers since I’ve been in Italy.

"There was nothing serious about anything I said whilst making pizza. Just stupid American humour that some don’t get.”

Alisson is still expected to join Real Madrid, although fresh claims have cast slight doubt over the move.



Reports in Spain claimed journalists spoke with Real president Florentino Perez, in private, after he unveiled new coach Julen Lopetegui on Thursday.

Reports in Spain claimed journalists spoke with Real president Florentino Perez, in private, after he unveiled new coach Julen Lopetegui on Thursday.

According to @MadridSportsEs, Perez laughed off Alisson's price tag, and said he could join Liverpool for 78million euros.

"There will be a few (transfers) but little and special," he is quoted as saying. "They talk today about Alisson but for 78million euros Liverpool can buy him (laughs).

On the Champions League final, he was also reported as saying: "The concussion, people say a lot of nonsense, but they pushed (Sergio) Ramos before and they hit him."
