Fans react to news of Adrien Rabiot's possible move to Liverpool

Liverpool's start to the campaign has seen them live up to their pre-season billing as Manchester City's nearest challengers and Gomez will be hoping to emulate six-time Premier League victor Ferdinand by lifting the title at the end of the season.

Liverpool have finished the last two seasons in fourth place, though before that they finished in the top four just once over seven seasons.

José Mourinho has made no secret of the fact that he thinks his current crop of central defenders are clowns, and speculation abounded that he was set to further boost their collective confidence by signing a 37-year-old free agent who last played in the Premier League the season before last.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reiterated the fact that young players are finding playing time hard to come by.

"I'm so privileged to have been a part of this club for so long, and hopefully even longer now".

Asked how he would respond if the umpire in the next match did the same thing as Lahyani, Federer said: "That won't happen". The faintest of whispers to a players box - if noticed by the umpire - will earn a warning and in all likeliness, a fine.

The German manager said, "Jordan embodies entirely what it means to be a Liverpool player in this modern era of football".

"He takes nothing for granted and strives to learn and be better for his team at all times".

Jurgen Klopp's men have got off to the best possible start this season, winning all four games, and only conceding one goal, with many tipping them to challenge reigning champions Man City for the crown this year.

"When you win four times it sounds really insane to say this, but it is still part of the pre-season for a very long time after the summer". I want to be here for as long as I can be.

The La Liga champions believe they have one big advantage - De Jong's desire to play alongside Lionel Messi - and that has led to Barça getting "good feelings" and a "positive response" from the De Jong camp, which would appear to make them favourites to sign him.
