Liverpool have a lot of injury issues in the opening weeks of the new Premier League season and that has affected results as they remain win less at the end of their first three outings in the competition. Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has had to deal with the loss of some first team players since the start of the season.
Frenchman Raphael Varane is a big doubt for Manchester United ahead of their preseason friendly clash with arch rivals Liverpool in Thailand. The former Real Madrid defender will likely miss the game on Tuesday due to injury. Manchester Evening News (MEN) reported that Varane was a major absentee during Manchester United training on Monday. The centre back was part of the Manchester United squad who travelled to Asia at the weekend and he was part of the training session on Monday morning. However, he was absent for theon-field action when his teammates went through their work at the training ground.
Varane and Manchester United touched down in Thailand on Saturday for the start of their preseason tour of Asia and Australia. New manager Erik Ten Hag and his players have been training at the STB Academy. It has been their training ground since they landed in Thailand at the weekend. They had a training session at the Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok on Monday as part of preparations for the blockbuster clash with Liverpool later this week.

According to 90min, Premier League giants Liverpool have slapped a price tag of £10 million on out-of-favour midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer. The Englishman moved to Anfield from Arsenal in 2017 but has struggled to secure himself a regular spot in the playing XI. Oxlade-Chamberlain, to his credit, enjoyed an excellent debut season but an injury sustained in the 2018 UEFA Champions League semi-final against AS Roma proved to be his undoing.
While the England international still continued to make several appearances and score goals, the 28-year-old never quite reached the levels expected of him on Merseyside. He has largely been condemned to the role of a substitute and found playing time difficult to come by towards the end of the 2021/22 campaign. It would appear that Liverpool are ready to part ways with Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer. With his contract with the club set to expire next year, it is now or never for Liverpool to cash in on the 28-year-old. The asking price of £10 million could prove to be a steal should interested parties manage to coax the best out of the versatile midfielder.

Liverpool are one of three ‘finalists’ who will battle it out to sign Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni this summer. That’s according to French outlet RMC Sport. They claim that the Liverpool target will no longer be a Monaco player next season, regardless of whether the Principality side qualify for the Champions League or not.
The Reds are reportedly one of the front-runners to finalise his departure from Monaco. Joining Liverpool in the race are Real Madrid and Chelsea. It’s also claimed that PSG ‘has not said its last word.’ However their task is made difficult by the fact that Tchouameni would reportedly prefer a challenge away from France.

West Ham linked with Lucas Ocampos
The Spanish outlet claims Sevilla will only sell him if a club matches his release clause. This is currently €70m (£58m), but would go up to €90m (£75m) if the player accepts a one-year contract extension. West Ham have reportedly ‘asked’ about Ocampos’ situation but Sevilla have made it clear they must pay his clause if they want him.

It’s shaping up to be a busy summer transfer window for Arsenal as Mikel Arteta puts the finishing touches to his first-team squad overhaul. The March international break is officially under way and for some, it will likely be their penultimate experience of one as an Arsenal player ahead of what is expected to be a busy summer in terms of incomings and outgoings.
This is because there is another international break at the end of the season. For example, England are in UEFA Nations League action in June with their Group A clashes against Hungary and Germany taking place before the summer transfer window officially opens on June 9.
