Klopp to the US?, Slot to fix Klopp 'headache', Alisson vs Darwin - Liverpool FC news recap

Here’s our Liverpool FC news recap for Thursday, 4th July. Is Jurgen Klopp heading to the US after leaving the Reds this summer?

Former Manchester United and United States goalkeeper Tim Howard has made an IMPASSIONED plea to Jurgen Klopp to rescue his national team before the 2026 World Cup. 

The USMNT suffered a humiliation on home soil at this summer’s Copa America, being eliminated at the group stages after picking up just three points from their three matches.

Lowly Bolivia were the only team the USA managed to beat, losing in disastrous fashion to Panama and their exit was confirmed by a defeat to Darwin Nunez’s Uruguay on Monday night.


Reds want to avoid Klopp 'headache'

Liverpool are eager to avoid a ‘regular headache’ they suffered under Jurgen Klopp now that Arne Slot is in charge of first-team affairs.

The Athletic reports that Liverpool are hoping a 'regular headache' of injury problems is now behind them. It's something that plagued recent seasons under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool's post-title-winning campaign was ruined by injuries, for instance. The Reds were without all three of their senior centre-backs by the end of January, while players in several other positions suffered long-term problems, too.

Nottingham Forest star Murillo has been linked with a transfer to Liverpool.

Liverpool transfer target Murillo has admitted that a move to Anfield would be a ‘good opportunity’ amid reports that he could leave Nottingham Forest this summer. 

Murillo, 22, was named Forest’s player of the season following a stellar campaign at centre back following his £11 million move from Corinthians in 2023.

The defender signed a five-year deal at the City Ground, tying him to Forest until 2028, but there has been speculation that he could move on this summer.


Trent gets England reprieve

Trent Alexander-Arnold looks set to be RESTORED to the England starting XI for the Three Lions’ Euro 2024 quarter-final showdown against Switzerland on Saturday. 

Alexander-Arnold, 25, began the European Championship as Declan Rice’s midfield partner, starting in each of England’s first two games against Serbia and Denmark.

He was however substituted in both matches with Gareth Southgate ultimately letting the Liverpool star slip down his midfield pecking order.
