The Liverpool team has been hit hard by the return of its player, Luis Diaz, who again suffered a knee injury during the team’s current camp in Dubai.
The 25-year-old injured himself in Arsenal’s match against Liverpool last October.
Diaz is expected to miss Liverpool for three months.
Paris targets Rashford
Paris Saint-Germain is targeting England international Marcus Rashford, Manchester United player and striker.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the owner of Paris Saint-Germain, admitted that he had previously tried to sign Rashford.
United want Sumer
Manchester United want to strengthen their goalkeeping position by signing Swiss goalkeeper Jan Sommer.
Sommer is out of contract with his current team, Borussia Mönchengladbach, which in turn will not cost United’s coffers.
The German club opened the door to Sumer’s departure next January in order to take advantage of the financial compensation.
Hazard’s future at Real
The future of Belgian Eden Hazard depends more on leaving Real Madrid than on staying, and the royal club will not stand in front of the player if they want to in January.
And everything indicates that the Belgian player will leave Real Madrid in the summer of 2023, despite the expiration of his contract in 2024.
And according to the Belgian press, there is more than one possible destination for Hazard, perhaps the most prominent of which is his return to Chelsea, as well as Juventus, and there is also France’s Lille, with the last option being for Eden to go to the American league.
Call the crisis
FC Barcelona cannot register their young star, Jaffe, with a first team number, due to wages and Financial Fair Play rules.
Javi remains registered in the youth category and continues to play in jersey number 30 until he finds a place in the first team and wears jersey number 6.
It is not known if the club will be able to sign Jaffe as he does not have room on the payroll to award him this new contract that was signed last September.
Possible departure to Naples
Napoli are preparing for the possible departure of their player, Hirving Lozano, and the beginning of contacts to sign a replacement, the player of Sassuolo, Armando Llorente.
The Mexican forward only has 18 months left on his contract with Napoli, which makes next summer the ideal time to take advantage of his departure.
Lozano is one of Napoli’s highest paid players, he earns around 6 million euros per season, and he is still in the interest of a number of first division players.
Fiorentina hope to thwart Liverpool’s attempts
Fiorentina is trying to upset the plan of the English club Liverpool, which wants to include the Moroccan representative Sofiane Amrabat after he achieved great performances at the World Cup in Qatar and attracted the interest of many first league teams.
Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso personally contacted Soufiane Amrabat, congratulated him on his success with Morocco and tried to convince him to stay with the team at least until the end of the season.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has met with the player’s representatives ahead of the World Cup, with the Reds leading the race to secure the midfielder’s signature in January.
French Paris Saint-Germain wants to renew the contract with Italian Marco Verratti in the upcoming period.
According to French reports, Verratti will stay at the Parc des Princes for the next four years.
Verratti’s contract with the Parisian club is said to expire in the summer of 2024, but the board have decided to amend and renew his contract to keep him as long as possible.
Paris tempts Bellingham
A press report has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain are entering the race to sign Jude Bellingham, who is a target of Europe’s big clubs in the coming period.
For their part, Borussia Dortmund are asking for 150 or 100 million euros to part with Bellingham’s services.
And the Englishman could become one of the most expensive players in the upcoming period, due to what he recently presented with his homeland at the 2022 World Cup.
Bayern strengthened Musiala
The sports director of Bayern Munich Salihamidžić revealed that they plan to renew the contract with Jamal Musial.
Musiala’s contract is extended until June 30, 2026, but the Bavarian giants still want to extend it to ensure it lasts as long as possible, while also being more in line with his current value, which has doubled after the levels he has presented this season.
In an interview with the German newspaper “Bild”, Hamidić said: “Jamal’s mother and his agents told us that they are very happy with him, and we want to sit down with them to discuss his future at Bayern Munich.”
It is significant that Musiala played 14 games with Bayern Munich in the German championship this season, scoring nine goals and another seven.
A German press report has revealed the fact that Bayern Munich are interested in signing Atletico Madrid’s Portuguese international star Joao Felix.
Bayern are no longer interested in signing Joao Felix after being a top option last summer, contrary to recent reports in Spain.
And Atletico Madrid expressed their willingness to sell Felix next January for 140 million euros, knowing that Chelsea, Manchester United and St. Germain interested in its inclusion.
