Liverpool receives transfer request from Yuri Tielemans

A year later than expected, Euro 2020 is finally here.

While a society of signs – not to mention football – takes tentative steps towards a return to normalcy, the tournament is welcome even for Liverpool fans for whom the international game is usually a terrible inconvenience.

England, as one of the hosts, are among the favorites, with Reds skipper Jordan Henderson hoping to make an impact at some point in the final after recovering from a serious groin problem.

There are seven Liverpool players who will take part in the competition, some with genuine ambitions to lift the trophy at Wembley on July 11.

Asked which Euro 2020 player the Reds should be looking to sign, ECHO Liverpool chief reporter Ian Doyle said: “I still think Liverpool should replace Gini Wijnaldum given the questionable injury records from too many of their remaining midfielders.

And Youri Tielemans is that one. Similar to Wijnaldum, Tielemans is a versatile midfielder and most importantly he is extremely resilient having played in every Premier League game since his debut at Leicester City in January 2019.

Les Renards will not let the Belgian go on the cheap. But where there is a will, there is usually a way. “

Reece James claims Sadio Mane

Reece James hailed Liverpool’s Sadio Mane as one of the toughest players he has faced in his career to date.

The England international, who heads to Euro 2020 as European champion at club level after helping Chelsea beat Man City last month, has drawn attention in the Champions League final keeping Raheem Sterling silent.

And reflecting on his season for Thomas Tuchel’s side, he admitted that he sees both the former Rouge and Mane as the two toughest players he has locked the horns with on the flanks.

“Everyone knows how good a player Raheem Sterling is,” he admitted to reporters. “It’s very hard to play against him.

“He’s probably one of the best wingers in the world right now and we’ll need him for this tournament.

“Raheem Sterling is definitely up there (like the toughest) and I would probably say (Sadio) Mane too.”
