Liverpool Transfer News Roundup: Reds linked with a reunion with attacking ace, high release clause could stop the club from signing Oyarzabal, and more – 19th June 2021

Published

Liverpool continue to be linked with several new signings as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.

On that note, let’s take a look at the latest Liverpool transfer news and rumors as on 19 June 2021:


Raheem Sterling linked with a return to Liverpool

Raheem Sterling left Liverpool for Manchester City in 2015, and has been a key player for the Sky Blues since.

However, the England international could return to Anfield, as per sports finance journalist Alex Miller.

Sterling left Liverpool in controversial circumstances as his agent Aidy Ward led a transfer to Manchester City. Ward was criticized later on for turning Sterling’s head, and he is no longer the England international’s agent.

As per Miller, Sterling’s chances of returning to Liverpool are more likely after Ward’s departure, but the fee will have to be right for a deal to materialize.

Liverpool are looking to add more bite to their attack, and Sterling would improve the quality and depth with his goal-scoring ability.

Mikel Oyarzabal’s release clause too steep for Liverpool

Mikel Oyarzabal’s impressive displays for Real Sociedad have attracted interest from Liverpool. but the reason the Reds haven’t opened talks is due to his high price tag.

Oyarzabal’s release clause stands at €65 million, which is currently outside Liverpool’s price range. The Reds want to strengthen their attack, but might have to sell some of their squad players to generate funds.

At 24, Oyarzabal would still provide good long-term value if Liverpool sign him, but his high release clause is likely to force Liverpool into considering alternatives.

Heskey feels Tielemans would be a good fit at Liverpool

Former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey has explained Youri Tielemans would fit in well at Liverpool, but has admitted the Reds may find it hard to sign him from Leicester City.

Tielemans starred for Leicester last season as they won their first ever FA Cup final, and he has been linked with a move to Liverpool.

“Tielemans is a fantastic player,” Heskey said. “Tielemans is the kind of player that would suit any midfield and any team.

“He excites you because he does the simple things very, very well – the simple passes from here to there and you look at them and think ‘that was crisp, that was nice’, that slide pass that sometimes gets cut out doesn’t with Tielemans because he is so crisp with his passing. He would fit into any team.

“I think he would suit the way that Liverpool play, but you would have to prise him from Leicester.”

Daniel Norris trade for the Brewers is nothing to phone home about

Milwaukee supporters sure were hoping for some better news, as Norris is currently sporting a 5.83 ERA this season. That’s not the kind of production you want from a reliever, which is why the Brewers receive a C grade for this deal.

Meanwhile, for Detroit, they’re getting a B+ for moving Norris. In return, Tigers beat writer Jason Beck is reporting Detroit is receiving 21-year-old pitching prospect, Reese Olson.

Blue Jays acquiring Twins ace Jose Berrios for Martin, Woods Richardson

Published

on

The Toronto Blue Jays made a big splash hours before Friday’s MLB Trade Deadline, acquiring right-handed starter Jose Berrios from the Minnesota Twins, Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith confirms.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was first to report the agreement.

Nicholson-Smith reports that the Blue Jays are sending No. 2 prospect Austin Martin and No. 4 prospect Simeon Woods Richardson to the Twins in the trade.

Berrios, who is under team control through the 2022 season, was one of the most sought-after starters on the trade market. He has 3.48 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 20 starts for the Twins this season. The two-time All-Star has spent his entire six-year career with the Twins and outside his rookie season he has never had an ERA above 4.00.

The move gives the Blue Jays a third ace starter to join Robbie Ray, Alek Manoah and Cy Young finalist Hyun-Jin Ryu. It also is the latest blockbuster move in the AL East arms race after the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays all made trades in recent days to add power bats to their lineups.

The Blue Jays enter play Friday, their first home game at the Rogers Centre in nearly two years, fourth in the division with a 51-48 record. They are 9.5 games back of the Red Sox for first in the division and 4.5 games out a wild card spot.
