There is a new feeling of a promising start to the 2016-2017 season at Anfield, with four new players joining the club. It is just the other day that Jacob Njoku and Chidera Ejike flew from Nigeria to Liverpool for trials.
Now, they are training together with two other fellow countrymen, Suleiman Muhammad and Charles Ezeh with the Merseyside club. The four players hope to secure permanent deals.
The quartet is doing well, and Liverpool received them warmly, according to their agent, Babawo Mohammed. Hopefully all will be well, and the youngsters can begin their careers and steer them to greater heights.
On another note, Liverpool will pay Burnley FC a record fee of £6.5m for Danny Ings. The fee could even be more, with considering add-ons, and it could exceed £8m. Burnley will also be entitled to 20% of the any profit made on the future sale of the striker.
The Reds are having to pay these fees because Ings joined them from Burnley when he was below 24 years old, and according to regulations, his former team deserves compensation. These fees are higher than what Liverpool paid for Daniel Sturridge when he joined from Manchester City in 2009.
Other news from Germany say that Borussia Dortmund has confirmed that its skipper Mats Hummels, who is also targeted by Liverpool wants to leave the club. He wants to join his old club Bayern Munich, although the club has not expressed its interest on the defender to BVB. Other clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City are also interested in the 27-year old.
